Now, I don’t know about you but I live for that drama genre in Netflix and Prime. I started watching Dynasty in mid-May this year and finished the first and the second season in 6 days. It was that addicting.
Finding Dynasty from hundreds upon hundreds of great drama series was among some of the best things that summer.
I would have discovered this gem long ago if (-blaming time) CW promoted it enough to reach my Instagram. Or even Twitter. I literally found out about Dynasty from one of those Netflix recommendations accounts on IG that popped in my explore page.
It took only a short video consisting of some of the most iconic moments throughout the first season for me to fall in love with the character of Fallon Carrington and Cristal Flores/Carrington.
Cristal not making it to the second season was heartbreaking, I’ll admit but the high dose of drama was enough to help me reach the ending. The second was crazy CRAZY with revelations, betrayals and secrets.
(No idea, what Dynasty is about? I got you! Or maybe Wikipedia, but whatever.)
Of the two seasons, I think the first one was better with the whole rivalry between the series’ central female characters, Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) and Cristal Flores (Nathalie Kelley) for power in the business world and favour of patriarch Blake Carrington.
Cristal and Fallon serve as foils of each other when it comes to style. Fallon, the bold and business savvy heiress of Blake, grew up drenched in the lifestyle of the 1% and thus has a versatile Gucci approach to getting dressed. While Cristal, Blake Carrington’s second wife and COO of CA, who is much more feminine, is a pro at looking polished and put together with neutrals and pastels.
Between these two power-loving females, I chose Fallon Carrington, the epitome of business gal style as inspiration for an outfit.
I didn’t want to dress as her style replica or copy her exact look from one of the episodes. Which is why I picked LFOT’s brand colours as the base colours of the outfit.
I decided to go with Blazer and Pants as they are Fallon’s strongest suit. I decided to pair my modest black suit with an embellished tie-neck tulle blouse to create a bit of voluminous effect with the sleeve as Fallon’s style is much bolder than just classic colours. The shoulder pads of the blazer also pointed towards the original Dynasty’s 80s fashion.
Fallon is also known for keeping up with the trends so I accessorised the suit and blouse with pointed white mules and b&w croc-embossed satchel bag.
The best part of this outfit for me is the rhinestone bee brooch. I fell in love with the brooch the minute I saw it (and is now probably my favourite accessory). It appeared perfect for this blog post, symbolising Fallon’s queen bee persona.
I hate the fact that Dynasty’s not gonna appear until 2020 and honestly, it’s pissing me off. I mean- I waited months for this to happen?!
If you haven’t watched season 1 & 2 and you are not in the US, you have plenty of time right now to watch the two seasons as the third season will be coming up on Netflix after the season finale in May or possibly even June 2020. If you wanna skip, mark my words, do not skip episode 1 of season 1! No matter what!
Do you think Dynasty will still stay underrated or the 3rd Cristal’s the charm? If you haven’t seen a single episode, do you feel tempted now? Also, tell me how close I got to Fallon’s style!
