Fashion on a Budget | Illinois Senior Photographer | Shining Moments Photography

More October fun with matching up celeb styles with your fashion budget.  Are you senior portrait ready? Emma chose three of her favorite celebrities + their cute style to share and get you ready for your senior portraits with SMP!

Lots of celebrities dress to impress. Regular people on a relatively normal salary like to dress like them, but not all of them can afford that brand-new Tiffany & Co. $189,000 diamond ring. This blog post is all about everyone’s favorite female celebs, and you can afford to dress like them (without burning a hole in your designer pocket).


#1: Taylor Swift

Simple, understated, and summery, Taylor’s style is easily replicated, and here’s what you can use. If you hit up your local clothing store, like Gap, Maurice’s, Forever 21, or H&M, you can wear an outfit similar.

  •  First, head to the dress section:: A white lacy sundress will work, which are priced anywhere from $20-$50
  • Next, get a cream sweater, or terry sweatshirts that are trendy, for $20-$30
  • DSW, SIS.Shop-in-Style, or FLIRT carry cute brown high-heeled sandals ranging from $40-$75
  • Don’t forget to grab some red lipstick from your local pharmacy, maybe add some black eye-liner, and you’re good to go!

#2: Daisy Ridley

You don’t need the Force to be able to get this ensemble – Daisy Ridley likes cheaper clothes than most. To start with,

  • Find a black cable-knit sweater  + black jeans and a black braided belt.
  • Finish the look, get the Star Wars slip-ons, which really show the Force is with you. (???? I love good Star Wars puns)

#3: Christy Altomare

She’s the princess Anastasia!! (on Broadway, at least). Christy Altomare has an easily-replicable style, and that starts here.

Soon, you’ll be walking the walk just like Broadway’s up-and-coming star!
