Mirroring Meryl’s Oscars Outfit

Get Meryl’s Oscar look for a LOT less.

While there were a number of striking gowns on show at this year’s Oscars awards, only one was infinitely wearable. Meryl Streep may not have worn the flashiest ensemble on the night, however, she still managed to look stunning without showing too much skin. So what worked? The dress was flattering and fell beautifully. It was also age appropriate and used block colour to draw attention to her face.

While Meryl’s outfit seems to be a dress, you could easily recreate this look with a top and skirt. I’m a huge fan of top and skirt ensembles as it allows you to wear the separates again with other outfits. While full length formal dresses are beautiful, the downside is you often end up wearing them once before they spend the rest of their lives crammed in the back of your wardrobe.

A perfect outfit to try for your next formal evening out, get the look for a LOT less with my picks below.
