This weekend, Salma Hayek hit a home run in her Carolina Herrera cayenne-red cotton jacquard dress at the Venice Film Festival. Her romantic reds left us dreaming of gondolas (and the cute men who steer them).
As fashion-lovers who love all things nautical and European, we're swooning over Hayek's weekend look. And let's be honest—you can never go wrong with a darling day dress.
Here's how you can recreate Hayek's look for yourself:
Striped Day Dress and Wide Red Belt
Sadly, Hayek's exact dress from Carolina Herrera's Resort 2013 collection is not yet available in stores. Instead, find a fit-and-flair striped day dress you love. The thin stripes on this Madewell frock, the full skirt, and the high-neckline all match Hayek's silhouette. To create the illusion of the red-banded waistline, strap on a wide red belt, like this one from Diane Von Furstenburg.
Red Cardigan and Glamour Glasses
Tie the red belt together with a classic red cardigan. We love J.Crew Collection's Cashmere crewneck sweater. And what kind of romantic European-chic look would it be without a major pair of glamour glasses? Try an oversized round frame in a light or clear color, like these Tom Ford Rhi sunglasses.
Last but not least, top it all off with a bright red wedge that sport thick straps and a cork bottom. This Forever 21 pair has both!
You can also try this Old Navy striped Chiffon dress (left) or Vila Stripe Bandeau Fit and Flare Dress (right).
