Keira Knightly is quite the chameleon when it comes to fashion. Whether she’s wearing a designer gown (hello Tom Ford and Elie Saab) on the red carpet for Pirates of the Caribbean or going downtown grunge in skinny jeans and leather (rumor is she’s dating James Righton from the band Klaxons.) Regardless of what she’s wearing, we’re never disappointed by her constant evolving style. Get Keira Knightley’s winter-inspired look for less-way less.

A loose-fitting black tee never goes out of style. Worn tucked or un-tucked, this classic shape creates the ultimate chic statement worn with or without accessories.  This shirt has a wide neck and cuffed sleeves making it universally flattering on various body types.

Pair it with a vintage French combat jacket is a super chic military-inspired piece. It has a great vintage yet updated feel with snap pockets and cuffs, zip chest pockets, and button-down closure. Sneaking in under $60 at $59.00, this jacket is a steal.
