FashionHap: Maryse & May '16
Are ya loving you some Maryse, lately? We're kicking this FH off with a breakdown of a series of her recent looks! One thing she's been doing a lot on tv lately is re-using her main pieces, while making them look different via alternating underlayers and accessories. It's a formula we've seen Maryse employ before and one which I thoroughly espouse. Great fashion requires too much effort and energy to find to wear it once or twice and then ditch it and quality fashion is too expensive to do so. When I find pieces I love, I want to keep them perpetually! That requires a touch of creativity, but following Maryse's example let you do it and never feel bored.
This gray lace-embellished statement trench might just be my favorite of her mainstay eye-catchers. It's dramatic, feminine and sexy! Maryse has switched up the feel in a couple of ways. This first look is all about the sexy side (spiked with glam, of course ;)), with her cat-scratch-detail bodysuit and lace-up OTKs. The whole vibe centers around showing peeks of skin in various ways, but never too much at once. It's flirty and seductive. Her sparking crystal statement necklace and belt buckle lend a luxurious vibe that adds a power and haughtiness to all that temptation. This lady's shine will not be dimmed! Her next pairing uses the coat as a contrast piece to a simple black bodysuit with a plunging v-neckline. That detail is accentuated by a bold, architectural necklace. As with the first look, her lace-up boots finish off this combo, letting laciness - in all it's glory - take center stage. Her last tv outfit uses a similar simple one-piece underlayer, this time in steel gray, topped by a truly killer coat. This leather trench is accented with a bevy of huge studs at the lapels, closure and wrists for a fierce af rocker vibe. In this case, the gray beneath works to bring extra dimension via the additional color. Leather+suede OTK's, which echo her trench's rebellious attitude, close out the outfit. We've seen her pair those with the gray lace coat in the past and I'd be willing to be we'll see the lace-up OTKs with the studded topper in the future!
Our last Maryse look is from the Bellami Hair red carpet event: this simple mock-neck gown...with a not-so-simple an oh-so-sexy side lace-up cutout. It's cool and pristine in this shade of bright white. And if it looks a little familiar..well, it should! Barbie wore this same dress in red not too long ago.
This FH is also chock full of blondes ;). From Maryse to Charlotte we go! Char wore this monochrome look on tv recently, pairing what looks to be the ubiquitous American Apparel sheer-inset bodysuit (that we've seen her and many others style) with skinny jeans and a classic leather motorcycle jacket. The standout feature of this outfit is her studded ankle boots. If you immediately thought "Jeffrey Campbell Spike Lita boots!!!" "!!!", I was right with you :). Upon further observation, however, I think this pair is actually the Stud Back Sueded Lace-Up from Charlotte Russe (and now sadly sold out :'( ). However, not sold out are Kendall+Kylie Abi 3 pumps she wore for her next look, so possibly that is a consolation. Maybe. A little? *looks hopeful* This outfit is a fun combo of smooth leather skinny pants, frilly lace via her super cute embellished top and a polished sand blazer. The variety of textures in this look really makes it special and gives it a nice pop. And, since it's me, it's hard to not do a happy dance at the sight of a well-used blazer (sorry not sorry :)). Literally, this is how it's done, loves!
Ditto that for Stephanie's fit-and-flare dress, a classic LBD, with a beautiful pointelle neckline. The mockneck style is a tad mod and the scallops+knitwork are tremendously romantic and all together, they're just flawless. Steph brings a dash of attitude to the look by finishing it with suede peeptoe booties.
The last blonde of the day is Lana, bringin' sexy (and more) back, as she returns to her familiar mini-skirt and bustier coord set. The scalding red is a confident way to return to the styling, which gets an 80's nod from a strong-shouldered cropped jacket. I'm a fan of the touches of black lace on her bustier; that color combo always rocks hard and the detail serves to add a dark, sultry vibe to the fiery, all-eyes-on-me attitude of the red. We're one refined bun away from the return of the Ice Queen ;). I'm very excited about the reintroduction of a pulled-together look, and I also can't wait to see the ways she metamorphsizes it this time around.
