Blink and You'll Miss Blake Lively's Affordable Styling Trick

We love when we spot a celeb perfectly mixing high-end pieces with more affordable ones. And oftentimes, it's nearly impossible to spot the item that boasts a lower price tag. (Remember when we asked you to identify the under-$100 pieces in Zendaya's best red carpet looks? Not an easy task.) Now, Blake Lively is the latest star to master the art of high-low dressing, and you most likely missed her chic, affordable styling trick.

A quick look at Lively's recent nighttime ensemble, and you'll immediately spot a timeless little black dress, which hails from one of her favorite brands, Brandon Maxwell. A black crossbody bag, dome-studded Christian Louboutin's, and elegant jewelry round out her look. But wait, there's more.

If you look closely, you'll see there's another piece draped over her arms, which gives the entire ensemble a more relaxed feel. After a bit of investigating, we discovered Lively paired her Brandon Maxwell slip dress with another LBD—a $110 oversize shirtdress from Aritzia. Rather than wearing it as a dress, however, she kept it unbuttoned, styling it as a drape/jacket. Genuis, Blake! Now, read on to see her complete look, and then shop the affordable (and versatile) shirtdress for yourself.
