Julia Roberts' Pink Blazer Dress Is So Summer Appropriate
Traffic-stopping colors like neon green, highlighter orange, and bright yellow are definitely on the uprise this season, but softer, more subdued hues (read: baby blue, mint green, and rose) are just as popular in 2019. The Duchess of Cambridge plays favorites with the former, while the latter just debuted on Julia Roberts in the form of a pink blazer dress. Get your credit cards out now, because you're going to want to scoop up the fashion icon's ultra-tailored one-piece the second you set your sights on it.
It's no secret Roberts has a thing for pink — well, magenta specifically. She's donned pieces rendered in the mood-boosting shade both on and off the red carpet, but it seems she's toned down the color a bit for her latest appearance. Yep, the actor just swapped her usual high-octane pink for an understated blush tone that's utterly sweet, romantic, and perfect for summer.
On May 30, Roberts was photographed in Italy, where she's currently filming a campaign for Italian fashion brand, Calzedonia — a label that offers a wide selection of leggings, swimwear, and tights. Though the focus of the shoot was likely on Roberts' houndstooth hosiery, her baby-pink frock undoubtedly stole the show.
The actor stunned in a blush-hued, long-sleeve blazer dress. The piece features a classic double-breasted design, sharp '80s-inspired shoulders, and a cinched in waistline that gives the menswear staple a feminine flair.
Roberts rounded out the look with a pair of houndstooth tights from Calzedonia, black ankle boots, and a black handbag. Her freshly chopped lob was styled in voluminous curls and her makeup was kept simple and understated. The finishing touch? A pink manicure that coordinated perfectly with her dress.
Blazer dresses may have popped onto the fashion scene last winter, but they're just as much a summertime staple. The trick to making the refined frock work this time of year? Pick one rendered in a soft hue à la Roberts. Material matters, too. Linen and cotton are slightly more suitable than a wool-blend blazer come the high 70's.
Ahead, The Zoe Report rounded up the prettiest blazer dresses on the market, all of which would earned Roberts' stamp of approval in no time.
