The Look For Less

Jenna Lyons, Creative Director for J. Crew, at a Met Gala
J. Crew Sweater and Bridal Skirt

I came across this photo of Jenna Lyons (the force behind J. Crew) and I literally died.This, to me, is the ultimate picture of style and class. I love the idea of putting something so casual with something so glamorous. Lyons is absolutely the master of this look. I so needed to find a more affordable option. Glamour Magazine suggested Lulu’s, so I started there.

Pretty Plies Ivory Tulle Skirt $43

While it’s not floor length, it is more suitable for the average girl’s lifestyle (how many of us ever really go to galas?). I love tulle and it has almost the same effect.

Cashmere Blend Double V-neck Sweater $59.95

There are so many affordable v-neck sweaters out there. This is just one (of many) examples.

Poppy King For J. Crew Lipstick $18

And of course, you have to have the perfect shade of red lipstick!

In total, this look would cost $121. If she is wearing the Cashmere V-neck sweater from J. Crew, that alone is over $200. And I can only imagine how much the skirt is!

As long as I was on the Lulu’s website, I decided to see what else they had to offer. These are my favorites.

BB Dakota Fuzzy Black Jacket $57

Old Hollywood Animal Print Jacket $56

Gamma Ray Copper Sequin Top $56

Mink Pink Double Agent Faux Fur Jacket $135

Moves Like Jagger Red Jeggings $40

Lamixx Dolman Black Sweater $51

Matiko Emery Black High Tech Platform Combat Boot $229

Lulu’s does seem geared more toward the “juniors” crowd, but there are definitely some great pieces for everyone. Happy shopping!
