Nontraditional Animal Print
You can already see from the first episode of Empire, that Cookie loves animal print. It’s bold and makes it’s own statement. No words needed!
Velvet, silk, chiffon are just some textures that you will spot on Cookie and I’m sure there’s more to come. Winter is the perfect time to find these seasonal pieces.
Again, Cookie walked out of prison with a fur coat on and has been seen wearing different fur combinations throughout the episode. Can we blame her? Fur makes any outfit look rich.
Classic Animal Print
Basic animal print is another piece to add to your “Cookie-inspired” wardrobe. Unlike the first print in this list, there are no added patterns just the beauty of animal skins, faux of course.
Cookie demands attention and the pant suit works for her when she is commanding respect. She keeps the outfit cool and feminine.
Iconic Gold Hoops
Cookie is still an around the way girl, so hoop earrings are necessary but they must be different. Choose hoops that stand out and make a statement.
Did we already mention fur? I mean, it’s what Cookie is known for (yes even after one episode). This time try something with more coverage than the stall. Go full length fur if you feel like stepping out the box.
Cookie loves her gold accessories. From belts, to bracelets and shoes. Gold is iconic, goes with everything pretty well and can instantly switch any outfit from dull to fab.
Detailed Trench Coat
Don’t just put on your average trench coat. Cookie is no where near average. Look at details, shape and blend of color. It’s a must to stand out at all times and a detailed trench accomplishes that.
