Many actresses light up the red carpet, but one actress consistently stands out from the crowd thanks to her glowing skin, gorgeous smile, and amazing sense of style: Joy Bryant, the subject of our latest It Girl story! So, what is it about Joy’s style that makes her so noteworthy? The list is long but to sum up, Joy has a cool, electric sense of style that feels really fresh. Plus, she puts her own personal spin on every outfit! On that note, if you love Joy’s personal style as much as we do, make sure you read on for all the need-to-know details on what our latest It Girl wears and how she wears it!
1. We all know that summer comes and goes quickly and sometimes that means we don’t put our favorite summer clothes to best use! Accordingly, we love the look Joy put together for a Coach benefit event in Santa Monica back in April. Joy paired a summery yellow sun dress with a denim jacket and Ralph Lauren cowboy boots. Not only has she given her feminine frock a rugged twist with these extras, but she has ensured she can wear her pretty sun dress almost all year round. Inspired? Put together your own season-friendly look by pairing Topshop’s Buttercup Print Midi Dress ($100) with Current/Elliott’s The Snap Stretch Denim Jacket ($274). To finish, add Urban Renewal’s Vintage Cowboy Boots ($79).
2. One of the things we love most about Joy is her ability to put together chic yet casual ensembles. For instance, earlier this month, Joy was spotted at an event in Miami wearing a sequined top, a distressed denim skirt, and chunky leather sandals. By balancing her glamorous top with a casual skirt, Joy has created an outfit that works just as well for a daytime cocktail party as it does for a night out with your best friends. To try a similarly cool look, pick up Vince’s Sequined Crepe Top ($295) and pair it with Twenty8Twelve’s McLaren Denim Mini Skirt ($49.50). Then, simply add Report Signature’s Carle Ultra Platform Sandals ($232.73).
3. A little black dress is a wardrobe staple so we are always pleased to find fresh LBD inspiration to muse over! Earlier this month, Joy wore an embellished LBD to the CFDA Awards in New York City. We really like the way Joy has given her ensemble a personal twist by picking a dress with texture instead of opting for something safe. These interesting details—along with her statement accessories—ensure that Joy stands out on the red carpet! You can create an equally chic look by pairing Nicole Miller’s Eva Stretch Lace Halter Dress ($400) or Pins & Needles’ Lace Dress ($49.99) with BCBGMaxAzria’s Eddina Sandals ($96.25) and Saba’s Snake Clutch ($149).
4. Summer days call for easy, breezy ensembles, which is why we love the look Joy put together for the Emmy screening of Parenthood in North Hollywood back in May. Her floral shirt dress is the perfect summer piece as it is pretty, full of life, and easy to slip into. And by adding a pair of chunky heels and pulling her hair back, Joy has turned it into the perfect party dress! You can compose a similarly stylish look by picking up Patterson J. Kincaid’s Harlow Belted Dress ($148) or Rebecca Taylor’s Pom Pom Tunic Dress ($255.50). Nine West’s Vampy Strappy Platform Sandals ($48.92) and JJ Winters’ Mini Fringe Bag ($165) will finish the look off perfectly!
