This was never an idea of a post. I don't understand fashion and I'm not quite sure I'm able to even write a sentence on the subject, but these past few days I have fallen in love time after time with Selena Gomez's outfits and I HAVE to share this. I know there has been quite a lot of articles stating they are as impressed as I am with her European promotional tour outfits. But I don't care, I will be another voice in the crowd. It's stronger than me. I can't control it. I mean LOOK AT HER:
If you know me a bit, you probably know I'm a hidden Selena Gomez hard-core fan. It's not something I scream out of my lungs, I mean, I don't have posters of her hanging on my walls. But I have loved her, followed her and rooted for her from Wizard's days 'til today, without fail. Despite all of the extremely trying times
(caugh Bieber caugh)...
I'm not quite sure what it is about her. There's an identification with her, an appreciation for how she always seemed very normal in interviews, growing up with her being around the same age as me combined with finding her gorgeous. Which means, I have always observed her style. Most times I loved it, many times I didn't. However, none of us have ever been able to define so clearly what style she has been going for as we can lately.
Revival is the name of her next album (one fans are extremely hyped up about, as it's her first non-Hollywood Records album) and I guess Revival is what the girl is trying to do with her public persona and fashion sense. And nailing it.
These are classic outfits, perfectly fitted, solid colors, delicate and timeless cuts which, combined, allows her to look effortlessly chic. It's as if she just came out of an old movie. Yet it still looks perfectly fitting for her age. The LBD in the first picture is one of my favorites, despite the simplicity of it all.
Can you see what her stylist is doing yet? Allowing her to wear timeless, feminine pieces, perfectly fitted to still accentuate her curves and tiny figure without overdoing it. The white dress is mostly covered up in the front, but once she turns around, there's a beautiful low cut which gives the look a bit more of a surprise effect and takes away the matronly look. This second black dress, on the other hand, is a bit more casual and kinda looks like something her Hollywood Transylvania character Mavis would wear, but the tights and the all black attire adds to the chic and classic she's been constantly going for.
This one is another one my little heart fell in love with and cannot stop thinking about. The big heavy midi skirt combined with the knitted cropped gives me a french effortless feminine vibe. Add that cute side hairstyle and I am dead.
However, as much as I would like to be all this is the "Revival era style" and credit this entirely to her stylist's good taste, I have seen traces of this sort of style slowly and increasingly show up in Selena's wardrobe for quite a while now. I am guessing it is now more prominent due to maybe, just maybe, her being more comfortable with herself now that she is older and completely free of Disney. Even in her casual outfits, you could already see the minimalistic, sober, simple yet chic lines pop up once in a while. And now it's here to stay.
Hoping dearly that she keeps this style and continues to amaze me with the beauty of simple, classic looks. Revival promises to be what I have been hoping for in every aspect, especially with her being freer to present herself as however she desires, and I cannot wait! I know I have stuck around for a reason!
