Take Her Look [For Less]

Although we are a few months beyond the reach of the summer blockbuster season, the show must go on, and red carpets are being continually rolled out for the latest movie premieres of the fall. And on Oct. 19, the stars of the recently released Nasty Baby strolled down the red carpet at the film’s premiere at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California.

Our favorite look of the night came courtesy of Kristen Wiig. According to Just Jared, Wiig wore a pale blush Brandon Maxwell crop top that she paired with matching trousers, pairing the whole ensemble with Sophia Webster shoes. She completed her look with a tousled updo and minimal jewelry.

Wiig’s sexy-meets-sophisticated look stole our hearts, but its hefty price tag, however, left us cold. Her crop top — the Suit Top Bustier — is from the Brandon Maxwell Spring 2016 Collection, which alone costs a lofty $825 from Moda Operandi‘s Brandon Maxwell trunkshow. Couple that with her trousers — the Cropped Wide Leg Trouser — for $795, and we’re looking at an outfit that costs upwards of $1,620. But if you want to take this look for your own, we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate Wiig’s entire look for under $200. Read on for the results!

Finding a crop top and trousers in this unique blush/oatmeal hue was rather difficult, which led us to expanding our search to include other neutrals. Just then, we landed on the Notched Crop Top from Forever 21. Although it’s done in a stark white, the straight neckline invoked the top of Wiig’s crop top, while its notched hem served as an attention-getting device that works in a similar way to the rounded hemline on the Brandon Maxwell top. Coming in at only $12.90, this top is a great piece from which to build our look for less.

To complete this look, we opted for the Premium Crepe Wide Leg Trousers from Missguided. Featuring a similar wide-leg silhouette and high-waisted design, these trousers will perfectly complement your crop top, and it will do so for only $51.

Although Kristen Wiig’s Brandon Maxwell ensemble cost upwards of $1,620, we were able to recreate her entire look for not only less than $200, but less than $100, coming in at a mere $63.90. At a price like that, you can go splurge on some killer heels to pair with your new outfit.

Happy Shopping!
