We all know her as the ever stylish Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, but recently, Blake Lively has made her mark in the fashion world, with her elegant style and love for glamorous couture. After gracing the cover of Vogue at just 22 years old, the now 23-year-old Blake is the fresh new face of Chanel.

With her West Coast looks and East Coast style, the California-born actress and model is a fantastic source of fashion inspiration. Her style is a combination of bohemian chic and old Hollywood glam that cannot be missed on any red carpet. So for those of you who are dying to dress like her, below, I'll show you how to get Blake Lively's style... for less!

How to Get Blake Lively's Style for Less!

As always, it's easier than you think to emulate this celeb's look without completely breaking your budget. Want proof? The following outfits are comprised of items that cost $100 dollars or less. And keep in mind that these ensembles are just suggestions - you can always use stuff you already own as well!

1. Denim Darling

Jacket, Shirt, Bag, Scarf, Jeans, Boots

Blake looks effortlessly cool here in a worn denim jacket, loose-fitting gray t-shirt, black leggings and ankle boots. This look is easy to put together, stylish and most of all comfortable. Whether you're running errands, going to class, or grabbing lunch, this casual style is a great go-to for when you're not in the mood for constricting clothing.

2. Boyfriend Blazer and Beyond

Blake's ensemble here would be perfect to emulate for a night on the town. I love her tweed skirt, but most of all I love the boyfriend blazer that reaches the hemline of her skirt for a super chic, laid-back aesthetic. She turned an outfit that could be considered "dull" into a trendy and fashionable look by just adding the 3/4 length sleeve jacket and a bohemian chain necklace.

3. Parisian Chic

If you're looking for a fresh and flirty look for summer, this is your outfit! I think Blake looks perfect here in her lace overlay nude frock and fedora. This look is very Parisian-chic (she was in Paris when she wore this outfit) and beautiful, but to spice things up a bit, instead of a the usual strappy sandals, opt for a pair of wingtips and cropped blazer for a new spin on classic style.

4. Blue & Beautiful

As you can see here, Blake isn't afraid of color and you shouldn't be either! Here, Blake looks trendy, chic and fresh in her royal blue capri pants. However, my favorite part of her look is the stunning sequined blazer she rocked. I think sequins can be hard to pull off, but her blazer is sleek, in a great shade of gold, and is overall the perfect finishing touch on a great outfit.

5. Blazing Hot

While in the winter I am all about black blazers to add elegance and class to tight dress, in the spring and summer I am in love with white and light-colored blazers. I think the light-colored blazer is such a fresh new play on '80s style, while still being sophisticated and chic. Blake paired her nude-colored blazer with a simple LBD here, but I chose a navy blue dress for a nod to the nautical look, and accessorized with boho-chic jewelry and some gorgeous heels.
