Oscars '15 Inspired Looks for Less
The Academy Awards tend to bring out the Fashionista in all of us! We couldn’t help but be inspired by the fashion that lit up the small screen Sunday night. While it would be amazing to afford all of that gorgeous couture, we have a more budget friendly take on some of the lovely looks from the Red Carpet. Check out the trends we translated into affordable footwear! Here’s our take on the Oscars 2015 Inspired Looks for Less:
The classic lines of this two-toned gown inspired our pick of these strappy sandals from Jessica Simpson. The Maselli heels feature a slim stiletto and ankle strap with dainty buckle closure. The black and white look can dress up any outfit and can go from day to night.
How many words that start with S can be used to describe our thoughts on this look? Let’s try: steamy, seductive, smoking hot, sexy, spicy, striking, sultry, and the list can go on and on! TheSteve Madden Artist stilettos bring all that sex appeal to your feet with details that include a pointed toe, high platform, snakeskin print and sky high heel. A perfect choice when you need that extra oomph.
Sometimes you have to take a step outside of your color comfort zone and the Naughty MonkeyNola will help to take you there. We love the pop of glitter on the soles of these stunning pumps. While chartreuse is gorgeous, we feel that olive is a little easier to pull off on an everyday look.
This red hot dress with the sexy side slit and metallic strap details reminded us of the Steve Madden Mayven stilettos. Looking classic in the front with a simple open toe but a little naughty on the side with a twisty lock that subtly makes us think of Christian Grey in all his many shades!
This dazzling dress worn by JLo reminded us of these playful platforms by Naughty Monkey. The Gingerbread sandals feature similar beaded detailing on the heel and platform, and the texture of the woven and smooth straps symbolize the flowy layers in the gown. The curve shaped heel adds even more glam to the architecture of these stunning sandals.
Meryl took somewhat of a fashion gamble with her Oscar’s night ensemble, but it paid off because she hit the jackpot! The mix of masculine and feminine details were perfectly balanced. The buckle on her belt motivated our pick of the Xfoliate wedges from Steve Madden. These super tall wedges will elevate your look without overpowering it. These solid black sandals feature classic open toe with criss cross straps and double buckle closure for adjustable fit.
Hands down, the most talked about gown of the night was worn by Marion Cotillard. While it was a risky move, it definitely made an impression. You can stand out too with these stylish pumps from Steve Madden. The Grommit stilettos feature a pointy toe, all over metallic grommet detailing, and slim heel. These trendy shoes will up your fashion game for sure. Pair this pair with a spaghetti strap dress, pencil skirt or skinny jeans.
One of the more playful looks of the evening was worn by Chloe Grace. This youthful selection can be replicated with one of our favorite wedge sandals by Naughty Monkey. The Gold Member heels feature similar golden straps and dainty floral details. The platform and wedge are embellished with sequins to add even more charm. Add these fun and flirty heels to any spring time frock!
