Selena is the queen of elevating basic looks into stunning ones. Her minimalistic style is often accompanied by staple pieces and pops of elegance that make her looks standout whether on the runway or on the street. In the look above, for instance, Selena turned this basic denim skirt and white top into an amazing look by pairing it with snakeskin shoes, a black overcoat, and a patterned handbag with pop of pink.
With looks like these, Selena taught us how to style and accessorize a basic look to elevate it into an Instagram-worthy one. The key here is mixing basics (like denim, for instance) with strong pieces that will stand out against that fabrics (like the snakeskin shoes). Doing so takes this casual look to the next level — a sort of “day to night” situation.
How to Rock the Perfect Red Lip
Selena is truly the queen of red lips. She often wears them on the red carpet and consistently slays them. Because unlike others, she knows exactly how to perfectly style a red lip, and now, so do we.
When Selena wears a red lip, she lets it speak for itself. She doesn’t overcomplicate the rest of her beauty routine. Instead, with a red lip, she chooses to do the rest of her makeup very simple: Small wing, light smokey eye, and a little blush pull it all together. With her makeup pretty basic, she’ll then pair the red lip with some stunning earrings or jewelry that match the theme of the occasion.
Red lips are certainly hard to slay. They’re bold, after all, and not the easiest option for an everyday look. But Selena has showed how to perfectly achieve a red lip while still looking classy and elegant, and that’s a tip you can use on a night out or for your next Instagram selfie.
