Ariana Madix may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think about outlandish style choices, but it looks like that might have to change. The Vanderpump Rules bartender has rather out-there beauty looks on lock — just see her epic unicorn braid she wore to Tom Sandoval’s birthday as proof. When it comes to fashion, Ariana tends to keep things pretty classic and cool and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it. But in a recent Instagram pic, the SURver showed that not only can she pull off one of this summer’s trickiest trends, but she can practically give a tutorial in rocking 80’s style the 2019 way.
On July 14, Ariana stuck a pose while out and about with fellow PumpRules cast mate Scheana Shay at what we can only hope was an 80’s-themed party (otherwise the people of Los Angeles have a lot of explaining to do). Ariana dropped it like it’s hot wearing a pair of acid bright neon green pants from Cali-based brand Donnée par Dieu. She paired her standout pants with a neon fuschia, sleeveless crop top and lots of gold chain jewelry. To take the throwback look all the way back, Ariana added a patterned scrunchie (why not?) and then kept things simple with a pair of blush Analise Pumps ($170) by Schutz. Come to think of it, the entire PumpRules crew does love to don 80's-esque ensembles, but this look still feels fresh.
Somehow Ariana made the whole old-school look feel completely wearable and totally 2019. Well done, lady. Well done.
