I'm on a Mission to Buy Jennifer Lawrence's The Row Suit With My Zara Budget

If I had to wear one brand for the rest of my days, it would most likely be The Row. Elegant, luxurious, and utterly timeless, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's beloved label really does check off every box. Unfortunately, at this point in my life, my budget tends to lean more toward Zara than it does The Row, at least when it comes to non-splurge purchases. As a result, I've learned a trick or two about finding the chicest, most expensive-looking pieces from the affordable fashion brand (and others like it) that allow me to get The Row look at a fraction of the price.

Because of this, when I first laid eyes on the look Jennifer Lawrence recently wore to a London Q&A panel for her new movie Causeway—a black waistcoat paired with matching trousers and a simple tee, all from The Row's spring/summer 2023 collection—my immediate reflex was to find something similar at a price I could afford. Luckily, with everything I've learned over the years, it didn't take long to gather everything necessary to recreate the tailored outfit IRL.
