Etsy Stylist: Going Wild

Standout pieces that aren’t for the fashion faint-of-heart

Gaga-esque outfits from Amanda deLeon.
For Washington women yearning to find unique pieces on a budget,—which sells handmade and vintage items ranging from T-shirts and hair accessories to bespoke suits and ball gowns—is a great option if you know where to look. Every week, Amber Taylor finds Etsy’s best, whether you’re dressing for an A-list event or brightening up a trusty dress.

Whether you’re wardrobe shopping for a Lady Gaga concert or simply need a single fun piece to spice up your closet, Etsy has dozens of one-of-a-kind clothes and accessories guaranteed to set you apart from the crowd.

Bandage cage leggings from Minx Shop aren’t functional, but they’ll definitely get you noticed. $35.

The Velvet Vixen’s halter top combines flowing accordion pleats with a pearl-encrusted leather collar. You can hide the lace-up back with your blazer until it’s time to cut loose. $150.

This broad blue leather belt will take a plain, loose-fitting dress and turn it into a statement. FeuerUndWasser, $210.

The fanning waves of fabric in Njur Design’s corset bustier ($92) and Northern Sunrise skirt ($98) are both bold and feminine.

Blue hair isn’t required to rock the black metal asymmetrical dress from Amanda deLeon Clothing, but it definitely doesn’t hurt. $300.

The amazing rings from the Istanbul-based artist Selda Okutan feature three-dimensional human figures done in contrasting metalwork. Prisoners of Love ring, $120.

The subtle neutrals of Artlab’s couture bib harness tone down a decidedly adventurous accessory. $138.
