HARLEQUIN & JESTER CHIC





So according to Style.com Harlequin Patterns are in. I can't say that I have anything remotely close to harlequin patterns in my closet. Lots of flower patterns, some paisley an animal print here or there, but nothing that would make me resemble a mime or one of the characters from Alice in Wonderland. However there is one small little bit of this trend that I am totally excited about 2 tone tights. I saw a girl wearing them last winter (she made them herself by cutting off the one leg of two different colour tights, cool idea but I feel like bathroom visits might get a little tricky.) This girl definitely has I told you soo rights because these two toned tights are everywhere.  Chanel has an amazing pair but, if you can spend hundreds of dollars on your tights because you will probably rip them you can get a similar look from AA for way less. There are also some pretty cool harlequin inspired accessories out there. The key though is not going over the top or you will look like a drama camp kid but, older and sadder.
