It’s time to glam it up for tonight’s must-watch award show. We’ve got easy ways to channel the red carpet, without doling out a fortune. Try one or rock ’em all—either way, you’re gonna look like an A-lister at whatever soiree you hit up!
Start with a bold frock.
This red number is dramatic and totally on trend (one shoulder, plenty of ruffles). Wear it with a bunch of bangles, like the model here, or sport it with a tiny belt. Bonus: This dress works with hair that’s up or down.
Add some killer shoes.
Or, in this case, a pair of shooties (aka, a cool shoe/boot mash-up that leaves ya with a sandal that’s tougher than your average strappy). We dig this pair ’cause they’ll look gorge long after the last golden trophy is doled out this evening.
Pile on the jewels.
We especially like cocktail rings when you’re tryin’ to make like Hollywood’s hottest. They add a bit of shine, without taking away from the rest of your ensemble.
Rock a dark mani.
We’ve been watching the red carpets for ages. And while trendy nails are fun (hello, glitter and pastels), sometimes chic noir tips say it all.
Grip a glittery bag.
Now that your nails are super-dark, they’ll stand out against a sparkler of a clutch. This converts into a cross-body bag, too, so you can sport it on a standard Friday night as well.
Apply smoky liner.
Even if ya don’t have an all-access pass to a makeup artist, smudging on some black liner makes your look a bit flirty. We heart that this one is waterproof. You know, for when you’re tearing up during your acceptance speech. Wink!
