Look for Less: Ashley Tisdale

Pooch and purse in arms, Ashley Tisdale takes on her day in an fresh look for summer. A go-to outfit for running errands, a backyard BBQ or having lunch with the girls, Tisdale goes urban cowgirl with her All-American blue denim and white blouse. A nubby leather bootie with a stacked heel adds to the down-home charm, while a posh quilted purse gives this look an glam finish. To steal her look for less, pair denim blue cutoffs with a floaty white blouse, brown booties, and a girly edge, like a glam bag or stack of gold bangles.

1. Sam Edelman Petty Boot: A go-to bootie for outfits and seasons to come, Sam Edelman’s Petty Bootie is an instant classic with its olive brown color, nubby finish, and stacked leather heel. A side zipper ensures a snug fit, and an always-classic almond toe guarantees years of wearability. Pair with shorts and skinnies, even a flirty floral dress (think Taylor Swift’s sweet country style).

2. Big Buddha Zoe Bag: Go quilted to capture Ashley’s So Cal glam. Quilted bags are all the rage, from classic Chanel to this affordable Big Buddha bag. Finished with tassels and glammed up with gold chain straps, this bag can be carried over the shoulder with its cross body strap or in hand with its double handles. Pair with any look, summer to fall, for a polished finish.

3. GAP 1969 Raw Edge Denim Shorts: All-American. It doesn’t get more summer in the States than denim blue cutoffs. Whether you choose your shorts with a raw edge or roll ‘em up like Tisdale, get an ultra fresh look when you pair them with white. GAP makes theirs with a raw edge, button fly and slight stretch for the perfect fit.

4. Old Navy Split Neck Button Front Top: Unbelievably affordable, star style is yours with this split neck top from Old Navy. A tunic cut is fresh with a long, slim body, button cuffs and a breezy split neck. Its lightweight gauze fabrication makes it an easy-breezy throw-on-and-go with cutoffs or over your swimwear.
