Nikki has been slaying away on the fashion front all summer, naturally :). First up is a classic Nikki-glam look she created for a girls' night out. She paired a sequin-striped mini dress with strappy black sandals and a slim black choker. The simple silhouette gains power from the variation in finish between the glittering sequins and smooth base fabric. It's fun and mod and exactly the kind of breezily fab look I associate with Nikki. She attended a red carpet event with John in this minimalist scarlet dress from White Fox Boutique, which she completed with gorgeous, delicate nude Lang sandals from Jimmy Choo. I love the way this dress uses an envelope styling to incorporate the super-trendy thigh-high slit, but keeps the look classy via the underlayer. There's a stripped-down power to this unembellished statement and I love seeing Nikki do sexy as more subtext than main theme. She looks stunning here! She took up the dark floral trend with this maxi dress, which we've seen Brie wear as well. Brie finished the look with strappy nude sandals. I wouldn't be surprised if Nikki did something similar, as there's a significant overlap in the twins' fashion sensibilities, even though their individual style is quite distinct. Nikki's next look is a perfect example of the divergent side of their preferences: this olive green one-shoulder mini dress has a fantastic knot-front detail that has a really fierce, couture vibe. She brings a dose of attitude into the look with her mid-calf Prada boots. Next up are two looks I completely adore. The lighting makes it a bit tricky to determine, but I think they actually utilize the same piece (the color is called Silver Blush). It's the pleated Teresa maxi skirt from Miami-based mother-daughter designed label Alexis. This magnificent maxi takes on a fairy tale quality due to the all-over scalloped drizzling of sequins. She tones it down in both cases, first in a relaxed way by pairing it with a casual black spaghetti-strap cami and a black choker in a look just made to be completed with flat, strappy sandals. Next, she tops it with a plunge-front ivory bodysuit a wide choker necklace. The all-ivory look grounds the magical quality of the skirt with a shot of modern minimalism. It seems like there's hardly a wrong way to wear this beautiful maxi!
She explored one of her favorite trends, the slipdress, here in this nearly-monochrome look. She styled the spaghetti-strapped, lingerie-esque piece with a wide choker and nude strappy sandals. I love the leg-lengthening effect of the nude, but I would have loved a more delicate sandal to go with the wispy drapey-ness of this dress. The counterpoint of the wide choker is stunning, though! She accompanied John to the MTV Movie Awards in this black off-the-shoulder dress from Alexis (via shopbop). In addition to the bare neckline, this features flowy bell sleeves, which has been another huge (and staying strong) trend for the summer. She finished off the look with fabulous studded ankle cuff sandals , which she also wore to the 2016 ESPYs and which I vividly remember because I turned myself inside out trying to ID them. And I have! (*hip-shaking happy dance*) They are a variation of the St. Laurent Jane sandal and seemingly quite a rare one; the simpler, slimmer, unembellished version is much more available. Thanks, Nikki for pulling these fab babies out again! It's a little more evidence of how classic-with-a-twist pieces stay relevant. She also showed off another bell-sleeve dress, this one in her signature shade of red. The bodycon mini dress is by Susana Monaco (via shopbop). I LOVE how she styled her hair with the mid-height pony; it picks up the movement of the dress' sleeves so the whole look is lighthearted and flirty! We don't get to see her shoes, sadly, but I'm betting Nikki counteracted all the whippy femininity with something tougher, studded and either black or nude ;).
