Look For Less: Blake Lively
If you weekly salivate over Blake Lively’s Gossip Girl style, not to mention her celebrity street style, you are in good company. Although her wardrobe is fabulous and certainly styled with the help of professionals, there is no reason you can’t steal that style for yourself. Making celebrity style even more accessible, I’ve found pieces from stores that let you steal Blake Lively’s on set outfit for yourself without breaking the bank. A furry, fuzzy vest….a delicious burgundy suede pump…a silky chiffon skirt…a lacy tank. Notice the textural elements to all these pieces, from suede to fur to lace to chiffon, a trick every fashionista is employing this season.
1. Full Tilt Lace Womans Tank ($10)
See through and sleeveless, this little tank sets a feminine stage for the rest of Blake’s girly, glittering ensemble. A plunging scoopneck and racerback complete this layering piece from front to back.
2. Juicy Couture Polar Vest ($278)
Layer on luxury. This polar vest adds the second layer of texture in Lively’s look, and a cozy, comfy one at that. This friendly faux fur vest has a v-neckline and skinny ribbon belt. Layer it over skirts or leggings, colored cords or leather skinnies; it adds instant glam to any outfit.
3. Statements by DCK Stone Bib Necklace ($22)
Our starlet’s top half is completed with statement jewelry: a dramatic set of over-sized and sparkling stones. Their crackle finish catches the light, and according to trend, adds more texture. Five large, organically-shaped stones hang from this bib necklace. Complemented by gold chain.
4. Club Monaco Gwen Skirt ($98)
Pleats-a-plenty. So girly, so glam, Blake Lively completes the second half of her look with a pleated, chiffon skirt. It’s metallic shine shimmers with your every move. Tuck in a tank to show off its tidy banded waist.
5. Dolce Vita Bryann Platform Pumps ($190)
Supple burgundy suede adds a solid layer of color to this girly, neutral ensemble. Rounded toes and a chunky heel and platform ensure that this footwear works from office to play. Pair with a kicky skirt or a knubby cord.
6. Rebecca Minkoff Covet Ostrich-Stamped Leather Tote ($269)
Perfectly prim. This ostrich-stamped tote has vintage appeal with its structured shape and compact cuteness. A removable shoulder strap adds an additional carrying option to its classic top handle. Gold hardware.
