It Only Costs How Much?! Stars Who Love a Bargain
EXPRESS CROP TOP
Often celebs don’t get to keep what they wear on the red carpet. But we have a feeling Brooklyn Decker was allowed to go home with this shrunken black sweater, considering it goes for under 50 bucks (and is still available at Express stores).
NINE WEST PUMPS
STELLA & DOT PENDANT
We’ve gotten accustomed to seeing stars’ jewelry and accepting that we’ll never own it unless we start a Bling Ring. But Olivia Munn’s “Rebel doesn’t require us to break the law, because it has a very manageable $79 price tag.
It makes sense that America’s Sweetheart wears basics from America’s mall store. fights that dreaded L.A. chill (can you hear our N.Y.C. sarcasm?) with this zip-up jacket, originally $98 and available in green for $39.99 now.
No time to write a caption. Too busy clicking over to buy Alessandra Ambrésio’s sheer-paneled onesie for $119.99.
Victoria Justice’s Versace mini is so far out of our budget that it’s not even worth discussing. However, at 80 bucks, those patent shoes are all we want to talk about.
We’ve got it on good authority that printed pants are here to stay. But if you’re hesitant to splurge on a pair for fear that they’ll go out of style, pick up these floral ones (seen on ) for 68 bucks.
OLIVIA + JOY BAG
JOE FRESH SHORTS
may be one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, but does that stop her from wearing $19 paisley-print bottoms from a mall store? Nope.
What’s better than the fact that is wearing distressed boyfriend denim with a $69.90 price tag? That they’re now 40% off and cost $41.94!
You know how some celebs wear jewelry that necessitates a team of security guards? $38 brass-and-turquoise danglers probably don’t require that.
Abbie Cornish eschews Louboutin, Vuitton and Casadei for a brand that’s way more accessible (and easier to pronounce). She’s sporting mesh stilettos on sale for $59.98.
ANN TAYLOR SHORTS
As cute as $68 AllSaints tank dress looks layered under a sweatshirt and leather jacket, we bet it would be even more smokin’ when paired with strappy heels and a fitted blazer.
STEVE MADDEN SANDALS
This dress is so Sienna Miller – but on a regular-girl budget. The star played up the hippie-chic vibe of her $61.09 ASOS smock dress with granny glasses and lace-ups, but neutral accessories would look great too.
Instead of borrowing diamonds that require their own bodyguard, rocks a pair of jade green Shopbevel earrings, worth roughly 70 times less than her Fendi dress.
Another star who does high-low like a pro: , who styles her $80 Topshop denim dress with a pricey designer bag and booties. We were bummed that Hough’s dress sold out on the site, but then we found this equally cute one for 30 bucks less.
EF COLLECTION BANGLES
One of Isla Fisher’s EF Collection diamond bangles is real – and the other three are faux. Best part? You’d never know the difference unless she told you.
MELINDA MARIA EARRINGS
MODERN LUX TOP
LIA SOPHIA NECKLACE
Jamie Chung has found the simple necklace that will go with everything in our closet – and she spend just under two Jacksons to get this $38 “Raise the Bar” necklace from Lia Sophia.
We can’t nab you her designer gowns or Harry Winston jewels, but we can find you fun graphic sweater. It’s available for $76 at Topshop.
FRENCH CONNECTION TOP
This might be the first time we can afford a bling-y necklace worn by a star on a red carpet. The one Lucy Hale selected for the American Music Awards from the celeb-adored line weighs in under 30 bucks.
H&M COAT & MALI BEADS BRACELETS
She may have the world’s most enviable closet, but that doesn’t mean it’s also the most unaccessible one. bundles up in her $79.90 H&M coat, plus a set of MaLi Beads bracelets, including this pretty $37.50 “Claire.
C. WONDER SWEATER
All new moms like appreciate a bargain (hey, babies are expensive!). No wonder she picked this chic “Starstruck” sweater from C. Wonder – it’s only $64.99 but makes a major impact.
VINCE CAMUTO HEELS
Hello, perfect party shoe! We’d say we want to borrow these brocade-heeled, golden-platformed Vince Camuto “Ritz” heels from Krysten Ritter, but at $59.99, we don’t mind buying a pair of our own.
The key to making this simple $94.99 Lacoste “Elbow Sleeve” oxford shirt dress a knockout? As shows, it’s all about the accessories. It’s great for brunch with studded sandals and an edgy bag, but would look perfect for work with heels and a belt as well.
It’s totally acceptable to splurge on that comfy, cozy cardigan you’ll wear all the time. But luckily, you don’t have to because January Jones found one from Tulle for under $55. Not even necessary to calculate the cost-per-wear!
LOVERS & FRIENDS TANK
C. WONDER SHADES
Things are looking rosy for , who shades her eyes with a pair of C. Wonder “Vintage Wayfarer” sunglasses, which retail for just $68.
HOUSE OF HARLOW 1960 JEWELRY
You can’t trust the B in Apartment 23, but you can trust Krysten Ritter to find a good deal. Here, she mixes high and low in the form of a designer Sportmax dress and $59.90 Aldo “Fravel” heels in an eye-catching fuchsia hue.
ALTERNATIVE APPAREL TOP
Alternative Apparel pullover (a favorite among tons of Hollywood ladies) is an amazing find at $40.
