More often than not, Hollywood A-listers tend to go for designer pieces, but Blake Lively recently showed us that they, too, have a soft spot for clothes that come with a less-shocking price tag.
Spotted out in the streets of New York, the blonde beauty rocked a pair of a $40 blue Old Navy classic skinny jeans–and she made it look extra-expensive. The actress elevated the old trousers with a crisp white button down with double breasted pockets. But being the fashion-forward femme that she is, the mom of two couldn’t resist adding a couple of designer statement pieces to the mix like her pair of black pearl-embellished ankle strap heels from Stuart Weitzman, blue studded Fendi mini bag, and a gold crossbar necklace from Jennifer Meyer.
Replicating this sleek style doesn’t have to be costly. Stars have been incorporating high street chic into their looks, as Rachel Bilson was also spotted wearing the same pair of Old Navy jeans. This only proves that anyone can achieve a celebrity-approved style without breaking the bank (think punching up a shirt-and-jeans ensemble with accessories with gilded accents à la Blake Lively). This actress truly shows us the true style icon that she is who can make even the most regular pair of bottoms look trendy.
