Acid wash is still hangin around, and spring 2013 is showing lovely light washes and some very affordable pieces. While neons and pastels are interestingly enjoying similar heights of hue popularity, I’ve gone with pastels this time around to keep at least minimal distance from becoming fully 80s throwback.
The leftmost look starts with a pair of eccentrically white Balenciaga specs, dressed with two acid wash items that have different washes (which allows them to be worn together without looking totally mental) - New Look’s acid button up and Alice & Olivia’s jeans. I love the idea with a pair of coral Udessas by Vince Camuto.
The right is a bit more casual; a sleeveless River Island acid shirt pairs with Wildfox’s high waisted denim shorts. I’m totally into the pastel color combo of Dorothy Perkins’ striped socks with Superga’s cotton candy sneaks. I’ve accentuated the look with neutral Acne sunnies and a green Alexander Wang Marti backpack. Perfect!
