The catching up continues! :) I'll be focusing on in-ring fashion for just a bit, but I'll get to everything else as well!
Becky has been nailing her in-ring looks lately with simple, but unexpected combinations. This tank included a mash-up of standard-size and exploded houndstooth in olive-gold metallic and black. She mixes her metals by pairing it with graphite shorts. By using unusual metallics, she keeps thie look fresh, as well as giving it a modern-fantasy tinge, which suits her well. The minimalism of her shorts also balances out the complexity of the print. The overall effect is pleasing and I really like the direction she's taken her gear. For her next iteration I'd love to see her add one more twist to her silhouette, such as a very simple partial cap-sleeve that acted as a shoulder-covering. It would enhance the fantasy-leaning, while also tapping in to the strong-shoulder trend, but most importantly would give that touch of distinction to the styling that would make it uniquely Becky's. It would be all she needed to take this gear to the upper echelons and it would be so much fun to see!
Alexa's look here reprises the tried-and-true: black top, black zipper-embellished moto leggings. She swaps the black blazer for the more common leather jacket. I like this look, but I have to note that there's nothing surprising or engaging to it. It's a solid effort, though, and works perfectly for her character and the occasion.
Carmella takes on camo for this in-ring moment. There's so much of it going on in this look - and her graphic tee doesn't help the effect by adding additional visual clutter. That leaves me not completely sold on the print, despite its current popularity. Perhaps because of that, I think Carmella succeeds better when she expands her trademark leopard with sporty elements like mesh, as in the clean, fierce, athleticism of her sports bra top in her next version of the look The simpler, but still tough, vibe pairs quite nicely with the camo, making the look much more cohesive.
Charlotte periodically goes into black-monochrome mode and we get a dose of it here. She pairs a lace-up bodysuit with black denim and suede OTKs. The surprise in this outfit comes from her choice of wedges, and the use of a less-common heel style interjects an appealing variety into what could easily descend into blandness.
There's no danger of blandness in Maryse's fashion as she reaches for saturated color for the first time in this era, adding a cranberry red zinger into her corset-over-zip-latex-bodysuit design. It was world full stop when she walked out in this! The strappy sequined brassiere gets its full mileage in this magnificent color, which contrasts flawlessly with the black backdrop. And, if that weren't enough, her cranberry-accented OTKs are Flat. Out. Stunning! Can you even? Like OMG, Maryse! And the slayage goes on! She does it with street fashion, just as well as with ring looks: this cutout-front dress, with its choker illusion is the height of current trendiness. She gave the bodycon piece a glamorous topping: a sequined boyfriend blazer and I love the way it changes the dynamic of the look from trendy-sexy to powerful and dramatic. She enhances that with chic leather crossed-ankle-strap Louboutin pumps
