Celeb Wardrobe Essentials!

By: Alexa Salari, Savvy Fashionista

Celebrities wear some amazing fashions, but like any of us, we all have those items we can’t live without. Now while we can’t steal their closets, there are some celeb essential pieces we can take inspiration from.

For example, the shift dress. Eva Mendes, Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham are just some of the few celebs who love this piece and for good reason. It’s loose fitting and it doesn’t tug around the waistline. I found this garment at Nordstrom (under $60)! The shift dress works well with a lot of different body types. It skims the outline of the body, but it’s still really flattering. Plus, there’s not a lot of accessorizing involved. Just throw on a pair of stylish heels or pumps and the look is ready to wear.

So even though we see celebrities on the red carpet wearing these intricate pieces, they’re also about functionality. Kendall Jenner, Giuliana Rancic and style icon Olivia Palermo can attest to this with the help of the asymmetrical cut skort. Sometimes there’s nothing worse for a celeb than to be snapped by the paparazzi in an unflattering photo. So with the skort, this is from Nordstrom as well, you have the shorts underneath but from the outside you have this unique cut in the front. A simple blouse and heels finishes off the outfit.

Many celebrities like Lily Collins, supermodel Kate Moss and Nicole Richie can be seen rocking the kimono-inspired jacket. I found this piece from Marshalls, and I love the sheer fabric with the floral print. It’s really light and airy. I’ve paired it with a black skinny jean and open toe heels. But what’s great about the jacket is that it can be worn with different garments like shorts, capris or a skirt.

So a lot of celebs like Kourtney Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens can be seen wearing wide leg pants. We’ve seen them in the jean material, but there’s something about sheer that gives the pants an elegant feel. Your legs are covered, but you get a tasteful hint of skin with the sheer material. I’ve added a royal blue top to bring out the design within these pants from Marshalls. They’re just really functional. They have the elastic band with the built-in shorts and you can add a pair of wedges or sandals.

The shirtwaist dress is a loved item by celebs like Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift and Keira Knightley. It’s one piece! Now I found this particular dress at Macy’s and all the details and colors make the dress. You have the peach collar against this royal blue blouse that is connected to this navy pleated skirt. It’s fun, flirty and functional. Like the last look, you can add wedges or flats depending on the occasion.

The halter dress is a prized gem on the red carpet. Kristen Wiig, Victoria Justice and Emma Stone look beautiful in this type of dress, along with a countless number of other celebs. Now we’re not necessarily on the red carpet everyday, so I found this more casual but still really classy halter at Marshalls. A lot of celebs take to this dress because it’s figure flattering. You have this elegant neckline, with a loosely fitted blouse that blends into the bottom of the dress and perfectly skims the outline of the body. Depending on the occasion, you can opt for pumps or sandals.

With all of these looks, they can be styled for a fancier occasion or a more casual one. Essentially, these pieces are both chic and practical to have in your wardrobe!
