The Cheap Styling Trick We Learned From Our Best-Dressed List

Going to a wedding just got a lot cheaper.

We love seeing stars in glitzy gowns and haute couture on our best-dressed list, but when we spot a celebrity wearing something we can easily mimic, well, we jump for joy.

This week, Chloe Grace Moretz stepped onto the red carpet in a simple black bodysuit and a fun metallic skirt. While everyone may not have a bodysuit in their closet, most women have a long-sleeved black shirt that works as the perfect base for creating a fancy outfit.

And she wasn't the only A-lister in a look we wanted to copy. Shay Mitchell convinced us to wear wrap dresses again, Reese Witherspoon made a case for purple and Lupita Nyong'o convinced us that neon is the way to go.

Check out our favorite looks of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.

You can wear basics on the red carpet.

Chloe Grace Moretz in Proenza Schouler and Wolford: We love this look because it's very attainable. Most people have a long-sleeved black shirt, and when paired with fancier bottoms, it can be red carpet (or wedding, or cocktail party) appropriate.
Wrap dresses are flattering and versatile.

Shay Mitchell in Temperley London: This right here is proof that wrap dresses are anything but boring. Mitchell's silk-chiffon dress, complete with bugle beads, mirrored paillettes and crystals, update the wrap dress in all the right ways.
Fit is key.

Michelle Monaghan in Victoria Beckham: Between the expert draping, the high neckline and the cinched in waist, this ensemble is a home run.
Try out neons.

Lupita Nyong'o in Dolce & Gabbana: Nyong'o's dress looks like a breath of spring. The neon hue could be too bright, but with those delicate white flowers and her minimal accessories, it's making just the right statement.
Blondes look great in purple.

Reese Witherspoon in David Koma: This shade of purple looks so rich on the blonde beauty. It really works to brighten her complexion and make her standout amidst a sea of neutral-colored dresses.
Black isn't boring.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Head-to-toe black can make for an eye-catching outfit, provided you go for pieces with interesting details. Here, Paltrow's wide-legged pants and frilly top make her look fashion-forward.
