May was a sweet month for WWE fashion! Among other notable events, we saw Natalya give the hot and trendy choker a try, paired with this zip-front top. It Chokers work fabulously with lower necklines, like this deep-v. Nattie accented it with hoop earrings for a touch of shine.
I'm always on the lookout for new divas (oopps...superstars!) who bring a sense of fashion to the ring. This gear from Peyton Royce caught my eye, due both to the design and the unusual color combination. Mint with plum is a unique pairing and I love the way the two cool tones complement each other. The mint gets a wonderful zing from the fruity purple shade - it looks good enough to eat! :) The cross-body piece is also a fun choice of design. It's practical, but not common. The textural accents add dimension and sprinkle the extra color throughout the look, while the sheer insets add another layer of intrigue. This is quite an intricate gear set for a lady who isn't yet on the main roster, making me think Peyton is definitely one to keep an eye on as far as fashion goes!
Stephanie took her turn at the menswear-esque suiting look, pairing a powerful blazer with leather skinny pants. Like Renee's ivory WrestleMania suit, this jacket creates an instant impression. Note, though, how much higher the stance is on Steph's jacket, creating an empire waist. The similar long cut with the different higher stance keep Steph's look a touch boxier, but equally strong and confident. Pairing it with leather brings even more edge, but that is softened just enough by her white shirt and half up-do. Her pendant enhances the v-neckline of her blouse and helps balance the look. This pairing is much riskier than many that we've seen on Steph. I love seeing her step outside her comfort zone with her fashion and the boldness of this outfit works really well, in addition to suiting her on-camera persona.
This gear from Charlotte reprises the design of WrestleMania gear, but switches the colors. Instead of blue accented with silver, it's a study in black, with the blue retained as just an accent color. The design is still attractive and the center floral stars are just mesmerizing, but I find the black a tad dull after the glorious blue as a main shade. I wonder if a stronger accent color, or something more surprising - like a holograph material- wouldn't have worked a little better for a darker statement look.
Eva Marie attended the Bellami Hair red carpet event along with Maryse. Eva glowed in a sequined suit. Going cami-free works for a formal night event and I love the way her polished, slick ponytail added a more refined vibe to her look. She added a spark of color with red, suede ankle straps sandals - love those shoes! And the extra color is a nice way to throw a twist into this look, which could easily have been an expected black monochrome ensemble.
Nikki let her glittery cowgirl side go free when she recently attended a Miranda Lambert concert. (I envy her that - Miranda's music rocks!). She paired a sand asymmetrical top with light wash denim and a broken-in caramel belt. The play of the light denim and caramel, with their worn and worked-in vibe, against her daring, sparkly top creates a nice contrast and captures that dressed-up country girl dynamic. She accented the outfit with a so-hot-rn choker in deep tan leather, a choice I applaud. I'm wishing she'd added a brass pendant to it, perhaps a star to add one more layer to the western-formal feeling. Her next outing showed off a radically different look, as she paired a chic, striped off-shoulder top with high-waisted wide-leg pants. This outfit is retro and iconic! She spiced it up with a classic red lip and kept things polished with a sleek bun. It's always so amazing to me to put two looks like this side by side - they're so different and yet, Nikki handles them equally well. It's the mark of a true fashionista! She kept the polished feel going for a speaking engagement in Dallas, in company with Brie. Brie's look was a crisp white coord set, made modern by the addition of sheer stripe at the bottom of her crop top and skirt. Black pointy-toe pumps kept her look clean-lined and sophisticated. She complete the outfit with a black clutch. Nikki chose to pair navy pants with a white blouse and a boldly striped double breasted jacket. My favorite pieces in this look are her cherry red bag and her gorgeously layered pearls, which soften the look. We don't see divas do pearls all that often -which is a shame, because they're fabulous! - and it's a jazz to see Nikki break them out here. Their soft sheen is a wonderful counterpoint to the bold striped of her blazer. Lastly, Brie graced us with this simple and chic look from her Insta. She described it as one of her favorite a pairings: a minimalist top, skinny jeans and fab heels. White and denim is a classic combo that always carries a punch, but these denim heels really bring out a great angle to this pairing. They add a mixy but not matchy color, as well as texture to the look. The whole ensemble is quiet and classy, but Brie takes it a step further: she adds a second pop of color with her turquoise statement ring, and then a third with her magenta lip shade. The three shades harmonize, even though they're clearly distinct from each other. Because they're each done in just tiny quantities, they don't compete or distract from her look; they add just the right amount of surprise and spark. That's how you keep a classic fresh!
