FashionHap: Mid-May 2017,I
I love the multitude of colors in this look from Emma it's like her bright, bouncy, print-happy introductory fashion persona, but done in a much more grown up and sophisticated way. She pairs a simple, deep blue cropped top with a vibrant, free-form print that looks as it was done with washes of color. A mallard blue blends into amethyst, bittersweet red and magenta. It's a perfect example of mixing without matching. I also adore how her dark nail shade adds moody gravity to this look.
We've seen a couple of great ring outfits from Laurel, so I went off to see what the rest of her fashion is like and lo and behold, she kills that too! First up is a sweet floral romper, which she toughens up with split-sided booties. The warm tones of her boots work perfectly with the muted red and sage tones and ivory backdrop of her romper. With a caramel-toned jacket tossed on top, this is a flawless transitional look. Next up is a super-cute and playful combination of a Mickey Mouse tee and cut-off blue jeans. She finished the look with black Converse sneakers and a high pony tail. I love the 90's vibe of her sneakers and the laidback, youthful ease of her styling. She then switches things up with a breezy, feminine off-the-shoulder blue dress (from A'gaci store). Embellished caramel wedge sandals give a beachy, summery spin to this on-trend, pretty dress. A low bun and tendrils enhance the femme vibe. She takes things in a fierce direction with her next look, an envelope-style LBD with a deep-v neckline. She's accessorized it simply, with a slim black choker and ivory ankle-strap shoes. The minimalist philosophy works beautifully. She then does an about-face color-wise, going to an all-white look that pairs a frothy dress with strappy flat sandals. The lace bodice, pleated skirt and criss-cross details give a gentle formality to this dress. Laurel counteracts that by choosing flats and enhances the casually femme vibe with a low pony. I'm so impressed by her wide range of style genres and the way she uses different hair styles to accent her look. Often, we see ladies with gorgeous flowing locks getting stuck on one or two styles, but Laurel works a whole range of options. Brava!
Alicia has used this magnificent color combination of powder blue and banana yellow before. I had to take the opportunity to rave over it again, though, first because it's unique and stunning and second because, this time, she's done it with her newest iteration of her gear. This strappy, sheer-meets sheen piece of fabulosity is a favorite of mine because it handles complexity with aplomb, uses texture deftly and creates cohesive, interesting and totally fierce picture.
Mandy has been a fan of gold boots with her ring gear for some time, but here, we see her giving them a go as streetwear. I'm not ordinarily a fan of such bold footwear, but this works decently well because she intelligently paired them with neutral basics: a black choker-esque top and slim blue jeans. Her Hermes belt is just enough to subtly carry the gold through the look. Her next outfit is an exploration of intense summer colors. She combined a scalding pink romper (from FashionNova) with strappy metallic leather wedge sandals, embellished with pink cone studs (the Madmonica x Louboutin). I love how fearless her use of color is! It's the focal feature of this look and straight up fun! From there, she moved on to a maroon jumpsuit, paired with ivory platform peep-toe heels. Her choice of light-colored shoes helps to lighten the autumnal tone of her jumpsuit, which I like. On my wishlist is for this sleek one-piece (from FashionNova) to have been done in a heavier, less slinky material, which would make it so fierce and polished!
Also autumnal in her color choices is Maryse, with this burgundy bodysuit (from NastyGal), paired with her black La Perla pencil skirt. She spiced up the look with a fierce double buckle belt, which brings a shot of flash and attitude to a pairing that could be quote prim. It also ties in nicely with her Louboutin Gypsandals, which are still some of the hottest shoes I have seen. Ever. This would make such a fab transitional look to wear right now - just swap in any metallic-detailed sandal for the Gypsandals if you don't quite happen to have a shoe collection that rivals Maryse's (yet ;)).
