We're kicking off this FH with a super hot look from Natalya - how much are you loving this mini dress+OTK's combo? If you're getting mave-vixen or LayCool era vibes, I'm with ya! Nattie has updated this look though, via the cutout shoulder detail (the use of negative space makes this dress look majorly modern with an architectural, minimalist vibe) and the mini-studs on her boots. Those are like the next generation of fierce, Garage-Glam 2.0. And I'm so on board!
From fierce, we switch right up to soft summer rompers - and a two-for at that! This piece is the Love Lace Romper (now sadly sold out at Megan Fabulous :'() and has a customizable design that allows it to be tied at the front, side or back. It has a sweet-chic vibe, a result of the lace-accented top and flowy shorts below, which appealed to both Brie and Renee. Brie went for the summery butter yellow shade, while Renee chose vibrant red. Which color rocks your world? Yeah, yeah...you already know I'm hands up for the yellow :). Both ladies finished their look with neutral pointy-toe pumps. Renee chose simple ivory heels, while Brie went for cream-and-coffee floral stilettos. I love how Brie also added a contrasting color with her massive turquoise ring. It adds to the summery vibe, but also adds an unexpected and interesting twist to the soft, warm tones that comprise the rest of the look.
Brie's been a big fan of these pumps lately; we see them again in this outfit. They are the Dina laser cutout heel from Alice and Olivia. Brie has also worn these same pumps in denim. This time out, she's paired them with modern skinny jeans and a Brit-vintage feeling high-necked blouse with a floral print and ruffled details. This shirt has such a romantic, throwback vibe and I love the way Brie modernized with the skinny silhouette of her denim and added the extra texture of her laser-cut shoes. The contrast between modern and vintage works really well here, coming off trendy and feminine at the same time. Nikki played on a similar vibe when she paired this cropped lace blouse with skinny denim. As is her wont, Nikki's look leans a bit more to the modern and trendy side than Brie's, but there's a similar blend of sweet and fierce going on here. Nikki accentuates the refined chic aspect of her look, with a bun, instead of the softer half up-do chosen by Brie. Mrs. Bryan can do mod, however, as she demonstrates with her next offering, a flowing mini dress with a deep-v neckline that has a strong 70's nod. I can ttly see her heading to Studio 54 in this! She highlights the depth of the neckline with a slim pendant, and gives it a pop with her gold statement ring and warm, earthy eye pallete. Mulberry lips bring in a flush of color and her favorite pumps of the moment complete this jaw-dropping, night-time look. Not to be outshone, Nikki attended a friend's birthday party in this bright tropical-print cropped top, matched with a white pencil skirt with a thigh-high slit. I love the way she's injected bold color into a classic coord combo - it brings a fresh spin to the styling. She amps that up with her shoes - yellow pointy toe pumps that have me drooling! My, do I want a pair of those! :) Last but not least on our list is Summer Rae, giving us a super fierce rock n' roll look, which pairs a studded leather skirt with a slim top and black heels, complemented by an oh-so-trendy choker. Va-va voom! Summer hasn't brought her rebel side to the fashion fore lately, so it's thrill to see it again. Like the Bellas, she is a master of many different genres, which keeps us guessing - always a good thing! :) This black-on-black combo derives extra impact from the contrast between the soft, clingy knit top and the stiff, smooth leather. The texture variation draws the eye and keeps the look from feeling either over-the-top, or too simplistic. Instead, it's just right. Brava!
