Take Her Look [For Less]

This year’s Wimbledon tennis championships has not only been a platform to showcase the prowess of the world’s best tennis players, but it has also been a platform for celebrities to show off their impeccable style.

Some celebrities in attendance went all out on their Wimbledon ensembles, and Chrissy Teigen was no exception. According to EOnline, the Sports Illustrated model attended the tennis tournament this week in a striped Magda Butrym dress trimmed with fringe, which she paired with a white Valentino studded bag, nude heeled sandals by Stuart Weitzman and Oliver Peoples sunglasses.

Teigen certainly stunned in her polished, trendy Wimbledon look, but perhaps more stunning about her look is its price tag — her entire outfit totaled $4,878! While we want to steal her look, there is no way we can pay almost $5,000 for it. So we set out to recreate her look from head to toe for under $200. Read on to see how we did!

Finding a dress to rival Teigen’s $1,730 Magda Burtrym dress was quite possibly the most difficult part of this look for less scavenger hunt. So instead of searching for a dress with a similar print, we instead chose to look for a dress with a similar cut, and we landed on the IRO Hailee Sleeveless Mesh Contrast dress from Nordstrom Rack. While this dress does not have the same color scheme or fringe detail as Tiegen’s dress, it does share a similar neckline while its mesh bodice mimics the stripes on the Burtrym frock. The other major difference this dress presents is its price: it’s currently on sale for only $104.91.

Although nothing can compete with Tiegen’s $2,345 Valentino bag, we found a cute studded wristlet by Carlos Santana that is definitely a contender. The Carlos Santana Serita Studded Zip Top Wristlet gives us the same studded look in a more subtle, dainty way. The gold studs are laid over a similar crisp white leather, making it the perfect alternative to Tiegen’s more expensive bag. The best part? This wristlet is available for only $29.97 at NordstromRack.com.

Teigen completed her look with nude Stuart Weitzman heeled sandals for $398, but we knew that we could find a similar heel for much less that would not compromise style or comfort. We found the perfect replacement in the form of the Steve Madden Gea sandal. This sandal is offers the same slim straps as Teigen’s Weitzman heels, but for a fraction of the cost; these heels are available at 6pm.com for only $44.99.

Sunglasses were the last item to check off of our look for less list, and we found a cute cat eye wayfarer style to mimic Teigen’s $405 Oliver Peoples sunglasses. The Fossil Cat Eye Wayfarer sunglasses deliver a similar shape to Teigen’s sunnies but for only $19.97 at NordstromRack.com.

Teigen’s Wimbledon outfit cost a lofty $4,878, and while we love her look as is, we’d rather take her look for less. Our reimagined outfit inspired by Teigen’s original look comes in just under our $200 budget at $199.84, making this look affordable for shoppers of all price points.

Happy Shopping!
