How to Create a Jersey Shore Look
Audra Lowe: The Jersey Shore showcase 20 some things as they really party their way through a seaside New Jersey Summer. Well now their style, heavy on gravity defying hair and deeply revealing tops all that’s catching on and believe it or not there are some ways to get these styles without going overboard. So we set Rhiannon out to get the Jersey shore make it over, take a look at her as she was a good sport with this whole thing.
Rhiannon Ally: The cast of MTV’s The Jersey Shore is making their mark on fashion. The guys are easy enough to copy with tanning, hair gel and Ed Hardy apparel but it’s the ladies look that maybe too bold for some. We set out to find if the Jersey Shore look is possible without going to the deepened of sexy.
First we needed the hair. Snooky’s infamous poof has made headlines so we headed to the salon for some mega teasing and some hair spray. Now that the look is complete, it’s all about the clothes. What better place than New Jersey to get the Jersey Shore look. We met up with Dawn Del Russo, owner of Belladonna's Boutique to get her tips on obtaining that Jersey Shore look but in a more conservative way.
Dawn Del Russo: A good dress to start with is something with some already has some detail on the top like this one with the gold stud detail and you could wear two little similar necklaces gold to match the gold or if it’s silver to silver. But it’s not just dresses that can give you that shore flare. These are liquid leggings and these are probably one of the hottest looks on the show right now. They look like leather pants with they're leggings and the best way to wear this is with a longer cup you want the cover at the back.
Rhiannon Ally: And with many of the looks being pretty fitted, you want the right undergarments.
Dawn Del Russo: It is the key to wearing any of these outfits is to find the right garments to wear, the first one that I suggest is specially under some of the blouses are these—they’re called hip tees and what they do is they cover if your shirt is too short they go a little bit longer so you’ll wear them on your hip and this pretty lace sticks out so it still looks like it’s still part of the shirt but your stomach is not showing.
Rhiannon Ally: If you think some body parts are on his fit or flattering as you’d like, there is an option.
Dawn Del Russo: These are called a bubble band and what they are is a thigh shaper but also a booty shaper so you’ll wear this it goes right below at the butt and it gives a little bit of lift in the back and then it also slims the thigh.
Rhiannon Ally: As far as keeping bra straps in check.
Dawn Del Russo: If you are trying to achieve that Jersey shore style. Look for something with a little bit thicker strap to also hide the bra straps because you don’t want those showing.
Rhiannon Ally: Dawn also suggest the chicken cutlet type bra inserts to eliminate the lines and help enhance the chest area. She also shows these covers to help pull off the types of Tops, Jay Wow has been known to wear.
Dawn Del Russo: So Snooky would wear an outfit like this. It is a sweater material but it’s a thin lightweight sweater material so it can be worn into the summer months without feeling too hot. It has a scoop neckline right here which is a little bit higher up but I think it’s better for achieving the look without being too revealing.
Rhiannon Ally: Finally, it was my time to give the style a try.
Dawn Del Russo: Wow, oh my God I can’t believe it. You look great.
Rhiannon Ally: Am I ready to join the cast already?
Dawn Del Russo: Absolutely.
Rhiannon Ally: I feel like I’m straight out of the show.
Dawn Del Russo: You definitely look like it.
Rhiannon Ally: Will someone actually wear this in real life?
Dawn Del Russo: The way we did it, it works a little bit better because the leopards in the middle, so it draws you in. There’s black and the sides make you look nice and slim. The way the shoulders are brings the shoulder line into so it slims its top shoulders. Finally, pairing with the pair of leggings keeps it from looking way too short.
Rhiannon Ally: Dawn also says burking the Jersey Shore type style is all about the accessories. The hot trend right now is piling on the bracelets, plus don’t forget hoop earrings as well as big bags, belts and fabulous shoes. She also says if you don’t feel comfortable wearing animal print clothing, try adding smaller elements like hair bows.
Rhiannon Ally: Now this is more like it I feel a little conservative for Jersey Shore standards but I feel like this is the look that women at home would really like.
Dawn Del Russo: It’s perfect. It achieves everything that they have but it makes you look sophisticated and really pull together. The rouging on here is great for adding women because it hides anything you want to hide but it is very attractive and draws you in. A strap like this like I said, is a thicker strap so hide you the bra strap you’re not seeing those clear bra stripes or anything like that and the length on it finally is right above the knee so it’s perfect.
Rhiannon Ally: It’s like I’m ready to go to dinner with my husband.
Dawn Del Russo: Yes.
Rhiannon Ally: These accessories are nice as well.
Dawn Del Russo: These accessories give it more of that fun shore look adding the silver necklaces a little bit more, bracelets, a bigger ring. That really gives you that look. So if you want you still want to add that look with a nice simple black dress that you already have go with the accessories.
Rhiannon Ally: And I wouldn’t have went for maybe a red or a black bag is this a good color?
Dawn Del Russo: It’s perfect. it really pops it brings everything out and you’ll see against black it really looks nice.
Rhiannon Ally: Now I think I’m ready for a trip to the Shore. For Better I’m Rhiannon.
Audra Lowe: Not the fist pump. We definitely lost her with the fist pump. Thank you so much Rhiannon and Jersey Shore fever is spreading with the show going global airing in more than 30 countries. Right here in the states the shows new season with the cast of Miami Beach starts the summer.
