Say what you will about high-end designers designing to create for the working class masses. We love 'em and the accessible luxury they lend to the market. Take wedding gown mega-star Vera Wang's line for Kohl's. Sure, you're not getting the Red Carpet-ready wares sported by Ms. Wang's A-list clientele, but you are getting something infinitely wearable and super chic for a great value. Hey, there's nothing unglamourous about saving a little coin!
With the return of The Tudors upon us and The Other Boleyn Girl gracing silver screens everywhere, it should come as no surprise that opulent jewel tones and cuts reminiscent of the stately court of Henry VIII are all the rage. Simply Vera Wang's Colorblock dress ($52.80, was $88) lets you get into the regal spirit without paying a king's ransom.
This stunning studded dress ($73.50, was $98) is perfect for dressing up or down, depending on your LBD mood. With demure flats and a sheer cardigan, it's an easy, breezy day dress you can wear to work. Add nude fishnets, high black heels and a fabulous chunky bracelet for after-work drinks and beyond.
When you're in a girly mood, jeans just won't do. Swap out your favorite denims for this brushstroke belted dress ($46.80, was $78). Its swingy shape and flattering fit will satisfy your dress-up desires, while the funky pattern and ultimate comfiness won't make you feel too overdressed.
