Looks for Less: Celebrity Moms

So maybe getting your own stylist and make-up artist is out of the question, but who’s to say you can’t use stars’ wardrobes as inspiration for your own? This is especially true when it comes to everyday looks. Celebrity moms have to make grocery store runs and drop off kids at practice too, sans-stilettos. See, they really are just like us (kinda)!

Get their everyday looks and look a million bucks—without paying nearly as much. Read on for outfit breakdowns and budget-friendly suggestions for four of our favorite celeb mommas!

Angelina Jolie


Blouse | Pants | Jersey Cardigan | Tote Bag | Aviator Sunglasses | Ballet Flats

It’s a wonder that this hot mom of six/humanitarian/actress has time to even dress herself in the morning! Perhaps that’s why she typically sticks to an all-black uniform—convenience. Whatever the reason, she rocks the dark hue and so can you. Try a pair of skinny or straight-legged chinos or slacks and a loose fitting blouse or sweater for a casual look. Add her signature aviator sunglasses, black flats, and a tote bag and you’ll be looking like this svelte star in no time!

Michelle Obama

Dress | Cardigan | Printed Skirt | Pumps

This busy mom is sometimes discussed more for her iconic style than her political endeavors, and for good reason. Michelle works hard to keep her two daughters grounded and you see the same sense in her fashion choices. She gravitates towards simple, but colorful pieces—a great balance. Channel the First Lady in your wardrobe with solid colored conservative dresses, printed skirts and cardigans.

Kelly Ripa

Blazer | Blouse | Oversized Aviators | Straight Leg Jeans | Heels | Necklace

This Live! With Kelly star loves to dish about her family life—from her hilarious mishaps with the kids to romantic dinner dates with her hubby. This down to earth mom, Kelly, seems to have it all together, including her style.  Her go to look? Trendy business casual. Try it yourself by pairing jeans with a blouse or button-down shirt and nude heels. Throw on a blazer for those chilly days and accessorize with oversized shades and a long necklace.

Jessica Alba

Trench Coat | Satchel | Sweater | Chinos | Scarf | Sunglasses | Flats

For a totally do-able look, Jessica Alba seems to be the mommy to look towards. She seems to have a good handle on mom-time and me-time and dresses sensibly for her days out with little Honor. For a casual-cute outfit, pair olive colored chinos with a sweater, or top and cardigan. Add a pop of color with a fun trench coat, and complete the look with neutral colored pashmina, satchel, and flats.
