This Fabulous Look – for Less!

Emma Watson, 2012.

Emma Watson has been on fire lately. Every time she steps out for the premieres of her new movie, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” she causes a sensation in the fashion world. Each perfectly tailored dress fits like a glove and looks beyond fabulous on her. While some of her intricate dresses may be hard to find in a smaller price range, this particular ensemble isn’t too hard to recreate on a budget.

Arden B., $48.99

The leather blazer is perfectly instep with today’s trends, and could easily translate as a staple to your fall wardrobe for years to come. You can opt for a moto jacket, an actual leather blazer, or a boxier jacket with leather trim. Anything leather is a must-have for this season, so feel free to experiment!

The play on prints is fun and youthful, on trend, and an easy way to feminize a tough piece of leather. Just make sure one pattern stands out while the other blends in; you don’t want your look to become chaotic!

You’ll need some simple heels to top off your fabulous outfit. Pick a neutral color, preferably one that goes with your jacket. Keep it simple, elegant, and feminine.

Keep your accessories to a minimum and use them just to accent your outfit – you don’t want them to take center stage. Go with a chic clutch like Emma, in a neutral or toned-down color.

And there you have it, the perfect look-for-less to start the fall season off with! Add a cute ponytail, rosy cheeks, and a bright pink lip to complete the look. And remember, don’t be afraid to be fabulous!
