Steal the Look for Less: Dolce & Gabbana Star Prints

Okay a couple of weeks ago I directed you on where to get the Dolce & Gabbana Star pumps for less (which you can read here) but today is all about how to recreate the whole Dolce look.

Belle of the Ball






Dolce and Gabbana Stars


Deep v neck dress, $78
Heel pumps
Tote handbag, $56


Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana created these ridiculously beautiful chiffon flowy star gowns (which will run you $4,975 at net-a-porter.com). These dresses are jaw dropping, heart stopping beautiful dresses but for the average gal we don't have this type of money laying around. Thankfully Nasty Gal has this very pretty sexified star dress, the Fall Star Dress ($78). It has sex appeal like the Dolce & Gabbana dress -- Dolce is sheer while Nasty Gal has an asymmetrical cut allowing to show some thigh also the cut creates a flowy effect. To finish off the look pair it up with a simple black pump and a little purple bag like the one from Romwe.com ($56).


Street Star





Dolce & Gabbana Yellow Dress


TopShop three quarter sleeve dress, $110
Charnos opaque hosiery, £5
Forever21 pointed shoes, $23
ASOS envelope clutch bag, $36


The one thing I truly liked about this collection was the mix of differences within the collection -- you got the street style look, the tomboy, work ready, and the belle of the ball in the whole collection. Yet it appeals to the same woman. The street ready wear is defientially the play on bolder colors and bigger stars. To recreate this look go for a dress that isn't just black with white stars try a bolder color and go with bigger stars like the Topshop Star Pleated Dress ($110). Stick with simple black loafers and black ankle socks which will help give it the street style look. Make the whole look pop with a bright clutch bag like the ASOS Pyramid Lock Envelop Clutch ($36).

Shine at Work




Dolce and Gabban Stars top and glitter skirt


T shirt, £20
Gold sequin skirt, $45
Charnos nylon socks, £5
ALDO platform high heels, $100
French Connection crossbody handbag, $110
ASOS star earrings, $18
 

No literally shine at work. Go from day to night in a sequin skirt without looking like your going straight to the club by doing a sequin pencil skirt like Dolce & Gabanna. Finding a sequin star skirt is hard enough so just try a sequin pencil skirt like the Lulu's Hide and Go Seek Sequin Skirt ($45). Pair your skirt with a star button down like the Clothing at Tesco's Star Chiffon Shirt ($32) to give it a day appropriate look. Pair the whole look up with a simple studded bag and star print heels (the Aldo shoes make a come back!). Play with fun accessories like the ASOS Cascading Star Earrings ($18).

What do you guys think of the star trend? Are you going wear it?
