The Ultimate Airport Look By Olivia Culpo

May
26

Olivia Culpo has never had a fashion miss in my book – she always dresses impeccably! And always with a touch of edge! Last month the former Miss Universe 2012 shared an Instagram post before flying out to Vegas wearing one of my favorite airport looks.

OliviaCulpoThe brunette beauty wore a loose-fitting white T-shirt with dark blue cut-off shorts and thigh high boots. The 24-year-old added a gold buckled belt, a Chanel purse and a leather jacket.

The key to this outfit is to make it look effortless – and that’s done by casually tucking the front of the top into the shorts. Olivia’s boots change the look from simple to wow. Just make sure your boots aren’t that high and still comfortable for a flight.

She pulled her locks back into a high bun and finished it off with vintage-inspired sunglasses. It’s the perfect stylish airport look.

Style Inspired: Hailey Baldwin’s Lace Up Shirt & Kendall Jenner’s Blush OOTD

Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner were spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing two completely different but equally gorgeous looks. Keep reading to find out how to recreate them!

Hailey Baldwin’s Lace-Up T-Shirt X Mini Skirt X Sneakers

Hailey Baldwin Lace Up Shirt Kendall Jenner Blush Skirt Top

The blonde beauty wore a olive hued lace up t-shirt from LF, paired with a cream mini skirt. I am in love with the LF shirt–it’s sporty and sexy without being too revealing.  The fact that it’s a loose top keeps it from being too much for daytime.  Since it’s so oversized, Hailey paired it perfectly with a short skirt–which keeps the focus on the top.

To add even more edge to her look, she added hoop earrings and a large black bag. Her white sneakers keep the look casual with a sporty twist.  She pulled her hair back in a high ponytail, which I think is perfect because you can actually see the lace up detailing that goes all the way up to her neck.

Exact Top: LF Stores (they don’t have an online store but you can find a location here)

Kendall Jenner’s All Blush Look

Kendall wore a silky blush button up top with a matching mini skirt and boots.  The light pinky nude color is so timeless.  When you wear one color for both your top and bottom, it instantly makes your look chic and polished.  For a nice pop of color, Kendall wore edgy sunglasses and a gray purse. The gray purse is the perfect pop of color to bring some dark tones to the otherwise light hued ootd.

She also chose to leave her shirt half-tucked inside her skirt, which is an easy way to make it look more laid back. The calf-length boots in the same color elongate her legs even more and make the look seamless.  She left her hair down straight, which I think suits the outfit well because it looks more effortless.

The first time I saw the photo of Hailey Baldwin in a red Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren floral maxi dress with suede boots and turquoise jewelry, I was speechless!  I love how she paired the suede boots with a long dress–instead of grabbing sandals or heels, she chose knee high boots that compliment the high slit of the dress.

The turquoise jewelry gives the whole outfit such a boho Western vibe. This is a perfect look for spring/summer because it is comfortable yet chic!  The turquoise jewelry also reminds me of one of my fave ladies–Raquel Welch–who also loved turquoise and Native American and Western looks.
