Splurge or Save, the Golden Globes Edition: Translating an Evening Trend into a Daytime Staple

Image

One of my favorite trends at the Golden Globes last weekend was the color red, worn by some veteran, big and small screen fashionistas, and also a few newer ones. Seeing Lupita Nyong’o float across the red carpet in a cherry Ralph Lauren off-the-shoulder cape dress made my heart flutter, and Emma Watson’s backless dress-and-pants combo by Dior was unbearably chic and effortless looking. While Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen often flies under the best-dressed radar, her two-toned Carolina Herrera gown with uber-luxe velvet belt was the epitome of elegance and made me just as excited as it did when I saw it on the runway last year.

If seeing all those crimson dresses at the Golden Globes made you want to paint the town red too, I’ve got you covered. Below are two, nearly identical dresses that will help you translate the stars’ spicy evening look into a daytime staple.

Will you splurge, or will you save?
