Celebrities, they're just like us! Except for, you know, the outrageously high bank balance and a myriad of fancy cars sitting idle in the garage. Oh, and closets packed with clothes curated by the best designers and stylists in the country, each worth a king's ransom. But as out of reach as these outfits can seem, they're what we derive our fashion inspiration from. Whether it's a hot new jumpsuit or the latest summer dress, the popularity of the IT fashion piece of the season can usually be traced back to a beloved celebrity donning it, and probably flooding all Instagram feeds. 


So when your style matches that of your fav celeb, but your budget is nowhere close to theirs, how do you dress like a famous personality without going bankrupt? Well, that's exactly what we're here for. And with that, here's presenting a guide to the 25 celebrity outfits you can recreate on a budget!


Budget-friendly celebrity outfits for women:


1. Sara's Pastel Cropped Blazer & Trousers 

As vibrant as the girl herself, we can't get enough of this pastel pop of colour Sara brought to her, and now your wardrobe, in the avatar of a bubblegum pink suit by Appapop! Funky and cool in equal measure, all you need to wear under this cropped blazer and trousers pair, is a solid white fitted tee to bring out the gorgeous hues. Accessorise with some colourful cat-eye frames, like the mint sunglasses we see Sara flaunting here.

2. Alaya's Buttercup Yellow Midi & Lace-Up Stilletos

Sunshine, so fine! Another bright, summer-ready outfit, we absolutely adore Alaya's buttercup yellow midi dress and lace-up stilettos combination. The dress Alaya is wearing here is originally from Lavish Alice, but our recommendation from recreating is a close second, and also much more budget-friendly. A face of barely-there, nude makeup and simple hoop earrings, will perfectly complement the exuberance of this outfit.

3. Deepika's One-Shoulder Shirt & Mom Jeans

In a très chic retro-glam look, we see Deepika rocking an asymmetrical one-shoulder white shirt tucked into a pair of high-waisted straight-leg denims. Our attempt at recreating this celebrity outfit features an unconventional one-shoulder white top and similar pair of jeans, but at a price a lot easier on the wallet. To complete the look the way our favourite diva did, put on some stone-studded gold hoops, and pull your hair back in a high, voluminous ponytail.

4. Ananya's Puff-Sleeve Sweater & Peplum-Hem Mini Skirt 

We love this adorable outfit by Ananya for its simplicity and casual-chic vibe. A puff-sleeve white sweater goes into a peplum hemmed baby pink skirt in this look, and Ananya seals the deal with a high ponytail and loose tendrils framing the face. It's the perfect lunch-date outfit, and our version is just as cute and half as expensive!

5. Parineeti's Double Breasted Blazer, Graphic Tee & Straight-Leg Denims

If you've been looking to dress-up in the office, this is the outfit you need to get your hands on ASAP. Here we see Parineeti dazzling in a plaid double-breasted blazer, paired with a basic monochrome graphic tee and high-rise straight-leg denims. Our take comes as close to the original look as possible, without burning a hole in your pocket. The best part about investing in these pieces is the assortment of styling options they come with, perfect for getting mixed and matched with other clothes from your closet. In this ensemble, you can go for a nude face of make-up for an understated day look, or play up the drama with smoky eyes.

6. Sanjana's Blazer & Shorts Co-Ords

Fun, young-spirited and tasteful, these are the three adjectives we'd use to describe both the young starlet and the outfit she's wearing here. We love Sanjana's playful blazer and shorts co-ordinate set, worn on top of a simple cream silk camisole. We tried to recreate this celebrity outfit on a budget with this striped and floral print co-ord set. Pull your hair back for a sleeker look, or let it cascade in messy waves like Sanjana's perky take.

7. Shraddha's Pleated Midi, Cami Top & Cropped Blazer 

We would shout out from every rooftop if we could, that your summer wardrobe this year is incomplete without a pleated midi skirt. If you don't believe us, just trust Shraddha and her graceful, elegant outfit here. She puts together a white bandeau top and white cropped blazer combination, with a sunshine yellow sheer-hemmed pleated midi skirt. Our budget-friendly take has all three elements and is remarkably close to the original look. Straight, pulled-back hair will let this outfit take the centre stage it rightfully deserves.

