Heeeeeeyyyy Ms. Carter and Ms. Akers! 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 silouhette, 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.

Each of these looks accentuate Beyoncé’s figure and aim to make a bold statement. It’s as if each look is strategically pieced together to match her mood. Zerina has created significant style moments that we will remember for years to come! I mean this collaboration has kept Beyoncé’s foot on our necks! This was that season for Mrs. Carter for sure.

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

Metal Sandals ($850) from Balenciaga.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!

Cotton Candy Dream- Tulle and Pastels

I fell in love with this color block tiered tulle dress from ASOS the moment I saw it. From the color combination of pastels to it’s layered tulle, this dress stands out in the crowd. Talk about a statement piece! I lucked up because it was on sale for $33 and of course I love a good sale. (My favorite past time is to browse through ASOS sale items). I had to have this piece in my wardrobe.

I originally wanted this dress for an event earlier in the year but it was completely sold out. After checking back a few weeks later, there it was. My cotton candy dream dress was there for me. It was fate!

I wanted to create a look with popping hues that was unique and stylish. Elevating my layering was key to piecing my outfit together. I layered this dress over a yellow sheer organza pussy bow top and yellow silk heels. Pairing statement pieces that can be worn interchangeably is an innovative way to mix and match your pieces and create new looks out of what you already own.
