Look for Less: Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff has recently become a fashion role model for me.  She is right up there with Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, and Rachel Bilson.  I love that she has a casually cute style during the day, but bumps it up with an edgy, feminine style for a date night and events.  And because my body type is similar to hers, I can get an idea of what shapes and styles would work for me.

Her look below is my ideal date night ensemble.  Hilary’s version is well over $1,000 but it can easily be replicated for a more reasonable price.  See for yourself!

Cami with Mesh Panel $29.70 – Asos.com

Hilary’s keyhole tank is sexy, without being over the top.  The Asos version gives that sex appeal with the mesh panel and delicate material and the thin straps are perfect for a summer night.

Mod Stripe Skinny Jeans $27.80 – Forever21.com

YOWZA!  These pants are loud, I admit.  But they’re too fun to pass up.  Less than $30 for a pair of statement pants is very reasonable!  Whether they’re flower printed, geometric shapes, or stripes, every girl should own a staple pair of YOWZA pants.

Since I couldn’t decide on just 1 pair for this outfit, I went with a variety of va-va voom pointed-toe options:

1. Copertina Suede Pump $89.98 (Chineselaundry.com) The Copertina Suede Pumps provide a pop of color, just like Hilary’s. 

2. Vice Pump $68.00 (NastyGal.com) The Vice Pumps are my favorite of the 4;  the white cap toe is the selling point for this pair!

3. Paris Jaze Printed Pump $59.95 (DSW.com) The printed pair is perfect for those nights you are feeling extra fantastic; nothing says “I’m here to be noticed” like mixing prints.

4. Ella Pump $68.00 (NastyGal.com) The Ella Pump is a beautiful mint color that screams “60’s Mod”, when paired with black and white.
