Many Fashionistas get style inspiration from the runway and their favorite magazine, mine tends to come from cartoon '80s movies and classic Britney Spears music videos. Thats why this Fashionista caught my eye, particularly because of her rainbow layered tops. Rainbow Brite was probably my first style icon, her multi colored clothes and unicorn were all I ever wanted and this week's Fashionista channels Rainbow Brite in a way that's campus ready.
First to get inspired, I urge you to pour over Rainbow Brite pictures and videos. If runway inspiration is more your style, channel Rainbow Brite style by layering this seasons neutrals, pastels. If you're not afraid of color go for the “Rainbow Brite goes to DayGlo” look and layer neon. For pastel layering get yourself to H&M, they have a million pastel staples right now, I'm loving a banana yellow/lilac purple/mint green combo. My top in-store pick right now is this high low pink ombré top. Layer it with a multi-colored bandage skirt for rainbow affect. To layer neons, shop Pitusa for ultra comfy clothes that are both ethical and comfortable. Don't be too timid to pile the color on, this Fashionista and myself would approve. For the bold I recommend this amazing pair of Jeffrey Campbells, which a 2012 Rainbow Brite would absolutely wear.
For further inspiration and ways to wear color make a nice cup of tea and spend a lazy day in bed stalking through Jeffrey Campbell's Blog. Oh, and pop in your favorite cartoon '80s movie.
