It’s always assumed that when a celebrity steps out they’re always dressed in pricey designer pieces, but that’s not always the case. Surprisingly, some celebs actually love to wear clothing designed by low and mid-range brands. Seeing them look amazing in accessible and affordable pieces is proof that it doesn’t take a ton of cash to look like a million bucks. Check out our list of stylish, fashionable famous people who love to wear budget-friendly pieces.

1. Kendall Jenner – Forever 21

Kendall Jenner has access to some of the most glamorous luxury pieces. For her day job, she struts down the runway in outfits designed by big name fashion brands, like Chanel and Givenchy. But when she’s away from the catwalk, the reality TV star-turned-supermodel likes to keep things cool and casual. Don’t be surprised if you see her hit the town in items by fast-fashion retailer Forever 21, like the time she stepped out in one of their jackets that had a price tag of under $50.

2. Kate Middleton – Topshop

Even royals aren’t afraid to shop with the rest of us commoners. When she was still pregnant with Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton was photographed spending some time with her first born, Prince George. The media was shocked when they realized her jeans weren’t made by an uber-expensive designer label. Instead, the Duchess of Cambridge had on a pair of Moto Blue Leigh maternity jeans made by the brand Topshop. And get this, they cost only $70!

Luxury designers live for red carpet events. It’s their opportunity to show the world what they’re made of by designing pricey gowns for Hollywood A-listers.

Instead, she showed up in an AQ/AQ cutout gown that retailed for $273. And the best part was: She still looked like a million bucks! Hough is proof that you don’t need to spend a fortune to look your best.

4. Beyoncé – H&M

She and her husband Jay-Z may have a combined net worth of over $1 billion dollars, but that doesn’t mean Beyoncé is opposed to doing some thrifty clothes shopping. In this photo, the songstress was spotted out in a Topshop sequined dress that was priced at $95. However, this wasn’t the first time Beyoncé was looking flawless in affordable pieces. She has also been spotted wearing clothing made by fast-fashion retailer H&M and contemporary designer Alice + Olivia.


5. Jennifer Lopez – ZSupply

Even though she was out on a luxury vacation with her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez decided to leave the luxury garb at home. The couple vacationed in Paris, France – the birth country to many top designers, including Coco Chanel, Olivier Rousteing, and Christian Dior. But on this day, Lopez wasn’t trying to impress the fashion gods. She was more than content hanging out in her $38 Z Supply T-shirt.
