Must See Looks: August
We scoured the web looking for this week’s CW Fashion: Must See Looks.
Here’s what we’ve found. Let us know below what you think of all the looks and vote for your favorite below.
Our first must see look is Hart of Dixie star Jaime King. She attended the 11th annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at The London Hotel on Wednesday, August 8th in West Hollywood.
Jaime wore a red Marchesa dress, jeweled clutch and nude Jimmy Choo shoes.
What I think…
This is my favorite look of the week. The color of the dress is gorgeous on her skin tone and she paired it with the perfect jeweled purse and simple heels. I think that the peplum part of dress works on Jaime’s body style very well, although I’m not sure how it would look on myself or others who don’t have a models’ body especially considering the dress is very sheer. This is my favorite look, but not the most wearable look of the three.
One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush also attended the 11th annual InStyle Summer Soiree on Wednesday, August 8th in West Hollywood and is our next must see look. Sophia showed up in Ted Baker’s colorful separates, Nola Singer statement jewels and an awesome striped Edie Parker clutch.
What I think…
I wrote about Jaime King’s look being my favorite but not the most wearable look, this outfit that Sophia is wearing is definitely something I could see myself wearing. I love the orange top. (I’ve expressed my love for orange for a long time. Read here.) I also love the A-line floral, butterfly skirt paired with the striped clutch. I love the idea of mixing and matching and I think that the striped clutch goes perfect with this look. I also love the dark lip and her ombre hair parted down the middle. However, I’m not in love with the multiple flower rings, I don’t think with the brightness of the skirt with these particular rings really works. Although over all, I think she looks gorgeous!
Our last must see look is Katie Cassidy. She is known for her roles on Supernatural, Gossip Girl and the new series Arrow coming this Fall. Katie attended Carbon Audio’s Zooka Launch Party on Friday, August 3rd in West Hollywood. She wore a white boyfriend blazer teamed with a white sheer ribbed top and black skinny pants. Katie finished off her look with a selection of jewelry, an oversized snakeskin clutch, and black leather sandals with multiple cord-like ankle straps by Rick Owens.
What I think…
First off I’m really glad that Katie Cassidy is back on The CW. I think she’s a great actress and a she has great style. This outfit she is wearing here is casual and very basic. I love the pairing of black and white, it’s as simple as you can get and when done well is amazing. At first glance I thought she looked really cute. I would wear something like this. The whole black bra/sheer white shirt combo is a good look and very ‘in’ lately. I absolutely love the over sized snakeskin clutch and the Rick Owens heels. My only criticism is that her pants and blazer are a little big on her. Also the amazing cord-like ankle straps on her shoes completely blend in with her black pants. I think that this outfit could have been way better had she taken off the blazer and worn a pencil skirt instead of those pants in order to show off those amazing shoes. What do you guys think?
