I'm bringing a new concept to The Mod Little Melanin! We all want to dress like the rich and famous, right? Dress Like a Celeb will show Mod Little Melanin followers where they can find affordable style dupes of the looks their favorite celebs wear!
If I could be best friends with any celebrity in the world it would have Draya of popular VH1 show Basketball Wives LA. Though, she was formally a cast member of Basketball Wives LA, she has never been connected to an NBA Player, and rather is the fiancée of Dallas Cowboys player Orlando Scandrick. Already a mother of one, Draya and Orlando welcomed child Jru (pronounced Drew) in April. The media personality is also an entrepreneur, and is the owner and creator of two clothing lines, Fine Ass Girls and Mint Swim. You can follow Draya on Instagram at @DrayaMichele.
When Draya first posted the outfit above on Instagram, I fell in love with it! While I'm sure Draya is wearing high end pieces, I was able to locate several style dupes so you could recreate this look on your budget! Sailor button shorts/pants are super popular this year, and it is no surprise that Draya sported these shorts. I was able to find an affordable pair at Forever21.com for only $19.90. The shorts are slightly high waisted, with a rolled cuff.
While Draya isn't wearing a crop top, I tried my best to find a top with a high neckline like Draya's shirt. This Knotted Hem Crop Top in White is super affordable and is only $7.90 at Forever21.com. What I love most about the top is the knotted look. While I realize you can do this with any old tank top, it simply looks better when the top is made to be that way.
I was unable to find a plaid printed vest like Draya's, but did come across a Longline Plaid Coat that is the perfect transition purse for this odd Spring weather, it is available for only $15.90 at Forever21.com.
To accesorize like Draya, I found a pair of heels from missguided.com. The Laser Cut Heeled Ankle Boots from missguided.com are everything. They feature a stiletto heel and a laser cut caged design, and are similar to the pair worn by Draya.
Add sunnies like Draya's from Forever21.com for only $7.90 and a fedora hat from Forever21.com for only $19.90.
The grand total of your Dress Like A Celeb Outfit? Only $108.90! A huge dent in the price Draya likely paid for the outfit!
