I went completely head-over-stilettos for this look of Brie’s as soon as I saw it. It’s so simple…but so spot-on stylish! It exudes that certain “just right” quality. She paired a black halter-style top with distressed jeans. The halter is a classic silhouette with a hint of 70’s luxe about it, while the ripped denim tempers that with a grunge-y vibe. Brie completed the look with chunky, strappy sandals and a pink sand make-up palette. Because the outfit is minimal and monochromatic, make-up becomes a critical aspect, a highlight of the look; the impression it creates is strengthened by the simplicity of the canvas it’s set against. I metamorphosized the shading slightly in my re-imagining of her look: to lilac! Pale violet is having a fashion moment right now and it also happens to be one of my favorite shades for spring and summer –it’s so airy and dreamy. Plus, the cool tones harmonize wonderfully with black. So, I thought it would be fun to explore those shades for adding a bit of spice to this outfit. I also thought this was a great pairing to forego stilettos on. Brie makes it look ultra-fab, and I’m always on-board for big heels, but I also like to have a few outfits in my repertoire that work with flats. Black sneakers enhance the grunge vibe of the distressed denim and lend an “off-duty model” quality to the look. The key here is to use a polished top. Don’t go for your standard ribbed tank. You’re looking for a piece that’s a bit more tailored: a camisole, a sleeveless blouse, a silk tank. If you go with a woven cotton piece, follow Brie’s lead and choose a more unusual neckline, like a halter, or a boatneck style, rather than the more laidback round, scoop or v-necks. An off-the-shoulder top would be another option to consider and thoroughly au courant. For air conditioning and/or when the sun goes down, keep the careless cool-girl look going by tossing a bomber jacket over the top. Happy styling! :)
