AnnaLynne McCord has been spotted channeling old-school glamour with a number of retro-inspired looks. We adore her latest ensemble of cream, full skirt, a midriff-baring crop top and pillbox hat, complete with washboard abs, naturally. The fifties-throwback look is part vampy, part girlie and is enough to have Miuccia weak at the knees.

Here’s how to steal AnnaLynne’s style for less:


Jacquard animal skirt: This jacquard skirt with subtle animal print is actually much easier to wear than you think; with its soft, muted tones and full shape it whittles in your waist and skims your hips, making you look gorgeously slim with a teeny tiny waist. Play with proportions by adding a waistbelt and slouchy top, or show off your toned abs with a cropped-top a la AnnaLynne.

Neoprene skirt: Neoprene is the fabric of the season as it nails the sport luxe trend perfectly and this Topshop number is also in spring/summer’s must-have hue, white, meaning it nails two trends in one – perfect! You’ll make an impact with the A-symmetric silhouette whilst the gorgeous full shape will cinch that waist in making you look itty bitty.

Full skirt: Add a little luxe to your look with this full skirt from H&M. Wear it for drinks with the girls to ace the flirty-but-cute look or at work with a formal top to make an impact.

Ribbed crop top: This ribbed crop top is ideal for a casual, Prada-inspired look. Plus it’s available in a kaleidoscope of colors so you can have one for every outfit you can think of! Keep the top tight for a clean and sleek silhouette.

Crop top: Play with proportions with this top for a laid-back, boho feel. Opt for sorbet pastel shades for a totally fashion-forward spring look.

Bralet: To add some va-va voom or to cover up if you’re feeling a little bloated opt for a bralet-style top and team your skirt with a waist belt to break up the lines of your outfit. Patterned, colored and embellished bralets all funk-up your look and look amazing with a full skirt in a solid color.
You don’t have to be dressed head to toe in designer wear, you can create your own sense of style for less by taking elements of the season’s key fashion trends from CafĂ© La Moda; you can mix designer belts for women with your own familiar style to can create a unique ensemble that will leave you feeling and looking fabulous.
