When we think of celebrity fashion, we automatically assume that it comes with a steep price tag. After years of seeing the Kardashians squeezed into thousand-dollar Balmain dresses, “It” girls carrying Hermès ‘Birkin’ bags that cost more than most people’s annual rent, and models trotting down the red carpet in sky-high Christian Louboutins, it’s easy to see why we’d make that assumption.
Being a celebrity may come with the privilege of being given high-priced accessories or getting to borrow some amazing clothing thanks to well-connected stylists, but what’s surprising is that so many of them prefer to balance their glamorous statement items with affordable basics and accessories. High-street brands like Zara, H&M, and Topshop are regularly seen on A-listers both on the red carpet (shocking, we know) and off duty. Just to prove this point, you’ll find five stylish pieces loved by celebrities that will cost you less than $100 in the gallery, below.
