Star-Style--Gina-Rodriguez

Star Style: Gina Rodriguez

Written By: Robin Reetz

Our latest girl crush? Superstar actress Gina Rodriguez.

If you aren’t familiar with Gina, let us break it down for you: She won big at the Golden Globes for her performance in Jane the Virgin, and she’s currently killing it at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

We love Gina’s confidence, authenticity, and – of course – her sense of style. Seen here at a party in Hollywood, Gina pairs a knee-length metallic skirt with a comfy black tee and a fun, patterned clutch.Beaded Clutch | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

To score Gina’s Star Style: Pair the Midi Skirt in Pleated Metallic from ASOS ($20.85) with a Babydoll Tee Shirt from Target ($11.98), BCBG’s Acrobat Metallic Heels ($72), and top it all off with the sorpresa Beaded Clutch at Nordstrom ($48).

Gorgeous, not to mention star-worthy. We’re in love.

What We're Wearing: Knit Beanies | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

Have you noticed? All of us at Cheap Chica’s are big hat fans. Like, really big hat fans. Nothing completes an outfit quite like a good hat – no matter if it’s fun and sporty, a classic wide brim hat, or our winter standby: the slouchy knit beanie.

Our favorite beanies are as cute as they are cozy, and will help to give even the plainest of winter outfits that “just off the slopes” look. This year, we’ve added the Space Dye Beanie ($20), the Pom Cuffed Beanie ($14), and the Marled Knit Beanie ($3.90!) to our collections, and are eyeing Target’s $6.48 beanie. You can never have too many, right?

All are cute, cozy, and make the perfect accent piece to any outfit.

What’s your hat of choice, Chicas? Are you a beanie gal or do you prefer wide brim?
