Get the look for less

Know why we've got such a huge style crush on Jennifer Garner? Because the movie star and mom of three is just as comfortable in a pair of skinny jeans and a tee as she is a glitzy gown. Steal her A-list looks for a lot less with our budget-friendly alternatives below.

Do blue jean baby the right way, and copy Jennifer's casual cool denim look for a day of running errands or taking the kids to the park. While you may not be able to afford her luxe blue Givenchy python tote, rest assured you can still snag the style for a fraction of the cost with this lookalike trendy snakeskin patterned bag. Pair your basic button-down top with a simple black circle skirt that hits just above the knee like Jen. Then slip into some chic black ballet flats (so you can easily keep up with the kids), and finish your look off with a pair of on-trend cat-eye shades. A real outfit for real moms who understand that schlepping around town in a hot dress and high heels isn't always practical with little ones.

When you're a mom sometimes it's really hard to strike the perfect balance between chic and casual. Of course, you want to look haute, but the likelihood that you'll wind up with some spitup on your shirt (or have to use your sleeve as a snot rag) is pretty darn good. That's why we're digging Jennifer Garner's sporty yet fashion forward getup. Instead of splurging on a $400-plus flannel shirt like her, though, save yourself the tears and cash by picking out a quality plaid top for $100 or less. Team it with some chic skinny jeans (the darker the color the slimmer your legs will look), and subtly dress up your entire outfit with some wear-anywhere beige sneaker wedges.

Jennifer Garner proves that less really is more in this warm weather work-friendly ensemble that'll take you straight from the office to a dinner date with your hubby. Show off your summer pedi in a pair of pretty, nude sling-back platform pumps in a sensible height, and keep things conservative up top with a simple sleeveless gray dress similar to Garner's. A dainty little circle necklace, oversized bag and sunnies will have you looking like the hautest working mom on the block. Because you are, duh.
