If you haven’t heard of them all ready, then take note. Perlas Negras is an all-female Brazilian rap group you should definitely have on repeat and you MUST take fashion-inspo from. The trio from Rio de Janeiro effortlessly mix-and-match jerseys with sequins and booty shorts with layers of gold chain — a style that is the ultimate marriage of cool meets sexy.

Off the Chain

Teens Mariana Alves, Alice Coelho and Jennifer Loiola (L to R) bring ordinary chains to a whole other level. Make gold the centerpiece by layering over a simple black ensemble.

Crème de la Crop

Yes, we all love the crop top. What Perlas Negras does is take this overtly sexy style and give it a girlie flair with pleated skirts, pastels and lace.

Want to scream self-confidence? Wear red. Brave enough to amp it up a bit? Take a cue from this trio and wear red in a bustier, bodycon dress or top with cutouts. Extra points if you add some sassy finger pointing.  ☝️ ?

Black and white is super-sexy and ultra chic, especially when you play with patterns like stripes and chevrons.

Cool B&W

You know you want to be on their fashion team with threads like these. Glam up sporty attire by pairing a jersey with sequin shorts or just go for the gold in a sequin, jerseys-inspired dress.

Short Shorts

Cutoffs are more than beachwear. Pair leather shorts with a crop top for a date-night worthy outfit. Choose denim with a long-sleeved graphic tee when cruisin’ around the farmers’ market. And opt for blinged out with studs and a graphic sweater when heading to a concert.

Graphic Ts

Sure, plain white T’s are a staple. But give this classic an update by getting one with a giant image of your fave singer.

Just throw some reggaeton in the background and the cake is right at home.

And the more lights and crystals, the better, obvi.

We all have that friend who’s cake was half of her quince budget.

Stacking your cake layers is so basic.

It’s called deconstruction and it is all the rave right now. #getittogether

When we pick a theme, we fully commit.

Even if we might second guess it later, there is no turning back.

It’s all about the presentation.
