Coachella Weekend 1: Celebrity Style Watch

 

The first weekend of Coachella has already come and gone… With rocking performances from artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Vampire Weekend, The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, and Modest Mouse- it was definitely a weekend to remember. While you were dancing to some of your favorite musicians, you may have noticed a celebrity (or two) standing a few feet away. Coachella draws all types of celebrities- whether it’s actors, other musicians, or models, out to the blistering sun of the desert. Here at Lady Lux, we love paying attention to what all the celebrities wear while at Coachella. These celebrities tend to ditch their designer handbags and blowouts for a more bohemian and indie look. We’ve put together some of our favorite looks from the first weekend of Coachella.

 

 

Just because you’re in the desert doesn’t mean you can’t wear your designer swimwear. In fact, what better place to wear a bikini?! These must have been some of Alessandra Ambrosio’s exact thoughts, because we caught her wearing a white bikini underneath some of her clothing while at Coachella. We love how every year, Alessandra manages to maintain a casual look- without losing feminine touches, such as her breezy skirt. We found a similar look with pieces from Forever 21, Steve Madden, and American Eagle. Most importantly, we felt our Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini in white would work great underneath the denim button-down (left unbuttoned- of course) from American Eagle. Our favorite detail? The pop of red from the purse! It brings out the red in the skirt and also is a great statement piece!

 

 

If you’re looking for a way to transform your luxury swimwear into something a little edgier, try going for a look such as Sophia Bush’s. What drew us to this look were the thigh-high slits in the maxi skirt- adding a sexy touch to this tougher look. We found a similar patterned skirt at Brandy Melville. Rather than pairing the skirt with a solid black bikini top, we figured the slight pattern on the She’s Got A Way bikini top from Lady Lux complimented the pattern in the skirt. Besides, pattern-mixing is a great trend right off of the spring runways! The hardware in the She’s Got A Way top also works great with the look- coordinating perfectly with the black and gold necklace from Forever 21.

 

 

Here are just a few other of our favorite looks from Weekend 1- hopefully sparking some inspiration for you for Weekend 2! We can’t wait to see what Coachella part 2 has to offer and what celebs will be making an appearance!

Happy Birthday Brooklyn Decker

Brooklyn Decker is easily one of the hottest bikini models in the press lately. She’s been featured in Sports Illustrated, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour as well as major blockbuster hits such as “Just Go With It” and “Battleship”. On top of all of that, she’s married to tennis star Andy Roddick, easily making them one of the hottest celebrity couples. So, who wouldn’t want to be like Brooklyn? We figured we would pay homage to Ms. Decker (who turns 26 today) by featuring some of our favorite bikini shots of hers as well as show you how to get the Lady Lux luxury swimwear look from them.

 

 

Our first look of Brooklyn’s features her in a purple and yellow tie-dye bikini- very reminiscent of our Still The One bikini. Brooklyn is even wearing similar earrings! We love how our Still The One bikini features gold hardware, glamming the suit up just a bit to give it the edge it needs. The gold hardware goes perfectly with the other gold jewelry you’ll layer onto your look. This color palette is so hot and fresh for spring, and Brooklyn shows us just how hot it can look!

 

 

Rather than a staged photo of Brooklyn’s, we figured we would feature her in a more normal setting- in a bikini that she probably picked out herself. While at the pool in Miami, she chose a berry-colored bikini with gold detailing at the straps and hips. This look is almost identical to Lady Lux’s Unforgettable bikini. Our color is a little bit more of a true purple- which is great for spring. The bright color is sure to make you stand out while lounging poolside. Unforgettable also has the same gold detailing at the straps and the hips, but adds some side ties on the bottoms. These ties add some spice to the suit, setting your Lady Lux designer swimwear apart from other bikinis.

 

 

Is there anything that goes better with a fresh tan than a crisp, white bikini? Of course not! Brooklyn is wearing a white bikini that features some stone detailing at the straps and hips. Similar, is Lady Lux‘s Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini in white. While it may not feature stones, it features some gold hardware in geometric cutouts. Similar to Still The One, the gold makes this bikini super easy to accessorize!

