Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rachel Bilson is Beautiful in Beads

Rachel Bilson’s style rarely fails to impress me. I just can’t get enough of her feminine, vibrant, dynamic aesthetic. Whether she’s on a red carpet or running errands, Rachel always looks polished and well put-together. She isn’t afraid to take risks, but she never goes to Gaga-levels of extreme style, so her looks are accessible and can serve as reliable inspiration to us all.

Embellishing a classic little white dress with beads is a fabulous idea, and this one from ASOS is amazing. Its flow and beads make the dress more eye-catching and different. Combined with a black knit moto jacket, this becomes a more casual look, with the androgyny of the jacket neutralizing the super femininity of the dress. Add in a great snakeskin bag with a chain strap and silver heels for a metallic edge, and this quickly becomes a fun ensemble for a night out. Switch out the silver heels for some flats, and you could easily transition this into a day look, or change the jacket for a more formal presentation. You could do so much with any of the pieces in this outfit!
