OMG this blouse from Barbie! I’ve been crushing on floral appliqué pieces like this for about a year now and this one will fit right in to my fantasies! I love the color scheme, the gorgeous mix of sizes in the flowers and the off-shoulder silhouette. Barbie paired it with a black mini skirt that highlights the fact that she has legs for days…months actually. Her wide choker makes a strong, solid counterpoint ot the delicacy of her top and loosely echoes the fabric of her skirt, tying the look together perfectly. Barbie finished off the fabulosity with beautiful, delicate ankle-tie sandals that I would take home in a heartbeat. So basically, this is a total win.
Cathy attended New York Fashion Week, looking every bit like a fashion editor in this velvet tee and cropped dot-hem cropped pants. I love the play on textures here – it gives extra depth to this nearly monochrome look. She added a black and white chain-handled bag which echoed the polka dots on her pants and completed the outfit with strappy black sandals that had just the right balance of softness and structure. I’m not generally big on red eyeshadow – I feel like its really tough to pull off and can just make you look like you’ve been crying – but here, I’m enjoying the fashion-forward vibe it adds to this styling. Note: she also wore a red-rose-on-white printed mini dress from Chi Chi London, paired with red snake ankle booties and it looked amazing! Check out the snap here at fashionofthedivas.tumblr.com).
Charlotte shared this snap of her simple but impactful monochrome outfit on Instagram. As with Cathy’s look, a textural play gives interest and power to this all-black look. Instead of luxe velvet on top, it’s fierce and sexy latex on the bottom that serves as the contrast piece. Char paired the statement leggings with a shoulder-baring minimalist black halter top and added a shot of attitude with her studded Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots. This is simple done just right!
Wearing yellow is a great way to catch my eye and Liv sure did with this rendition of her gear. The highlighter shade gives a fun 80’s pop to her black and white graphic tee – which sports fierce slashed shoulders! –and star-lined leggings. The destroyed aspect just adds to the punk attitude. She completed the look with white sneakers that featured black laces and a streak of canary yellow to tie everything together. I love this from head to toe! And speaking of heads, how super cute is Liv’s hair here?! Love it!
McKenzie welcomed February with this black checked romper from Agaci Store. She added warmth and depth by topping it with a burgundy velvet blazer from Lizard Thicket Boutique (that name gives quite the visual, doesn’t it?! :D) She completed the look with a wide burgundy choker and black leather OTK boots that added just the right dose of fierceness to this casually glam ensemble. I’d also have been 100% ok with burgundy suede or velvet OTKs here. Next up was a cute and chill look that combined a camo mini skirt with a boxy black sweater. The proportion play really works brilliantly: her sweater is wide and slouchy, while her skirt is stiff and form-fitting, making the outfit equal parts unstudied and refined. Black OTK boots again completed the look, this time in soft-but-polished suede. February also saw her break out this cobalt floral dress from Diane Von Furstenberg. I love the way this piece is designed: the simplest of silhouettes complements the complexity of the print. Also, about those double front slits…my general rule is that they are never okay, but generally, we see very dramatic, bare-it-all renditions. This version is much more demure and…dare I say…classy. Double front slits like this are ok. McKenize finished the look with strappy beige pumps.
Nikki showed off one of those perfectly simple looks that can just hit you like BAM! She paried a cropped, square-necked tee with destroyed light wash denim. The light-meets-dark color combo is appealing, as is her whole carefree styling – she didn’t over-do this look; a pair of oversized black sunnies was the only accompaniment. I love the on-trend touch of the cuffs on her jeans. While she was appropriately barefoot on the beach, this outfit could work fabulously with anything from black sneakers to espadrilles to pointy pumps to ankle booties.
