Get the Look: Oscars Everyday

Did you watch the Oscars last night? I watch not because I’m rooting for particular actors or movies, but because I want to find out what movies & documentaries might be worth my time to watch. I don’t really keep up with the latest and greatest movies.

I thought it would be fun to show you some fabulous dresses from the ceremony and how you can use those dresses as inspiration in your everyday outfits. So here are 5 glamorous looks transformed into causal outfits. Click each image to go to the original source.


1. Jessica Chastain in Armani Privé – Pair sequin or beaded pieces with more casual pieces like chambray or jeans for some daytime glamour.

2. Kerry Washington in Miu Miu – Wear gold accessories with coral. They make a beautiful combo.

3. Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji – Tulle skirts are really fun and girly, and they can easily be made less formal when paired with a more casual top.

4. Charlize Theron in Christian Dior – Peplum tops are very trendy right now. A white peplum would look great with a pencil skirt or, for a really casual look, a pair of boyfriend jeans.

5. Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior – Try some light-colored jacquard pieces or a low high skirt for a look that subtly takes inspiration from this embossed, blush-colored, show-stopping gown.
