On Monday night, the Met Gala was the star-studded event of the night. The next day, starlettes attended the Bronx Children’s Museum Gala at NYC’s Edison Ballroom. For the night, Kerry Washington smoldered in a short and sexy David Koma studded mini-dress.
The sweet silhouette complimented the rough, moto-vibes of the dress, and the sleeveless cuts made it perfect for warm spring days. While Kerry’s dress is designer, there are more than enough ways to recreate or nuance her look on a multitude of budgets. But still, we just absolutely love Kerry, style and beauty.
If you’re searching for a bandage-style dress, but still want to keep that studded vibe, this $32 Fashion Nova dress not only offers stretch, but is easy on the pockets. If you’ve got a few more dollars to spend and want something with more coverage, Missguided’s black-studded dress still only is around $100. In the same price bracket is this $108 long sleeve studded asymmetric black dress, which gives total military-inspiration and is great for a night out. If you are plus-size, you can get in on this trend, too! Forever 21 has a super cute (and affordable) sheer studded dress for only $38.
No outfit is complete without the best shoes for the night. If you’re tightly strapped for cash, you can rock out these $25 metallic-strap heels from Charlotte Russe, which is a huge steal. If you want to put a few more dollars to it and want a heel that’s a bit ritzier, you can rock these $60 asymmetrical heels that have slender straps with a tapered stiletto. And if you’ve truly got the funds to ball out, you might as well go designer with a pair of $845 Giuseppe Zanotti silver stilettos, sure to make a statement. Also, there is always the option to play with the studded trend on your accessories, vs. your main outfit. Opt for a little black dress and pair the look with these $1,095 Valentino ‘Garavani The Rockstud‘ leather pumps.
We love to see how Washington dressed up the moto style for a night out on the town and now you can too whether you want to splurge, spend, or save.
