Welcome back to our guest blogger series with the incomparable Wrecked Stellar. As promised, here’s the list of her top 5 picks and über chic styling tips. Feel free to take notes. We did!
1. Smocked Mesh Bolero Bra :
This bra is sexy without trying to be. To balance out the feminine ruffle trim, wear it under an oversize men’s button down shirt. Finish the look with black satin hot pants (to match the bow) and black heels (stiletto pumps or stiletto sandals with one skinny strap over the toes). The simplicity of the bottom half works well with the unexpected duo at the top.
2. Roses & Mesh Chemise:
Undergarments are meant to be worn out. Wear an oversized blazer over this chemise and button the last two buttons so that the top to middle sections of the rose embroidery and mesh show. Pair it with heels that match the blazer’s color for a cohesive look.
3. Red Leopard Lace Dress:
While this lace dress has a wild-like quality to it because of the leopard overlay, the color of the accessories can flip that perception. Pair the dress with babydoll pink stone earrings, rings and matching pink heels for a Valentine’s Day spectrum. Or pair the dress with an emerald green stone necklace, bracelets and matching green heels for a little Christmas spirit. These color choices take the look to another level, especially when worn beyond the time frames of these holidays.
4. Crossover Tee in White:
The crossover structure elevates this t-shirt. Since the cut of the top already shows the stomach, the goal is to play off of that with low waistlines. Wear it with low-rise denim cutoffs or with a pair of luxurious faded black, vintage-inspired sweatpants (make sure to fold the waistband down once to show off your stomach). Complete the look with gray heeled booties or bright sandals to add a pop of color.
5. Distressed Sequin Jean:
With the sequin embellishments, these jeans don’t need much more than a thin ribbed white tank top. Tuck the tank into the jeans or tie the back of the tank in a knot so that it becomes a cropped top. Finish the look with white canvas sneakers to nod to the simplicity of the tank or silver heeled sandals to match the sequins.
