Who are your fashion crushes? You know – those ladies (or guys!) who dress the way you only wish you could dress? Who look effortlessly fashionable whenever they go out? They could be your bloggers, stars, fashion designers – even your friends or coworkers! Here at Bullet Blues we have a million little fashion crushes, but none of them crush that laid-back LA style quite like Janel Parrish.
A competitor on the latest season of Dancing With the Stars and a star of the uber-stylish ABC Family whodunnit Pretty Little Liars, Janel Parrish recently graced the cover of the February issue of the online publication Nation-Alist alongside the Bullet Blues Fox Azur Jean. She looks super polished and pretty on the cover in a pink peplum top, but here at Bullet blues we love Parrish best when she’s letting her casual cali girl flag fly.
Even when leaving an intense workout (you know those DWTS rehearsals aren’t a cakewalk!) Janel Parrish looks pulled-together in this punky look.
Start with a pair of slinky black jeans befitting a rock star, like Bullet Blues’ Parisien Chic Skinny Cigarette Jean; then throw your coolest band t (Led Zeppelin here, because Zeppelin) over a lacy red bra. A flannel in a contrasting color tied around your waist adds a trendy, graphic touch. Complete the look with a pair of studded combat boots and a strong red lip for a look that’s great for class, running errands, or a casual concert.
Next time you’re tempted to run to Target for toilet paper in a groutfit of dirty Uggs and holey sweatpants, take a page out of Parrish’s playbook and step up your game with some slip-on leather kicks and a pair of comfy but super-cool patterned harem pants. When paired with an simple but stylish top like Bullet Blues Priscile Asymmetric Top, you’ll have a look that feels like sweatpants and Uggs but looks like a million bucks.
Finish the look with a few sparkly accessories, a statement bag in a hot color, and a coat of pretty pink lip gloss.
Where are you going all gussied up, Janel? Here Parrish pairs a sophisticated and simple dress in a beautiful hue with some edgy accessories (that Trapeze bag again!) and a pretty, polished beauty look that’s perfect for a fancy date or a night on the town.
Start with the perf purple dress, like Bullet Blues’ Cecile Long Sleeve Dress in violet, then add a bunch of edgy black accessories, like black cut-out booties, a black statement necklace, and trendy spiked bar earrings. Finish the look with a strong eye like, like a smoky eye with a hint of purple. Grab your slouchy bag and you’re ready to hit the town with a hot date or your best girlfriends.
