Ask a Stylist: How to Rock Casual Separates Like Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, Ask a Stylist Pacific Coast News

Taylor Swift is definitely known for her girly-girl style. Think lots of floral dresses and skirts. But this week she took a departure from her usual feminine frocks and opted for a more understated elegance while having lunch in New York City. 

The 24-year-old paired a $295 Theory top with Black Orchid pinstripe denim shorts for $130. She pulled it together with nude Prada platform pumps for $720, and a retro-style Dolce and Gabbana bag for about $1,700.  As you can see, this "understated" outfit really costs major moolah!

Now, let's have fun and recreate this on the cheap! First, a basic 3/4 sleeve top from Old Navy for $14.50 will do the trick, and pair it with these almost identical denim pinstripe shorts from Abercrombie for only $29. 

Next up, accessories. These Jessica Simpson nude platform shoes are a dead ringer for those amazing Pradas Tay was rocking, but for $70 they are a fraction of the price! And here is a quick stylist tip: Nude shoes are always a good option with shorts, dresses or skirts. And even better, a nude shoe will immediately elongate your legs. It's a win-win!

And of course we can't forget the bag. This bag from Zara has the same gold clasp closure and retro vibe as Taylor's Dolce and Gabbana, but for $80 it is a fraction of the price. And there you have it!
