Not everyone has an A-list budget to shop endlessly, or a personal stylist whos able to bag expensive freebies. However, when more and more celebrities are choosing high street brands, who really needs designer wear? When fashion icons are leaving pricey labels behind and opting for more affordable pieces even at glitzy award ceremonies it may well be time to fully embrace budget fashion.
Among the celebrities who normally favour more affordable brands, Fearne Cotton shines with her mix of vintage pieces and sell-out high street gems. Kate Middleton has also been known to sport high street styles, whilst Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams recently chose a high street dress to wear to the BAFTAs.
Another starlet who regularly struts her stuff in affordable fashion is Tulisa Contostavlos. After wowing X Factor audiences with her choice of wardrobe, the N-Dubz singer was recently spotted in LA wearing several items from the Lipsy London online range.
Stepping out in Aztec-inspired prints, pretty jumpers, floral playsuits and cute cocktail dresses, she finished off her looks with black peep-toe wedge boots, patent stilettos, casual trainers and wide sunglasses for a dose of Hollywood glamour.
To steal Tulisas style, take a look at the range of going out dresses available at Very. Perfect for evening dinners and glitzy parties, the collection includes frocks in elegant satin, flattering pale pink shades and with bang-on-trend shoulder details. You'll also find dresses with colourful floral prints and vibrant block colours that are ideal for a summer holiday or garden party. These can easily be paired with understated, classic black heels, nude pumps, or clashed with funky footwear in animal prints for a quirky look.
With celebs wearing on-trend high street pieces, its easier than ever to get the A-list look the secret is simply running to the store (or your laptop!) before the items sell out.
