(don't) hype me up

According to this article in the LA Times, hypercolor is back, and we should all be excited for its re-arrival into our lives. While I'm all for crazy colors and funky looking clothes, I'm not so sure I'll be welcoming this 90's fad back into my life.

Some of the styles at Anzevino and Florence


For one thing, I just can't see how I won't look like a fourth-grader in my color changing getup. Sure, they can modernize the styles and make cute little dresses like those at Anzevino and Florence, but there'll always be something about these chameleon threads, just like their forgotten cohorts, mood rings and color changing stickers, that will forever make me feel childish.



Secondly, although heat sensitive dye and color changing tricks are nifty, I wouldn't want to be caught dead in a hypercolor outfit on a hot day. Talk about highlighting uncomfortable areas. I'm not sure I know many people who like (or want) to show off how much they sweat on a daily basis, but hey, who am I to judge...

Multi-colored pit stains... not so hot

Basically, I don't think I'll be jumping on the bandwagon this time around, although I wouldn't mind a pair of these Alexandra Cassaniti hypercolor sunglasses. They use the technology in a fun, underwhelming way- one that I can definitely stomach.

its not usually my style to wear hyper colors, but they could look good paired with darker colors.

I think the brights could look good if used very sparingly...

yeah, this could be really embarrassing at a dance party- but the sunglasses are great!

I think hyper change is very cool. I want at least one shirt, though I'm not certain when or where I will wear it...
