One of the things that's made Carmella stand out among the new divas...ok, ok superstars :)...is the way she has created a very distinctive style for herself. I guess it's hard not to be noticed when you're wearing leather and leopard print ;). Are you feeling a bit ferocious? Ready to take on the big city, big challenges ...maybe a really big cup of coffee? Take a cue from Carmella and let the animal inside loose. Her go-to's are simple: a lot of black, a few drizzles of leopard, a good helping of leather and a few sprinkles of sheer and/or metallic. Within this palette, there can be a number of variations. As the seasons change, pairing shorts with a jacket is a great way to be a bit sexy, but still comfortable. Start with a black tee, something boxy or drapey; leave the form-fitting ones in the drawer for today. Pair it with black denim shorts - rips, tears, frays and distressing encouraged, but not required. Sling a black bomber over the top, one with a chill or sporty vibe, as opposed to some of the more luxe iterations that are currently available. Finish the look with athletic sneakers. Feel free to go for metallic gold, a la Carmella, if you possess a pair. Alternatively, straight up black will work just as well. Accessories are key to this look; they are where the all-important gold and leopard come in. Add a leopard belt (a leopard scarf tied at your waist is another option, but choose one in cotton or a similar casual fabric, as opposed to something more luxe, such as silk). A leopard necklace is another great option (the one here is from Guess and there are just a couple left at 6pm.com), but if you want to use one and haven't added leopard to your collection get, go with a bold gold chain or simple plate collar. If you're more an earring kind of girl, gold statement hoops are just the ticket. Shorts and bomber not your thing? No prob! Go with black skinny denim instead (biker details encouraged). Add a black tee - body-skimming works flawlessly here, helping to create a sleek, chic look. Next: leopard belt or scarf, same as above. Ditto on sneakers: black+athletic. Ooooor :), go with beige/camel/tan. It adds extra warmth to the look and echoes Carmella's gold without being quite so flashy. Oh, and looks fabulous. That too :). Have a little extra animalian fun by topping the look with a leopard baseball cap. Whether you decide to go for city-chic or city-cheek, unleashing a little beast can be a good good thing, loves ;) XOs!
