Karen Wazen played with pop hues to amp up her ensemble

Instead of going for a top + skirt set in neutral hues, Karen Wazen took the experimental route with her Etro separates. Both her jumper and pencil skirt featured horizontal stripes in vibrant hues, melting from pop pink to sunset yellow, a hint of violet, and ending in a brilliant shade of blue. The matchy-matchy look may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Wazen made sure to balance the outfit out with her accessories, which came in soothing earthy colors. The 35-year-old complemented her cheeky Etro separates with the Etro Vela Bag in a rich shade of brown. In case you missed it, the Vela Bag is among the most-talked about accessories this season, and has been spotted in different hues on a range of public personalities. While model Soo Joo Park and influencer Aimee Song were seen with a creamy white editions of the bag, Jihoon Kim opted for a black version of the It bag. Closer to home, Ola Farahat also favored the ivory shade, and paired it with the exact same outfit as Karen Wazen.

Karen Wazen’s fuss-free beauty look

Given the easy-breezy nature of her outfit, Karen Wazen completed her look with an au naturel beauty look. The multi-hyphenate styled her auburn locks in beach waves, and kept her makeup minimal with a hint of mascara, glowy skin, and a creamy pink lip color. A baby pink manicure added the perfect final touch.
