Guest Style Inspiration: What to Wear to Brooklyn Museum’s Target 1st Saturdays

Today’s Joy Adaeze from Joy Loves Fashion is blessing us with another of her Style Inspirations! This one is for Brooklyn’s 1st Saturdays, which goes down every 1st Saturday of the month (which means there’s one tomorrow–will you pop by?).
At any rate, Amberley writes, “I’m a huge fan of the Fashion Bomb Daily, and I have been following the blog for years! Please keep up the good work! I was wondering if you could help me figure out what to wear to 1st Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!”
Joy says, “First Saturdays also call for daring and unique looks, which is what Brooklyn style is all about. Here are 3 fierce outfit ideas:”

This look has a boho edge that is perfect for summer. Crop/bra tops are so hot right now, and I love this Mara Hoffman bustier top paired with vintage high waist pants. This TopShop jean jacket makes a great layering piece (and the light wash is perfect for summer). Accessorize with a turban headband, like this one from Lanvin, a gold statement ring, and a vibrant Marc by Marc Jacobs watch for a pop of color. These L.A.M.B. platforms finish off the look.”

“This is look is for all my sexy, sporty ladies! This French Connection striped dress is perfect with a varsity jacket and red Marc by Marc wedge sneakers– which adds a fabulous pop when paired with black.”

” This 3.1 Phillip Lim clutch is sleek yet sporty to match the vibe of the look. Add some fun accessories, like this Never Say Never double finger ring and a chunky gold chain. A sexy red lip-and you’re good to go!”

“Look 3 is sleek and sophisticated, with an edge. The red blazer is amazing paired with these Michael Kors leopard shorts. Add a slouchy white tank underneath for a relaxed feel.”

This Marc Jacobs clutch adds a brilliant pop of color. I love L.A.M.B. heels because they are stylish and unique, as well as affordable. These black wedges are a great compliment to the shorts. Pile on fun accessories like gold rings, a statement necklace, and Alexander Wang cat eye sunglasses. A touch of red lipgloss is shimmery and sexy for a summer night.”

(Side note: You can find this exact red blazer from Red or Dead here.)

“So there you have it- 3 looks for Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday that will have you looking fierce and fashionable while taking in the arts. I’ll see you there!”
