FashionHap: Mid-Mar '16, Pt 5
So, basically there was NO WAY I was not going to review this outfit because... gorgeous green, Nikki Bella AND two adorable little baby lambs! That's like cuteness, fashion and gorgeousness all in one! Nikki intelligently chose rainboots for her farm visit - practicality is such a great thing! But I love love love how she paired them with this dressy, gathered peplum top! Fashion 101: you can dramatically up the style quotient of casual bottoms and practical footwear with a formal top. And how about that shade of green? Like, heaven!
Green was also Eden's choice for this tv appearance. Instead of bright emerald, she went with pastel mint. The bold, sequined bands contrast with the cool, icy color of the dress's main fabric and make this combination quite unusual. It looks like she completed the look with nude pumps, carrying the warmth of the gold throughout the look.
Barbie was also mixing cool shades with arm ones, as she showed of this minimalist crop top and pencil skirt combo in light steel gray. The set is super-simple, so she sparked it with these killer Valentino Rockstud lace-up sandals in metallic taupe. While taupe is often a cool grayed-brown neutral, these are a warmer tone and almost come off as gold, creating a pretty contrast with the chilled color of her coord set. The Rockstuds also add volumes to this look; the tough,squared-out studs take on a delicate quality when used in a well-spaced mass, set on slim straps, as they are here. This whole series is beautifully designed and just jaw-dropping! It's easy to see why it's been such a massive success.
There is so much to love about this coord set from Maria! First, it's fabulous to see her taking on a hot fashion trend like dark florals, especially since it's not a look we see often from the ladies of wrestling. Second, the set includes shorts, instead of a skirt. As with the dark floral pattern, it's unusual and I'm always a fan of the girls trying something different! That holds true for her mid-height ponytail as well! Maria tends to leave her locks long and flowing, which always looks amazing! But it's a jazz to see her change things up. Now that she's started, who knows what she'll try next - a super-high pony or a loose bun? Omg can you even? Lastly, finishing the look with black pointy-toe heels adds fierceness and attitude, two things which are always welcome in fashion!
Brie gave us another of her awesome one-outfit-two-ways snaps on IG. This one pairs a V-neck cropped top with destroyed denim. The first version utilizes her open-front blazer as a topper. That makes the ensemble appropriate for a tv appearance or meet-and-greet. Version two is sans jacket, making the look work for date night, a festival or a photoshoot. She gets bonus points for the use of the lariat necklace and the hippie rockstar vibes it brings. Hint: almost any long necklace can be turned into a lariat. Just un-clip it, double it up, lay it around your neck and feed the ends though the loop. If you're worried about it coming undone, secure it with a pin. Sweet, huh? :)
