3 Selena Gomez Looks You Should Try This Weekend

Apr

Selena Gomez is very versatile with her style – one day she’s rocking a sleek top with skinny jeans and heels and then next she’s sporting a bodysuit with ripped denim. Check out three different Selena Gomez looks that can you try this weekend!

1.All Black

Selena chose to rock an all black ensemble, opting for skinny jeans, a loose sleeveless blouse and strappy heels.  The key to this look is the fit of each piece. She chose skintight bottoms, pairing it with a loose blouse with a long hemline. The two balance each other out perfectly. The heels add that understated sex appeal and really pulls the whole look together. This is a really simple look – but if you’re in a rush and you need to look chic but not like you tried to hard – then this is your look.

2. Lace up X Denim

Once again, Selena shows us how versatile she is. The beauty wore a black lace up bodysuit with a denim shirt, oversized blazer and thigh high boots. She made the revealing bodysuit and mini skirt daytime chic by adding a loose fitting jacket and boots that cover practically her entire legs.  The result is a ladylike but sexy take on lace ups – once again proving that she’s a trendsetter.

3. Neutral Trench coat X Flared Jeans

This is another great weekend look and perfect for spring. Selena paired flared denim with a pale blue crop top and a suede trench coat. The coat balances the midriff-baring top; she rolled the sleeves which makes it more daytime wearable. The flared bottoms and sunglasses are great ways to incorporate vintage inspired touches to any look.  She pulled her brunette locks back into a center parted ponytail and kept her makeup minimal – so that the look is fresh, simple and classic.

The Hottest Accessory You Need This Summer

Jul

The western inspired double buckle belt is the accessory you need this summer!  It’s sophisticated, timeless and will elevate your outfit.  No matter how it’s paired, the double buckle belt will ooze cool girl chic.  Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, and Izabel Goulart are all fans of the trends and with good reason!  While they styled it their own way, the end result is still relaxed chic with a Western twist.  Keep reading to find out how to style it and where to find it!

Selena Gomez White Bodysuit Western Belt Denim Shorts Saint Laurent Boots

Selena Gomez decided to up her white bodysuit and denim shorts by adding a double buckle belt, creating the perfect silloutte. The jacket over her shoulders provides color and dimension to the white and blue toned look, while the Gucci bag and Saint Laurent suede boots tie in that Western vibe.  Her hair pulled back is perfect for this look because she didn’t want to distract from that gorgeous jacket. The boots and bag work well with the belt, resulting in Western chic.

Solid & Striped, The Anne-Marie White Bodysuit, $148

B-Low The Belt, The Bri Bri Belt, $148 (sold out at most stores but available on their site)

Kendall Jenner Black and White Striped Top Western Belt Jeans Model Style Double Buckle

Kendall Jenner really loves wearing belts–Kendall’s staple look is wearing a simple outfit and a belt.  She’s known for her simplictic yet risk-taking take on style.  Her outfit above, a low V neck striped top, black jeans and heels, are all simple yet sexy.  Add in the belt, and you get a  nice metallic touch and a chic twist to the simple black and white look.  The double buckle is an eye-popping element in her outfit and breaks up all the black.

Kendall Jenner All Black Western Belt Model StyleKendall also wore the same belt with a black tank and black jeans, breaking up the monochrome with the double buckle belt.

Izabel Goulart Western Double Buckle Belt Model Style

Izabel Goulart decided to wear a smaller double buckle belt, but it’s still equally eye catching.  She chose to add the belt to a loose dress and leather jacket.  This is my favorite way to style the belt–by cinching the waist and creating a nice shape. The dress would have been too baggy and not really flattering, not even for a model, and by adding in the belt, you get to show off your silhouette.  A simple black belt would have melted into the dark colored dress, but the metalic detailling of the belt pops out and adds that urban touch.  The leather jacket toughens up the look and goes well with the black and silver belt, a simple daytime or nighttime look.

Makeup Inspired: Selena Gomez’ Cat Eyes + Nude Lips

I love cat eyes–I pretty much wear winged eyeliner every day.  I came across this photo of Selena Gomez–not sure where it’s from but I am obsessed with the way the cat eyes are drawn on.  She has a very strong winged look–something I have always been hesitant to try but when I saw how amazing this look was, I knew I had to try it! This look is all about a very pronounced and bold winged eye and soft nude lips. There’s no contouring, no heavy blush.  This reminds me of 60s style makeup a la Brigitte Bardot.  So next time you’re in need of a makeup inspiration to try this week, be bold and try a cat eye look like Selena!

Selena Gomez has great style and she wore this cream sleeveless crop top paired with cream loose pants that was gorgeous!  It can be a great date night look or even a casual day out.  I love how she edged the look with black heels, a black purse, and her black bra.  I like to think of it as a polished up bad girl! 🙂

Three Different Looks You Could Be Rocking This Weekend

Jul

Now that summer is officially underway, beach parties and bbq’s will be making their way on social calendars. If you want to mix up your summer wardrobe, take a look at some looks I’ve been loving this week!

1) Casual and Cool 90s

I love the 90s–it’s my favorite style decade, and who can forget one of the most popular item–overalls! Light blue or dark denim, black, white–love it all! This is a must have item for summer! Throw it on over a crop top and it’s sexy but still sweet. Or wear it with a simple white t-shirt and look effortless. You can show as little or as much skin as you want. Check out this look from Selena Gomez, who is rocking a floral crop top underneath her overalls.

2) Effortless Chic

Denim shorts represent summer to me and adding bold heels and a black belt takes the effortless to another level.  Try pairing it a la supermodel and South African goddess Candice Swanepoel, who wore her shorts with a white top, snakeskin patterned heels and an Alexander Wang purse during Paris Fashion Week.

3) Sexy But Comfortable

Don’t get me wrong short skirts are cute, sexy and look good with everything. But, it’s a pain to wear–you have to constantly make sure nothing is showing, it’s not too short and if it’s flattering. Instead of worrying how it sits on your body, my favorite length is a long skirt. The long, flawy ones are adorable but I like the slightly fitted long skirts. You can get one embellished with zippers, a patterned design, but if you want to try out the trend, get a simple long black skirt. It looks amazing paired with pretty much anything, but I am loving Kim Kardashian’s take on a long skirt summer look. Wear a black version with a black crop top, showing only a slither of skin.
