Take Her Look [For Less]

There was a party down under, and celebrities turned out in high style to mark the occasion. On Oct. 29, the H&M Sydney Flagship store held a VIP party in Sydney, Australia, and showing up in one of the most eye-catching looks of the night was Solange Knowles.

Wearing nothing but an oversized blazer that served as her dress, InStyle says Knowles paired her risqué look with black Schutz cage heels and a sparkly black frame clutch. She capped off her look with a slick of bright orange eyeliner and voluminous locks.

We loved Solange Knowles’ daring night-out look, but her Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals alone cost $190. So we set out to recreate her entire outfit for less than $190 — that’s a dress, shoes and clutch for under the cost of her shoes. Read on for the results!

It was surprisingly easy to find a dress similar to Knowles’ oversized blazer look, and we found the perfect look-alike piece in the form of the Long Sleeve Tux Dress from Missguided. This dress’s double-breasted design, gold buttons and satiny lapel invoke Knowles’ frock and deliver a strikingly similar silhouette for only $68.

A dress like this calls for a fabulous shoe, and there is no better shoe for the job than the Zigi Soho Duran Bootie from DSW. Featuring a similar cage design, this shoe offers an extra bit of shine with its tiny rhinestone embellishment. For only $79.95, these shoes come in well under Knowles’ $190 Schutz style, but are just as fashionable.

Finishing off our look for less is the Lulu Townsend Noelle Clutch from DSW, which features a sparkly netted pattern reminiscent of Knowles’ clutch. This frame clutch will complete your look-alike ensemble for only $34.95.

Although Solange Knowles’ H&M VIP party look consisted of shoes that cost $190, we were able to recreate her entire look from head to toe for only $182.90. Add some bold orange eyeliner, and you’ll be ready for any VIP event!

Happy Shopping!
