The best Golden Globes inspired fashions trends on a budget29 January 2019
When the contents of your wardrobe are beginning to feel like yesterday’s news, it’s time to get some serious fashion inspiration straight from the top. The glitz and glamour of the Golden Globes may be ostensibly about recognising excellence in film and TV, but for the fashionistas among us, it’s all about who’s wearing what and whether we can find a wallet-friendly version to give our ensembles new life. Whether you prefer a fun, flirty or fierce look, here’s how you can experiment with the best Golden Globes inspired fashion trends on a budget. We’ll have you looking like a celeb before you know it…
From the chic tie adorning Nicole Kidman’s elegant updo and complementing her skin-tight Michael Kors gown, to the statement ribbon perched on the shoulder of Danai Gurira’s bold
Rodarte dress, bows were the accessory du jour at this year’s awards. Explore the playful budget bows in the ASOS accessories collection and you could add a touch of sweetness to an otherwise sophisticated look at a discount rate. Or shop at Zara for a timeless pussy bow blouse in chiffon or satin to take your look from the boardroom to the bar.
If turning into an icicle just isn’t an option but you’d prefer not to cover up your look with a heavy winter coat, take a leaf from the book of the stars and don an elegant cape instead. Rosamund Pike spiced up her classy yet edgy Givenchy gown with an effortlessly cool metallic number while Debra Messing’s ultra-long feather cape was the epitome of old-school Hollywood charm. Make this statement item work for you with a Debenhams discount buy and choose from checked cosy capes to keep you toasty all day or faux fur numbers to add glamour to your nights.
When lingerie details are so beautiful that you need to show them off to the world, why not turn your underwear into outwear a la Kiki Layne’s gauzy pink Dior affair and Constance Wu’s nude princess gown? Turn some heads this Saturday night wearing a dress with a boned corset or slip on a sheer top with a shimmery bandeau beneath to rock this trend in real life. Scroll through the Topshop range of strapless tops in an assortment of fits and fabrics or browse the party dresses at Missguided and Miss Selfridge for slips, lace and corset details galore.
And for the man in your life...
Finally, if it’s time for the man in your life to update his tired old suit, take inspiration from Dave Franco, Sterling K. Brown and Richard Madden who made it very clear that velvet is the new black. Treat him to a super-soft velvet blazer bargain from Burton, so he can dress it up or down depending on his mood.
