So, it's all over the map in fashion this time around - we have everything from trench coats to bikinis! Yayness :-)
First up is Jojo in a minimalist bright red dress. This piece is vibrant, feminine, classy and - with its' high-neck halter styling - spot on trend, making it exactly what we'd expect from a ring announcer. What really made this outfit pop, though, are those shoes!! Black ankle strap sandals are always going to rock my world, forever and ever and over again...but the mixed media on this pair is a stand-out detail that adds extra va-va-voom to this look!
Nattie prepped for her Hawaiian trip in this leather-sleeved Burberry trench coat (thanks to FashionOfTheDivas for the ID). Paired with leggings and peeptoe boots, it makes her look like a super-spy! And honestly, who doesn't want to feel like a super-spy sometimes, right? Nattie's looks are always amazing; she contrasts simple elements so well...and she never forgets that spike of fierce!
For those of you who loved and adored Taryn, she is around and chillin' with her bestie, Brooke! While T has re-focused her life, it still makes me happy to "touch base" with her and see that she's doing well! Don't you love her boldly striped bikini? It's so cute! I'm also loving the bright color of Brooke's coral swimsuit. There's just something fitting about gorgeous, saturated color on bright, scorching days!
Speaking of which, I also love bright color for the gym; it gets me motivated! Summer paired this bright halter top with capri leggings (big fan of those, too!). Multi-colored sneakers finish this look and the way they blend the outfit is complex and interesting. The neon orange and purple don't match the candy pink in Summer's top, but they balance it out. The similar intensity of the colors and the unique harmony they comprise works quite nicely. Now, that's the way to bring some fire to your gym time!
Summer rocks a bikini just as well as she does gym gear. This one combines a black string top with a black print+red bottom. As with her gym-wear, this pairing coordinates in a great way. At first glance, it looks like a black and red combo, but on second look, the black and white print becomes clear and the whole thing comes off fabulously stylish in an unexpected way.
Maryse demo's her casual style in this snap...and it's just as fab as her ring, travel and appearance style! She combines distressed denim shorts with a taupe tank. So far, it's basic enough. But she really kicks it into high gear with her shoes: lace-up gladiator heels that are smoking HAWT! Never mind that it probably takes a team of minions to get into them; fashion is a jealous goddess and those who serve will shift the universe for her ;). A coordinating tote and massive sunnies complete the look. I'm especially intrigued by the color palette Maryse has used here: the denim and taupe are cool neutrals and are warmed slightly by the could-go-either way tone of the almond. It's a chic and sophisticated blend which, along with those amazing shoes, elevates this casual look to trademark Maryse stylishness.
Renee was also exploring casual fashion. Her pairing is completely classic: white tee, blue denim. However, as with Maryse's look, it's her shoe choice that gives this outfit it's je ne se quoi. Lace-up biker boots throw a rebellious curve into the classicism of the rest of the ensemble. The ease and practicality of this outfit makes it memorable, accessible and infinitely inspirational :) I could see doing this with the knotted, as well as tucked in a la Renee.
Nikki's trip to Cannes was the source of some utterly romantic and beautiful fashion, including these two white lace dresses, both from Self Portrait (ID by FashionOfTheDivas.tumblr.com). The first is an all-over tea-length piece which brings out all the sexiness and modernity of lace. She matches it with nude peeptoe pumps, in the current de rigueur combination. White heels would have been a lovely choice as well. Even though she added a tiny pop of color via her choker, the hallmark of the look is the overall softness and freshness. She goes for a bit more spark with her next choice, a tiered confection that combines polka dots and sheer fabric along with lace. This dress is unbelievably gorgeous..and a piece I'd happily wear myself. Nikki added tiny pops of red (via her bag) and black (through her strappy sandals). On other days, she used the above-described choker or a wide-brimmed straw hat, accented with a red ribbon, to provide the touch of color. The series of looks is incredibly chic, due to the palette of white, red and black and her use of white as the main canvas. As a central color, it keeps her outfits light and delicate, i.e. perfect for the summer months! It also highlights a great way to edit your closet if you're looking to simplify, or to pack for travelling. By choosing a palette of three colors and working within it, it's simple to create a wide variety of outfits without having to worry about doing a lot of coordinating or requiring a large number of pieces.
Renee did more of "that casual thing" :) on Unfiltered, but gave it a boho nod with this embroidered maxi skirt. She toughened up the sweet florals with her Temeku boots from Jeffrey Campbell; the thick straps and buckles bring an urban cowboy vibe to the femininity of the skirt. Her blue biker jacket forms a nice bridge between the charm and the brawn, so the whole outfit comes together perfectly, albeit with Renee's distinctive and delightful viewpoint.
Summer finishes out this FH with a soft, drapey pantsuit in pale blue. Everything about this piece looks airy and comfortable, while also being casually glamorous! Small details - the scoopneck, the gathered bodice, the knot-front - add drama to this piece. I can imagine accessorizing it with a metallic cuff bracelet and wedge espadrilles for day or fierce lace-up sandals for night.
