BGG Stylist Obsession: Loup
Sometimes, we feel a little left out of the designer game. While we do love an $11, on-trend, "designer-inspired" skirt from F21 or the like as much as the next broke girl, we're always excited to discover a legit new design talent that won't leave us wistfully wondering how much credit card debt is too much. Enter Danielle Ribner, whose line Loup is our newest obsession. The designs meld American sportswear with Parisian style, while the pricetags don't ignore the current state of the worldwide economy.
Today, Danielle has constructed five different looks for five different occasions using pieces from her line. She has also graciously offered BGG readers 20% off sitewide until 8/29 with use of the promo code "BGGSUMMER." And if all of this weren't enough, Danielle is also giving away the Terry Muscle Tee and the Space Dye Play Skirt from her "Day-to-Night" look below. To be *entered to win, send us an email (email@example.com) telling us which of Danielle's 5 outfits is your favorite. Good luck!
Danielle's 5 Outfits for 5 Occasions:
Concert Date Night
It can be hard to find outfits that are both sexy and comfortable, but I like pairing dresses like this one with oxfords for a sexy vibe that still allows you to dance all night!
Wear the Coral Muscle Slit Dress with these Leopard Oxfords, this Coral and Beaded Brass Necklace, and this Two Snakes Ring (Editor's Note: other ring options that we love include this Crystal Chunk Cocktail Ring, this TomTom Interlock Upper Finger Ring, and this delicate Cut Out Heart Ring).
In summer's heat, cotton dresses and low heels are a must. This dress is great for staying cool, and it can be dressed up or down.
Dinner with the Girls
For those who want to wear maxis without a boho vibe, pair this dress with some modern neutrals to get a cool twist on a hippie look.
Wear this Heather Gray Bustier Maxi Dress with these Brown Leather Wedges (Editor's Note: we also like these Antik Leather Wooden Wedges, or even these Studded Cowboy Ankle Boots or Alexander Spiked Sneakers as we head into fall), this Modern Brass Necklace, and this Shiny Tan Pouch (Editor's Note: you can also cop this look for less at American Apparel).
Summer Evening Date
Loup is all about taking comfortable basics and making them wearable for every occasion. I love this plaid skirt and coral top as an evening summer date outfit, or for a drive along the coast. Pair the outfit with tan heels, a cross-body purse, and sunglasses for the perfect easy look.
Wear the Coral Breeze Raglan and the Plaid Play Skirt with these Tan and Black Sandals (Editor’s Note: we also like these Natan High Heel Sandals), these Rose Sunglasses (Editor’s Note: we also like these Robertson Sunglasses), and this Leather Mini Crossover Bag (Editor’s Note: we also like this ASOS Leather Two Tone Satchel).
I love pairing daytime outfits with nighttime accessories to give some edge and bring some toughness to a feminine look.
Wear this Terry Muscle Tee and this Space Dye Play Skirt with these Black Leather Booties (Editor's Note: We also love these MIGHTY Black Leather Zip Booties), these Black Sunglasses (Editor's Note: We also love these Elizabeth and James Lafayette Sunglasses and these UO Dancer Cateye Sunglasses), and this Black Leather Clutch.
*The contest ends 8/22.
