Style Files: Nut Brown Is The New Black
After several hours deliberation, we’re going with the ‘Nut Brown’. You? Images: AP Photo via Daylife, universovip.blogspot.com & Protek
We like to consider ourselves fairly in the know when it comes to the latest fashion trends, people. The amount of money we collectively spend on handbags, shoes and random bits of fabric suggests as much, anyway.
But unfortunately we appear to have been left behind with this ‘must have’ – the obnoxious orange glow. Yes, apparently looking like a freshly varnished fence is the latest in high fashion and all of our favourite peeps are cheerfully hitting the bottle/can/paintbrush with gusto.
It’s rare, nay practically unheard of, but we are speechless at some of the sights gracing the tabloids of late. Whether it’s a look inspired by Jersey Shore (we’re not totally sure why anyone would want to emulate Snooki, The Situation and DJ Pauly D et al (left), but hey… who are we to criticise?) or a garden furniture show room, our only hope is that manufacturers will eventually catch on to the product shill opportunities offered by this travesty in tanning.
Who knows? Soon we might all be taking care of our wooden fixtures and fittings with a careful (and even) application of ‘Lampard Leather Look’. How marvelous would that be?!
