Frugal Fashion: Rachel Zoe takes her '70s vibe to the Hamptons
Rachel Zoe seems to don a different career hat for each day of the week -- Philip Treacy designs or vintage turbans, of course. She's taking the fashion world by storm with her new clothing line and her show "The Rachel Zoe Project," premieres its fourth season Sept. 6 on Bravo.
The stylist-turned-designer made a recent New York appearance at the 14th annual Super Saturday shopping event to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, hosted by Emma Roberts, Kelly Ripa, Donna Karan and InStyle at Nova's Ark Project. Zoe took her signature '70s vibe and made it Hamptons chic, looking Mah-jor (for those familiar with Zoeisms) in an elegant white lacy kaftan-style maxi dress, a long beaded tassel necklace and oversized rectangular pink tinted glasses.
For a similar care-free look, get a lacy or crocheted dress like the West Coast wardrobe mesh midi dress for $45 from Boutiquetoyou.com, Mirage maxi dress for $65 from Needsupply.com, Lazy Rivers white maxi dress from Lulus.com for $35, Pins and Needles Chantilly dress $89 from Urbanoutfitters.com or the A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz crochet-overlay dress for $92.99 from LordandTaylor.com.
Nothing accessorizes like a swishing tassel. It's fun, flirty and holds its own against a long maxi dress. For some tassel necklaces with a little added embellishment, get the Leatherette chains and necklace for $6.80, beaded necklace with tassel for $11.80, vintage tassel necklace for $5.80, all from Forever21.com or the silk tassel and crystal necklace from Urbanoutfitters.com for $29.
A great pair of oversized shades can be your best friend in so many situations. Lucky for fashionistas on a budget you don't have to spend a couple hundred for a dependable pair. Get the signature Zoe larger-than-life sunglass look with the square or wine sunglasses, both priced at $5.80 from Forever21.com; or the FENY sunshine rhinestone vented rectangular sunglasses from Kohls.com for $16.80.
