We Love Her Dresses… How To Dress Like Zendaya

Always wanted to know how to dress like Zendaya? Us too. Her flawless style on and off the red carpet is a constant source of inspiration and we’re forever wanting to replicate her most iconic looks. Since we know you feel the same, we’ve finally put together an edit of show-stopping designer silhouettes to rival Zendaya’s most enviable fashion moments. Keep scrolling and discover our irresistible edit featuring dresses from Oscar De La Renta, Helsi, Elie Saab, Mac Duggal, and more…

Stock Your Closet With Floral Embellished Silhouettes

Learning how to dress like Zendaya is all about the details in her dresses. For example, she loves to rock designer dresses and gowns with 3D floral embellishments. With that in mind, we wasted no time adding the ruched appliqued cotton-blend poplin midi dress by Carolina Herrera to our lineup. Firstly, just like Zendaya’s dress, this one boasts a figure-enhancing shape, an (almost) off-shoulder neckline, and a statement 3D floral applique detail on the bust. Meanwhile, we love how amazing it’ll look with heels for a red carpet event, a bridal shower, or even warm-weather dinner plans.

Additionally, we fell head over heels for Zendaya’s floral embellished pink gown at last year’s SAG awards. The ultimate example of embracing the romance trend, the all-over appliques stole our hearts and matched perfectly with the soft pink hue and silky sheen of the fabric. Since few of us have an immediate need for cascading red carpet gowns, we suggest slipping into the beautiful Mensa appliquéd mini dress by Love Shack Fancy instead. This dress combines all the best elements of our inspo dress but in a more readily wearable way. Pair yours with designer heels, like metallic pumps or stiletto sandals, for maximum style points this spring and summer.

Be Bold Like Zendaya With Eye-Catching Prints, Cut-Outs & Colorways

Knowing how to dress like Zendaya means embracing unique designer silhouettes, prints, and colorways. For example, she loves dresses with cut-out details and unforgettable hues. Therefore, we highly recommend adding the Bali gold gown by Bronx and Banco to your cart before it inevitably sells out. Of course, we’re taking heavy inspiration from her bright yellow cut-out gown and this dress will have you feeling ready for your turn on the red carpet. Not to mention, it looks sensational with heeled metallic sandals for warm-weather evening events.

Finally, warmer weather is all we can think about right now. Therefore, we’re looking to Zendays to inspire our vacation dresses too! Her mini pink floral dress with a ruffle neckline is exactly the vibe we need. Luckily, the Charmed plunge mini dress by AJE happens to be the perfect dupe!
