June is Texas means sweltering heat and long nights! Those long nights are perfect to get all dolled up to head out for a night on the town with your favorite ladies. Which is exactly what happened for this installment of Diversity Chic.
If you are new to the movement:
Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.
Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.
It worked out perfectly that we got invited to the Cadillac Style Driven event here in Dallas, because we took this opportunity to take Diversity Chic to a brand new level. The trend this time doesn’t pertain to anything in regards to our personal fashion style. It’s a beautiful focus on a beauty trend on different skin tones. Valery and I discovered months ago that we are both obsessed with the NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red. The stars aligned and this trend came together beautifully!
Let’s not waste any time!
About the Outfit
With the focus of this trend being all about the lips, I didn’t even concern myself with what I was planning on wearing. So course, I waited until the last minute to raid my closet to scramble for my outfit for ladies night. Luckily, this LulaRoe Cassie skirt was easy to pair just about any top with! If you don’t own any LulaRoe, stop what you’re doing and find the nearest pop shop going on in your area. You won’t regret it.
I wanted to stay a little cool, so I paired the pencil skirt with a flowy deep red top and black wedges for a classy measure. To jazz up the outfit, I went for a very accessory heavy look with my flashy Kendra Scott studs, a Bourbon and Boweties bangle, a homemade clutch from my Craft Exchange group, and of course my fabulous JORD wood watch.
For a ladies night out, I seriously was in the most comfortable outfit ever.
About the Trend
If there is one thing that every woman should own, it’s a crisp red lipstick that stops anybody in their tracks. A red that brings out the sexiest parts of your personality in the most subtle ways! NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red is a dream when it comes to all skin tones.
This bold and bright red is stunning and wears very well. I love that it’s so inexpensive and one of my favorites to wear even on a daily basis. Regardless of what color you pair it with, as you can see in our various outfits, this red easily blends well.
For less than $8, you can’t beat the Perfect Red.
