With the awkward transition from winter to spring, outfit inspiration does not come easily. Street style looks from our favourite stars or fashion icons are foolproof in doing the job, yet carry a far less desirable price tag. So I give you the top 3 ‘looks for less’, suited to a variety of styles and occasions, allowing you to steal her style.
Despite my uncertainty toward animal print, this is a recent favourite of mine. A versatile look that can be carried from day to night, Rosie’s elegant yet edgy combo is enough to satisfy the masses. Whilst her YSL coat was of a not so student-friendly price of $4,325 dollars, ASOS provides a version similar in style for a far more appealing £40. Rosie manages to combine the statement coat with Tom Ford leather trousers, which in my opinion, are equal in levels of daringness. With a price tag to match, River Island offers a far cheaper alternative, that carry the flirty flare that Rosie also manages to pull off.
Because which looks for less post in March doesn’t relate to the Oscars? It would be rude not to acknowledge March’s most talked about affair. One of my favourite looks was from the Vanity Fair After Party – Miley Cyrus is not one I would personally associate with the term ‘style icon’, yet her champagne and black gown is to die for. If you fancy channelling this look for a night out, Missguided offer a monochrome midi that is far more appropriate for the average student – in both price and style, at £30.
Woman of the moment, Meghan Markle’s classic, elegant style renders her with a fashion icon status that will undoubtedly continue into her future life as a royal. After debuting this look on International Women’s Day, the J Crew coat she so effortlessly models sold out instantly. A similar style could easily be worn for everyday, including to campus. Boohoo offers a waterfall-style version for £25 – being all black, it allows for everyday wear and versatility. Black, cropped trousers are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe – at £18, ASOS does not fail in providing.
