How to Dress like Lady Gaga

Fun, funky, sparkly, 80s and always over the top! She pushes the envelope in her fashion choices, always taking risks and it works.  I can't get enough of her and her popularity is just growing with every passing day. I'm talking about Lady Gaga. She is a performance artist and we haven't really seen a good one since Britney. Some people think they can just get up on stage, not rehearse and start their songs over and over. So no matter what you think of Lady Gaga's fashion choices or her as an artist, at least we know she gives us a show.  And I appreciate it.

I realize that in the "real" world, you can't go around wearing hot pants. And it's a shame, they should really start making this acceptable...nevermind, I got a visual of my former boss in hot pants and it wasn't good. So, I am going to take some elements of her outfits and incorporate it into everyday clothes and going out clothes. Here are 3 different looks we've seen Lady Gaga sporting...

lady gaga black dress and liquid leggings
Look #1: Rocker in shiny black
This look is very easy to recreate. All you need are some liquid leggings, a liquid top, a black jumpsuit, and some other patent leather accessories. The leather gloves, the big patent leather bow in her hair are all key to her style. This look is most acceptable for going out or you can wear the jumpsuit as everyday wear. It's fun, it's rocker chic and sexy. If you need a splash of color, wear a bright red bangle, or colored pumps. If you don't want to wear black liquid leggings with a black liquid top, go for a bright color tank top or tube top.  It will be sure to add some flavor to your Lady Gaga inspired outfit.

lady gaga bright colorsLook#2: Give me some color
A true fashionista is always on top of the trends. I have been talking about color, color, color, over and over for this year and I am not the only one well aware of this. Mixing and matching bold colors is not only fashion forward, but a lot of fun! In these examples, Lady Gaga is wearing a red silky hoodie/scarf with a blue blazer and a yellow body suit. To incorporate this to everyday wear, you can use a red scarf, blue cardigan and a yellow tank top with jeans or a skirt and that is how you could replicate the look. You could wear it to work (depending on your line of work), jeans would make it casual for everyday wear and throw on the red gloves and a black miniskirt for going out at night. The key to this is to not be afraid of color and lots of it. If you don't know what colors go well together, look at a color wheel and find the complementary colors. These colors are on the opposite end of the spectrum, giving you an intense, vibrant and bold look.

lady gaga origami dress
Look #3: Origami Dress
This dress is probably the hardest to exactly replicate for everyday wear. It is hard to find and probably hard to pull off at any "normal" function. So instead, I let this dress inspire me to incorporate pleating or geometric detailing in my usual outfits or a dress. I love the cut and length of these dresses. It's great for short or tall people, it's flirty and girly. You could get a short party dress and funk it up with one big chunky geometric belt or multiple small ones to get the same feel. To replace the origami craziness on her shoulder, go with a chunky geometric necklace.

When dressing like Lady Gaga, you must always remember to make a statement, take risks, and have a lot of fun with fashion!

    I don’t like all of her tracks, but certainly love her image! I would say she is a little too sexually charged to be a good role model for young girls, but she certainly rocks a unique look and despite not being physically that attractive, she has the confidence which makes her sexy.

    I would say that her style is more for older teens who are verging on adulthood, rather than 11 – 15-year-old girls.

    For the last “origami” dress u said that it was the hardest to replicate. Not necessarily my good fellow! Theres plenty of ways that u can replicate this image (obviously not to a T but be recognized differently) Anyone who really wants to dress this outrageous or at least follow her fashion trend just look up the names of the designers that design for GAGA and just look for their “ready to wear” clothing. Every couture designer has to design another outfit that is representation of the couture gown!! not everyone can afford haute couture designs!
