Katy Perry Gucci Elle Magazine Look For Less

The Breakdown

Gucci is all about color-blocking this season and I was so excited to try the trend when I recreated Camilla Belle’s red carpet look in my Summer Style Series. I think Yakini of Style Me Prissy just took it to the next level with her “Katy Perry on the cover of Elle magazine” Gucci look for less. Wow! She looks amazing! This is a look that is bound to turn heads and it put a huge smile on my face when I saw it!

About her look Yakini wrote, “I took a color scheme similar to the one that Katy Perry wore on the March 2011 cover of Elle and created my own Gucci-inspired summer outfit with linen blazer, sleeveless top, and a gold braided belt recycled from my sister’s “junk” pile. I added an electric blue mini skirt for that pretty pop of blue we see on the Elle cover. I did splurge on getting my thrifted jacket tailored ($10), bringing this Gucci-inspired outfit to a total of $28.50.”

  • Green Blazer – Thrifted $5.99
  • Purple Draped Blouse – T.J. Maxx Clearance $10.00
  • Gold Metallic Belt – Wet Seal
  • Blue Skirt – Thrifted $2.50

    Love it! I’ve been hesitant to try color blocking because it’s not typical of my style to be so colorful all at once lol. But I have a teal dress and a pink/magenta clutch that I want to put together, but I’m struggling on the shoes/accessories that should go with it. I’ve tried black but shoes but that was a no-go, and I’m afraid to introduce a new color into the look. Am I correct in that metallics (esp. gold) would be perfect to top off the look?
