Rachel Bilson Look

I absolutely love Rachel Bilson's style, I think she manages to always keep it quite simple and classic whilst keeping very on trend. Although I would love to have her wardrobe sadly I cannot afford the designer prices so I thought I would try to recreate a couple of her looks with High Street options.

Key pieces in her outfit here are; a simple black blazer (something useful that can be worn time and time again), floral print maxi dress, statement gold necklace and cream/white clutch bag. These are all items that can be mixed and matched and I feel could get lots of wear out of them.
 H&M- £14.99 (now on sale for £7.49) 

New Look- £24.99

ASOS Statement Folded Metal Bib Necklace
ASOS Curved Horn Collar
Miss Selfridge Futuristic Collar £16.50

Although I could not find a necklace with exactly the same detailing I think any gold statement necklace would be perfect and there are plenty available, the 3 above i particularly like.

H&M- £14.99
Asos-Minkpink Girlfriend Floral Button Front Maxi Dress
Rachel's maxi dress works well with her outfit because it is light and very flowing and although she has paired it with a black blazer the floral print keeps it summery.



River Island- cream snake skin print clutch bag.
I also found that clutch bags similar to these were very readily available but I think these two would work well in particular because of the gold detailing that would match perfectly with the necklace.

The second outfit I chose of Rachel Bilson's to recreate was one that could en corporate the versatility of the black blazer used in the last outfit. As with her last look it is something that can be worn during a summery day with flats or sandals and then dressed up in the evening simply by adding some heels, nice bag and a simple jacket to keep you nice and toasty!


Im sure Rachel wears real leather shorts but with a trend like this who knows how long it will last, for me a much better option is the PU leather look shorts which a more affordable and available in many high street shops.
ASOS SHIMMY Pointed Court Shoe





These black heels and clutch bag are something that would be very versatile in any wardrobe. They will not go out of fashion in a hurry and are definitely worth investing in to make an outfit more evening appropriate, they also work perfectly with the leather look shorts.

I really like the simplicity of both of these outfits and think they are very wearable not just for celebrities and the likes of Rachel Bilson! Keep a look out for my quest to find more celebrity looks at affordable prices. 

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for your comment on my blog, so we both are Rachel Bilson's fan when it comes to style :) But i think her style now is quite different from when I wrote about her style in my blog, maybe she changes stylist? ;)
    By the way, love your post!
