One of my favorite things about fashion is the versatility. Versatility in the sense that everyone has there own sense of style and how one piece can be styled one way and then look completely opposite another. You can recreate any look with the right tools very easily. As we all learned it “Devil Wears Prada”, main stream haute couture decides everyday wear of many of the women in America.
The ability to take current trends and statements and incorporating them into your everyday life is priceless. Although it may take some effort, you can capture the essence of any celebrity look for a lot less. I originally wrote this article for Her Campus Oregon, to give options to women in college to have these ‘looks’ for less. Here are 3 looks from celebrity Jennifer Lawrence for 100$ or Les
