Sometimes we all want to look like a million dollars, but most of time we don’t have a million dollars to spend. When the celebs hit the red carpet they are often kitted head to toe in the latest fashion designer and they have the most amazing, beautiful jewelry dangling from their necks, ears and wrists. To buy items like this on any normal persons budget would be impossible, but it is still possible to buy beautiful pieces of jewelry on a smaller budget, so panic not!
Here I’ll have a look through some gorgeous red carpets looks, and let you know where you can buy some similar pieces for a much tinier price-tag! So you can still afford a gorgeous dress and killer heels too!

Taylor Swift – Understated but glamorous
Taylor Swift’s style is often understated and simple – but very elegant and eye catching. To recreate her gorgeous look, target some high street jewellers and ask to look at their cubic zirconia range. Taylor swift usually opts for purely silver, rarely mixing metals as it can look too fussy and detailed. The key to this look is simplicity, keep the shapes and patterns to a minimal and choose just one of two statement pieces, nothing else is needed.
Heidi Klum – fun and fresh
The beautiful Heidi is one of the older models around at the moment, so she keeps herself looking young and fresh by keeping jewelry fun and fresh too.
The turquoise necklace is a real statement piece and shows off her features to perfection. Nothing else is needed when you’re wearing a necklace like this as it is so detailed and fantastic on its own.

A great place to find pieces like this are often fashion retailers (have a look on websites such as TopShop or ASOS) as they will often try and recreate these bold looks at a fraction of the price. Team yours with a simple dress (you don’t want to draw away the attention) beige is the colour Heidi has opted for and it works so well!
Jennifer Lopez – bold, glam and vintage
As always, Jennifer Lopez looks perfectly polished and her jewelry style is exactly the same. Her earrings and necklace are both timeless glamour with an vintage edge and the gold suits her complexion perfectly.
To achieve a look like this yourself on a budget, a great place to start is a charity shop or second hand jewelry store. These kinds of shops often have the more vintage jewelry styles and usually have new pieces donated every week – so it’s worth a couple of visits if you don’t find what you’re looking for straight away.

With a look like this, the key is coordination. Make sure your earring and necklace are similar (if possible, matching) as it adds to the polished and perfected look you’re after. Team with a figure hugging, glamorous dress and smoky eyes or red lips.
Lady GaGa – Wacky and Original
Famous for her crazy and original style, this beautiful singer never disappoints on the red carpet. Here she chooses a quirky head piece and veil and a studded wrist cuff.
To get a look like this you need to think outside the box. Visit art markets, second hand stores and craft stores. You’ll be able to customise you’re current pieces and make them look new and fresh, or you could buy some great staple pieces (Shops like Monsoon offer these on a high street budget) and them customise them to your liking!
There should be no limit when you want to channel this kind of red carpet style, really think about who you are and what you’re trying to say about yourself with your jewelry and accessories.
