Celebrity Look 4 Less: Jayma Mays as Emma Pillbury on Glee

A reader recently requested that I feature some looks 4 less of the character Emma on Glee, played by actress Jayma Mays. Emma is known for her colorful and vintage inspired ladylike look, and I tried to recreate it the best I could! I am planning another feature for her again very soon, but this look was featured in the episode "The Rhodes Not Taken". (Photo credit) She's wearing the Nanette Lepore Tea Party cardigan for those who were wondering, but I don't think it's available online anymore.

Although the entire outfit isn't visible, I was able to find a similar green sweater (although this one has slightly different detailing) for those on a budget. This sweater is currently on sale for $11.98 and you can click on the photo below if you're interested in purchasing (it's almost sold out, so I included two other options in the widget at the bottom of the post).

New York & Co. at ShopStyle

Also, the character Emma frequently wears her cardigans with vintage sweater guards (as seen in the photo above), and I found this similar version that retails for $10 (click here to purchase). Only one is available, but there are several pages of other options on Etsy, you just have to search a little.

Don't forget to get the other options that will help you get an Emma inspired look on a budget...a white blouse, black pencil skirt, and some Mary Janes (which she wears pretty frequently, although her shoes aren't shown in the photo). I also included some sweater alternatives, and some cute earrings that look like something Emma would wear! Click on any photo below to purchase.

I love her outfit - she wears a lot of Anthro!
Any idea where her cardigan is from? I love the bows!

Kim - It's the Nanette Lepore Tea Party cardigan, although I don't think it's available anymore (maybe on Ebay?!).

love it! I love those Nine West Mary Janes. Kelly green is my favorite color. I have it on my spring wish list to get a cardigan in that color! Thanks for the choices! :)

Great post! She has a very distinctive style on the show, so retro and ladylike, I loved her wedding look :) I LOVE green cardigans and have been searching for one. This was an extra fab post for me :)

I just did a major closet overhaul and bought a ton of clothes that are Emma-inspired. I featured them on my blog, Newport-News has a lot of Emma-type clothes- they have pencil skirts, tie-neck tops, etc.

Thanks for doing this feature!!
