As for the ladies' style, Szish said it hasn't been toned down for the sequel. In fact, Szish said the clothes are even more extravagant because the plot brings the characters to exotic Abu Dhabi.

RUFFLES/BRIGHT COLORS:
It's feminine, but still very sexy. Rock 'n' roll accessories really update this look, and makes it look more modern. For this look, Szish chose Michael Antonio shoes that are less than $100 to give it that edge.
