Wearing white after Labor Day is one of the most well-known fashion faux-pas — and myths. But in case that is an actual rule of style etiquette, Elle Fanning got in her last white ensemble of summer just before the holiday.
On September 2, Fanning was spotted at Los Angeles International Airport wearing a white lace-embellished chiffon dress, which she paired with what InStyle reports are Simon Muller x Mascot sunglasses. She completed her on-the-go look with light pink ankle booties and a Louis Vuitton crossbody bag.
While Fanning’s entire outfit is the object of our envy, we can’t help but zero in on her luxurious Louis Vuitton purse, the Speedy Bandoulier 30 bag. It’s not shocking, however, that this covetable crossbody comes at a very high price — a $1,390 price, to be exact. But if you love Fanning’s entire ensemble, we found all the pieces necessary to recreate her look for less, much less than the cost of her crossbody. Read on for the results!
First on our shopping list was a lace-embellished chiffon dress to mimic Fanning’s frock, and we found the perfect alternative in the form of the Jessica Simpson 3/4 Sleeve Chiffon Dress from Zappos. Delivering a similar floating silhouette and lace details, this dress will surely pass for Fanning’s, but will only set you back $128.
Finding light pink ankle boots to pair with our look-alike dress was like searching for a needle in a haystack, but we finally landed on the Seychelles Lucky Penny Booties from 6pm. While the color is subtle, they will certainly add a bit of dimension to the soft look for $89.99.
Circular sunnies will add a whole new level of cool to your look, and the Follow the Lines Round Sunglasses from Urban Outfitters will do just that. These glasses will fool all your friends into thinking that they are much more expensive than their $15 price tag.
Our look for less wouldn’t be complete without a bag to rival Fanning’s Louis Vuitton look. While nothing compares to a genuine Louis Vuitton design, this Barrel Body Satchel by Dasein delivers a comparable style at a fraction of the cost. Done in a rich tan, this satchel will be your new go-to bag for all of your favorite outfits. Its similar barrel construction comes in a close second to its first best feature, that being its $47.99 price.
Elle Fanning’s fashionable ensemble may have cost upwards of $1,390, but our recreated ensemble will give you a similar look from head to toe for a total price $280.98. Now you can look like a star without spending like a star!
