20 Celebrity Outfits You Can Recreate On A Budget

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - July 29, 2020 12 min read

Celebrities, they're just like us! Except for you know, the outrageously high bank balance, a myriad of fancy cars sitting idle in the garage, and sprawling houses with manicured lawns. 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 also what we derive our fashion inspiration from. I mean, think about it. 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 Instagramming it. 

 

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. Let us help you get your dearest icon's best outfits into your wardrobe, without shelling out your entire life savings. And with that, here's presenting a guide to 20 celebrity outfits you can recreate on a budget! 

 

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 a lot more budget-friendly. A face of barely-there, nude makeup and simple hoop earrings, will perfectly complement the exuberance of this outfit choice.

3. Alaya's Plaid Co-Ords 

 

 

Co-ords have been all the rage in the world of fashion lately, and Alaya shows us exactly how it's done. Her plaid top and bottom set with ruffles is chic, elegant and utterly romantic. While a reasonably priced checked coordinate set was a tad challenging to come across, we managed to put together two plaid pieces that look like they belong together. Accessorise with statement gold hoops, and a face of rosy, delicate makeup.

4. Deepika's Blood Orange Cold-Shoulder Midi & Pumps 

 

 

Don't you just love it when your look for the next party, is a celebrity outfit on a budget? Here we see Deepika Padukone wearing a flaming red cold-shouldered midi number by Rosie Assoulin, topped off with a pair of red Christian Louboutins. Well, we found a thrifted version of this outfit idea, complete with a budget-friendly pair of red heels. Amp up the vogue factor of this recreated celebrity outfit by pulling your hair back in a messy ponytail, and putting on some red lipstick.

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

 

 

In a tres 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 that's 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.

6. 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!

7. Ananya's Bardot Puff-Sleeves Bodycon Dress

 

 

Ananya does it yet again, that too as effortlessly as can be. We love this little burgundy number, featuring a Bardot neckline and sheer puff sleeves. Ananya's dress might be for home-quarantine as indicated by her Insta caption, but our recommendation makes for the perfect alluring party outfit. A dainty thin gold necklace, and beachy waves in your hair, will make the whole look come together beautifully.

8. Alia's Colourful Striped Maxi Dress

 

 

Alia does millennial elegance like nobody else can, and this outfit is all the evidence you need. Here she's seen wearing a rainbow-hue, striped sleeveless maxi dress from Missoni, which BTW costs a whooping 1.1 Lakh! Thank God we're here, for we managed to recreate this look in an inexpensive and sensible budget. This plunge neck striped maxi dress from Forever 21 is both vibrant and graceful, and a pair of statement earrings will look absolutely gorgeous with it.

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

 

 

If you've been looking to play 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 has got to be the assortment of styling options they come with, perfect for being 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.

10. 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.

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

 

We would shout it from every rooftop if we could, your warmer-days 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 the 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.

12. Shraddha's Blazer Dress & BeltBag 

 

If we were to list the trends we just can't get enough of, blazer dresses would undoubtedly get the top rank. As a Cosmo cover girl, Shraddha is seen here in an oversized Vero Moda blazer worn as a dress, and a Salvatore Ferragamo belt bag. Our attempt to recreate this celebrity outfit on a budget, features a navy double-breasted blazer dress from Alaya by Stage 3, and a quilted waist bag from Carlton. Opt for a dewy makeup look with blush pink lips, and leave your locks open in light messy waves.

13. 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 stud earrings. The best part about this look is that you can both dress it down the way we recommended, or play it up like Kriti did here with smoky eyes and stacked bracelets.

14. Katrina's Polka Dot Front Knot Shirt & Overlap Faux Leather Mini 

 

Another retro-stylish ensemble with a 70s glam vibe, we love Katrina's simple polka-dot knotted shirt and overlap leather mini skirt pairing. She adds the perfect finishing touch to this old-school-cool look with a delicate gold necklace, and a pair of classic big hoops. You can channel Katrina's quintessential girl-next-door outfit on a budget with our chic separates. A pair of strappy heels will seal the look beautifully.

15. 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 thing about this look is how simple it is, 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 leaving the dress be, or by pairing it with a neutral-coloured shrug.

16. Jacqueline's Choker Neckline Velvet Mini 

 

Jacqueline looks like an absolute romantic dream in this velvet skater mini-dress featuring a choker neckline. She leaves her hair side-swept and loose, and puts on a pair of basic pumps to put the look together. Our affordable take on this gorgeous outfit features flamboyant flared-sleeves, and a wrap-around belt. Let the dress be the highlight of your look by choosing a barely-there face of makeup, and accessorising with simple thin hoop earrings.

17. 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 oxidized jhumkis, and a dainty Bindi to seal the look.

18. 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.

19. 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!

20. Gauahar's Pant Saree 

 

If fusion Desi looks are more up your alley, Gauahar comes bearing the perfect style inspiration for you. Clad in a gorgeous red pant saree by Swati Vijaivargie, she pairs this alluring look with beautiful gold jhumkis by Shri Paramani Jewels. We found a beautiful reasonably priced magenta and navy blue pant saree ensemble, that closely emulate Guahar's indo-western charm.
