Jennifer Lawrence Pulls Off Spring’s Hottest Hues

 

Jennifer Lawrence has gone from an up-and-coming teen star to a full-fledged Hollywood A-Lister seemingly overnight. Her style choices are often fairly safe, but elegantly classic. She chooses classic silhouettes that flatter her curves and shape to perfection. While not all of us may be able to pull off some of the silhouettes she’s so often seen in (i.e. the Dior stunner from the Oscar’s), it definitely is possible to take inspiration from her color choices.

 

 

Bright teal is one of our favorite colors for the season. The Paradise bandeau is not only similar to the teal dress Jennifer was spotted in, but the slight shimmer in the fabric adds an extra touch of glamour. Add in the aqua jewelry at the center as well as each hip and the swimsuit screams luxury swimwear. The color is also fairly easy to pull off for a few different skin tones. If you haven’t quite gotten the tan you’ve been hoping for yet, the color isn’t so bright that it washes you out. If you’re lucky enough to sport a beautiful golden tan, the bright color bounces off the tan and really pops.

 

 

While black may not be a “bright hue”, it’s a popular color choice for designer swimwear lovers across the board. It also (believe it or not) is a hard color to pull off while still managing to stand out. Jennifer Lawrence shows us a great way to wear the color- with some perfectly placed cutouts. The cutouts keep the color youthful and will ensure that you still stand out at the pool or beach. Sexy monokinis like Love Bound are a great option when trying to achieve that cutout effect. Otherwise, you could go for a sexy basic black bikini such as Truly, Madly, Deeply with extra detail like the gold hardware on the straps.

 

 

Jennifer Lawrence is definitely a fan of the basics- white and black. She definitely pulls those shades off with grace and class, but we also love it when she’s spotted in brighter hues. For this photo shoot, she paired a royal purple top with a burnt orange pencil skirt- a risky combination that really stood out. The color of her top is a showstopper, similar to Unforgettable. To achieve Jennifer’s look, pair the purple suit with some orange jewelry and accessories. A good tip- when looking to accessorize with opposite colors than what you’re wearing, shoot for complimentary colors (or colors opposite from one another on the color wheel) and then go one or two shades to the right or left to avoid looking like a school mascot (who often choose complimentary colors).

Selena Gomez Nails Spring’s Hottest Patterns

 

Selena Gomez is, no doubt, an up-and-coming Hollywood A-Lister. She began her career with Disney Channel, which sky-rocketed the young starlet to fame, but has continued to stay on the entertainment scene even after her career with Disney has come to a close. She’s recently blossomed into a style icon as well, and here at Lady Lux- we’re loving it. While she’s often pictured in sexy luxury swimwear, we figured we would feature some of our favorite patterns she’s been spotted in. Then, we’ll show you how to get Selena’s look using your own designer swimwear.

 

 

Selena’s first look features one of our favorite patterns for spring- floral. While Selena’s floral pattern features a lot of oranges and greens, Lady Lux wanted to brighten up the look with bright pinks and aqua- which screams springtime to us. The Secret Escape Dress has a similar breezy, casual look that Selena’s dress has. If you’re just looking for a standard swimsuit, however, you can opt for either the Floral Fantasy bandeau or the Secret Escape bikini- both of which feature the same lively pattern as the Secret Escape Dress. Overall, Selena’s look is kept minimal, with light makeup and swept back hair. Accessorize with beachy wedge sandals like Selena’s and throw on a sexy long necklace too. If you’re feeling daring- try a body chain for a similar, even sexier option instead of the long necklace!

 

 

The second look of Selena’s is definitely more of a sexy, nightclub ensemble. The sexy bustier top is completed with a black skirt with a thigh-high slit. For a similar sexy graphic pattern and cut- try the She’s Got A Way bikini. The sexy pattern is completed with gold hardware, which is reminiscent of the gold stitching in Selena’s bustier. The pattern also comes in a monokini- Love Bound. To complete your look, layer on a maxi skirt similar to Selena’s for walking around poolside. Dramatic eye makeup and bedhead waves will finish off the sexy, nightlife look.

Jennifer Lopez Nails it in Black, Pink, and Stripes

 

Jennifer Lopez has been on the pop culture scene for many years now. From her days as a dancer on “In Living Color”, to her early days as a pop star, to breaking into Hollywood as a leading actress in films such as “Maid in Manhattan” and “The Wedding Planner”, to now headlining world tours and starring as a judge on American Idol- there seems to be nothing slowing her down. Her style is ever-evolving and here at Lady Lux, we are loving witnessing the star’s style transformation. It has evolved from “girl from the Bronx” street style to true Hollywood icon glam. We love taking tips from Jennifer’s sense of style when completing our designer swimwear looks- so here are a few of our favorites.

