If you have internet and an interest in fashion, you're probably used to seeing your favorite celebs in some of the most jaw-droppingly pretty — and jaw-droppingly expensive — outfits around. But fret not. There are genuinely affordable celebrity styles
in this world. You often just have to get creative about where you look and content yourself with achieving a similar, albeit non-identical, aesthetic.
I once had a co-worker who was always impeccably dressed (I mean always). She had the perfect cuts, styles, and accessories and it always looked like her outfits had come right out of a magazine. And her secret? They did. She once told me that she really didn't have a good visual eye for fashion and styling, and instead she just modeled her outfits after ones she saw in magazines.
If she bought a new blouse, she'd literally troll the web to see which celebs had been photographed in something similar and took note of exactly how they wore it and what they paired it with. She was taking advantage of their super fancy and expensive stylists — only she was getting the advice for free.
Basically, it's not at all crazy to model your style after your favorite celebs. And there are a ton of affordable stores that can help you create virtually identical outfits to the stars you most admire. So sit back and take a look at nine celebrity styles you can absolutely imitate at actual affordable prices.

If you love Rachel McAdam's floral print dress, you're in luck — floral prints are generally pretty easy to find at store's that won't break the bank. And a super quality pair of black heels can be found at discount stores like DSW or Nordstom Rack.
