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.

Weekend Brunch Vibes: Style Inspo

It’s finally the weekend! Now is the time to get together with your friends and do what we girlfriends do best. Brunch! For the record, brunch is an escape from the monotony of work and life’s everyday responsibilities. It’s a time when us working professionals get a chance to be free, feel fancy, and look fabulous.

In honor of one of my favorite past times, I’ve created four stylish looks that you can wear on your next brunch date with your girlfriends (or beau). These are simple looks you can recreate yourself. Note that these outfits can be worn with flats if you don’t want to wear heels. With these inspirational outfits and style tips, you’ll be able to effortlessly get ready for brunch in style.

An oversized button down blouse and jeans is such a classic, simple outfit. You can’t go wrong with this look. Pair your top and jeans with a pair of hoops, heels, flats, or sneakers.

Add some dimension to your look with a statement dress, chunky heels, and statement bag. This stylish outfit choice isn’t too understated nor too flashy for a brunch date.

Pair a flounce blouse with a pair of skinny jeans and you’ll have a casual look with a heaping side of chic sophistication. Add statement earrings and a pair of pumps or pointed toe flats and you’re good to go.

I suggest we all invest in a printed maxi dress! Its the ultimate hassle free garment. You can pair a dress like this with flat sandals and a pair of hoops and be on your way!

*All of the looks above were created with the style app, Shoplook.
