Renee rocked her look and our world with this studded leather overall dress (the Overall Of It from Nasty Gal). Doesn't it remind you of the Jameson Leather piece Foxy wore for WM Axxess this year?) She contrasted the smooth sheen of the leather with a striped tee layered underneath. The stripes add a chic vibe to the fierceness of the dress that I'm all in for! Renee echoed the silver flash of the studs with a metal choker for a bit more attitude. We don't get to see here shoes, but this outfit is just made for a pair of peeptoe booties in my book :). She went for a more laidback rendition of the overall look with this denim variation, which she layered over a black top. This is the kind of look that could easily look bland, so I was thrilled to see the bright pink lip she styled it with! Along with her fringe bangs, they bring the right shot of attitude and intention to this casual look. Next up was a super-fun exploration of power stripes. The width of this pattern and the color scheme gives this blazer a forceful presence. Renee played up the toughness by pairing it with leather skinny pants, but threw in her usual dose of casual cool by adding a simple cami below. As with the previous outfit, her hair style adds volumes to this look: her high donut bun adds polish, while her wispy bangs add a hint of playfullness. She was back to the one-pieces with this sleeveless jumpsuit. The cutout detail is interesting and modern, but the standout feature is the glorious shade of iris blue-purple - so stunning! Her center-parted bangs give this look a slight 60's kick, which is fun. Add a nude heel or a cute pair of sneakers for a sporty vibe to this and you're good to go :). Her last look continued the vintage theme, but with more of a boho kick: she paired flared jeans with a sleeveless emoticon tee. It's a simple enough look, but her statement messenger bag and oversized heart-shaped sunnies give it the perfect amount of consequence to exude casual cool.
We saw a pair of femme outfits from Sasha, as she wore two lace dresses. The first was a bustier-style piece, done in white with a scalloped hem. The piece derives a hint of modernity from the oversize scale of the lace and I love the way it combines delicacy with subtle sultriness! I do wish I could add about three inches to the lining :), but c'est la vie. Sasha's barefoot pic in an outdoor setting brings out the innocent qualities of this piece, but to wear it somewhere shoes are required, I'd add delicate strappy sandals in silver, nude or white. Her next look has a similar silhouette - it's a bustier-silhouette again and is also lace, but the black print on the gray background heightens the sensuality of this dress. While the other suggested summer frolics, this one is made for night! I'd ditch the sandals for sandal booties or peeptoe booties, both in black!...And maybe add a leather moto jacket, too :) From there, she heads for casual territory, layering a cropped white tee beneath blue denim overalls and completing the look with white sneakers. After her two previous forays into formality, I enjoy seeing something laidback and I especially love seeing her do something this pulled-together and well-chosen. It's trendy, confident, casually polished and ticks all the right boxes.
Summer wore this look all the way back at Coachella, but as I somehow managed not to cover it, I'm pulling it out of storage to do now, since it touches on a number of trends. She paired a white crop top with embroidered denim shorts. I'm obsessed with the pretty roses - what a gorgeous addition to denim! She topped it with a sleeveless lace kimono that added wonderful movement to the look. And that had to be totally fun to wear - don't you just love the sensation of fabric swirling around you?! Light neutral chunky-heeled booties completed the look.
I also went wild over this gorgeous floral print sundress with its rolled detailing at the waist. The simple, A-line styling is perfect for summertime and the print is crave-worthy! The lilac-magenta-indigo-sage color scheme is as beautiful as it gets! Summer let her hair blow loose and trusted to bold eyes and mauve lips to complete this look with soft drama, which works flawlessly. I'd lean toward white or nude sandals to round out this breezy look. Her next pairing combined a mint lace bodysuit with acid wash cut-off denim shorts. The colored lace and the 80's-referencing wash gave this classic lace-and-denim match-up an au courant feel. Summer grounded it a bit with a black leather stud-accented belt. I like the way it coordinates with her smoky eye and the way it opens up practical black boots as a footwear choice, but I can also see keeping this whole look soft and going with a white, ivory or blush belt here and then finishing with sneakers or light-hued flat sandals. I love the casual elegance of her loose side braid - it enhances the girl-next-door vibe of this feminine look! The florals were back in Summer's next outfit, a printed romper that made excellent use of the off-she-shoulder trend. She chose studded leather as an accent again, here in the form of an olive choker and I prefer it to the black belt in her previous look. Even though it's not a light shade, the olive is softer than the black and provides grounding without being jarring. Her up-do adds a touch of extra polish to this sweet outfit. Again, light-hued sneakers or flat sandals would complete this nicely. I could totally be on board with reprising the olive shade as well. Her last snap comes from her 'shoot for the Maxim Hot 100 list, on which she earned a spot this year (CONGRATS, girl!). Her sun-drenched red sports-bra-top and chevron-bottom bikini is expertly chosen to show off her fabulous legs -definitely one of her hottest features! - and this snap makes the most of them. There are some beach snaps from the 'shoot, but I love the exotic mystique of this stucco building and it's leaf molding.
