Get the Look for Less – Elizabeth Banks’ Animal Print Dress, Leather Jacket + More
Short dresses topped by leather jackets are beyond in right now (even though it’s summer and jackets are unnecessary), and super cute actress Elizabeth Banks nailed the trend from every possible angle with her leopard print frock, cropped jacket and quirky Mary Janes, plus a minty-aqua envelope clutch.
We loved the look so much –and spotlighted it here — that we’ve endeavored to recreate it for you, like your own personal shopper.
The whole look revolves around the dress. Rebecca Taylor makes a similar style, like this one, which can be worn to a less formal wedding, a party or a dressier-than-jeans family event.
A fitted and embellished leather jacket pulls the look together and is a piece that begs to be used across seasons and can be mixed with so many styles, so don’t balk at the $168 price tag of this Express version. Remember — cost per wear makes it a steal.
Envelope clutches are so chic, as long as you don’t overstuff them, thus transforming the shape from slim and trim to thick like a brick. This Karmaloop offering is uber trendy and only shrinks your wallet by $38.
The details on Banks’ Mary Janes set them apart and this stylish pair is a close copy.
Bottom line: We’ve assembled this look for $375, which is likely a tiny fraction of what Banks’ original ensemble cost. As an added bonus, all the pieces are timeless options for multiple years of wear.
