According to the latest post fromÂ GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrowâ€™s lifestyle blog and website, Gwynethâ€™s fashion edit of the NET-A-PORTER website is back â€œby popular demand.â€ Were you to pick up all of her fashion suggestions youâ€™d be spending a mereÂ 0,000+ on your spring wardrobe. If you were to pick up just the essentials that Gwyneth took the time to model your price tag would be a much more reasonable but still out of this world $23,055.
Sure, some people have money to spend like this â€“ and Iâ€™m guessing thatâ€™s the reason Gwyneth has done three of these â€œeditsâ€ with each one more expensive than the last (2011, 2012) â€“ but the vast majority of us will not be spending $23,055 on our spring wardrobes, let alone our yearly wardrobes or perhaps even our lifetime wardrobes.
While the price tags are exorbitant, Gwyneth does a great job highlighting some of the hottest spring trends.Â So, for those of you in the same boat as me (i.e. not a millionaire), Iâ€™ve put together a cheat sheet, The GOOP Edit if you will, for how to get the GOOP NET-A-PORTER spring trends for less. Way less.>/em>
GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 1: Everyday Punk
Gwynethâ€™s first look, Everyday Punk, is the most expensive of the bunch. One could argue, however, that a Valentino iPad Case isnâ€™t really part of any outfit, but I donâ€™t make the rules here. I really like this outfit, but that may have something to do with the fact that I always gravitate toward black and white (and red). While Gwyneth is insistent that panelled Rag & Bone jeans are necessary to complete the look, I stayed away from them. Besides costing $200+ per pair, those black panels may not be ideal for summer, so better to invest in a pair of jeans you can wear at least 6 months out of the year (or perhaps longer depending on your climate and proclivity for white jeans).
Hereâ€™s how to get the GOOP Everyday Punk Look for Less:
Black V-Neck Tee â€“ JCPenney â€“ $5 // Red Faux Leather Jacket â€“ Last Call by Neiman Marcus â€“ currently on sale for $69.30 (similar from ModCloth â€“ $57.99 (size S only)) //Â White Skinny JeansÂ – The Limited â€“ $79.90 // Silver Heels â€“ ASOS â€“ $50.87 // Studded iPad Case â€“ TopShop â€“ $40
GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 2: Pretty Pastels
I like where Gwyneth is going with this edit. I like it a lot! I tried to stay fairly true to her original, although the shorts youâ€™ll find below are more neutral with a great print.

GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 3: Prints and Pattern
This is definitely the most expensive look I came up with, although there are a ton of pieces included! Iâ€™m not sure why two different GOOP looks include iPad cases, but whatever. I went with it. Maybe Gwyneth is on Appleâ€™s payroll or something. (Hmm, letâ€™s hope her daughterâ€™s name isnâ€™t actually some weird corporate scheme.)
Hereâ€™s how to get the GOOP Prints and Pattern Look for Less:
Gray Knit SweaterÂ – TopShop â€“ $30 //Â Geo Skirt â€“ 6pm.com â€“ $34.99 // Steve Madden Black Ankle Boots â€“ Amazon â€“ $129.95 // Sparkle Stone Necklace â€“ Banana Republic â€“ $59.50 // Braided Cuff Bracelet â€“ Macyâ€™s â€“ $26 // Diane von Furstenberg iPad Case â€“ ShopBop â€“ $67.50
GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 4: Shorts, Dressed Up
Gwyneth seriously lost me with this look. Thereâ€™s no denying that Gwyneth has a rocking body and more power to her for showing it off. That said, Iâ€™d probably give anyone over the age of 25 some serious side eye if I saw them walking down the street in a midriff baring top. That said, I LOVE the idea of dressy shorts. If a mini skirt can be dressy apparel, why not shorts?
Hereâ€™s how to get the GOOP Shorts, Dressed Up Look for Less:
Pleated Neck Blouse â€“ Mango â€“ $29.99 // Pleated Shorts â€“ J. Crew â€“ $59.50 // Metallic Heels â€“ ASOS â€“ $42.39 // Lucite Clutch â€“ Zappos â€“ $64.99 // Alfani Crystal Bib Necklace â€“ Macyâ€™s â€“ $42.50
GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 5: Maxi at Home
According to Gwyneth, this is what you wear for a â€œnight inâ€ with guests. However, if I was wearing the $1,615 skirt Gwyneth is wearing below I would demand that my husband take me out for a night on the town. I would probably take and treat the guests that I had invited over for the evening as well! (Because, you know, if I was wearing a $1,615 skirt just because then I could certainly afford to treat everyone to a fancy dinner!)

GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 6: Mini and Metallic
AnyÂ Project Runway fans in the house? When I saw this look of Gwynethâ€™s I immediately thought of Michelle Franklinâ€™s winning look for Lord & Taylor from last weekâ€™s episode. I know theyâ€™re totally different color palettes, but thereâ€™s something about the style that and cut that seems similar.
While I probably wonâ€™t be going the â€œminiâ€ route myself, I might try out the metallic trend as I pick up a dress or two for the upcoming wedding season.

GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 7: Bright & Bold
Iâ€™m not going to lie. This look of Gwyneth Paltrowâ€™s surprised me for its simplicity. And how normal it is. According to Gwyneth, this look is for â€œcasual weekends, city walks and the school run,â€ aka everyday life.
Hereâ€™s how to get the GOOP Bright and Bold Look for Less:
Striped Cardigan â€“ J.Crew Factory Store â€“ $31.50 // Yellow Tee â€“ The Limited â€“ $26.90 // Boyfriend Jeans â€“ Gap â€“ $69.95 // Canvas Tennis Shoe â€“ Superga â€“ $69.95 // Envelope Crossbody â€“ Forever21 â€“ $19.80
GOOP NET-A-PORTER Look 8: Silk for Slouching
This is the look where Gwyneth lost me. (By the way, in my mind I am now calling GP â€œGwynnie.â€ Iâ€™ve been staring at her for so long today that I feel like we are on a first name/ nickname basis.) Silk pants + designer sneakers + jewelry for â€œslouchingâ€? No way. Weekends are for relaxing and not caring how you look. Therefore, this is perhaps the most drastic GOOP edit of all. Relaxing and being comfortable shouldnâ€™t cost a fortune.
