The Eat Pray Love movie comes out tomorrow, and talk is already swirling about Julia Roberts' comfy, stylish and no-nonsense wardrobe in the film, as her character Elizabeth Gilbert travels from New York to Italy, India, and finally onto Bali.
The clothes Julia Roberts wears in the film, although slightly fancier than I might don on travel adventure like Elizabeth Gilbert's, do stay pretty practical throughout. The garments are loose-fitting, natural-fiber pieces which Julia makes look great -- and they're all definitely the kind of clothes you can see rolled up in suitcase, to be shaken out for a delicious itinerary of self discovery and romantic international rendezvous.
Take a look and check out our finds -- all under $75 -- that will help you recreate a few of Julia's looks from the movie.
Julia Roberts in Italy
Get the look (above): Julia's simple chambray dress is perfect for a walk around Rome's cobblestone streets. We've chosen a 100% cotton denim dress with a similar look and paired it with a floppy straw fedora and a brown gladiator sandal. I can almost taste the cappuccino and Italian pastries a few paces away.

Fedora Straw Hat (reg. $52; sale price $24.99) at Athleta
Get the look: This is probably my favorite fashion look of the film -- a pretty brush-stroked dress (hello, waistline!) with a casual and versatile canvas jacket over top makes this look easy and breezy. We've picked out a similar cargo jacket and cotton/nylon sundress in a similar color palette.

Julia Roberts in India
Get the look: Julia is sporting a sweet textured blouse in India, which she pairs with a magenta tank and an emerald green cardigan. Gorgeously colorful. Toss it all on with jeans or a flowy skirt. The pintucked linen A-line shirt below in a soft orange zinnia has the same carefree appeal when paired with a long, vintage-style cardigan and a bright magenta tank top.

Julia Roberts in Bali
Get the look: Loving the textures of this look: the embroidered linen with the mustard tie dye cardigan and the striped multicolor woven bag. Who knows where they got that wonderful cardy, but we've pulled together a look that matches in texture and autumnal golden and natural hues.

Here's the best part! The color palettes of all these picks work really well together and many of the pieces can be mixed and matched to make a number of other looks. Not too shabby, huh?
