Style File: Awkwafina Gets Lost in Bright Prints and ’80s Styles

Posted on December 06, 2018


Girlfriend’s been hitting the awards season party circuit in some bold, bright, fun looks that keep letting her down, we’re sorry to say.

It takes a lot to distract from such a brightly focus-pulling print like that blouse, but the crotch on those shorts has managed the job nicely. Oh, girl. The look book picture (below) makes it all look so easy, doesn’t it? That’s the thing with look books. They lie, girl. To be honest, we don’t particularly like how matchy the shorts and shoes are to the shirt. It’s got a juvenile feel to it. Love the top, but everything below it can be tossed.

Another fairly cute, colorful print, but again, the shape of this thing is not great. The high waist combined with the pleats and the sloppy tuck are all too distracting in combination. Once again: keep the cute blouse, but ditch everything else.

Oh, fine. You can keep the shoes since you clearly like them so much. But the ’80s secretary skirts and culottes need to be seriously reconsidered.
