Style Stealer: Emulate Katy Perry’s Pin-Up Girl Style
Katy Perry, the current queen of several cheeky pop hits has a wardrobe that goes hand in hand with her musical style. The songstress is no stranger to controversy, her first hit had critics labeling her as a bad girl from day one. So, it’s only fitting that her signature sexy wardrobe would leave everyone talking… and staring. With lyrics that make women of all ages want to let their inner party girl out, it’s no surprise she has a style that has everyone wanting to be a “California Gurl”. From her sexy pin-up inspired looks to her barely there shorts – this is one artist who knows how to flaunt her best assets through the use of fashion.
Dying to get your hands on some of her pricey designer duds but can’t afford to drain your bank account? Don’t fret – I have managed to round up some eccentric and moderately priced pieces that will leave you feeling like a star in 2011.
Step one on your road to getting [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm]‘s signature style – a pair of stacked pumps in fuchsia. Not all of us can afford to rock Louboutin’s on our feet but no fear, I have found you the perfect pair of pumps by Pour La Victoire. Added bonus – these sassy satin pumps are currently on sale at Zappos online for only $90.00. Not only are these shoes a steal but they look awfully similar to the ones Miss Perry rocked recently at the 2011 Peoples Choice Awards.
Now that you have the signature shoes you need to get your hands on a mini dress that offers a fun pattern ASAP. When Perry isn’t rocking her onstage booty shorts and under garments she is most likely wearing a funky mini dress. I found a perfect match at Urban Outfitters - not only does it offer a sexy fit but it has an adorable rose embossed pattern… a favorite of Perry’s. At $88.00 the ‘Motel Printed Lesley Dress’ is sure to have heads turning.
Next stop – getting Perry’s signature locks. Perry is constantly changing up her hair and you can too!
I found a great wig at Ricky‘s that isn’t too pricey and will leave you looking like you belong on Russel Brand‘s arm. The wig is priced at $39.99 and the fact that it’s called the ‘Diva Wig’ says it all.
Not up for rocking a wig but still want to emulate Perry’s hairstyle?
I found a floral clip for $14.00 at Urban Outfitters that emulates the ones Perry is often found sporting.
The clip is relatively inexpensive and comes in pink, black, or grey so feel free to switch it up.
What now? It’s time we channel Perry’s somewhat softer side. Our girl Katy is all about the poof and lace when she takes a more sophisticated approach in terms of style.
I found a skirt from American Apparel that replicates the one Katy wore when she hosted the MTV Music Awards in Europe. This multi-layered skirt is somewhat pricey at $70.00 but you will definitely get your moneys worth because its reversible. You can keep it simple by pairing it with a basic top or if you’re feeling ambitious go for a slightly scandalous look with a bustier top. Rawr!
I found the perfect black pleated satin bustier at bebe for $119.00 – it’s a bit pricey but can be paired with plenty of other pieces. Making it the perfect Perry-esque staple for your closet.
Well ladies – the only thing left to do is channel your inner pin-up girl… do Katy proud and let your colors burn!
