[Every week our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble, you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire ensemble. Yes, we know; there is a spot for her in heaven.]
Green. The color of all things great: this lovely planet, money and Starbucks straws.
Oh, and how can I forget fashion?
This season there is no shortage of kelly green. And for good reason; this color looks good on nearly everyone, and totally sets its wearer out from the crowd. From the red carpet to Old Navy, there it is – yet another cute, bright green dress shouting, “BUY ME! You have to have me for summer!!”
I’ve never been good at saying no, especially when something (or someone) so cute is talking to me.
I like to call this little sitch the big green oxymoron. I don’t have any green in my wallet to buy said green dress, but I have to have it. What is one to do? Well, aside from splitting your purchase onto three different credit cards, of course (not that I’m condoning that!).
Thankfully, you don’t have to spend a lot of green to take home the green, and I’m here to bring you these cute green dresses for cheap. You love me. I know.
Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: It’s so easy Being Green!
Green works all day or all night. Here is a great causal option to throw on when you’re late. Add with some gold sandals and out you go!
This dress from Lulus is a great option for going day-to-night. Slip on some metallic sandals for day, then switch it to a black patent, a nude patent or a wedge for night. A black or white belt around the waist would be adorbs (that’s adorable for you non-word-shorteners) too.
This last dress is a little pricier but so. freaking. cute. And great for going out! Those straps add an even more awesome twist on an already hot dress, making this dress totally worth the extra greenbacks. Switch it up a bit and make it your own by replacing that green belt with a black or white patent one. It’s fashion perfection.
Every week, I’ve featured every type of cute black shoe under the sun. Go with any of those, or, if you’re feeling blingy, here are some gold options that go great with green and are just splendid for spring/summer.
The flat is super comfortable without being dowdy, so you can rock it day or night. And that pump! It’s so neutral, so cute and so. on. sale.
