I'm a long-time fan of Cara Delevingnes's runway prowess and her major red carpet style, but do you know what else she's good at (perhaps even best at)? Party style! It makes a lot of sense: She is a socialite after all, and her cool girl, charmingly-IDGAF vibe meshes perfectly with her fashion know-how, for some of the best out-on-the-town looks... well, out on the town. All that considered, I'm a fan of pretty much everything she wears — and I especially loved the ultra-festive look she donned for the recent YSL Love Your Lips Party. I liked the look so much, in fact, I decided to theoretically replicate it — so here's everything you need to learn how to dress like Cara Delevingne!
It's a relatively simple look, with just the right amount of fanciness thrown in. The outfit centers on a fringed mini-dress (though any simple LBD will give you a similar effect), a cool-infused blazer, and some serious platforms (which look way cooler with black tights than I ever thought possible). For the finishing touches, you'll want to layer pendants and chunky statement necklaces like nobody's business — and a glossy, high-impact deep scarlet lip is all but essential. Now, let's break down the outfit into some (affordable, I got you covered) shopping options — but first, here's the look in question:
All Things Fabulous Dress, $84.99, ModCloth
Topshop Croc Tuxedo Blazer, $54.99, Nordstrom
Zodiac Constellation Pendant, $28, BaubleBar
Strut a Heel, $44.99, ModCloth
Melted Lipstick in Velvet, $21, Too Faced
Will you be giving this look a try? If I ever manage to drag myself to a party, I certainly will!
