The number of roses is dwindling on The Bachelorette as Desiree Hartsock comes closer to the end of her quest for love. All season long, we’re watching along with former Bachelorette Emily Maynard, who is sharing her top outfit picks exclusively with InStyle.com each week. Last night’s episode was one of Maynard’s favorites because Des wore her favorite look: Sequins! “Since doing this blog, it’s become clear to me that I love sequins way too much. You could sew them on a sleeping bag, tell me it’s a dress, and I would have to have it in my closet,” Maynard told us. “That explains my obsession with Desiree’s striped sequins skirt on her date with Chris this week.” See more of Maynard’s favorite looks from last night (both sparkly and subdued) by clicking through the gallery, then check back every week for updates.
The international fun continued on last night’s episode of The Bachelorette as Desiree Hartsock and her remaining eight suitors headed to Barcelona, Spain. Former Bachelorette and fashion lover Emily Maynard is sharing her favorite looks from each week exclusively with InStyle.com, and she took note that the guys still dressed the same even though temperatures were warmer than the previous episode‘s location of Munich, Germany. “It’s the second week in a row they’re all wearing the same zip-up hoodie,” Maynard said. “It’s so funny because a group of girls would never wear matching clothes!” But it’s not just the boys Maynard focused on—she narrowed down her favorite Des outfits from this week’s episode to share with us.

On last night’s episode of The Bachelorette, Desiree and her remaining suitors jetted overseas for some international adventures in Munich, Germany. With the change in temperatures from the show’s usual setting in sunny Los Angeles, a change in clothing styles was necessary as well. Everyone had a chance to don their finest cold-weather attire, and former Bachelorette Emily Maynard made note of her favorite looks, which she’s sharing exclusively with InStyle.com all season long. “I thought it was so funny that all the guys were wearing the exact same zipped hoodie,” Maynard said. “That would never happen on The Bachelor, because a group of girls would never all wear the same jacket!” While the men matched, Desiree stood out, be it at dinner in a German palace, on a snow day, or at the rose ceremony.

Emily Maynard has always been a fan of the Charlotte-based jewelry line Towne & Reese (she wore a ton of it on her season of The Bachelorette), and now the single mom is collaborating with the brand to create her own line, available on her site, EmilyMaynard.com, beginning July 10. “Each piece reflects my style,” Maynard told InStyle.com. “Some days I wake up and dress very ladylike with heels and pearls, and the next day I’ll wear combat boots and ripped jeans, but that’s the fun part of being a girl.” Her collaborators Town & Reese, started by former advertising executives Christi Pack and Jessica Stanfield, is budget-friendly, with each piece named after friends of the duo’s daughters — who just happen to be named “Towne” and “Reese.” Maynard did the same with her collection. “Ricki [Maynard’s 7-year-old daughter] had a lot of fun naming each piece after one of her friends,” Maynard said. “She went through the whole yearbook!” In fact, with 63 pieces in her first collection, the reality star joked that Ricki is going to have to make some more friends come next season. Maynard visited antique marts for inspiration, so expect to see some vintage pieces, along with some tribal-inspired designs with turquoise. The one thing you shouldn’t expect to see? A line of bridal jewelry. “I haven’t had that good of luck,” she demurred, “so I don’t know. I wouldn’t want to jinx someone.” Click through the gallery to see some of the pieces from her new line, available July 10.
During this season of The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard (a former Bachelorette herself!) is sharing her top fashion picks from the show with us each week. Last night’s episode included helicopter rides and a hysterical Mr. America pageant, along with a healthy dose of one of Maynard‘s favorite things: Sequins! Desiree Hartsock and her remaining suitors headed to Atlantic City, and much to Maynard’s delight, the clothing choices were as bold and full of sparkle as the city itself. “If you watched my season of The Bachelorette, you know there is very rarely a sequin I can pass up,” Maynard told InStyle.com exclusively. “Of course all of my favorite outfits from the episode were covered in sequins!” Click the photo to see all the outfits Maynard loved on last night’s episode, then check back every week to see more of her favorite looks.

Last night’s episode of The Bachelorette proved to be the most dramatic so far this season, with broken fingers, ex-girlfriend appearances, and some tearful goodbyes. That didn’t stop Bachelorette and aspiring bridal designer Desiree Hartsock from looking her best, though.

On last night’s episode of The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock introduced suitor Brooks Forester to her passion for bridal design during their one-on-one time, and later showed her fun-loving side on a group date when she and the guys filmed a music video with rapper Soulja Boy. We loved her style last night, and we weren’t the only ones. One of our favorite former Bachelorettes, Emily Maynard, is watching the season along with us and today she’s giving InStyle.com the scoop on her favorite looks from the show. “After watching last night’s episode I think it’s pretty clear that Desiree is a much cooler Bachelorette than I ever was,” Maynard told InStyle.com. “I mean, Soulja Boy, really? However, the kid in me will always take Kermit and Miss Piggy over any rapper any day of the week.” Click to see which looks Maynard loved, then check back every Tuesday for her favorite looks from each episode.
