Academy Awards season brings both criticism and praise for the stars who step out in style. The year of 2011 in awards shows has been no different—from the SAG awards showcasing Tina Fey’s jaw-dropping red gown to January Jones’s Old Hollywood-style dress—this season’s fashion is both vibrant and sophisticated. So how can you get red carpet glam style for less? Here are a few tricks of the trade taken from our favorite fashionistas, of course!
We loved that Louise Roe paired Miche Bag’s Clutch Wallet with a one-shouldered Tadashi Shoji dress and the ultimate foot candy, Jimmy Choo shoes, on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. Her Miche Bag Clutch was a classy, sophisticated touch of both glamour and poise. Take it from the celebs on the red carpet: always have a chic Miche Clutch on hand—it will take your outfit to an entirely new level!
2. Rock a Bright Color
Take a cue from Angelina Jolie’s eye-popping emerald green gown at the 2011 Golden Globes: Color is in! Don’t be afraid to break out of your regular routine by wearing a fun, bright color this season. The Miche February release Brynn Shell is a great way to show a quick splash of bright blue, while the pink Big Bag Cassie Shell is fun, flirty and totally fashion-forward!
3. Add a Touch of Metallic
Anne Hathaway’s full-length, glittery Armani gown at the 2011 Golden Globes scored major fashionista points with us! To replicate this classic feel, keep things simple—don’t overdo any element of an outfit, especially if you’re incorporating glitter or metallic! The straightforward, metallic Big Bag Natasha Shell is a great way to draw some attention to your outfit without overdoing it.
Bottom Line: you don’t have to be a millionaire to score huge fashion points! There are tons of ways to replicate a chic look for less. Just remember to keep things simple; and, of course, you can’t go wrong with a Miche Bag—it’s the ultimate accessory to any fashion-forward outfit.
