Becky gave us her version of the patterned pants look and, like previous attemptees Maryse and Carmella, her effort comes off well because she kept the pieces around it simple. Unlike those ladies, she went with white instead of black, done in her trademark peplum silhouette. I like the way choosing a lighter neutral brightens this whole ensemble and the luxe texture of her suede OTKs completes it nicely. Becky's been racking up a string of successful looks lately and this is one more in the streak. On my wishlist is to see her bring a top other than a peplum or floaty tank into her mix of spot-on styles.
Alexa's combination immediately caught my eye due to her use of a blazer! I'm a massive fan of them, but we don't see a whole lot of experimentation with the silhouette from the WWE ladies. Biker jackets, leather jackets, fur jackets, denim jackets - those we see a good number of , but it still is a special few who venture into the realm of the blazer with any consistency. What's especially fun about this is that Blissy uses it to add maturity and confidence to a casual urban look. She pairs a graphic tank with leggings and leather knee boots - from this point, the outfit has the makings of a LayCool classic, particularly with that fabulous bold statement necklace crowning it! But Alexa takes it firmly in her own direction via the distinctly un-LayCool-like blazer. I love the way this classic black jacket balances out the chill, streetwise vibe with a chic, confident punch. It works especially well against the effervescence of her pink-edged pigtails :)
Next up is a whole series of looks from Eva Marie, all from her NEM fashion line. When she posted these on Instagram, she asked fans to name their favorite and this green jumpsuit is high on my list. This silk-like charmeuse fabric can be tricky to wear because of its drape-y-ness and the way it reflects light, but the way this garment is styled helps to mitigate that - the gathered and defined waist and central ruching make it quite forgiving and the tapered leg gives it a chic, trendy flair. This entrancing, mystical green shade is fantastic as well. Eva finishes it flawlessly with nude pointy pumps. This fab effort s followed by a simple LBD, with refreshingly modest silhouette. The trick to a jersey fabric like this is to get something that has the right balance of drape and thickness, so that it kisses curves without clinging. The best way to evaluate that is to have the piece at hand and be able to at least touch it, if not try it on. Fierce peeptoe booties add a flawless pop to this simple look. This white mini dress is also among my favorites - it makes the most of Eva's curves and seems to be just long enough to look proper. Her pointy pumps are back in action to complete this outfit.
Outfit #4 echoes her second: LBD and peeptoe pumps. This tank dress works in much the same way as the other silhouette, but I prefer the slightly more polished style to this casual piece, especially paired with the drama of her booties. The patterned lace-up dress is more of what I expect of Eva's style: no holds barred sexy. There are a lot of dresses on the market with various iterations of this vibe. This look benefits, though, from Eva pairing it with fabulous metallic ankle-strap sandals. Those I love! Lastly, she gives this beige dress a twist by topping it with a classic denim jacket. the casual polish conveyed by that choice is appealing, as is the smart use of classy pointy pumps to finish it off. My favorite part of this look is her pretty bun! Eva's long wavy curls are gorgeous - in any color! - but it's really fun to see her go for an up-do now and again :)
We only got a peek at the top half of this snap for Maria, which seems to show her wearing a gear-head-style set of coveralls. I'm not sure whether it's the navy blue color or the casual, zippered-canvas fabric and styling, or the combination of both, but this piece gives my instantaneous Tommy x Gigi vibes. Maria's classic cerise lip probably helps that along ;). I wish we'd get to see the full-on look! Also, have you ever seen a hammer look sexier? Seriously.
This look from Mandy completely blew me away. It's a big change from her trademark sexy style: a stunning ivory halter gown worn for a friend's wedding. I love this silhouette - it flatters so many body types! - and it looks amazing on Mandy. She kept everything else simple and polished, accessorizing with only a bold watch. Her bright azalea lip adds just the right spike of color and her half up-do is subtle and gorgeous! This whole look is A+.
