People are obsessed with influencer and reality star Kaitlynn Carter’s style, and for good reason. Here’s how you can recreate her signature looks.
You might know Kaitlynn Carter from her appearance on the reality show The Hills, or perhaps from her relationship with Brody Jenner. But if you’re not super familiar with her, here are some things you might not know.
She’s a new mom! She recently traded in the party scene for family life and had a baby boy with her beau Kristopher Brock in September 2021. We love how Kaitlynn unapologetically shows how wonderful motherhood is.
Outside of being an undoubtedly busy mom, Kaitlynn is an ambassador for the American Wild Horse Campaign. She also has an impressive 945k Instagram followers. And it’s easy to see why – her style strikes an effortless balance between the cool girl influencer, relatable mom, and Western wear.
These are five of our favorite looks of hers and how you can recreate them with pieces that are $150 or less.
Who doesn’t love a beautiful maxi dress? We love the ultra-chic high neckline and how it flares out at the bottom. While Kaitlynn’s actual dress was from Staud and would cost you upwards of $300, these options will give you a similar vibe for a fraction of the cost.
If you love the light blue color of her purse but are on a budget, this option from Madewell is a bestseller for a reason.
With summer fast approaching, we all need to get our swim outfits ready. And why not go for a cute floral bikini with what is pretty much the most fun cover-up I think I’ve ever seen?
J.Crew Crossback Underwire Bikini in “Liberty Meadow Song Floral,” Top $88 | Bottom $75
J.Crew makes good quality swimwear that will last you all summer, but it’s also not going to cost you an arm and a leg. This floral one is a great way to recreate Kaitlynn’s look.
Lulus Nova Marigold Multi Floral Print Bikini, Top $38 | Bottom $39
At an even more affordable price point, this darling swimsuit from Lulus will help you get the look without breaking the bank. The high-waisted bottom gives a fun retro vibe to your suit while staying still very much on trend.
Crochet items can be pricey. This one is a steal and a pretty great match for Kaitlynn’s original cardigan, which was undoubtedly not budget friendly.
How cute is her country-inspired outfit? It balances Western and chic, giving you just enough of a country vibe without making you feel out of place and costume-like.
Technically Kaitlynn’s dress is a mini, but this one fit the Western vibe so well that I had to include it as a recreation option.
If you want to stick to the mini dress silhouette, this option is absolutely darling. Seriously considering adding it to my cart.
Who else has an urge to buy everything burgundy after looking at these dresses? I know it can’t just be me.
These cowgirl booties are a great way to dip your toe into the Western trend without springing for a full blown mid-calf boot. Ones made with real leather can also get pretty pricey, so a vegan pair is great if you object to wearing real leather or if you’re just watching your spending.
To replicate the plaid, go with these chelsea booties.
Silk Meets the Tropics
A silk skirt combined with a breezy white blouse and sandals has “chic vacation” written all over it. If you’re going somewhere tropical this summer, consider packing an outfit like this one for your trip.
This is a reasonably priced silk skirt with amazing online reviews, and it comes in the same champagne color Kaitlynn wore. Perfect for an outfit recreation (and for wearing with just about everything else).
Blue straps and square toes? Check! This is the kind of sandal you can wear again and again. Plus while hers might be an expensive pair, Steve Madden makes an affordable pair that will last you a few seasons and still look amazing.
Girls Night Out
Everybody needs a classic going out with the girls outfit. And what’s better than the classic LBD and some statement heels? Clearly Kaitlynn agrees.
Kaitlynn Carter has great style. I mean she pretty much has every woman’s dream wardrobe. But while many of her items are on the pricier side, it’s possible to recreate her looks on a budget. We hope that you feel inspired and maybe even discovered a couple pieces you love to add to your wish list or straight to your cart.
