Everything 5 Pounds
While it’s easy to dress straight from the latest runways when you’re a celebrity, A-listers prove it’s still possible (and just as easy) to look chic in budget-friendly fashion. All it takes is a few smart shopping choices and you’ll be red-carpet-ready in no time. Got a taste for Olsen-twin-style but only a shoestring budget? Not to worry. There are plenty of affordable ways to achieve the looks of your favourite tastemakers – without the celebrity price tag!
Few fabrics sing of summer quite like gingham. And celebrities like Alexa Chung are updating the perennial print in a lot of good ways. Gingham seems to have captured everyone’s hearts, as you can’t go on Instagram without seeing the tablecloth-check print. Checked tops, cropped trousers and dresses have become the unofficial uniform of social media, which we’re 100% fine with.
But how do you avoid looking like a picnic basket? If this style doesn’t usually make an appearance in your wardrobe, stick with lighter colours that will have you looking more classic than costume.
