We’re used to seeing celebrities in red carpet dresses, but their off-duty looks are just as inspiring for celebrity style. Here’s how to get five perfect summer outfits for less.
Maxi dress with denim jacket
Sarah Michelle Gellar rocked one of summer’s favourite celebrity style looks, pairing a floral maxi dress with a denim jacket. This is a great look for festivals and summer picnics – simply accessories with a long necklace and pretty leather sandals.
Get the look for less: The 1&20 Blackbirds Floral Maxi Dress is a relaxed fit maxi dress that takes us back to our 90’s grunge days, but with a thoroughly modern edge.
Tartan shirt with maxi dress
Jessica Alba was spotted wearing a casual grey maxi skirt paired with a plain white tee and a tartan button-up for a comfortable look that is both casual and cool. She completed the outfit with a studded cross-body purse.
Get the look for less: The Madalyn Double Split Maxi Skirt is similar in style and is a comfortable trend for spring and autumn. Wear it with a t-shirt or singlet for day, and cover up with a blazer at night.
Black and white striped dress
Colour blocking with bold prints is one of the latest ways to celebrate the season with a dress that pops and stands out in a crowd. Emma Watson’s striped dress doesn’t need accessories – just pair with classic black ballerinas and you’re ready for a lazy brunch.
Get the look for less: The Motel Suki Stripe Dress is a great everyday dress – pair it with a colourful belt for a pop of colour.
Printed drawstring pants with a white singlet
Gwen Stefani is the queen of fashion and a celebrity style inspiration thanks to her unique taste and the risks she takes with her wardrobe. Even on a casual day with her boys, wearing printed drawstring pants and a plain white singlet, she managed to look effortlessly chic. Lightweight printed pants are a summer holiday must-have, just slip on and team with your favourite t-shirt and flip flops.
Get the look for less: Suboo Leopard Print Pants are universally-flattering. Replace your sandals for heels for an easy day-to-night look.
Red shorts with black blazer
Looking for the perfect Saturday afternoon outfit for catching up with friends? Rachel Bilson’s laid-back style shows she isn’t trying too hard, but still looks polished. Vibrant shorts are a great pop of colour, but stop short of looking too clown like when they’re toned down by a classic white t-shirt and well-cut black blazer.
