Beyonce rise perfume

Beyoncé's third fragrance, Rise, was just released last month. For Beyoncé fans, it's exciting news - the name is supposed to be inspired by the poetry of B's favorite poet, Maya Angelou, and the scent is a luminous floral featuring gold symphony orchid, apricot, bergamot, freesia, jasmine, and cashmere musk. The fragrance is available in several sizes, and the line also includes a body wash and shower gel.

In the ad campaign, Rise is being called "the scent of empowerment," so it's perfect for bringing out your own confidence and strength. So, inspired by the fragrance and B's own fearless attitude, I've put together three outfits to help you feel empowered and confident:

Outfit #1

Rise gold sequin dress


Product Info: Dress - Windsor Store, Heels - Go Jane, Bag - Dorothy Perkins, Ring - Neiman Marcus, Earrings - Charlotte Russe, Lip Gloss - Barney's

What better way to show your confidence than in an eye-catching gold sequin dress? (Just picture it without the accessories the girl is wearing in the photo and with our accessory picks instead!) Pair this one with sky-high ankle strap stilettos and a black zipper clutch. Add some subtle glitz with a cocktail ring and geometric earrings, then finish off the look with some extra shimmery lip gloss.

Outfit #2

Rise black tunic gold leggings


Product Info: Tunic - Target, Leggings - Topshop, Boots - New Look, Bag - ASOS, Necklace - Charlotte Russe, Earrings - Stella & Dot

For a bold look that you can wear day or night, try this next outfit. Slip on glittery gold leggings and a long black tunic, which we paired with black suede booties. Keep your jewelry simple but polished with a long gold pendant and black studs, then grab an edgy crossbody bag before you head out the door.

Outfit #3

Rise leather skirt graphic tee


Product Info: Tee - Etsy, Skirt - Nasty Gal, Shoes - Modcloth, Necklace - Accessorize, Nail Polish - Neiman Marcus, Hair - Elle.com

This next ensemble is easy to put together, but still packs a lot of personality. Pair a Beyoncé-inspired graphic tee with a faux leather skirt, then add some glamour with gold flats and a statement necklace. A black glitter polish gives pizzazz to your nails. Lastly, keep your beauty routine low-maintenance by playing up your hair's natural look and texture.
