[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities (like super sexy Cameron Diaz) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less…and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
Emma Roberts starred in a lot of my favorite C/D-list projects back in the day (like Unfabulous and Aquamarine – don’t judge me) but this Friday, we’re all going to be able to see her in the highly anticipated fourth installment of the Scream series. I am beyond stoked to see if her horror movie acting chops are equally as awesome as her comedic timing.
In the meantime, I’ve been drooling over her thoroughly fabulous clothes. She has a sleek, edgy, feminine style that she rocks with amazing confidence (or #swag, as Justin Bieber would so eloquently articulate it). Emma combines a variety of interesting pieces to create fun and unpredictable looks that are perfect for any fashion-forward college girl to emulate.
This is a super casual, but still incredibly fierce look. A basic neutral shirt and distressed shorts are clearly staples we all have in our wardrobe, but Emma elevates it to a whole other level with her accessories. Over-the-knee socks are a cheeky addition to any casual outfit (and provide good coverage/warmth when the weather is as bipolar as it tends to be in spring). Then, to spice it up, go for some sexy animal print shoes. This is a great way to subtly incorporate a bold trend into your wardrobe. Add a neutral tote for a bit of elegance, and now you have a visually interesting and easy look for day.
