You say that you’re all washed up? Well, the latest trend in a different kind of a psychedelic bleached out wash certainly is. If you want to look at it with an artistic point of view, then I would describe it as a stormy summer day looking up from a sugar cane plantation in Maui. But in reality, it looks like a bleached out acid trip gone wild. This is one look that I will pass on only because it’s a fad trend that is sure to be in and out quickly. But, in the name of fashion, I’m not stopping anyone from rocking this look.
Karen Walker’s Fall 2008 runway show presents the trend in such a glamorous way that even I had a fleeting moment of wanting to give it a go. For starters, this look is best suited for the young and skinny. A loud pattern like this will only make you look bigger with all the bad assets accentuated. If you are one who loves drawing attention, which you are certain to get, then these are perfect for you. If not, stick with the regular blues and blend in with the crowd.
