Emily In Paris, the latest project of Darren Starr (Sex and the City), follows Emily (Lily Collins) a young marketing executive who just moved to Paris to work as the American perspective of a venerable French marketing firm.
While the show is overall feel-good and fun, one aspect in which it truly shines is its fashion. Afterall in the fashion capital of the world, it’d be a crime to wear anything less than glamorous. While I’m sure we’d all love to walk around dressed like Emily, Mindy, or Camille, there’s one tiny caveat: Wearing their clothes would probably get us bankrupt. Luckily, you don’t have to wear Louboutin pumps or Kenzo coats to look stylish and chic. All you need are the right pieces in whatever price range you can afford.
Check out the affordable pieces you can buy right now to look like Lily Collins from Emily in Paris:
The now sold out Alice & Olivia Paris print blouse is one of the standout pieces from the whole show. Even though we can’t steal the blouse, we can definitely steal the style!

Heel Leather Ankle Boots, P4995, MANGO, zalora.com.ph
Here’s a twist, this is one of the few pieces in the show that’s actually affordable and still on the market! Not only that it’s a very unique and versatile piece that adds a pinch of romance to any outfit.

Even Emily knows that a good co-ord set will save you time when dressing up! Don't settle for plain ones, though. Grab a printed one in a nice neutral print to make it casual yet still polished.
Gingham Blazer. P4295, ZARA
Gingham bermuda shorts, P2295, ZARA
As much as we would like to drop some serious bucks on a bright coat, it's just not practical to wear in Manila! Yes, even if it's a Kenzo wool and cashmere coat like Emily's wearing. Instead, a more pragmatic choice would be this long blazer from Mango.

Here's a green moment that you won't easily forget! Copy Emily's look by donning a nice green lightweight long jacket and a matching bucket bag.

You can never ever go wrong with black. But when putting together an ebony look, don't forget to mix in textures so you won't look too mundane.

Bucket hats can make a frilly look more interesting, as Emily proves. Copy her look with a versatile tweed jacket and a cool bright bucket hat to dress the tweed down.

This look proves once and for all that blazers work for any occasion, even clubbing! It’s perfect for go-getter girls who are still down to party anytime while keeping it classy. The original Zara piece, while affordable, is sadly sold out. Luckily for you, we have an alternative you can still groove in.

Dressed from head to toe in powerful pink, this is another great (and expensive) monochrome moment for Emily, that can translate into a cool (and economical) monochrome moment for you. Choose to dress in a textured hot pink jumper like below.
Fluff Cut Out Jumper, P2699, RIVER ISLAND, zalora.com.ph
I think we’re all a little in love with Emily’s Off-White floral dress and puffer jacket. Worry not though! You can get the exact same look, just look for wild prints and huge floral patterns on a puffy jacket just like this one below.
