Priyanka Chopra's Red Shirtdress and Fendi Runway Tote Look for Less

Priyanka Chopra Red Shirtdress Look for Less
A lady in red is sure to turn heads! We are obsessed with this fiery shirtdress on Priyanka Chopra. The belt and piping detail give it a crisp look for an outing that requires something a little dressier, but still has some flare to it! This dress we found from LOFT is available in petite and plus sizes, and we're all about the $70 price tag too. Strappy gold heeled sandals will add a touch of elegance, oval sunglasses for a bit of spunk, and a berry lip for an extra pop that compliments the color in focus. And we must say, Priyanka has the best taste in handbags - they always take the entire look to a whole new level of envious!
