I’ve got to give it to the Kardashian sisters, and especially their stylist Monica Rose, because these ladies really know how to mix high and low end pieces which not only make memorable ensembles, but also make them accessible for us to wear. When I first saw this picture of Khloe Kardashian out for a night on the town I just knew this would be the perfect way to start off our ‘Pretty Penny’ column. The little black dress is essential to even the most eclectic of wardrobes not only because it’s timeless, but more so because it’s so versatile.
I’ve scoured the internet and found the necessary items so that you can achieve Khloe’s effortless play on the little black dress. For starters she pairs her little black dress with a leather jacket I know you’ll be able to afford. The studded leather motorcycle jacket from H&M’s Fall 2009 collection and has a price tag of only $179 USD. After searching for months for a affordable version of a leather motorcycle jacket I can attest to the fact that this price is great for real leather.
To complete the outfit I’ve found a simple strapless black dress from affordable retailer Forever XXI for only $22.80. Aside from the leather jacket, the accessories really help take this ensemble to another level, so from Forever I also found the jewelry, a simple drape chain necklace for $5.80, stud earrings that come in a set of 5 for $4.80, and a double frame oval ring for only $6.80. To finish everything off I chose a faux croc clutch courtesy of Fred Flare, which will only cost you $24.00, Sephora Multi Action nail polish (the Red Light color) for $8.00, and finally Aldo’s Parrin pump for $100.00.
So ladies, next time you have a night on the town with friends or a significant other, remember that little black dress you have in your closet. It’s timeless for a reason!
