Countdown to Coachella: Part II

 

If you were lucky enough to attend the first weekend of Coachella- perhaps you can already expect certain things for weekend 2. If you missed the first weekend, but plan on attending the second (and final) weekend- never fear! We have everything you’ll need to know for surviving a whole weekend in the desert.

 

 

One of the most crucial things to start thinking about now (if you haven’t already started) is what you’re going to wear. Coachella is one of the biggest weekend of the year for style blogs around the world. Celebrities are all over the place and they usually have their outfits styled perfectly for the weekend. Occasionally, however, they slip up. When planning your outfits, keep in mind that it’s not only hot, but dirty. While a white dress may look cute when you put it on in the morning, it may not look that way by midnight.

 

By using your luxury swimwear effectively, you can stay fashionable and cool while partying under the desert sun. Bandeau’s are definitely in fashion now, allow you to stay cool, and even keep you prepared just in-case there’s an impromptu pool party you happen to be invited to. Lady Lux has a lot of great bandeau styles such as Floral Fantasy or Paradise. Throw them on with some trendy high-waisted shorts and you’re ready for the day! At the very least, by layering a sexy monokini or bikini top under a sheer shirt or dress, you reveal just enough to be sexy, while still staying a bit modest.

 

 

Once you’ve packed your designer swimwear, make sure to remember a few key other items to pack. Most importantly, pack lots of water. You’re going to be in the hot desert sun- meaning it’s easy to get dehydrated. Water keeps your skin glowing and healthy- making your Lady Lux swimwear look even better. Going hand in hand with water, pack plenty of sunscreen. Not only would a painful sunburn totally ruin your weekend, but sunscreen also keeps your skin youthful and healthy. Other key items to remember? Sunglasses, comfortable shoes, a camera, and a sweater. Believe it or not, it actually gets chilly at night in the desert.

 

Once you’ve packed the essentials- you should be ready to rock! Tomorrow starts the final weekend of Coachella for 2013, so enjoy it!

 

 

Get Julianne Hough’s Bikini Look with Lady Lux

 

Julianne Hough has definitely earned a name for herself in Hollywood. From starting out as a professional dancer on “Dancing With The Stars”, to becoming a full-fledged star in blockbuster hits such as “Footloose” and “Rock of Ages”, there’s so many reasons to idolize this young star. What we can’t get over, however, is her rock-hard abs she seems to enjoy showing off. Who wouldn’t? She just goes to show that dancing is one of the best forms of exercise out there- and has the body to prove it. So, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite bikini looks of Julianne’s and show you how to achieve the look using your own luxury swimwear.

 

 

This first look of Julianne’s was taken from a photo shoot for Self magazine. This bright coral color seems to be the color of the season for spring- as it’s popping up everywhere, especially in swimwear. The Lady Lux equivalent to Julianne’s look would be the Pretty Young Thing bikini in coral. We couldn’t help but notice the detailing at Julianne’s shoulders on her bikini top and thought the detailing on Pretty Young Thing had a similar look. The main difference? Lady Lux chooses to use gold rather than coral for the accents, giving it a more luxurious look and making the details pop more. Overall, they have a similar effect and make you yearn for the beach just by looking at their bright colors!

 

 

With her next look, it was hard to tell whether we were more drawn to the bikini, or her tight physique. Either way- we wanted to try and recreate the look as much as possible (abs and all) using our own designer swimwear. The pattern on Julianne’s bikini is so fun and unique- much like Lady Lux‘s Sipping Pretty bikini. Patterns are definitely in for spring- whether it’s stripes, florals, polka-dots, you name it! Both Julianne’s bikini and the Lady Lux version have unique patterns that are sure to grab the attention of anyone walking by, whether you’re lounging by one of the pools in Las Vegas or tanning on a beach in the Mediterranean.

 

 

Last, but not least, we fell in love with Julianne’s bright purple bikini she had on while splashing in the water. The bright color was so reminiscent of the Unforgettable bikini by Lady Lux. There’s a reason it’s called Unforgettable! While Julianne’s features neon yellow accents at the hips, the Lady Lux gold accents at both the shoulders and hips again, adds a bit more of a luxurious look to the bikini.

 

We absolutely love all of Julianne’s beach looks and can’t wait to see what combinations she’ll come out with next!

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!

Style Report: MTV Movie Awards

 

The MTV Movie Awards took place last night, and as with any star-studded event, we couldn’t help but to immediately check the red carpet re-caps. We pulled some of our favorite looks and wanted to share them with you as well as some tips to pull off some of the looks using your Lady Lux designer swimwear.

 

 

One major trend we saw all over the red carpet was the white-on-white look. From celebrities such as Jordana Brewster, Karlie Kloss, and even a Kardashian- everyone seemed to be wanting a piece of this simple, chic look. Model Karlie Kloss was able to do the impossible… Pull off all-white, a crop top, and cutouts all in one! I guess there’s a reason why she’s one of the top models in the whole world… Besides Karlie, we also really liked Kendall Jenner’s white and cream ensemble. The cream skirt was really flattering and broke up the look just a bit. Our only complaint? Her makeup! The nude lipstick makes her lips disappear into her face- not cute! Wanna try out this look with your luxury swimwear? Try Lady Lux’s Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini!

 

 

Another huge trend of the MTV red carpet? Cutouts! Whether it was on a crop top or a dress, cutouts were huge. Again, we loved model Karlie Kloss’s white crop top with the cutout. Or, maybe we were in love with her abs… Either way- she nailed the look. Emma Watson’s dress was super cute and age appropriate for her. She always seems to look so polished. An easy way to pull off this trend with your Lady Lux swimwear? Try a monokini! The cutouts on the monokini are right on trend and super sexy for lounging poolside. The Love Bound monokini, Heaven Can’t Wait monokini, Drive Me Wild monokini, and Sipping Pretty monokini are all great monokini options that Lady Lux offers, giving you so many hot choices!

Noticeably absent from this year’s awards show was Katy Perry… We were so sad that she had to miss out! We always love seeing what she has to wear!

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!
