Celebrity style is the happy medium between couture runways and everyday dressing. But, sometimes even celeb fashion needs a little interpretation, and we, here at CheapChicas are here to help you with the translation.

Selena Gomez is one of the best dressed ladies out there.  Whether your 21 or 41, this A lister conveys class and style that transcends across generations.  Take her all-over printed top and pant suit from Kenzo, for example.  This updated take on the classic “jacket and trouser” combination is an amazing, new way to wear an all-over print.

Only downfall… we live in the real world! While this look is perfect for an International music video, it doesn’t exactly scream “I’m ready for happy hour!”  Here are a few keys ways to take your look from celebrity to reality:

  1. Choose one, key trend to focus on: What’s your favorite part of this outfit? Do you like the all-over print? The bold cap toe pumps? The fab metallic bag and belt? As a whole, this look can seem overwhelming but broken down, it’s easier to pick and choose what you love and want to emulate.
  2. Pair basic with bold:  Say your favorite part of Selena’s ensemble is her printed top and belt….pair it back to your classic, black ankle skinnies or even denim for a polished and trendy, yet understandable look!
  3.  Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize: When you have the right accessories, you can change the entire “mood” of your outfit. Imagine Miss Gomez’s suit with a sleek envelope clutch, simple strappy sandals, and a slicked back pony tail… and Voila!  Her look just became more versatile and understandable with three small and easy changes every woman can achieve.

Aside from these tips, the most important key to any outfit is Confidence. So remember….Don’t just wear it, ROCK IT!
