Take Her Look [For Less]

Red carpets are often reserved for movie premieres and award shows, but on October 12, the red carpet was rolled out for Cosmopolitan magazine’s 50th Birthday Celebration in West Hollywood, California. And with an abundance of celebrities — from Olivia Culpo to Maria Menounos — attending the event, there was no shortage of great fashion. But our favorite look happened to come courtesy of the always-fashionable Sarah Hyland.

The Modern Family star stepped out at Ysabel in what InStyle says is a sleek black pantsuit by DSquared2. Going for a sexier look, Hyland opted to go sans blouse, completing her look with a layered choker at her neck and sheer houndstooth pumps by Nicholas Kirkwood.

Hyland’s red carpet style is certainly the object of our envy, but its price is less than enviable. Her DSquared2 suit — which seems to be a single-button version of the Sergeant Suit — costs a lofty $2,960. Her Nicholas Kirkwood Prism Lace Houndstooth pumps also cost a pretty penny, totaling $598.26. With her outfit costing $3,558.26, taking her look for our own may be out of the question. Or is it? We set out to find all the pieces necessary to take her look for under $200, and the results may surprise you. Read on to see how we did!

First on our shopping list was a blazer worthy to serve as a substitute for Hyland’s DSquared2 number, and we found it in the form of the Satin Lapel Tailored Blazer from Missguided. This blazer features a single-button style and deep v-neckline reminiscent of Hyland’s jacket, while its satin lapel also invokes the sheen of her DSquared2 look. For as similar as these blazers are, they differ in one important area: price. This Missguided piece will only set you back $59.90.

To complete our pantsuit look are the ASOS Crop Trousers. Featuring a similar slim-cut and cropped-leg silhouette, these trousers will easily pass for Hyland’s DSquared trousers, but will only cost you $39.41.

Finding houndstooth pumps to compete with Hyland’s Nicholas Kirkwood style was no easy task, but we finally landed on the Martina Pointed Toe Pumps from Nine West. Although these pumps aren’t sheer, they feature an exact houndstooth pattern to replicate Hyland’s heels. These Nine West heels will polish off your outfit for only $59.99.

To add a little bit of shine to your look, try out the Cutout Collar Choker from Forever 21. Mimicking Hyland’s double-strand choker, you can add this choker to your look for a mere $6.90.

Although Sarah Hyland’s Cosmopolitan 50th Birthday Celebration look cost $3,558.26, we were able to recreate her entire look for less — a whole $3,392.06 less, with our look-alike ensemble will only set you back $166.20.

Take Her Look [For Less]

August went out with a bang — or should we say a ‘grand slam’ —with the last day of the month playing host to the 15th Annual USTA Foundation Opening Night Gala in New York City. And while the gala was for a good cause with proceeds benefitting the USTA Foundation, which serves to bring “tennis, education, and health curricula” to children and adults, the event was also filled with some great fashion.

Our favorite look came courtesy of Amanda Seyfried, who attended the event in what InStyle reports was a black and white scallop-hem dress by Red Valentino. She completed her gala-ready look with a floral pouch and black pointed-toe heels.

While Seyfried’s look is the object of our envy, it comes at a price that is not-so enviable. Her floral pouch alone, which The Daily Mail reports is by Givenchy, costs a lofty $450. But if you love her entire outfit, we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her look for less. Read on for the results!

Finding a dress to mimic her Red Valentino number was quite the task, but we thought that the GUESS Colorblocked Fringe-Lace Bodycon Dress from Macy’s came pretty close. This dress not only invoked the scallop detail at the hemline of her dress, it also features a black and white colorblocking reminiscent of the Red Valentino frock. But this look is sure to cost much less, coming it at $94.40.

Next on our shopping list was a floral clutch to rival Seyfried’s Givenchy style, and we though the Steve Madeen Noelle Floral Clutch from DSW did just that. Done in an equally dainty floral, this clutch is given a bit of an edge with tonal studs embossed into the flap. And for only $34.95, you’ll have a style similar to the Givenchy clutch at a fraction of the cost.

Our look for less wouldn’t be complete without a classic pointed-toe pump, and the Nine West Rocha Platform Pump from DSW does the trick. These heels can be paired with outfits far beyond our look-alike ensemble, making their $59.95 price money well spent.

Amanda Seyfried’s U.S. Open Gala look cost at least $450, and that was only for her Givenchy floral pouch. But our recreated look will have you gala-ready for only $189.30. Now that you have the perfect outfit, all you need is a gala to wear it to!
