The leaves on the trees may be changing from their summertime green to their autumnal reds, oranges and yellows, but a certain stylish lady wasn’t ready to trade in her bright green frock for more seasonal colors just yet. We’re looking at you, Amal Clooney.
According to The Huffington Post, Mrs. Clooney was spotted out in New York City on Sept. 29 with husband George to attend the 15th anniversary screening of Clooney’s “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” InStyle says that Clooney wore a green Versace cocktail dress, which she paired with black and green Jimmy Choo sandals and bold statement earrings.
Clooney’s end-of-summer style certainly caught our eye, but so did its price tag. Her dress, the Versace Pleated Dress, is currently available at Farfetch.com for a lofty $2,045 — and that’s not even considering her Jimmy Choo sandals, which have similar styles originally priced at $800 on Tradesy.com. With Clooney’s NYC-night-out look coming in at around $2,845, we set out to recreate her entire look for less than $200. Read on for the results!
Finding a frock in an equally bright, cheerful shade of green was no easy task, but we finally landed on the Springs to Mind Dress from ModCloth. Not only is this sweet dress done in a similar shade of green, it also features a similar construction with a fuller skirt and fitted bodice. This dress, however, won’t set you back $2,045, as it’s available for only $54.99.
Nothing can compare to Clooney’s two-tone Jimmy Choo sandals, but we thought the N.Y.L.A. Mercutio Sandal from DSW came in a close second. Although this sandal features a more cage-like foot design, its strap pattern is reminiscent of Clooney’s heels. The best part — these sandals will complete your Clooney-inspired look for less for only $49.95.
Amal Clooney’s all-over green ensemble made us green with envy, but we certainly didn’t envy its $2,845 estimated total price.But if you love her look, our recreated outfit will give imitate her chic style for only $104.94.
