Get the look for less: Amber Heard’s monochrome maxi POSTED BY LTS Beckie 07.17.12
You’ll recognise American actress and tall girl Amber Heard from her roles in blockbuster movies like Pineapple Express and The Rum Diary, in which she starred alongside Hollywood heart-throb Johnny Depp (lucky girl!) This week, she also impressed in the style stakes, after she was spotted out in sunny LA working an effortless, off-duty look.
The 26-year-old wore a gorgeous monochrome maxi skirt and strapless white top, which looked great set against her sun-kissed skin and blonde locks. Amber added a feminine twist to this summer’s maxi trend by softening her pleated maxi skirt with a pretty lace bandeau top, and finished off her ensemble with a casual pair of gladiator sandals and matching tan satchel.
Maxi skirts and dresses are perfect for tall women this summer, as they flatter long legs and are bang on trend, making them an ideal wardrobe staple. A maxi skirt and contrasting top is also an easy way to work the colour-blocking trend, whether you choose to go for monochrome, like Amber, or opt for a bright, contrasting shade such as yellow, red or fuchsia.
To get Amber’s look for less, why not try our Embellished Bandeau Maxi Dress (£45) in figure-flattering black. The elasticated waist band will give your look some structure, as well as creating curves in all the right places. This dress is also lightweight, making it ideal for your holiday suitcase. Slip it on for an easy-to-wear beach style, or dress up for cocktails at the bar.
We suggest pairing your maxi dress with our tan Leather Jeans Belt, (£15) so that you can accessorize your outfit like Amber. If you’d like to layer up your look, we recommend a contrasting white Twill Denim Jacket (£40), ideal for slipping on in the evening and adding some texture to your outfit.
Amber’s gladiator sandals are a stylish finish to her summer look- and these relaxed Faith Sandals (£45) in complementing tan colour are the perfect alternative. Just switch to wedges for an easy day-to-night transition!
