4 Beautiful Work Outfits Inspired by Red Carpet Looks
It’s easy to get swept away in a fashion fantasy each year when the Golden Globes and Academy Awards are on. What’s not easy, though, is figuring out how to strut your stuff in similar styles without seeming ‘overdone’ for your normal life which, unfortunately, doesn’t take place on a red carpet!
Never fear, Oak Street offers a variety of gorgeous fashion that will allow you to channel your favorite celebs’ red carpet gowns with a few terrific touches that are all your own.
- Gwen Stefani’s Jean Paul Gaultier gown at the 2004 Golden Globe Awards
Wanna mix things up with a mod look like Gwen’s? Armani has got you covered with the Mid-Calf Length Dress in Wool and Silk. It isn’t a turtleneck by any means, but its sleek silhouette, cap sleeves, and waist detailing are all great contemporary ways to channel Gwen’s gown.
Pair the dress with metallic shoes just like she did, but with closed toes to make the look appropriate for the office. Jimmy Choo’s Anouk Light Gold Embossed Mirror Leather
Pointy Toe Pumps serve the purpose perfectly! Finish off with a killer brow and lip
combo made easy with the Sara Rose on Oak VA Yourself Essentials Subscription Package. Just be sure you opt for the Love Thyself classic red lipstick while checking out!
- Emma Stone’s Pretty-in-Peach Calvin Klein gown at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards
A soft shade like that of Emma’s dramatic dress can be made more appropriate for the office with a bit of color blocking and simple structure. Try combining Escada’s Dress Dacking with a pair of Christian Louboutin Senora T-Strap Pumps and Kate Spade’s Madison Ave. Catch a Spark Long Scatter Necklace. Finish with a soft makeup look, and you’ll look even
lovelier than Emma!
- Jennifer Garner’s Eye-catching Ebony Jumpsuit at the 5th Annual Thirst Gala in Beverly Hills
Garner’s jumper proves gowns aren’t the only way to go when you need to look chic. You can steal her style with the Elodie Sleeveless Jumpsuit from Scoop NYC paired with Jimmy Choo’s Deckle Black Nappy Suede and Patent Sandals. The Elodie Jumpsuit doesn’t have a keyhole detail like Jennifer’s does, but you can still channel the same style with simple but stunning diamond accents like the Harry Winston Sunflower Small Post Earrings, Small Diamond Bracelet, and Rondelle Diamond Necklace.
Don’t forget to finish the look with a fun polish like Garner’s to lighten things up. You may find that Trust Fund Beauty’s Money Buys Happiness from Sara Rose on Oak is an especially motivating shade to wear at work.
- Sarah Michelle Geller’s Monique Lhullier Gown at the 2012 Golden Globes
Either you loved it or hated it, but Sarah was proud to sport something chosen by her then-two-years-old daughter at the 2012 Golden Globes and she stood out, if nothing else. You can put a similar pop of color into your work wardrobe with the Dusk Clouds A-Line Skirt from Kate Spade, the Light Blue Tattersall Check Shirt from Paul Stuart ($247) and Jimmy Choo’s Tish Violet Suede Pointy Toe Pumps with Tonal Heel. Add an extra sparkle to your new, eye-catching work attire by tucking the Alexis Bittar Blueberry Marquis Multi Strand Necklace with 18K gold Marquis under your collar.
You may not strut a star-studded red carpet in your day-to-day, but you can certainly borrow a little star style the next time you’re on Oak Street. And with these gorgeous looks, who knows – you may just fool a few paparazzi into thinking you’re famous.