8. Kriti's Printed Cold-Shoulder Mini With Ruffles 

In this summery avatar, we see Kriti clad in a ruffled printed mini dress featuring a cold-shoulder neckline, by designer Rudraksh Dwivedi. This is a simple yet utterly-charming hot-day outfit, that you can top off with a simple messy bun and a pair of basic studs. The best part about this look is that you can dress it down the way we recommended, or play it up like Kriti with smoky eyes and stacked bracelets.

9. Vaani's Neon On Neon Bodycon Dress & Jacket 

In this head-turner outfit combination, Vaani shows us exactly how neon-on-neon is done tastefully. Our favourite part of this look is its simplicity, and yet how it manages to grab several eyeballs. Our budget-friendly neon suggestions are in line with Vaani's understated glam ensemble, and are ideal for pairing together with some white sneakers. However, you can tone down the brightness of the outfit by wearing the dress as it as, or by pairing it with a neutral-coloured shrug.

10. Alia's Block Print Anarkali 

Our Bollywood divas are just as fashionably dressed when it comes to ethnic outfits, and Alia proves our statement right. We see her here in a beautiful light-blue block-printed Anarkali suit and a simple no-makeup-makeup look. We managed to find a budget-friendly ethnic set that closely matches Alia's gorgeous outfit, and as is the case with F Indian looks, you can top it off however you please. We'd recommend a pair of silver oxidised jhumkis, and a dainty bindi to seal the look.

11. Yami's High Front Slit Kurti & Palazzo

This uncomplicated ethnic outfit by Yami Gautam would create the perfect daytime look for a plethora of occasions, ranging from donning it at work to wearing it for a lunch-date with the girls. Keep it simple as Yami did here with beachy waves, and a statement cocktail ring. You can also pair our reasonably-priced take on this ethnic celebrity outfit with a pair of gold danglers, or chunky metallic hoops.

12. Deepika's Embroidered White Saree 

When it comes to dreamy, stunning sarees, very few celebs can win against Deepika. The undefeated queen of ethnic looks turns all heads yet again, with this bewitching white saree featuring intricate traditional Chikankari embroidery work, draped on a hand-embroidered light beige and white deep-neck blouse by Rahul Mishra. Our recommendation for recreating this look might be a far departure from the price of the original outfit, but the ethnic-style quotient is just as intact!

Budget-friendly celebrity outfits for men:


1. Ranveer's Grey Check Suit With Neon Long-Jacket

This is Ranveer, rephrasing the word power in power suits with an almost impossible fashion risk only a guy like him can pull off. Yes, I am referring to the neon jacket he's ready to take off in. Although we are already accustomed to Ranveer Singh's crazy and eclectic sense of style, but duplicating it on a budget seems a little far-fetched. Well, let me change your opinion to the latter statement by extending our closest find to the outfit even your girlfriend is crushing over. 


Now, we couldn't get our hands on a neon jacket, but this olive green one would work just as fine.

2. Shahid's Blue Waist-Coat Pant Set & White Sneakers

Shahid is getting cuter by the day, and we can't figure out how. This guy knows how to look stunning and still be comfortable in his shoes, which is quite evident because he is a shoe hoarder (stalker alert). Finding an exact replica of Shahid's outfit was a task, but we dug up a very similar look that would only require you to smile, that's it... and you'll be good to go.

3. Ayushmann's Denim Jacket, Loose Pants & Red Polka Socks

We never realised how bizarre and singular Ayushmann's wardrobe is until we made an attempt to recreate one of his outfits on a budget. Not only is he a versatile actor, but a stylist too. If you make an attempt to check his profile, you'd be awestruck with how much variety he has, even when they’re all designer pieces. It was not a cakewalk to find clothes just like his, but we came pretty close. 


A washed-off denim jacket from Zara styled with affordable yet complimenting joggers or balloon pants, whatever suits your style the best and of course a black printed t-shirt. You're welcome!

