Between designer loans and lavish celebrity budgets, A-list outfits often don’t come cheap. Which means for most of us regular people, they can be hard to copy. Every once in a while, though, stars step out in wallet-friendly styles, proving you can still look chic without spending a fortune.

We’ve kept track of those moments and compiled them here, from Hailey Bieber in $100 Adidas sneakers to Meghan Markle in under $200 Castañer shoes that are perfect for any beach vacation. Keep reading to discover the affordable brands these stars and others keep in their closets.


Hailey Bieber, Kate Middleton and Kendall Jenner are just a few notable names who love Adidas. The brand offers tons of classic and comfortable choices that won’t break the bank, from running shoes to lifestyle sneakers and pool slides. Notably, Hailey’s husband is also a fan of the latter.

Ancient Greek sandals

If you’re looking for the ultimate summer shoe, you might find your match in the ancient Greek sandals. The up-and-coming sandal brand, which debuted in 2012, has since made fans of Jessica Alba and Chrissy Teigen with its classic slingback looks, strappy sandals and minimalist slides. All options are handcrafted by skilled Greek artisans using traditional techniques that have been around for centuries. The shoes are chemical free and made with natural leather, which actually looks better over time as it ages, allowing you to get more wear out of your sandals.

It’s safe to say that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have effectively put Castañer’s wedges on the map. In fact, the brand’s Carina wedge sold out instantly after Markle wore the pair for a public appearance in 2018. Fortunately, the summer wedges are up for grabs again. Markle’s go-to pick features a canvas closed toe, jute wedge heel and soft ankle ties. For those who don’t want the extra height, the brand also offers flat sneaker styles. Most sell for less than $150.

Dr Martens

Thanks to the rise of 90s nostalgia, Dr. Martens is back. The British heritage brand has been a hit with millennials and the Gen Z crowd lately, including Hollywood’s elite. Follow Gigi Hadid’s lead and wear the classic 1460 boot with a Canadian tuxedo, or try it with a flowy dress and bare legs on warm days. For a more unexpected look, opt for Dr. Marten’s oxford silhouettes, which offer a unique take on the brand’s signature style.
