Summer 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to the 2014 BET Awards

The 2014 BET Awards are taking over LA this weekend. And even though the red carpet doesn’t roll out until Sunday, the pre-award festivities are already well underway. Now I know you ladies weren’t really feeling last year’s looks, but hopefully today’s style suggestions will have you singing a different tune.

Taylor writes, “Greetings, I am attending the BET Awards/Experience this year and I’m not sure on what to wear. I would love to get inspiration and ideas on what to wear to the event.”

Hit up the BET Experience in a chic navy chiffon bodysuit and a pair of satin scallop shorts. Give this sassy number a subtle upgrade with a pair of B Brian Atwood Lucrezia Embroidered sandals, a python box clutch, ombré chain fringe earrings, and a fancy rhinestone horn ring.
