Olivia Culpo's Neon Pink Dresses Made A Colorful Splash In Miami
Swim Week just wrapped in Miami this past weekend, and the oufits definitely matched the rising temperatures. Among the best of the best were Olivia Culpo's not one but two neon pink dresses. While her frocks were definitely on the more daring side, there's actually a super easy way to emulate the style at home, and it all comes to down to fit.
Culpo stepped out in the first look on July 11 on her first night in Florida ahead of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition open casting call. The model wore a ruffled Antonio Berardi number with a pair of equally bright pumps designed by Brian Atwood. Her short brown bob was pulled back into a tight ponytail, with a deep pink lip color completing her look.
She wore a second pink piece just two days later to attend another casting call on July 13. This time, she opted for a latex version from Versace's Pre-Fall 2019 collection. The frock featured daring cutouts around the waistline that were held together by oversized gold safety pins. She accessorized her look simply with a pair of glimmering gold slingback pumps, and her hair was sleek and straight, hitting just above her shoulders.
Sadly, neither dress that Culpo wore is readily available at the moment. But, Versace has a very similar option that you can shop — this time, the cutouts are featured on the leg. When it comes to accessorizing, you have two options: Coordinate your shoes with your look, or go for a more classic pair of pumps in shades of gold, nude, or black. By sticking with more toned-down accessories — or skipping them all together — the dress will be the focal point of your entire ensemble.
If you're nervous about copying her style, don't be — neon hue are said to bring out the radiance in your skin and complement your summer glow perfectly. But, if striking details like cutouts, latex, or ruffles aren't in your wheelhouse, look for more simple silhouettes. For instance, Alice + Olivia makes the perfect satin mini with a fitted bodice and skirt. Plus ASOS has a ruffled midi-length version that retails for just under $100 — and it's even on sale. If you're ready to get shopping, the Zoe Report rounded up the best neon pink dresses at any price point.
