"Where did Taylor Swift get the dress she wore on the Video Music Awards?"
"Where can I get those jeans that Lauren Conrad was wearing in People?"
As collegiettes we can' all afford designer clothes, so I have the perfect solution. Here are five ways to grab celebrity outfits for under $100 each:
Kim Kardashian rocks mint green jeans paired with neutral accessories. This outfit is extremely easy to replicate. The jeans are the most important part of the outfit. Forever 21 and other stores like Miss Selfridge have some great, inexpensive brightly colored jeans. Then try a cream color cardigan with a kind of detail (we like lace) to put your own personal touch to the outfit. The neutral tone makes the pant stand out more. For accessories do what Kim did and carry a natural-colored bag with shoes to match.

Cardigan, Charlotte Russe, $18
Sandals, Debenhams, $45
Bag, Zara, $50
Mixing and matching patterns can be extremely difficult. However, reality television star and fashion designer Whitney Port has a talent for it. Port uses the color black in this polka dot shirt, in the shorts, booties, and even in the purse. She brilliantly ties the outfit together with a gorgeous neutral-colored blazer. When deciding what patterns to wear, try to concentrate on one color like Port did.

Shorts, House of Fraser, $48
We all know Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl as Blair who dresses up in heels, a blazer, and of course the classic headband. But Leighton Meester isn’t like her character in real life; she has a more effortless style of dressing. Especially this chic outfit from her Lady Foot Locker ad that’s topped off with high top Reeboks. If you want to dress up this coral skirt for a nighttime look, wear a pair of patent leather nude pumps.

Converse, Free People, $50
Rachel Bilson rocked this outfit for a Chelsea Lately interview. It’s a classic and crisp look that is appropriate for almost any occasion including a fancy brunch or even a job interview. The neutral dress can go with any colored blazer, but the coral colored blazer definitely makes the outfit especially pop.