 

 

Although basic, there’s a reason black is considered a staple in every wardrobe. Black is a classic color that does wonders for almost any body type, skin color, or hair color. The black dress that Jennifer recently wore to the Grammy’s was just that. A simple black color- amped up with sex appeal, much like the Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini by Lady Lux. The overall silhouette of Jennifer’s dress is so simple and so classic, but the sky-high slit adds a sexy edge to the cut. Truly, Madly, Deeply is a classic bikini, but the hardware and luxurious materials make the suit sexy and glam.

 

 

This pink look of Jennifer’s follows the same principles of her black dress above, yet turns it up a notch with the stunning pink color. Overall, the dress is classically cut, much like the Melt Away bikini. The bright pink color is eye-catching and adds both youthful and fun elements to the bikini as well as the dress. We also love how Jennifer kept her entire look simple by brushing her hair back from her face in a sleek ponytail. A great idea for the pool- when lounging in the hot sun in your luxury swimwear!

 

 

The last look of Jennifer’s that we loved was definitely more casual than the previous two looks. This striped dress of hers is, again, a classic look. The angled stripes are very reminiscent of the Ready Or Naut bikini. Stripes can be a difficult pattern to conquer, but by throwing them on at an angle- you’ll actually be doing yourself and your body a favor. The stripes on Ready Or Not actually bring the eye in to the cute little bow at the center. With stripes- follow Jennifer’s lead by keeping the rest of your look simple and toned down. You don’t want to compete with your cute striped bikini!

The Annual Met Gala Red Carpet Report

 

The annual star-studded Met Gala took place in New York City last night. From movie stars to models, everyone who was anyone seemed to make an appearance. With the theme of last night’s event being “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, we were sure to get an eyeful of some interesting ensembles. While some stars decided to tame down the “punk” theme, others went all out. Either way, we loved looking at some of the recurring trends from last night and thinking about how to carry those over to our designer swimwear.

 

 

One of our favorite looks of the night had to have been Miranda Kerr. While it’s true, Kerr looks amazing in just about anything she wears, she really pulled off her Michael Kors dress with ease and sophistication. The cutout trend seems to be huge for this current season. Whether you choose to rock that trend with a monokini like Love Bound or Drive Me Wild, you’ll be sure to nail it. Another trend Kerr is implying? The bandeau! Bandeau’s layered under cutout t-shirts or blouses are a great way to add some extra color or sparkle to your look. Fun bandeau‘s like Paradise and Heartless 2013 are great options to use when layering your look.

 

 

Another favorite of ours was Jessica Alba, who wore a gorgeous Tory Burch dress. The dress was leather and featured smaller, feminine cutouts as well as two larger, and more bold cutouts. We loved the overall effect of the pattern, similar to the Sipping Pretty bikini and monokini. Leather is also huge for this season, which is one of the many reasons we love the leather accents on luxury swimwear such as Drive Me Wild, Crazy For You, and Call On Me.

 

 

Being a punk theme, the color of choice seemed to be black (for obvious reasons). Black is a great, classic color. Jennifer Lawrence’s dress took classic to the next level. Her Christian Dior dress paid great homage to Old Hollywood starlets, while the color added to the “punk” feel. Black is always a great option, especially when it comes to your designer swimwear. Choices like Pretty Young Thing and Truly, Madly, Deeply are great staples to have in your wardrobe.

Taylor Swift Wow’s in Fresh Spring Colors

 

Now that it’s May, spring is officially in full bloom. From florals to pastels, there are so many great spring trends that are so youthful and fresh- it definitely puts you in the appropriate mood for the season. Taylor Swift is just one of the young starlets out there who seems to always look youthful and fresh- not just in her designer swimwear, but in her day-to-day routine. We love the colors that are trending for this season- lavender and coral. Not only has Taylor been seen wearing these shades numerous times, but we’ll show you how to get the look with Lady Lux Swimwear.

 

 

Lavender is just one of the many colors we’re obsessed with for spring. It’s a color that takes some confidence to wear and pull off. Taylor Swift has been seen in this youthful shade multiple times- at events as well as just strolling around. There are so many great options to pull off this color using your luxury swimwear. Our favorite is the Heaven Can’t Wait monokini- which is a flattering cut for just about anyone. There’s also the Heaven Can’t Wait bikini and the Heartless bandeau. All of which feature a fun snakeskin print on the lavender- adding just a bit of an edge to the swimwear.

 

 

Taylor is known for her old-Hollywood femininity. What’s more feminine than a girly shade of coral? Taylor seems to love all shades of coral. The brightest shades resemble the Pretty Young Thing bikini as well as the Lost In Love bikini while the softer shades resemble the Melt Away bikini. Either way, there isn’t a color more universally flattering than coral and, it too, is great for spring!

 

Whether you’re pulling off these colors in your day-to-day clothing or in your Lady Lux Swimwear, remember to fully accessorize from head to toe. That will complete your feminine look with these feminine colors!
