After braving a rainy morning on the TODAY plaza, a mother-daughter pair was rewarded with glamorous Ambush Makeovers.
Style Expert Jill Martin and Hairstylist Louis Licari chose Diane and Lauren Solomonson for the chance to get an unforgettable transformation — and dry off inside the TODAY studio!
Lauren Solomonson watches Ambush Makeover with her mom every week, and originally came to support her — but when Martin and Licari suggested she join in on the fun, she jumped at the chance.
1.State One-Button Stretch Crepe Blazer, $129, Nordstrom
Martin picked this crepe blazer in a marigold color to brighten up a rainy day. It also comes in black and navy or lavender for a soft, feminine take on the classic silhouette. Pair it with some leopard heels and some skinny jeans and you're set to take on the day!
Open Front Faux Suede Cardigan, $14-27, Amazon
This faux suede cardigan gives a similar effect as the marigold blazer, but has a more relaxed feel for daytime wear.
