OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: LEMONADE CRAZE

By Jesse L Brooks

 

Blame it on Beyonce or maybe the beautiful weather we've been having, but we are seriously obsessed with all things lemonade.
The sunny yellow shade is not only perfect for spring and summer, it also instantly boosts your mood.
That's why the star of our look is all about bringing the lemony sunshine. Nodding to the designer's appreciation for architecture and design, Carolina Herrera staged her Spring '18 show in the Sculpture Garden of New York's Museum of Modern Art. With this venue in mind, the collection is devoted to uplifting color – this midi dress has been made by the label's couture trained artisans from silk-faille to make the 'Electric Yellow' hue appear as bright as possible. The sleeves are gently gathered to frame your décolletage and are to be worn slightly off the shoulder. Tying in some extra pops of color via our accessories, we decided to add a little pink to our lemonade. Striking the perfect balance between timeless elegance and feminine glamour, Casadei is an expert in fashioning statement styles for the modern woman. These multicoloured leather and velvet floral embroidered sandals from Casadei features an open toe, a platform sole, an ankle strap with a side buckle fastening and a high block heel. For an added splash of fuchsia, we went bold with the bag.  All of California based brand Kayu's bags are handcrafted by expert artisans using only natural materials. Topped with stone embellishments, this clutch is woven from straw and opens to a fully-lined interior with just enough space for your cell phone, cards and keys. Our ensemble is already looking so sweet and flirty, but it could use a touch of bling. Keeping up with the warm weather theme, there is no escaping buzzing bees when the temperature heats up. The bee is one of Gucci's original house codes, now reimagined as statement earrings. They are crafted in Italy with grey, orange and grey crystals set into the body, alongside two fuchsia-pink stones as eyes, and are finished with a chunky faux-pearl drop that is adorned with the brand's signature GG emblem. For beauty, no product seemed better fitting than Maybelline's latest eyeshadow palette (it even inspired the name for our  look!) A fresh take on the classic color, these pigmented shades offer endless possibilities. Softer hues to highlight, darker shades to amplify and define, and bright pops of citrus inspired colors to make your eyes stand out! Whether you wear this look to a festive work event, or simply out on the town, you are sure to start a 'Lemonade Craze' wherever you may go.
