Gail rocked this black monochrome look during mid-October, pairing a black cropped top with black shorts and a fringed leather belt. Using such a dramatic accessory really amped up this simple color story! I love the way it instantly gives the outfit weight and presence. She gave the combo a big dose of glam by adding a crystal statement necklace. I also wouldn’t have minded statement earrings here, as an alternate option. We don’t get to see her shoes, but black leather or suede sandal booties (like these, from her Silver Snap winning May The Forces Be With You photoshoot) would have been an excellent choice.
Lana experimented with gradient color, combining multiple shades of taupe in this look from her trip to Quebec. Her olive-taupe Want My Look bodycon dress got a modern twist from being topped with a gray-taupe long cardigan from Fashion Nova. Her caramel bag served as a bridge color to connect the two differing shades. Coordinating strappy pumps from Lola Shoetique elevated the look, while a golden choker from Windsor Store and hoops earrings brought in a hint of shine. The sophisticated use of color makes this ensemble very chic! A polished bun enhances that vibe. Lana is a queen of switching genres, so it’s no surprise that her next look was a nearly complete about-face: a casually sexy pairing of destroyed denim and a plunge-front ivory cami, taken galactic with of-the-moment metallic ankle booties and a matching bag. I adore the combination of ivory and silver, and I love the unexpected 80’s glam-rock vibe of her boots, as well as the fact that she doubled down on that statement with her bag, so this look is a winner for me. The boots, especially, make the outfit memorable. The one change I might have made is to swap to a silver coin pendant, instead of mixing metals. Her gorgeous half up-do is just icing on the cake! Next up is the blonde beauty in full-on Chic Mode: a one-shoulder crop top paired with high-waisted wide-leg pants (from TopShop), featuring the most fabulous side-tie detail at the ankle. A gold choker, white ankle strap sandals and a black tote round out the look. The unique detail, the interesting way the side-tie and ankle-strap combine and the graphic power of black+white unite flawlessly to make this outfit seriously stunning!
From graphic contrast to complementary shades: Lana left the neutrals behind for her next look as she paired a teal wrap top with an embroidered leather mini skirt ( I love that piece –so much fun!). The color of her top echoes the leaves in her skirt, pulling the look together nicely. Sadly, we don’t get to see much of her accessories, but I’m on board with the chain-handled bag – it makes a great, tougher contrast to the softness of the floral embroidery. I also love how she kept everything else subtle – soft makeup, slim necklace – and let the color and artistry of her clothing have the focus. Black sandal-booties or dark pine minimalist ankle straps would be my preference for completing this look.
Laurel combined two of 2017’s major trends with this floral jumpsuit. What I found most interesting was her decision to style the look with flat sandals – we don’t tend to see many flats here in Divadom, so it immediately caught my attention. Her use of metallic gold echoes the mustard hue in the roses and makes the look slightly more formal, but still relaxed and comfortable.
Mckenzie embraced bright color wholeheartedly in this cerise jumpsuit from Haute Glam Boutique. I love the softly draping silhouette of this piece! One tiny styling caveat: I wish she had tied the central bow just a tad tighter so that it synced up with the waistband more precisely; that little detail would have let this joyful piece display its full polish. I’m intrigued by her choice to pair this hue with camel footwear. I would have reached for black, but this camel shade – despite the slightly jarring contrast of its orange tones with the pink – keeps the whole look much lighter. She chose a more casual look for an evening with her Mom, pairing skinny denim with a black cami and a printed open jacket. With her caramel belt, silver cuff bracelet and cross necklace as well as the print, this is a busier look than we often see from Mckenzie. The neutral supporting pieces help to make it work, especially my favorite aspect of the look: her spot on trend white booties, which complete the outfit with a fresh, clean punch. I get major 70’s disco vibes from her next ensemble, a pairing of printed flared pants with a ruffled cami from Zara. The print plays well against the simpler texture of the cami and with all the movement from the ruffle and flares, this look is just made for dancing in! While she could easily have completed this look with platform sandals, I love that she updated it with a single-soled version. Her gold lariat adds a sexy twist and her high pony looks divine!
I don’t usually go nuts over sunglasses, but these crystal-embellished squares from Gucci, worn by Maryse, are seriously FABOLOUS. Like you hardly even need to wear anything else. But when you do wear something else, feel free to take some inspiration from this black monochrome from the lady who perpetually slays my life. LBD +black suede OTKs = classic chic. Black tights add extra warmth for the chilly season. Bland? Never. A chain detailed back and crimson lips ensure that this look packs a big pop and gets all the attention it deserves. Why I love Maryse, Reason #684616512.
Michelle seems to have had the same idea as Maryse regarding a dress and boots – great style minds think alike, apparently :). Michelle’s take is a little softer, utilizing a piece with cutouts and scalloped edging that adds a beautiful, sweet femininity to the vibe. I love the use of OTKs with a midi dress, especially the flirtiness of the way the side slit shows them off. I wish that slit stopped a little lower though, around mid-thigh – this nearly hip-height looks dangerous! :). Michelle styled the look with a high pony, a coiffure choice that is having a major moment right now. She topped the look with a cropped fur jacket, which was spot on trend and looked totally fierce – i.e. exactly what I love to see from Michelle.
Mickie took a turn with denim-on-denim at TLC, a look I love for her, as it melds current trends with pieces that feel like they suit her fashion sensibilities flawlessly. A metallic silver and black lace-up top added her usual dose of shine, aided by a crystal belt. I love the concept of her sheer flares, but the transition to them from the denim feels a little abrupt. I would have loved if she had left the flares in the denim fabric, but added black sheer and metallic embellishments. On the other hand, can we get a full on pant in the black fabric, also? #PrettyPlease
