What I wore: My New Year’s Eve Lewk

I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about the dress I wore on New Year’s Eve! So I’ve decided to share with you guys  the details on my look. This 80’s style, luxe pink and gold two toned dress is an original design from retailer, ASOS. What I absolutely adored about this dress was its structured, form fitting design and overall construction. The puff sleeves and structural sweetheart neck won me over.

The dress was a huge hit that night and I loved how I felt in it!  This year, I knew I wanted to make a big statement and I didn’t want to wear a dress with sequins.  Not that there is anything wrong with a sequined dress, but I figured I’d up the ante a bit and step out in something unexpected.

If you’re interested in this dress, it can be searched with product code 1542703. It’s called the ASOS DESIGN Luxe long sleeve cupped two tone mini dress. This dress cost $151.00 and is of high quality! Now I’m usually all up in their sale section but I knew that this was the dress for me! However, I will mention they do have a great selection of pieces on sale.

Beyoncé and Zerina Akers are a Style Match Chosen by Fate…

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter and Zerina Akers have changed the style game from 2017 until now. This perfect match is the reason we have recently been gawking at all of Beyonce’s recent outfits. The looks and moments that have been created have been nothing short but epic. Ms. Akers has been giving us silhouette, body, high fashion, and street chic realness with her style selections while Beyoncé strikes memorable poses for Instagram, bringing these looks to life. Let’s take a look at how this partnership has unfolded and evolved with a few of my favorite statement looks of the year.

Zerina Akers has undoubtedly left her permanent mark in the styling industry with her more recent collaborations with Beyoncé, among other artists such as Chloe and Halle and Niecy Nash. Zerina nails her looks for her clients by simply choosing garments that work best for their body, while experimenting with silhouettes and pushing the envelope with unique pieces. While she has worked with a slew of world-renowned designers, Akers continuously breaks barriers and enlist the help of a number of black designers. This in itself makes Ms. Akers a serious force in the fashion world.

Square Toe Shoes: A Go or No?

Square shaped soles and toes are a thing for the upcoming Fall 2019 season. From boots to single sole kitten heels, the square toe is all the rave right now! A change in trends is always good but are we feeling the square toe ? Let’s take a look at some of a few designer styles of the new square toe trend.

Heeled Leather Square Toe Sandals ($99.00) from Zara.com

Heeled square toe ankle boots ($169.00) from Zara.com

Kaia Heel-Spice Multi ($348.00) from Cultgaia.com

Jasmine Sandal-Spice ($388) from CultGaia.com

Double square BB slingback pumps ($695) from balenciaga.com

Prada square toe Knee high boot ($1,200) from shop.nordstrom.com

Amber Ankle Strap Stiletto Sandal ($ 645) from shop.nordstrom.com

So the next case is how you should style square toe shoes. I’m all for oversized blazers and shirts with minimal accessories and cute open toe square sole heels. Whether it be a kitten heel or taller heel, oversized garments such as dresses and shirts would look especially chic with open toe versions of the square toe trend. This would make a seemingly understated shoe the focal point of your look.

Square toe boots would look great with jeans and a tee paired with a leather jacket or trench. You could also do a mini dress, pencil skirts, casual midi dresses, or wide leg trousers for an elevated fall look.

So are you going to be rocking the square toe trend this Fall?? Let me know what you think about square soles in the comments below!
