How To Get This Cate Blanchette Chic Blue Suit For Less

Cate Blanchette was a front row celebrity at London Fashion Week at Roksanda last weekend. As so many celebrities do, she was wearing a look from the designer’s collection. However, this lovely blue suit was not new but it was from the Roksanda 2018 collection! She pulled it off (again) flawlessly. The first time Cate was seen in this suit was at Cannes in 2018 and she wore it with white pumps and the scarf of the blouse was tied in a bow. This time she went with neutral accessories and left the tie on the blouse to flow dramatically in the front. We love her for wearing something over again, and 2 years later! It just goes to prove that if you carefully choose a basic designer suit, you can get a lot of wear out of it. So now we want to steal her style. Roksanda is a beautiful line of clean and architectural pieces to invest in, but it is also pricey! That’s why we found a way to get this Cate Blanchette blue suit look for less!

The Pale Yellow Scarf Tie Blouse

Cate Blanchette’s soft yellow scarf tie blouse is the one piece that makes her whole outfit come together. Especially the way she is wearing the scarf long and untied. This Petite Nine West Silk-Blend Tie Neck Blouse is only $27.20, and you can wear the ties in one knot so it hangs down (probably not as long as Cate’s) and you can emulate her basic look for a lot less cash.

This Verdusa Tie Neck Embroidered Mesh Ruffle Blouse is from Amazon for only $18.99. The yellow color is deeper, but very on trend, and you can wear this top with one knot at the neck or try it untied, too.light yellow scarf and blouse fountainof30

Try a Pale Yellow Scarf with a Blouse

Another way to get Cate’s dramatic scarf tie look is with an actual scarf over a blouse with a high neckline. Try this Bellonesc 100% Silk Long Scarf for $15.99 with this 1.State Flutter Sleeve Smocked Neck Blouse for $79 to get the look with two pieces.

The Top Handle Bag

Cate’s Roksanda box bag is so lovely, but you can adore this CAM Camel Half Moon Cross Body Bag from Topshop just as much! Especially since it is only $48. I’d take off the cross body strap and carry it with the top handle for this outfit.

The Neutral Pump

These taupe suede Evolve Robin Pumps are similar in color to Cate’s shoes and have an easy-to-wear block heel. These pumps are only $88.95. I like how she got away from the classic point toes for this look, because square and rounder toe shoes are creeping their way into style.

The Ear Climber

Last but not least, Cate Blanchette is wearing a modern shape ear climber (also called ear crawler) in gold. Try this Monica Vinager Nura Teardrop Single Ear Climber for $87.50 to get Cate’s modern jewelry look. It’s the perfect finish to such a refined architectural suit look for less.

Styling Tips for This Cate Blanchette Blue Suit Look

1. Invest in a suit in a color.

Cate’s pale blue suit is a gorgeous color and it is still stylish 2 years later. Choose a medium tone color or a color you love besides basic black or navy. Often it pays to get a designer suit because of the quality and the fashion-forward styling, but you can also test out a color and buy a less expensive suit. This shade of blue works all year round for every season. You may find a suit in a sage, light violet or teal that you can wear the same way.

2. Add drama to your look with a long scarf. 

You can see how the long scarf ties on Cate’s blouse add a lot of color and flow to a basic pant suit. The scarf totally dresses up this look and you can get away with wearing pants when everyone else is wearing dresses. A long scarf can take your suit from office to evening.

3. Wear neutrals with color.

When wearing two standout colors like Cate’e blue and yellow, opt for neutral accessories like camel, taupe or gray. Especially with pastels, it is the solution to keeping your accessories from looking too busy, and from competing with the rest of the outfit.
