Many of today’s celebrities stole the spotlight thanks to reality TV, or the well-timed release of a scandalous home video. In fact, it seems that making it to the red carpet is easier than ever.
There is one form of stardom, however, that eludes all but the most fabulous, an elite category that no amount of mere exhibitionism can attain. We speak, of course, of the realm of the fashionably famous.
Socialite and Chanel ambassador Poppy Delevigne is one such rare celebrity. Frequently featured in the glossy pages of national publications, the New York-based beauty is known for her classic yet eclectic taste. Today, we’ll help you recreate her polished polka dot look seen here for under $100, each piece.
The Jacket: The oversized polka dots on this blazer make for a striking statement. In a more neutral palette than Delevigne’s bold blues, this piece maintains the playful vibe of the original look with a bit of added versatility.
Pricetag: $27.80, Forever 21
The Pant: Featuring a feminine fit, these trousers will be flattering on all shapes. Their petite polka dot print also pairs perfectly with our choice of jacket. However, we do recommend that you ditch the self- belt in favor of a skinny version instead.
Pricetag: $22.80, Forever 21
The Top: We upgraded the top for this look, besting Delevigne’s white button down with a sweet, Swiss dot chiffon number. Its contrasting elements add depth and texture, which reflects the eclectic feel of her ensemble.
Pricetag: $35.90, Zara
The Shoe: Pairing your darker items with bright, patent heels will lend them year-round appeal. Right now, we suggest you think pink. The hot hue of these stilettos creates balance in our tribute look, while adding a needed pop of color.
Pricetag: $69.58, ASOS
The Accessories: Lastly, less is more when styling your own version of the modern pantsuit. A simple bag, bangle, and chic shades are all you’ll need. Do it like Delevigne and keep the look of-the-moment by avoiding overwhelming accessories.
