Inspiration: First Lady Michelle Obama, Emma Stone, Ann Romney
You know a trend has found its roots when the wives of two presidential candidates are both wearing pink and it wasn’t even a Wednesday. AND just a day before, current it girl, Emma Stone, was wearing a bright pink dress at Elle’s Women in Hollywood party. If THAT wasn’t enough for you, when Jessica Biel got hitched to Justin Timberlake, she wore a blushing pink wedding dress.
So, how do we even wear such a bright hue? My best advice is: wear it with confidence. It only looks ridiculous if you think it does. Unfortunately, confidence is sometimes hard to come by. In order to build this confidence, treat pink like any other neon colour: start small by matching pink accessories to whatever you wear. Most importantly, pink is an exciting colour so remember to HAVE FUN!
TREND: polka dots
Inspiration: Taylor Swift on The View
Last summer, I had a bit of a shocking revelation when I was riding the bus back home after a trip to Ikea. I realized that the boxes I just bought, my skirt and my nails were covered in polka dots. Since then, I’ve been trying to cool it with the dots because, let’s face it, I’m not Zooey Deschanel.
Unfortunately, it’s been really hard to get off this kick. Between Marc Jacobs’ fragrance Dot and The Sartorialist‘s polka dot street style shots, I can’t stop myself but want more dotted pieces. So, you know what? Let me at ‘em! They’re fun, they’re flirty and most of all, they are (this week’s theme) F. U. N. Fun!
WTF: Chanel’s Hula Hoop bag
Imagination plays a huge part in fashion, and as a result, there are a number of outstanding collections that are more art pieces than ready-to-wear clothes. What kills me, though, when designers try to sell insanely bizarre objects as the world’s most practical accessory. Case in point: Chanel’s hula hoop bag. According to designer Karl Lagerfeld, it would be the perfect beach bag because you can drape everything on it. It might’ve been useful if I couldn’t picture myself tripping over it, or crying because the white fabric got all dirt stained. Not to mention, it’s just a tad ridiculous and a little too over-the-top for the beach.
