One of the best things about the Teen Choice Awards 2011 was the youthful, on-point fashion. No matter how old you are, you can take tips on how to make your current look more modern and vibrant from these three young socialites and starlets.
My favorite look of the night, Blake Lively’s dress is a little bit ’60s secretary glam mixed with modern sex kitten. The look is fresh, fitted, and discreetly va-va-voom without being inappropriate for a teen event. In short: all her bits are covered and she looks pleasingly polished.
This dress from ASOS has that similar wiggle dress vibe, a sassy little black skinny belt (which you can replace with a slimming orange one if you please), and plenty of shocking orange to make you feel totally juicy.
And at only $77, it’s a steal compared to Lively’s Gucci.
We love Lively’s textured leopard print pumps that give her a bangin’ silhouette. These shoes from The Highest Heel are only $59.99 and have virtually the same shape as Lively’s.
A little tribal and a lot glamorous art deco, Lively’s earring give her outfit an ethnic edge. These tribal triangle earrings from Forever 21 are only $5.80 but the will still help you get the same sophisticated point across.
Lively’s bracelets are glitzy, dramatic, and probably pretty expensive. Get a similar look (that matches better with the Forever 21 earrings) with these bangles from Cusp by Neiman Marcus that are only $78.00.
Total For A Blake Lively Worthy Look: $220.79
Can you say stunning bright red lips? Shocking red lips were definitely a trend at the Teen Choice Awards and we liked all the different variations of how they were worn: retro, modern, and edgy.
Actress Holland Roden wore them Poison Ivy meets Jessica Rabbit style with her pretty red hair and flirty green strapless dress.
Yes, we think we found the exact same dress that Roden is wearing on Bluefly for $123 by a designer named Donna Morgan. Such a great deal for the identical dress!
These frilly metallic champagne peep toe pumps from Charles David are leg lengthening and stil fun. Plus, they only run about $38.99.
We love this green bracelet from Ettika with a dainty gold peace sign. At $45, it’s a tad on the spendy side, but as your only piece of jewelry with this outfit, it’s totally worth it.
At $20.69, this gold leather clutch from And Mary has a cutesy bow that plays up the pretty frills in the top of the dress.
The real highlight of this look is the bright red lips. Get the look with Wet ‘N Wild’s Red Velvet lipstick which generally retails for about $1.50. In order to make the color really pop like a more expensive lipstick, cover your lips with concealer and line your lips well with nude lip liner.
Total For A Holland Roden Worthy Look: $229.18
If you’re not into little tiny dresses, get Teen Choice Award’s host, Kaley Cuoco’s glam pants and blazer look.
Shiny, harem: all you really need is a funky statement pant to go with polished basics. I love these ever-so-comfy pink and black patterned harem pants from Miss Sixty at only $85.00.
Dress up the pants with these amazing bblack tuxedo jacket from ASOS at $120.67. It’s expensive for a blazer, but it’s a basic that you can wear with anything from jeans to cut-off shorts to mini-skirts.
At only $27.80, these folded leatherette wedges from Forever 21 are a perfect (and easy to walk in heel) to pair with such wild pants.
A white v-neck tank is not only practical, it’s sexy in a subtle way. We like the flowy drape of this tank from ASOS–and it’s only $20.69.
Wear a big, bold ring to compliment the minimal aspects of everything in the outfit (except for the pants of course.) We like this rhinestone rabbit ring from Forever 21 for it’s slight whimsy. Oh, and it’s price point of only $4.80.
Total For A Kaley Cuoco Worthy Look: $258.96
