Feeling Miu Miu’s springtime theme of youthful rock-a-billy chic, but also feeling guilty at the prospect of spending over $2K on a gingham mini-dress? I’m in love with the ultra-girly silk-taffeta look, too – especially now that I’ve seen Kelly’s take on two totally different ways to wear it – but I’m also considering more economic avenues for achieving my hot hoedown look. Who says there are rules when it comes to gingham? Not Miu Miu!
Enter their cheeky clip-on earrings. All of the country-carnival flash for a fraction of the cash. Fresh and picnic-perfect blue-and-white gingham has been framed with plexiglass crystals for the most playful jewels I’ve seen in ages. Keep your makeup light – go for just a swipe of lipstick and little else – and your other accessories even lighter. You don’t want to look like you got left on the hayride a bit too long! On Net-a-Porter for $230.
Pair with: These may make you feel like a little girl playing dress up, but you don’t want to look like it. Show that you’re just toying around with Sergio Rossi’s canvas-tweed pumps. Scalding-hot orange poses a nice contrast to down-home blue checks. At Barneys New York for $650.
