Vixen Style: The Pantone Colors Of Spring Fashion

Each season, designers and retail brand looks to Pantone for the major colors of a particular season. This season is no different. What is different is the beautiful colors from either side of the intensity spectrum. Vixens who prefer pastels will be smitten with "Cockatoo Pantone," (a pale sea-foamy green) and "Bellflower Pantone" (a deep violet). Saucier Vixens will jump for the attention-grabbing spring colors: "Solar Power Pantone" (a bright yellow), "Tangerine Tango Pantone" (a vivid orange) and "Sodalite Blue Pantone" (a cobalt blue).

Keeping the Pantone color report in mind, we found hot spring fashions that will keep you on-trend, saucy and a little naughty!

There's a reason chinos went from the African safari to our everyday lives: they're so damn comfortable yet polished. This slim-cut pair is perfect for casual days, whether during the work week or weekend. And the berry blue hue? It will keep the look fun!

J.Crew Waverly Chino, $69.50

On first glance, this pencil dress may seem very demure and safe, but with its '40s-styling, it can be an understated yet sexy showstopper. Skip the sensible wedges for sky-high platform pumps, grab a tough clutch, wear your hair in a messy high bun to highlight the V-back and you're done!

ASOS Pencil Dress in Floral Print, $80.57

The peplum is one of the sexiest silhouettes of the season because it highlights the smallest part of a vixen's waist, but also camouflages any belly bulge. Pair this orange color with neutrals like white, black, tan or gray.

ASOS Peplum Top in Floral Lace, $50.13

For those vixens who are afraid of allover color, this color-block dress will put a little Pantone in their lives without overdoing it. And those cutouts not only provide built-in air conditioning, but also give a ton of sex appeal.

The color yellow has been popping up in the past two or three spring/summer seasons. And we don't want it to go anywhere! White polka-dots marry well with Solar Power yellow. Wear these with a blue chambray button-down for day and a slinky gray tank for a night out.

Current/Elliott Stiletto Crops, $218

Shoes are another great option when all-over color gives you the heeby-jeebies. These mid-heel, ankle-strap sandals will become a go-to shoe this summer despite the color because they work with shorts, dresses, skirts and crop pants.

J.Crew Lia Midheel Sandals, $238

The blouse has definitely made a comeback in recent seasons, and this simple one is just screaming for accessories and some color-blocking. Pile on the baubles and choose a bottom in a complementary color, like coral or hot pink.

Drop Back Sleeveless Shirt, $60

Add a little edge to a sexy librarian look with this wedge-sleeve top. A simple white pencil skirt will highlight the colors in the blouse, and top off the look with natural-colored leather shoes and handbag.

American Apparel Wedge Shoulder Chiffon Blouse, $48

The chain ankle-strap of this sandal toughens up the Bellflower violet color, but the Sodalite Blue tempers it. The result? A sandal that you will wear all summer with every and any thing.

Boutique 9 Women’s Doetzen Sandal, $130

Although it's not exactly friendly to wallets, this handbag is worth the splurge. The classic shape alone will keep it appropriate for many seasons to come. But we just can't get over how gosh, darn cute this purse is!

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
