A princess doesn’t have to be saccharine-vanilla . Even if you’re not a girly-girl, you can add a sprinkle of fairy dust to your look by choosing only one key princessy piece. You’d be surprised how effective a little bling or a little ribbon accent can do to your ensemble, be it tough, athletic, gothic, preppy.
So while everybody’s going gaga over Beauty and the Beast, here are 5 chic pieces you can get inspiration from, or actually wear (in public).
1. Rose-embroidered Christopher Kane heel
To offset the romantic ribbon accent, wear this with boyfriend jeans that cut just-above-the-ankle. Get it here.
2. Embellished Juicy Couture jacket
Throw on this happy bomber jacket to instantly upgrade your neutral ensemble. We recommend a body-hugging dress underneath. Get it here.
3. Swarovski open ring
Brooches are a classic accessory to gowns and dresses. Pin this to your structured blazer for maximum effect. Get it here.
4. Carolina Herrera velvet open-back gown in navy
Now this is a dress you can actually wear to that special birthday dinner or gala. The fabric follows you around gracefully (no ball gowns, please!) and the wispy bow cape is effortlessly romantic. Get it here.
5. Judith Leiber book bag
This gilded bag might seem too much at first glance, but pair it with jeans or an athletic bomber jacket or even white sneakers, and it shines like it’s supposed to! It’s steep at over $5,000, but you can get it here.
