How To Dress Like Rebecca Romijn In 4 Bold, Summery Steps
After two decades in the film industry, two children, and upwards of three projects in the works for 2014, it seems impossible that Rebecca Romijn can also look incredibly glamorous at each red carpet event she attends. But somehow, the actress pulls it off with aplomb, striking the ideal balance between sophistication and sultry appeal. Granted, Ms. Romijn likely has a team of helpful hands to bring such brilliant looks to fruition, but the fact that the actress is unafraid to try new trends and rock styles that many women over the age of twenty would find daunting is quite admirable.
Enter Romijn's ensemble for the 2014 Television Critics Association fall press tour to promote her series Skin Wars. Romijn combined a beautiful painterly shift dress with a pair of head-turning neon orange heels and her signature bouncy blond locks for a look that critics may fail to find fault in. You would think that so many bold trends in one look would prove overwhelming, but due to the muted palette of Romijn's shift dress and her simple, light-handed makeup, the overall effect is one of fashionable know-how instead of visual overload. So if you're looking for a statement summer ensemble to wow your own critics, take a cue from Romijn with these four key pieces.
1. PAINTERLY PATTERNED SHIFT DRESS
Romijn's look is both creative and sophisticated thanks to her painterly sheath dress with its soft pattern. Try Clover Canyon's Santorini Stripe Crewneck Dress for a similar breezy yet elegant look.
2. NEON HEELS
Add a pop of color to your shift with a pair of neon-bright patent leather heels like Brian Atwood's Gwen Cutout Patent-Leather Sandals; the effect is both on-trend and eye-catching.
3. VOLUMINOUS LOCKS
Romijn's locks are voluminous and lightly curled, lending an effortlessly glamorous quality to her look. Achieve the look with Blow Pro Body by Blow's No Crunch Body Builder Mousse.
4. SUN-KISSED SKIN
Add a luminous, sun-touched glow like Romijn's to your face with a contouring palette including bronzer and illuminator. Tom Ford Beauty's Shade & Illuminate Palette is a beauty industry cult favorite for the ultra-flattering glow and sculpted features it gives cosmetics enthusiasts.
