At the Basketball Wives Season 4 Reunion, Evelyn shocked the crowd in this stunning, custom Jason Sky black crop top and teal maxi skirt. And to top it all off, she stepped out in a jaw-dropping pair of $3,995 Christian Louboutin Isolde 160mm Platforms.
As we all would love to have a great designer such as Jason Sky create custom looks for us, we (including yours truly), can't always (and by always I mean never) afford it.
Challenge: Recreate Evelyn Lozada's custom crop and maxi.
Budget: $75.00 (excluding shoes)
Options: (See below for photos of the new look)
- Crop Top: Crop tops, a.k.a the new cami, have become a staple in a fashionable closet! ASOS has a great 3/4 sleeve, River Island Cut Out black crop top for just $16.97. Why it works: You want to let your statement piece shine and let your supporting pieces, well support. The cute, color, and sleeve length match Evelyn's top. The only difference is that her shirt has a cute zipper on the back, and even though this does not, it has some pops of skin, adding a great detail to the otherwise basic top.
- Maxi Skirt: Who doesn't love a great maxi skirt? And this color is to die for! With this skirt, you have a few options; go with a bold color or unique cut. Forever 21 has a cute, green High-Low Woven Skirt that can almost mimic Evelyn's custom skirt for a mere $22.80. Another great option: Ditch this green for a popping red Forever 21 Split Pleated Maxi Skirt for 19.80. Although we love the green, this great red has the split to show some skin, paired with an show stopping, bright color. Changing the color of this skirt allows you to bring in your personal taste while still maintaining this fabulous look!
- Accessories: Evelyn has a unique cuff that has some detail to it yet is understated enough to enhance, not take away from, her look. Aldo has great jewelry. Here's a simple yet interesting Waroway Gold Cuff for $15. If you have one in your jewelry collection, even better! The last accessory you'd need is a pair of over-sized gold hoops! We all have seen the huge 'Basketball Wives gold hoops' the ladies wear on the show but opt for something big, yet simple. If you don't have a pair, check your local beauty supply store or these simple, $6 Oversized Etched Hoop Earrings from Charlotte Russe.
- Shoes: As much as we would love to own those Louboutin heels, that doesn't fit into our budget! Shoes typically aren't budget friendly but a nice pair of black stilettos will do the trick to complete this look. If you're willing to spend a little extra money, these Chinese Laundry Missing You Platform Sandals are worth the extra pennies for $66.04. Find a unique, spiked out shoe in black or silver and this look is complete!
Total Cost: $60.77 (add tax and shipping)
