Sunglasses

This celebrity look of Miranda Kerr isn’t exactly new or anything, but I have always loved this classy outfit of hers, so when I saw the elegant pencil dress from Oasis a few days ago, I knew it’d be the perfect budget dress alternative for Miranda’s body-con Victoria Beckham frock. Do you like my take on this celebrity look 4 less?

I really like Karen Walker‘s eyewear line. Sure, a few of the styles might look a little crazycj, but the “Super Duper Strength” sunnies below are absolutely fabulous, don’t you agree? I especially like them in tortoise, but there’s no way I could justify spending a whopping $280 on a pair of sunglasses. Luckily for me (and possibly you as well) I found a couple of great and wallet-friendly alternatives that look just as stylish as the designer original!

I love these posh cat-eye frames by Dior. They are classic yet so on-trend this season. Wear them with your work wardrobe as well as your jeans on the weekend and look instantly polished and fabulous. I’m a huge fan of how blogger/stylist Blair (from Atlantic-Pacific) wears her shades. By adding just this one accessory, suddenly her whole outfit looks spontaneous and way more fun! But if you aren’t one to spend a lot on sunglasses, either for budget reasons or just because you keep misplacing them, then read on for where to find a similar pair for way less!

Triple Optic High Pointed Vintage Cat Eye Sunglasses

Yes, can you believe these are only $6.15? Crazy to think, and they are such a great look-alike! Sure, they may not have the same proportions as the designer original, but are simply fantastic if you just aim for the same look! These Triple Optic sunnies have dark lenses and most likely pretty good UV protection, too. And the best thing is that you can get the measurements online to check the width/size before you buy. So get yourself a pair of these sassy retro frames, pile your hair up high and get ready to rock that little bit that’s left of summer in awesome style!

You might know of my weakness for anything striped, but striped sunglasses? That was new even to me, the stripe freak. I can’t rememeber having seen a pair like these round striped sunnies by House of Holland before. And I must say: I like them! Sure, they’re definitely not for the faint of heart and require a lot of confidence to be worn out in public. But if you’re bold and daring enough, I totally think you should rock them. That is, if you have $250 ready and available to spend on them, of course.

Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?
