Draper James debuts collection with Eloquii

Following a quick-selling collaboration, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James and extended-size brand Eloquii are teaming up yet again for an all-new collection.

According to InStyle, the companies are releasing a revamped summer series that offers “gingham on a flattering flare dress, lightweight chambray, floral prints, and fresh stripes. With summer-ready styles up for grabs, InStyle says that the collaboration also has two other very important features: “nothing is priced over $145 and sizes go up to 28.”

While the looks are very on-trend — hello, gingham! — they are also as classic as can be, offering simple, clean silhouettes that will last season after season. And with pieces priced under $145, it’s style and accessibility all rolled into one.

Check out the collaboration right here.

Take Her Look [For Less]

Nothing says it’s the holiday season quite like Christmas sweater — or a Fair Isle sweater, to be exact.

Actress Reese Witherspoon was spotted trolling about Los Angeles on Sunday, Dec. 13 in the cozy winter style, which she paired a classic pair of straight-leg jeans. She completed her out-and-about look with a red and white striped tote and black slip-on sneakers.

Witherspoon’s festive sweater may just be the perfect piece for all of our holiday needs, but its price isn’t so perfect. Courtesy of her Draper James line, the sweater — the Fontaine Fair Isle Sweater — totals $200, and quite frankly, that’s money that we could be using to buy gifts for our friends and family. So we set out to recreate Witherspoon’s entire look for less than $200 — read on for the results!

Finding a sweater to rival Witherspoon’s Draper James style was fairly simple, and we found the perfect style in the form of the Raglan Pullover Sweater from American Eagle Outfitters. Featuring a similar red and blue pattern draped about the shoulders, this sweater also features a hidden element: a small heart motif throughout the body of the sweater. This sweater will easily pass for Witherspoon’s look, but it will only cost you $41.21.

We found the perfect pair of straight-leg jeans from Old Navy in their Curvy Straight Jeans. Done in a lighter wash with a slight whiskering at the hip, these jeans look like Witherspoon’s jeans, but will only set you back $25.

Completing our look for less is a pair of slip-on sneakers — the Report Arvon Reptile Slip-On Sneaker from DSW, to be exact. These look-alike slip-ons will add extra detail to your outfit with its reptile-embossed faux leather, but they won’t take any extra from your wallet, costing only $34.95.

If you love Witherspoon’s festive casual look, our look for less can be yours for only $101.16, almost $100 less than the cost of her Draper James sweater. Just add some Wayfarer sunglasses and a striped bag, and you’ll be ready for the holidays in no time!

Take Her Look [For Less]

Reese Witherspoon is as known for her on-screen acting roles as she is for her off-screen style. And this week, Witherspoon proved yet again just how fashionable she is.

According to InStyle, the actress was photographed out and about in Los Angeles, California on September 2 wearing a polka dot top from her clothing line, Draper James. She paired her classic top with casual skinny jeans and a navy satchel, while also sporting a tote from her Draper James collection. A gold chain necklace, dark sunnies and bright red pumps and lips polished off her casual, on-the-go look.

Witherspoon’s polka dot Draper James top — the Nashville shirt in Navy Pearl Dot — is certainly the object of our envy. Its original $175 price tag, however, is less than enviable. That’s why we set out to create Witherspoon’s classic southern style for less than her top’s $140 sale price. Read on for the results!

We easily found classic navy polka dot top to rival Witherspoon’s Draper James style in the form of Forever 21’s Boxy Polka Dot Top. This sweet style not only shares the same pattern and color as Witherspoon’s top, it also shares its straight cut throughout the body. For only $12.80, this shirt is sure to pass for Witherspoon’s pricey Draper James number.

Next on our shopping list were casual skinny jeans, and we found the perfect pair from Forever 21. Their Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans in the dark denim wash not only provide the same slim silhouette throughout the leg of the jean, it also provides whiskering and rinse details at the hip and thigh reminiscent of Witherspoon’s casual denim. These jeans are the perfect base for our look-alike ensemble, and they’ll only set you back $29.90.

A red pointed-toe pump will add a much-need burst of color to our reimagined look, and the Single Sole Pointed Toe Pumps from Charlotte Russe does just that. Delivering a similar color and silhouette, these pumps will take your look to the next level for only $29.99. And what’s more — Charlotte Russe is offering 30 percent off and free shipping on these heels so you can take Witherspoon’s look for even less!

Last but certainly not least is a rich, navy satchel, and there is no better way to complete our recreated look than with the Nyssa Chain Satchel from Charming Charlie. Done in an equally saturated navy, this neutral bag will not only pair with our look-alike ensemble but also with all of your other favorite outfits. This satchel will look much more expensive than its $39 price tag.

Reese Witherspoon’s charming ‘Nashville’ top from her Draper James collection may have been on sale for $140, but our head-to-toe look for less will only set you back $119.59. Just add a bright red lip and you’ll have Witherspoon’s southern style down pat.

Take Her Look [For Less]

Some women seem to just have an effortless style, and Reese Witherspoon is certainly one of those women.

The actress was spotted out and about on August 5 in Los Angeles, wearing the Printed Gilmore Skirt from her Draper James clothing and lifestyle collection, which features a dainty pink and purple floral print, side-seam pleated pockets and a feminine scalloped hemline. She completed her look with an easy white v-neck tee, red strappy sandals, mirrored sunglasses and a grey heathered tote.

Witherspoon’s flirty daytime look can be yours, so long as you’re willing to pay $150 just for her Draper James skirt. While $150 isn’t a terribly high price to pay for what’s sure to be a quality item, we thought that we could recreate her whole look from head to toe for under $150. Read on to see how we did!

Finding a skirt to rival the Draper James style was a difficult task, but we thought the Nothing Compares Skirt from Tobi was a sufficient replacement. Offering an equally dainty floral with a frilled hemline, this $28 skirt is sure to add a bit of femininity to your casual summertime looks.

Next on our shopping list was a white v-neck tee, which we quickly found at Forever 21. Their classic v-neck tee opens up your neckline, drawing attention to your gorgeous face. And for only $3.90, you’ll be able to stock up on this wardrobe essential.

A bright red sandal adds a pop of color to our reimagined look, and what better way to add some color than with the Lyla Toe Ring Sandal by Donald J. Pliner. Featuring a similar strap pattern to Witherspoon’s sandals, this style courtesy of Nordstrom could easily pass for Witherspoon’s exact shoes. On sale for $69.97 from its original $178, this sandal is an easy way to imitate Witherspoon’s style for less.

Mirrored sunglasses will add a whole other level of cool to this look-alike outfit, and the American Eagle Half Frame Icon Sunglasses will do just that. These sunnies feature blue-tinted, mirrored lenses similar to Witherspoon’s shades, and these will complete your look for only $15.95.

Our look for less wouldn’t be complete without a grey heathered tote, and luckily, Forever 21 had the perfect tote to polish off our look. The Classic Oversized Tote not only comes in a similar shade to Witherspoon’s style, it’s also big enough to hold everything from your laptop to a jacket and everything in between. And the best part — it’s only $12.90.

Although we loved Reese Witherspoon’s moderately-priced Draper James floral skirt (and her whole look, for that matter), we thought we could recreate her entire look for less than her skirt’s $150 price tag. Coming it at $130.72, our look for less totaled only $19.28 under the price of her skirt. So if you love her look, now you have all the pieces to recreate it for yourself!