4. Hritik's Wine Coloured Corduroy Jacket, Neon Turtle Neck & Cargo Pants

"Dhoom...dhoom just take our life." That's the only song which repeats in our minds as soon as we see the hottest man in our Bollywood industry. The height and body Hrithik Roshan have, any piece of clothing would create nothing less than history. We particularly picked this outfit for the colour choices (wine with neon, we mean how...) along with the fact that despite everything how sturdy it looks. And I am pretty certain that this outfit will get you matches, phone numbers and maybe a date.

5. Diljit's Pink T-Shirt, Beige Pants With Black Sneakers & Brown Watch

Diljit Dosanjh is known for his OTT branded fashion, and this retro look is the whole reason why he can also be a trusted fashion icon in the industry. This outfit can be recreated easily from everything you already have in your wardrobe, but just in case you're missing a piece of this artistic puzzle, here it is. Enjoy!

6. Ranveer's Striped Balloon Pants With Polka Shirt & Retro Shades

While we question the bizarre yet confounding fashion choices of Ranveer Singh, there's always a little part of us that secretly wishes to copy it with similar grace. So, this is us trying to recreate a simpler version of this vibrant outfit as affordably as we could. If your style statement does not allow such quirky pants, we'd say try the simpler ones.

7. Sid's Block Print Kurta Set With Brown Kolhapuris

Only if Siddharth Malhotra was accepting rishtas! Regardless, he looks like a bright and shinning penny just ready to take over a friend's Mehendi function with his million-dollar smile and block print kurta. Well, now it's your turn to steal hearts with a similar outfit. Thank us later!

8. Karan Grover's Navy Blue Suspenders, Flat Cap, Polka Shirt & Checkered Pants

Karan's outfit from RS by Rocky Star is a radical perspective to men's wear, and these people couldn't have chosen a better talent than him to flaunt this outfit. With solid pecks and a stud body, this actor can pull off any look, from formal to workout, with an additional spark. Between you and us, we undertook this look, and we are quite satisfied with how it turned out.

9. Ishaan's Slim-Fit Corduroy Jacket, Mustard Turtle Neck & Ultra Trendy Shades

The new talent in B-town and a terrific actor with an athletic body would have no problem managing an outfit that reflects pure class. With a touch of retro and complimenting colours, no part of this ensemble is anything less than chic and retro. Have a look at our understudy of the original outfit, styled by Eshaa Amiin.

10. Kartik's Cute Pullover, Checkered Jacket, Blue Chinos & Dark Brown Oxfords

The boy-next-door Kartik is a style icon for many. And the outfit he is rocking in is the clear reflection of his fun and goofy nature. A not-so-serious pullover is set to stay calm with a check blazer, while the blue chinos are doing a perfect job at turning this outfit into a casual office party material. This is the closest rendition of Kartik's devil-might-not-care-but-I-do ensemble we could work out.

11. Arjun Kapoor's Blue Army Print Jacket & Sweatshirt

Here's Arjun Kapoor experimenting with his style by donning into a transparent army print jacket, blue sweatshirt and basic blue jeans and we must admit he looks smouldering. A look so twisted that it can only be made into what it is with a clean-cut guy like him. That being said, you guys can make it work too, only if you could compromise with the colour we unearth for you.

12. Siddhant's Black Velvet Suit With Neck Piece

Good-looking, hot and spunky, there aren't better words to describe our newly studded star and his sense of style. His no-nonsense suit which is not only velvet but straight black with nothing but a singular piece of embellishment to accessorise is something too plain for a celebrity. But Siddhant is carrying it with such charm that we couldn't stop myself from including this look in the list. Now it's pretty easy to duplicate, so just follow our suggestions, and you'll be golden.

13. Varun's Blue Leather Jacket, Playful Shirt & Black Pants

The spark in his acting and the outfits he pulls-off is mesmerising. And so is the look he is rocking right now. A blue leather jacket with a playful shirt inside is almost similar to experimenting with print-on-print, which we are sure he can easily get away with. While we tried to recreate Varun's outfit on a budget by picking a printed shirt although different and a blue jacket which resembles the designer one he is wearing, you are free to go with whichever colour suits you.
