How to Dress Like Kelsea Ballerini on a Budget

by Gabriella De Leon March 21, 2016

Let’s face it, Kelsea Ballerini always looks super cute. Besides a fantastic set of pipes (that girl can SING), she has a killer sense of fashion. We clearly cannot contain our excitement for the ACMs in April, so to pass the time we compiled three of our favorite Kelsea looks and scavenged through the internet for similar (and inexpensive) outfit ideas so you can dress like this fabulous country star.

Look One: The City Girl



Why we love this outfit: It’s all about the dramatic effect and versatility. This outfit would be perfect for a day out in the city, with the black knit sweater on top for fun that goes into the evening. It’s fun, flirty and bold.

How to recreate it: Our variation of this outfit is as close to the original as we could make it. We chose all black pieces with little hints of gold to add some eye-catching detailing—you can use any other subtle color such as silver. The fun part about outfit-copying is adding your own twist. Once you have the dainty details, it’s time for the main event. The chunky necklace calls the eyes upward and the fringed booties move the eyes downward. These two pieces keep the outfit balanced and interesting.

We’ve noticed that part of Kelsea’s unique style is her use of statement pieces. She likes to keep things simple while adding a loud piece or two. To finish this outfit off, we’d suggest keeping the make-up to a minimum. Some eyeliner, mascara and a lip balm with a slight tint would be very Kelsea-esque.

Look Two: Flirty Chic

Why we love this outfit: It’s super sweet and fun. This is a perfect introduction to the spring season

How to recreate it: This time we decided to show you how you can have the same concept in your own style. Again, the main thing to focus on is the statement piece(s). In this case, we have the bright hot-pink shoes. For this outfit it is important to choose a neutral color for the top so that the floral skirt and the shoes can really POP! However, as Kelsea shows us, neutral doesn’t have to be boring. You can choose any top you’d like. We decided to go with this peak-a-boo cut-out top— because you know… Details, details, details. For the skirt we’d suggest picking a floral pattern that has little bits of pink to tie the entire outfit together. Lastly, have fun with the pink shoes. You definitely can’t hide them, so pick a pair you love and run with it (not literally)!

Look Three: The Star

Jack Daniel's Bash on Broadway: New Year's Eve in Music City

Why we love this outfit: Those sparkly boots. Of course.

How to recreate it: For this last look we took her actual outfit, got inspired, and made it our own. BootRoxx is all about being bold, so instead of the navy blue, we chose a color that would really turn heads: bright red. We kept the wide shorts because having the fabric move away from the thickest part of your legs makes them appear thinner. We stayed away from accessories for two reasons. Firstly, because the top is so busy; secondly, because the boots should be the real star of the outfit. To match our eye-catching top, we chose the BootRoxx Sugar Skull boot covers. They are just the right amount of sparkle and kick to top this outfit off.
