“Simple Life” star and celeb personality Paris Hilton has always been a master of glam style. Although Paris is now in her late-30s — shocking, right? — she still has that fresh-faced, fun-loving look that earned her the title of New York’s leading IT girl way back in 2001. Frankly, I love Paris Hilton’s style right now; at 37, she’s as provocative and alluring as ever.

Hilton was recently spotted cruising the streets of Beverly Hills wearing a very accessible maxi dress ensemble. And of course, when I saw that outfit, I went shopping. Read on for the download on Paris’ weekday shopping outfit and find out how you can put together the same look for less.

Paris Hilton Style

For a warm summer day of shopping, Paris wears a flirty, yellow summer maxi dress, paired with simple nude heels, a bright coral satchel and bold, white sunnies. The dress is an elegant length, but still shows off some skin with a cut-out above the waist and two very high slits. Nude heels with no embellishments are the right choice to anchor this ensemble, as the coral bag stars in this show.

Paris Hilton Look for Less

1. The Patterned Maxi ($49)

To dupe Paris’ style, start by finding a patterned maxi dress. It doesn’t have to be yellow, but a bright, summer color will have the most impact. I found this tie-front piece from Nordstrom ($49) which also has the flirty cutout above the waist. There are no thigh-high slits on this dress, but that’s mostly a good thing in terms of wearability.

2. The Bright Bag ($75)

Coral satchel

The next component of your ensemble is a bright, coordinating — but not matchy — bag. Choose a satchel that’s at least a few shades off of a color featured in your dress. If you like our pick, a vegan leather piece from Nordstrom Rack, act fast because it’s on clearance for $75 and selling fast.

3. Nude Pumps ($86)

Nude slingback pumps

A simple shoe works best with the Paris-inspired ensemble. My pick is this nude slingback from Charles David, on sale at Zappos for $86. You can go with a kitten heel or something taller, as long as you skip the buckles, ties and embellishments.

4. White-Framed Sunnies ($25)

A cat-eye inspired pair of sunglasses completes the look. Choose squared-off shapes if you have a round face, or rounder styles if you have an angular face. This pair by Ilymix has a thick, white frame and a bluish-gray lens. They’re also ultra budget-friendly, at $39. Even better, you can get $15 off here.

The last piece of this Paris Hilton outfit is the small dog you can carry with one hand. But I say leave the pets at home, so your hands are free for shopping!
