Take Her Look [For Less]

Wearing an all-black ensemble in the middle of summer sounds like a fashion faux-pas. But the ever-fashionable Zendaya Coleman proved this week that the monochromatic look can be a cool style to rock under the hot summer sun.

InStyle reports that the actress was spotted out and about in New York City earlier this week wearing a black culotte-style jumpsuit with cutouts at the waist by Solace London, which she paired with simple black heels and layered gold necklaces.

Coleman’s beautiful Solace London jumpsuit, appropriately named the Divine Jumpsuit, is currently available at Shopbop for $213. And while this isn’t such a high price to pay for a high-fashion look, we know that her look can be recreated for well under her jumpsuit’s $213 price tag. Read on to see the results!

Since this jumpsuit has such a unique structure, we knew that it would be easiest to reconstruct this look with separates. So to mimic the the double sweetheart bodice of Coleman’s Solace London style, we chose the Black Sweetheart Mod Bustier Top from Love Culture. This top’s sweetheart neckline is not as severe or angular as the Solace London bodice, but at $22.95, this crop top has all the features necessary to begin to recreate Coleman’s look for less.

Culottes are a huge trend right now, so finding a great pair of black culottes was simple. The Glamorous City Streets Black Culottes from Lulu’s offers a similar high-waisted, wide-legged silhouette reminiscent of Coleman’s jumpsuit for a fraction of the price, coming it at only $53.

A single strap heel completes our look for less, and the Elsi Black Single Strap Heels from Lulu’s certainly do the trick. These look-alike sandals will perfectly polish off your look for only $22.

While Zendaya Coleman’s Solace London jumpsuit looked simply ‘divine,’ its $213 price tag was, by no means, divine. So if you want to take Coleman’s look but a $213 jumpsuit isn’t in your budget, our look-alike outfit gives you all the pieces to recreate her look for only $97.95 — that’s a savings of $115.05! Style your hair in a chic top knot, and you’ll look like Coleman’s stunt double!

Take Her Look [For Less]

When a celebrity visits a stock exchange, hardly anyone ends up paying attention to the stock market — we just take stock of their outfit. And when the star shows up looking as polished as Michelle Monaghan did when she visited NASDAQ on July 21, we can’t help but give her outfit our full attention.

InStyle reports that the Pixels actress kept it classy in a Calvin Klein Collection high-neck dress in blush, while finishing off her ladylike look with nude Paul Andrew pumps.

Although Monaghan’s minimalist looks seems fairly simple and accessible, its cost is less than accessible to budget-conscious shoppers. Monaghan’s Paul Andrew Zenadia pumps alone cost a lofty $675, while other dresses from Calvin Klein Collection start at $895. So to make this look affordable to even the most frugal fashionistas, THL decided to recreate this look for less than $200 — read on to see the results!

Finding a dress to rival Monaghan’s Calvin Klein Collection frock was no easy task, but the Lonely Sea Dress by The Fifth Label seems to do the trick. This dress not only offers a similar blush color to imitate Monaghan’s dress, it also has a high neckline reminiscent of the Calvin Klein Collection dress, while the flared hemline adds a little bit of femininity to an otherwise straight silhouette. Available for $80 on RevolveClothing.com, this dress is the perfect substitute for the pricey Calvin Klein Collection frock.

Nude pumps complete the look for less, but not just any nude pumps will do — so we found the Charles by Charles David Parker Leather Pumps from DSW. These pumps have slight cutouts on the sides that invoke the cutouts of the Paul Andrew pumps, but the price is nowhere close to that of Monaghan’s pumps: these will only set you back $69.95!

She Leads, You Follow: Cupcakes and Cashmere

Everyone’s favorite blogger has finally launched her own clothing line! That’s right, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere recently released her very own clothing collection this month. According to Glamour, Schuman collaborated with BB Dakota to bring her fans affordable, effortlessly chic pieces that will integrate seamlessly into our existing wardrobes. Available at both Nordstrom and Shopbop, nothing in the collection thus far is priced over $205, making it an accessible brand for shoppers of all price points.

After drooling over every single piece (and we mean every. single. piece.) in the newly released collection, we finally settled on our top three favorite items that we think every stylish girl should have in their wardrobe.

The first piece to make us stop and stare was the Marin Lace Overlay Shift Dress. The easy silhouette of the shift style makes this dress a must-have for women of all shapes and sizes, and the luxurious, intricate lace instantly dresses up the carefree shift dress style. This gorgeous little number looks like it costs much more than only $115, and if you love it as much as we do, you’ll want to get it in both black and antique ivory!

The Presidio Military Jacket easily wins the Most Valuable Player award out of the whole collection. This jacket, available in a neutral army green, will become your wardrobe’s utility player, effortlessly pairing with your favorite jeans or a even cute sundress. Oftentimes, military jackets can be boxy and rather shapeless, making them look like they belong in the men’s department. However, this jacket has built-in shape, courtesy of the internal drawstring that allows you to cinch in your waist as much as you’d like. And as if this jacket isn’t already perfect, its affordable $115 price tag makes it that much better.

We’ve already established with the Merin Lace Overlay Shift Dress that the Cupcakes and Cashmere collection knows how to instantly dress you up with only one piece. But the collection proved it yet again with the Roxbury Jumpsuit, a Nordstrom-exclusive item. This navy jumpsuit is the perfect piece for any summer day adventure, pairing it in the day with a cute gladiator sandal and a straw fedora and pairing it at night with a statement necklace, a colorful clutch and a high heel. Besides its versatility, the Roxbury jumpsuit features a drawstring at the waist, allowing you to cinch in your waist and define your shape. For a cool $120, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth out of this cute yet comfy jumpsuit.

We could have gushed for days about how much we love this collection, but you don’t need us to tell you how wonderful it is! Head over to Nordstrom and Shopbop to shop these looks and others for yourself! And be sure to tell us how much you love your new Cupcakes and Cashmere items, because we’re pretty sure you’re going to love them!
