Talk about dodging a bullet. While the Internet was bashing the #AaliyahMovie, Zendaya Coleman, who backed out of the lead role, was shining on the red carpet at the 2014 Nickelodeon Halo Awards. The beauty wore a black and white printed crop top and skirt, a leather jacket and black pumps. She finished the look with Old Hollywood waves and red lipstick.
Zendaya proves that crop top and skirt sets don’t always have to be casual. By pairing it with the right accessories, you can actually make it dressy and formal enough to wear to a holiday party or even a gala. Skeptical? Check out these three options I’ve found online.
Dress up a Nasty Gal set with a NLY faux fur coat, Christian Louboutin pumps and a Roberto Cavalli bag. Add the finishing touches with a Stella & Dot cuff, a Valentino phone case, and Make Up For Ever eyeshadow.
Layer a Topshop jacket over a Fame & Partners set. Complete your look with Christian Louboutin pumps, an alice + olivia bag, a Lulu Guinness wallet, NARS nail polish, a Chanel-inspired phone case and Barry M lipstick.
