Gone are the days when fall was synonymous with all-black clothing, as Sara Sampaio's pink-on-pink outfit has proven. The model channeled Legally Blonde's Elle Woods in a full-on bubblegum-pink ensemble as she walked around Paris Fashion Week on Tues. afternoon. She even paired her chunky sweater and PVC skirt with bold cowboy boots and a hot-pink bag.
Perhaps it was the budding PVC trend that inspired Sampaio's look to begin with. Other celebrities like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Culpo, and Gigi Hadid have been sporting everything from vinyl pants to transparent raincoats of late — and Sampaio has officially joined the ranks.
The model tucked a super-chunky, oversized turtleneck by Isabel Marant into a pink-vinyl miniskirt for a bold off-duty look. She finished off the outfit with candy-colored Fendi cowboy boots (the same ones Kendall Jenner sported in Milan in blue just a week ago) and a Barbie-inspired translucent mini satchel.
The Portugal native's mismatched silhouettes and fabrics worked just as well as the eye-catching color. Who knew an oversized, chunky sweater could look so perfect tucked into a high-waisted, form-fitting mini? Even though Sampaio's chirpy monochromatic outfit is a change from her usual off-duty style (the Victoria's Secret Angel is no stranger to a pair of lace-up sandals, destroyed denim, and black-leather jackets and pants), her pink look is proof that bright hues can work for fall.
Get The Look
When you think of fall fashion, rich autumnal colors probably come to mind. But a look like Sampaio's proves you don't necessarily have to pack away your sunny yellows, pinks, and pastel blues as soon as the first leaves fall from their trees. The key to wearing summery colors into fall is to opt for season-appropriate fabrics. Sampaio's skirt was on-trend with the PVC craze and she matched it with a cozy fall knit. Don't be afraid to play around with bright-colored leathers, velvet, suede, and wool.
