Ay-yi-yi: there’s so much fashion inspiration in the September issue of Glamour, starting with the cover girl, Victoria Beckham. On one of her bonus covers, she rocks a lavishly embellished Balmain mini-dress and teal Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.
I love this combo of a fierce dress and boldly colored heels: it’s so fun and fashion-forward, and definitely not for the faint of heart. Here are some ideas to get you started on recreating her look:
|Scarf Print Bodycon Dress, $19.80, Forever 21; dress, $34.95, H&M|
|L-R: Disco Zebra Body-Con Dress, $19.99; Mixed Print One Shoulder Dress, $24.99; Mixed Print Illusion Dress, $24.99; Charlotte Russe|
And of course, the shoes (which I featured yesterday for Cute Shoe Monday):
|L-R: Sueded Keyhole Platform Pump, $35:50; Sueded Uber Platform Pump, $32.50; Round Toe Sueded Wedge, $35.50; Charlotte Russe|
For her hair, Victoria is wearing a low, messy ponytail. Straighten your hair if it’s wavy, and add a little shine spray. Pull hair back into a low pony, then tousle the ends and pull out a few pieces around your face for an undone finish.
Complete the look with brown eyeliner and plenty of mascara to define your eyes, flicking the liner up at the outer corners for a subtle cat-eye. Then add a peachy-nude lip color and dark nails for a rocker edge.
