Fifties glamour is no simple affair
Ok, the fluffy pink brocade cocktail dress is hard to miss. Most would let a dress this big stand on its own and abide by the K.I.S.S. rule (keep, it simple, sweetie) of removing one accessory before leaving the house.
But not our girl SJP.
Sarah Jessica Parker knows how to pile on the glitz in style. Let’s examine…
.Turquoise eye shadow
.Rich, dark tan
.Pale pink mouth
.Large pearl button earrings
.Jumbo turquoise beads
.Dainty aurora borealis necklace
.Pale blue reptile clutch with jeweled closure
.Massive gotrocks bracelet
.Ditto on the gotrocks cocktail ring
A look this luxe is not exactly a DIY fashion primer to try yourself at home. Unless you have the skill of a top stylist and finesse of Miss Parker, you may end up looking less like a fifties glamour queen and more like an extra in the cast of Grease.
Choose your favorite three details and then mimic just a part of this look for the same effect.