 

Now that you have all of the tips to rock the Brooklyn Decker bikini look, maybe you can try it out this weekend at Coachella! There’s no better place to wear a bikini than the desert! Have fun this weekend!

Coachella Packing Essentials

Coachella is quickly approaching, and we’ve got your packing list right here! What better way to complete your look than with some designer swimwear by Lady Lux?! In this post we’ll show you how to style your favorite Lady Lux swimsuits into your Coachella look!

Our fist look is definitely one of our more feminine looks for the festival. We love this Cream drop-waist dress from River Island to layer over your Still The One bikini from Lady Lux. The sheer fabric is sexy- in that it reveals just a tiny pop of color from your Still The One bikini. Since this is the more feminine look, we figured the girl who wears this wouldn’t like to get too dirty… Boots keep your feet clean (as opposed to sandals) while you’re rockin’ out in the dusty, dirty desert. These brown boots from Aldo are perfect. Now, throw on a cute flower headband from Forever 21 to feel the flower power and some other cute accessories and you’re ready for the desert! Just don’t forget your sunglasses!

For those of you who aren’t quite ready to sport a dress in the desert, shorts are another option that can be styled equally as cute! This embroidered shrug from River Island immediately caught our eye. It’s a great way to add a little sparkle to your look without going full-on glam. By leaving it open, you can show off your Call On Me bikini by Lady Lux. This bikini has so many fun colors in it to brighten up the look! Between the shrug and the bikini, your bottoms can be basic. These vintage hot-pants from TopShop are perfect. Make sure your legs are looking sexy (you’re still a Lady Lux girl, after all) with some sky-high wedges from Aldo. The pop of color is great to break up all of your neutrals. Again, layer on some accessories and you’re ready to rock!

 

We hope these give you some ideas and at the very least spark your creativity to create your own looks! It can get hot in the desert, so make sure to pack your Lady Lux! You never know when you’ll need to cool off in our luxury swimwear!

Coachella Style Watch

Coachella (as well as the rest of the music festival season) is quickly approaching! As a girl, it seems like the focus of these festivals is what you wear, rather than the actual music being played. In the weeks leading up to, as well as the weeks following, you will find style watches for these festivals all over blogs, websites, magazines, and on television. So, this may lead you to ask yourself- what am I going to wear? Or better yet, how on Earth am I going to incorporate my Lady Lux swimsuit into my look??

Two cute ways to wear your bikini during the day.

You never know if you’ll be spontaneously invited to a pool party- so how else to better prepare yourself than to wear your bikini all day! Bikinis are comfortable and cool, both of which are important when standing in the desert heat for hours on end. On top of that, Lady Lux’s luxury swimwear is right on trend. We really love the look on the right with the overalls. It’s fresh and youthful, while still maintaining a sense of style. Your bikini will poke out a little on the top and at the sides- adding just a pop of color to your look. We recommend the Paradise bandeau for this look. It adds that bright pop of color you’re looking for and the bandeau style gives you just a little bit more coverage. If you’ve got rock star abs, by all means throw on some high-waisted shorts and any sort of sweater/cover-up that opens in the front to show off your bikini. We love the Still The One bikini for this look. The bright colors will make you stand out and the tie-dye effect is right on trend for the festival.

Some other fun styles to try out!

If you aren’t feeling bold enough to sport your bikini day-to-day, there are lots of other cute trends to try! From bold accessories like the bright scarf on the left, to embellishments and fine detailing like the shorts in the middle image, or even patterned maxi’s like the girl on the right- there’s something for everyone! You don’t need to sport your designer swimwear to make it on the style watches (but you may look a lot hotter trying)! Now throw on a pair of your coolest shades, get yourself a gorgeous tan, and you’re ready to conquer the music industry (well the music festivals at least).
