Weekend Style Inspiration
Weekend style inspiration is so needed whether you’re running errands, shopping, hanging out with friends, heading to a funeral, going on a date or simply trying to give your weekend “Kaba” or leggings a break. Of course, we always seem to turn to celebrities and other style influencers for fashion and style inspiration. However, this week’s inspiration comes from regular ole Janes who just did it right.
Weekend style inspiration 1: The Little Black Dress
Personally, my go-to style when in doubt is the little black dress (LBD). This is because it is so versatile and can be styled appropriately for any occasion. Our first LBD features cap sleeves and a little slit to keep things interesting. Heading to a funeral, this LBD is appropriately styled with black pointy toe pumps and minimalistic makeup. The second LBD was for a birthday bash and accordingly took things up a notch. Our style inspiration is a black sleeveless leather sheath dress styled with nude strappy sandals, long blond curly hair and flaming red lips! Again, very suitable for the night-time party look.
Weekend style inspiration 2: Denim
Now on to my denim lovers, our first style inspiration is street vogue. Pairing matching distressed jeans and jacket with metallic slip-on sneakers, this inspiration is one to rev up your swag game big time. The second style inspiration adds some flair by pairing denim with Ankara. This simple white tee with Ankara design features the map of Cameroon with a matching headpiece for extra pizzazz! I am dying for the clear flats accentuated by the huge black floret! Simply stunning!!!
Our final denim inspiration just took styling denim to a whole new level. The distressed dungarees and white tank with red pointy stilettos and attitude to match are just off the chain! Then the purple studded pointy pumps are fashionably paired with skinny jeans and a sexy crop long sleeve peach top. With some fierce black shades, braids like Janet Jackson, and a little belly showing, this is a very alluring look.
Weekend style inspiration 3: Colorful Dress in Solid or Floral Design
As much as I love my LBDs, we can’t live life without some color. First colorful style inspiration is this stunning solid green off-the-shoulder shift dress. Effortlessly styled with nude strappy sandals and matching shoulder bag, this look is so simple yet very elegant. This look can be worn for a date or to hang out with friends. Our second look is a green and purple floral long sleeve shirt dress paired with fuchsia pumps. This look is ideal for church or a formal dinner or a civil wedding ceremony.
Our final look is the crème of the lot. This dress is everything. Sometimes you don’t need the bling and bells to be well dressed. You just need a designer who knows how to juxtapose finesse and simplicity with whimsy and creativity. Ted Baker knows how to dress a woman and make her feel demure and vivacious at the same time. The simplicity of this shift dress is transformed into a sophisticated and sexy piece with the style twist of the dramatic bow fixated at the center so you can’t take your eyes off it nor can you help but drool over it. Now, talk about the nude Valentino Rockstud pumps! They are the perfect complement to an otherwise very stunning dress!
