Just as all the red carpet talk winds down, here I am bringing it up again! But before I begin, if you haven’t read my 2015 Oscars Best Dressed commentary, head on over there so that everything below will make sense. While it is not realistic for many of us to own a Versace or Ralph & Russo gown, never mind have an occasion to wear such an extravagant piece, it doesn’t mean we cannot incorporate some of the key features and styles into our everyday garb.
Steamy slits and lace are in and Rosamund Pike can justify this. Even if you do not have a formal occasion on your calendar as of yet, it is worth purchasing this hot number for only $57 (extra 15% off with coupon code below!). This fitted dress is comprised of two layers – one that is short and one lace maxi overlay. Although the neckline is modest, the thigh-high slit sure isn’t! Pair this beauty with some nude pump and stun every time you wear it.
Pale pink is becoming a staple and it is not just for spring anymore. From pink sequined leggings, to pink jackets, to pink dresses, it is everywhere. Gwyneth Paltrow showed us how to rock it in her gorgeous gown last Sunday night. Check out this pretty pink jumpsuit, featuring a “mock collar,” cutouts at the waist and back, and wide leg pants. Perfect for date night or an evening with the gals, add this item to your wardrobe wishlist.
More drama, the better. Whether that may be over-sized sashes, or decorative flowers, dare to be bold. This off-the-shoulder black top will help you accomplish just that. With an exaggerated pleated ruffle around the neckline you will get noticed. Wear this fun top with some black leather pants, or lighten the mood in white denim bottoms.
Speaking of drama, how about statement necklaces?! Scarlett Johansson took a simple emerald green dress to a whole new level by incorporating an eye-catching choker into the mix. You can never have enough necklaces for that reason alone. Have a look at this one from Baublebar. Throw it on over a t-shirt, slip on a blazer and jeans, and you’re good to go. Fore more about flashy necklaces, read My post, “Put A Bib In It.”
Finally, you can never go wrong with old-fashioned black and white. Reese Witherspoon reminded us of this, looking classy as ever in her black and white Tom Ford gown. How cute is this box-pleated plaid skirt?! I love it with a black crop top, but a fitted off-the-shoulder top would look pretty stellar as well. The choice is yours.
