I just love this photo of Alexis Bledel at the Elle Fashion NEXT show in New York last week.
She takes four very simple pieces and creates a classy, on-trend fall look.
And you don't have to be a pixie-like waif to copy it!
Think about it -- all you need to duplicate this look is a pretty white blouse, a tailored gray skirt, a hot leopard clutch, and a pair of red heels.
I'm betting you already have at least half of this look in your closet!
(And by the way, it would also work great with a pair of tailored gray pants in lieu of the skirt.)
If you don't have what you need, don't fret -- I'm here to help you out!
Read on to see some affordable (not to mention real-life sized) alternatives!
If you're going for an exact copy of Alexis's outfit, the closest "reasonably priced" (and I use that term loosely, because I certainly can't afford this blouse) top I could find is this gorgeous Trina Turk Alia Ruched Waist Top (Nordstrom, $186). It's scrumptious, yes?
However, I think one of this season's crisp, ruffled blouses would be just as pretty with this outfit. I'm seeing lots at the stores this season and they're all around the same price range as this lovely Teagan Ruffle-Neck Blouse (Ralph Lauren, $79.50).
As for a gray skirt, I'm loving the price on this city knit luxe pencil skirt (New York & Company, $24.95) so much, I just might add it to my own closet! I love the fact that it's knit -- I'm sure it's quite flattering!
Girl, you've got to have a killer pair of red heels. I'm loving these Guess Amazed Platform Pumps (Lord & Taylor, $89.99).
I'm a little obsessed now with finding a leopard clutch. This Perfect Leopard Clutch (Ann Taylor, $138) isn't a bad price, but keep an eye out -- I bet you could do even better, price-wise.
So, ladies. What do you think of Alexis Bledel's look?
