Step aside white, flowy frocks, it’s been fun but your days of reign are over. Tight, black dresses decked out in studs are now in control, showing up in stores, on runways and even on Kim Kardashian. And the best news of all? You can get this look for less! Thanks to Donatella Versace’s new line for H&M, the look of the season – yes, the look of Kim Kardashian – falls at a cost within our means (finally).
Versace, so excited about her studded piece, wore it down the runway. “For me, this is an opportunity to show a very, very big audience… I like it to be really a surprise for everybody but I was so excited about the fittings with H&M that I decided yesterday to wear one of the H&M outfits that’s going to be sold in November. It was leather and gold studs, very sexy,” she says.
The beauty of these pieces is that they’re already bejeweled. Keeping that in mind, it is important to note that studded clothing requires very little jewelry and simple accessories. Ditch necklaces and long, draping earrings for cool bangles or a nice watch. As for shoes and a coat (because let’s get real, winter’s almost here), we like leather jackets paired with ankle boots, or a blazer matched with pumps. Whatever you do, keep it black. Sleek, straight hair completes the look.
“Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives,” says the H&M’s creative advisor. “This is such a celebratory collaboration and it is perfect for the party season.”
