FashionHap: Mid-Aug'16 Finale
Need a shot of fierce, loves? Look no further than Maryse (naturally ;)). This diamond-printed mockneck dress lets the shine loose via the totally on-trend metallic gold in the pattern. While I'm completely in for the straight-up statement of her dress, it's taken to another level by those ankle-cuff sandals! Oh. My. Gaga. Do I love those! Not only does the leather and the interject some fabulous attitude into the outfit, but also the gorgeous, rounded cut of the vamp is pretty much everything. Her bold eyes and sleek pony only enhance the don't-mess-with-me glamour.
I'm also loving Brie's outfit - this black+white printed crop top and wrap maxi skirt set, which she wore to a Guns N’ Roses concert (OMG ..sosososososososo jealous! I may be permanently green! …guess that means I’ll can be a make-up-free Wicked Witch of The West for Halloween tho #SilverLining). Brie’s jewelry – a layered silver necklace and a statement bracelet – really brings panache to this look.
Speaking of panache, how about Nikki’s outfit, worn at the same concert? She embraced the edgy, rock n' roll spirit of the headliners, with this daring black piece(s?). It's not quite possible to tell if this is a cutout romper, or bodysuit+shorts combo, but either way, it is HOT. The extra dimension created by the sheer overlay skirt is amazing, especially with the shark-tooth-esque details at the edge. Fierce black cutout booties are a flawless finish to this ensemble. Nikki nailed the hedonistic, rebellious aura of the band with this outfit; if you're gonna go there with a look, this is the kind of event to do it at, and this is how it's done.
From all black to pattern mixing and colors: Summer's look pairs an edged Rag & Bone blouse with embroidered cotton shorts (the Sherri by Alice and Olivia). Stripes and florals are a fantastic way to mix prints; the straightforward linearity of the shorts complements the colorful swirl of the embroidery wonderfully. Set against this cerulean wall, the colors really pop! The complexity of the mixed colors and patterns is modern and sophisticated and Summer works it with easy grace.
Natalya can always slay an LBD...in fact, I dare anyone to do it better. Equally well, perhaps. but better = no. This mockneck piece from BCBG is deviod of any embellishment whatsoever...and it's still jaw-dropping due to the fact that it hugs every curve. Natalya delievrs the coup de grace by completing the look with these undeniably fantasmic Jules sandals from Tory Burch. Black suede minimalist strappy sandal with a magnolia flower applique at the heel? Hello, obsession!
Charlotte has a real aptitude for rocking meet-n-greet event looks and this one is one more in that category. She pairs a white lace blouse with leather skinny pants. I’m loving the contrast between the frilly, elegant texture of the lace and the smooth, tough leather. It’s all you need to give an outfit that crucial je ne se quoi. I’m envisioning this look being completed with pointy toe pumps in white leather.
So, honestly, it was the yellow here that caught my attention, not Nikki doing a split. For realz. *earnest nod*. But, again, she *is* doing a split…like, holy stretches, Batman. Props to Bella 1.0! That being said, I do looooooove that yellow crop top. Bright color always seems to energize me, which can be a huge motivator for working out. I’m also a fan of the way she paired it with navy leggings. I love yellow mixed with unusual neutrals (like, anything other than black ;)), and this vivid navy definitely qualifies! Nikki kept right on slaying as she attended a recent brunch with a group of girlfriends, wearing this printed romper. Her white shoes keep the look lighter than black would have, which is appropriate for the sunny, warm day. My favorite part of the look is her floppy red hat; it enlivens the whole outfit!
Brie was in attendance as well, wearing a slouchy tank, paired with striped wide-leg pants in a double-slit silhouette. Fierce black sandals, which we’ve seen both twins rock previously, completed the look. The stand-out stripes of these pants are amazing; the look is bold and suggestive of menswear. I’m jazzed over the contrast between that masculine vibe and the drape-y softness of her tank. The only thing I can’t quite get behind is the double leg slit. It’s a solid trend rn, but I haven’t often seen it done in a way that doesn’t look a bit overblown to me. Now, if these were slit-less, standard pants…oh my! ;). I applaud Brie for taking the risk, though; I love love love it when the ladies do that!
Alicia had that “bright for workouts” thing going on that I raved about with Nikki. This neon pink is sure to get you warmed up in a hurry (note to self: search for neon pink workout wear). We don’t often see Foxy in this color and I can’t think why – it looks amazing on her! Also amazing is her poofed and self-wrapped ponytail…LOVE that look! I hope we get to see that style again soon! The look was put together in support of Tapout’s partnership with WWE and, despite - or perhaps because of – its simplicity, it makes a powerful and appealing statement. Just looking at Foxy’s pose makes me want to hit the gym!
Becky’s Toys R Us meet-n-greet look paired a white, flowy double layered cami, with black denim. It’s a great combo, especially with the contrast of taupe OTK boots. However, it happens to be essentially the same look that she wore to a signing back in March. *sad eyes*. Come on, girl: little twist for us, little surprise. Dress code= yes, uniform = non. ‘K? Her multi-layered bracelet is hella cool, though! More of that please :)
