Look For Less: Scarlett Johansson

The Dolce and Gabbana blouse worn here by Johansson will cost you $650 alone, but this recreation will help you achieve the same look for $148! Let's review the key elements of this outfit, so you can recreate one that suits you! [1] The print of the blouse is really important because it breaks the solid block of color from the skirt; however, the print you choose should be a mild one, like the Charlotte Russe version I chose. [2] The fit of the skirt is the most essential part of the outfit. The top band of the skirt should fit around the smallest part of your waist, and the length should end right at your knee caps. If your skirt is longer than this it will make you look stumpy! Check out my pick from Spiegal! [3] The key to the shoe is the color. To achieve Johansson's look you want to pick a shoe that is in the same warm color family as the skirt, but has enough contrast. My pick is from Chinese Laundry, and has some black detailing to compliment the Jessica McClintock clutch! [4] The red lipstick is the "pop" of this outfit. Everything else is pretty warm and mild, so the red lipstick will really brighten up your overall look. If you are tanner or more olive skinned than Johansson, go for berry tones that have a pink undertone. My choice is by Maybelline, and I chose this one because of its moisture component =) Make sure you don't let the lipstick get on your teeth!
