Adorable & Affordable: Celebrity Designers

I don’t know about you, but I love it when celebrities try their hand at designing. It is the easiest and cheapest way to catch a glimpse into their closet and personal style. While many celebs have entered the fashion game, there are truly only a handful of celebrity designers that have the ability to make a lasting and successful brand. I absolutely love Rachel Zoe’s line for Shopbop, but the price tag? Not so much. But after conducting some in field research (aka mall trolling), I have found a few celebrity lines that are adorable and affordable- a win-win in my books!

So, here a few of the celeb brands I love to shop..

Sophia Bush for Joe Fresh
When I first heard that Sophia Bush was designing her own clothing line, I couldn’t help but be giddy with delight. Bush has been a favourite of mine since her Tree Hill High days and I was so thrilled she’s picking up where Brooke Davis left off. Not only is the line filled to the brim with on trend yet laid back clothes, but she’s also using her clothes to spread an important message, specifically a graphic tee claiming love shouldn’t be divided and all kisses are created equally.

LC Lauren Conrad
Lauren Conrad has always said that she bases her designs off clothes that she and her friends would wear, and thank goodness for that! Her line is feminine, girly and beautiful- exactly what I imagine Lauren’s closet looking like. Each season I anxiously await for her sneak peek into her newest collection and honestly, each collection is better than the last. If I could buy my entire wardrobe from LC’s line I would in a heartbeat.

Eva Mendes Collection
Not only is Eva Mendes a proud new mama and Mrs. Ryan Gosling, but she is also a killer fashion designer. Though Mendes keeps her personal life out of the media, her line is very fun and flirty. From A-line dresses to lace sleeves, Eva’s line is business appropriate with the perfect amount of girly girl finishes. Before writing this post I wasn’t even aware that Eva had entered the designing world, but after an afternoon of endless scrolling I am hooked!

Elizabeth & James
90’s ladies rejoice, MK & Ash have got your back! Mary-Kate & Ashley have been the ultimate trendsetters since they were wee babes, so it’s no surprise they’ve produced one of the most stylish brands on the market today. Elizabeth and James combine a uptown feminine touch with a laid back masculine downtown vibe. Wear Elizabeth or James, the choice is entirely up to you. But when the two are combined, it creates a truly classic Olsen look.

Scandal Collection for Limited
When it comes to business attire, no one does it better than Olivia Pope. Besides from the endless drama, Olivia’s clothing is what keeps this viewer coming back week after week. Her style is sophisticated, sassy and classic all rolled into one beautiful double door, walk in closet. An added bonus? Kerry Washington herself had a hand in designing the line, so you know it’s Jake & Fitz approved ;).
