Spice things up this Valentine’s Day with a cute outfit inspired by two mega pop culture icons – classic Barbie and the neoteric 50 Shades of Grey. Both phenomenons serve as the perfect template for this season’s “it” colors. Barbie pink looks great on all skin tones and can appear sophisticated when dressed up with the appropriate accessories. You can be daring and shop for a sculpted electric pink cocktail dress, or be discreet and incorporate the pink into smaller statement pieces like clutches and pencil skirts. Barbie inspired Jeffrey Campbell for Moschino this season, so let her be your muse, too 🙂
To top off the look, pair your cocktail dress with a subdued heather grey cape with fur lining around the collar and hem. This screams softened elegance! For us Fly Gyal’s who like to accessorize, keep your necklace, bracelets, and and rings minimal. I prefer mixing thin pieces of gold and black jewelry to break up the vibrancy of the pink, then adding a big, fancy cocktail ring to set it off. Talk about eat your heart out! He will be swooning before you even say, “hello.”
Happy Valentine’s Day Fly Gyal’s!
