You probably already know about the amazing visual album that Beyoncé released almost 4 months ago (wow, has it really been that long?), but just in case it’s slipped you by—Beyoncé unexpectedly released her latest album in 2013 with music videos to accompany every single track, which she somehow managed to produce in complete secrecy! In the album she shamelessly expresses her life experiences, taking her independent woman image to another level and proving that she can be happily married with a beautiful child, yet still undeniably sexy. Obviously Beyoncé is an extremely talented performer, but on top of that she absolutely kills it in the style department. Many of the videos in the album featured extravagant costumes, but we think her styling in XO is a bit more attainable.

When recreating a look, always start with the basics. We found these medium wash, ripped jeans at French Connection and this loose scoop neck tank at Net-A-Porter.

Can’t forget the shoes! A black chunky bootie is great for almost any occasion. Cute and comfortable—never thought I’d see the day!

Now for the exciting part–statement jewellery. Due to Beyoncé’s recent obsession, we decided to stick with Topshop for the jewellery in this post. Bold chains are the perfect way to dress up a basic outfit. Topshop has the perfect coin charm necklace like she’s wearing in the video.

For those true fans out there, here are a few finishing touches to complete Queen B’s look. A lace bralette is always a nice touch (and usually necessary support) for those tank tops that scoop low under the arms. For those of you lucky humans who can pull off pastel nails, here’s a great yellow polish from—you guessed it—Topshop.
