We've seen her grow from the tiny 10-year-old Hermione on the big screen to a genuine fashion icon in real life. For years, Emma Watson has been wowing us with her edgy, but always classy, starlet style. Favoring short dresses, solid colors and bold accessories, she constantly steals the paparazzi's attention -- and our hearts. Although Watson can usually be spotted wearing the high-end brands only celebrities can afford, we've found less expensive substitutes for some of our favorite fashion moments.

Festive casual wear
Music festival outfits are often questionable at best. Music lovers seem to think that crazier is better and few succeed in garnering fashion envy. While attending the Glastonbury Music Festival in 2010, Watson turned the tables and wore catwalk casual. Hardly boring but far from crazy, Watson's outfit still leaves us in awe. Classic pieces are happily married with surprising details for a perfect summer look.
Casual daytime outfits don't have to be schlubby or plain, as Watson proves. Next time you hit the mall, movie theater or outdoor event of your own, remember that one bold extra like a leopard print belt can make the outfit look put together even if you threw it on in five minutes.

Steal the look
Always a classic, a crisp white shirt can dress up even the most basic clothes. Take a cue from Watson and try fun details like shoulder ruffles. Whether or not you choose to go plain, remember that a tucked in button-up usually looks best.

Distressed denim shorts
Denim with the pockets showing is always going to be the most casual look you can get, but for those who can pull it off, it offers a nice contrast to structured pieces. For those who find tears and frays messy, a washed style offers the same lived-in feel. To copy Watson's look, choose a short with a higher waist.

Casual and cool, solid color sneakers look put together, not like you're trying to go to the gym. Their comfort and versatility make them the perfect summer shoe.
3. Champion Canvas Seasonal in Light Chambray ($35)
Leopard print belt
The ultimate in fashion, a belt with this print makes every outfit look more expensive -- if it's well-made. Spend a little more for one with a good fabric, natural looking pattern and sturdy buckle.
