Drew Barrymore maintains a relaxed outlook when shopping for clothes.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Drew Barrymore is proud to have nabbed an Isabel Marant jacket for just $200.

The Hollywood star often dazzles on red carpets while promoting her work, most recently wowing in a black jumpsuit at the London premiere of Miss You Already.

Away from the cameras the 40-year-old rocks a relaxed style, but she is proud of some of her designer purchases.

"I don't really spend a lot of money on clothes. I love bargain hunting. I've always liked Topshop, Zara, Gap and I love vintage," she smiled to Britain's Metro newspaper. "I'm so proud I actually have an Isabel Marant jacket that I know is thousands of dollars but I paid $200 for this jacket in a weird thrift store in the French countryside. I was like: 'Do you know what this is? Either way, I'll buy it.'"

Drew doesn't always get it spot on though. The actress cited a green Gucci dress she wore to the 2006 Golden Globes as one of her biggest fashion disasters. She even apologised to the fashion house for "tarnishing" its name after the award ceremony.

"Don't wear a high neck with a belt if you have boobs, that was my lesson," she laughed to Metro.

"I've been red carpet roadkill many a time. I just dress the way I want. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Just wear what makes you comfortable."

Drew has often spoken about her style has changed since becoming a mother too. She has daughter Olive, who turns three on September 26 2015, and 17-month-old daughter Frankie with husband Will Kopelman.

“My real life is extremely down to earth,” she told Britain's The Mirror newspaper recently.

“I’m with my kids in my dirty sweatpants which are stained from something they’ve spilled – it’s ridiculous. I’m really grateful for everything and I don’t assume anything."
