Apparently, the cure for the Monday blues is whiskey — on Monday, July 13, the product launch of Bonnie Rose White Whiskey took place in Nashville, Tennessee, attracting a crop of celebrities to launch party. And not only was the launch filled with alcohol and A-listers, it was also filled with tremendous fashion.
Among those in attendance was actress Nikki Reed, who graced the launch in a Sachin & Babi mesh paneled dress and white pointy-toe pumps.
Reed’s gorgeous mesh frock, the Convergence dress from Sachin & Babi, is currently sold out on the Sachin & Babi website, but originally sold for $395. However, if you are in the market for a mesh paneled dress like Reed’s look, THL found three great dresses to recreate her look for a fraction of the cost — and we didn’t forget to find the perfect white pump to pair it with!
Tobi’s Shape Shifter Mini Dress in black and white delivers a similar plunging neckline as Reed’s Sachin & Babi number, but it comes in an easy-to-wear shift dress style. This dress also features black piping at the waistline, reminiscent of the waist-cinching details on Reed’s dress. On sale for only $36, this shift dress is an easy way to imitate Reed’s style without breaking the bank.
If you want to show even more skin, try out the Bless’ed Are the Meek Fine Lines Dress, also from Tobi.com. Cut in a modified skater style, this dress offers a universally flattering silhouette while incorporating sexy, skin-baring mesh panels on the bodice and back similar to those on Reed’s dress. This all-white mesh number is currently on sale at Tobi.com for $99.
To get a more subtle, yet sexy mesh paneled look, try the Contrast Mesh Inset Sleeveless Sheath Dress from Express. This dress features a fitted silhouette similar to Reed’s dress with more opaque mesh panels at the shoulder and waist that extend onto the back of the dress. Available for $69.90 at Express.com, this dress is the perfect way to test drive the mesh trend in a minimal way without spending too much.
Our Nikki Reed look-alike outfit isn’t complete without the perfect white pointy-toe pump, and that’s where the Aldo Wadosen Pump comes in. This patent leather, two-piece style is the perfect way to finish off your look for less, coming in at $59.95 at DSW.com.
Nikki Reed’s Sachin & Babi mesh dress cost $395, while THL’s three reimagined looks don’t top $160. Although you may not be going to a star-studded product launch anytime soon, there’s no reason why you can’t get dressed up in one of these great mesh paneled dresses and head to your favorite bar or restaurant for a fun and fashionable night out!
