We’ve seen her grace the red carpet in gowns we can only dream of owning, drooled over her Nylon and Teen Vogue spreads, ticked through her “street style” galleries on celeb-gossip sites, and admit it, we all envied her Jonas Brother attachment (RIP JoeMilla!)… We just have to give it to her- Camilla Belle has some pretty fantastic taste! Be it a signature nude lip or her chic, yet organic sensibility, she always seems just a few steps ahead of the rest of us.
Well, the gang here at BFF thinks imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so to show how much we love her, we’re bringing you two Camilla looks to admire and replicate…
Now, we know what you’re thinking and you’ve got it all wrong. It’s probably something along the lines of “Hold the phone! Pfft I can’t afford her Gucci frames much less a McQueen mini dress!” isn’t it?
Sigh We thought so. Well, try to have a little faith, ladies because as always, we’ve got you covered. Each of these outfits comes in at under $200 a piece! 🙂
So, let’s get started, shall we?
Look one: Whether you’re taking in a show with your BFF or your dinner-date fantasy with the crush next door is finally coming true, you’ll be turning heads in this soft, Max Azria inspired number! Camilla’s asymmetrical, kelly-green, cocktail dress is paired with silver pumps, a printed clutch and tons of accessories- it’s simple and demure with just a hint of flirtation.

Although the Mitzy dress is a different shade from the original, the cut, the shape and the design is so close we almost couldn’t believe our eyes! We added texture with a stitched pump and did double duty with our faux, snakeskin wristlet by pulling in some much needed color. Lastly, taking Camilla’s lead, we threw out the rule book on separating our metallics and pulled the look together with silver and gold jewelry accents. And we did it all for just $178!
Look two: Take the glam down a few notches with this casual, day-in-the park-wear. Seen at this year’s Coachella music festival, Camilla is rocking a mono-tonal color palette that screams “relaxed, summer cool”. Just nix a few accessories and switch the boots for a pair of Huarache heels and PRESTO! you’re off to a lunch-date with the girls. It’s easy, it’s versatile and most importantly, it’s comfortably-chic.

We may have strayed from Camilla’s floral print but this tribal frock is short, sweet and just as summery. Paired with Forever21’s crochet sweater and drawstring tote and it’s almost a spot on reproduction. Though we love Ms. Belle’s Frye boots, they’re just a tad too much for our bank. But no worries- our best find of the day was Rocketdog’s faux leather, motorcycle boots! For a quarter of the cost we got the same weight, feel and texture, all without sparing an inch for style! To finish, we topped it off with understated yet eccentric accessories and jewelry finds! The total cost for this look was $199.
