I shamelessly have a lot of Barbie adorned clothing and jewellery, maybe a little too much for someone my age, but I can’t help it I am obsessed. Whether it is a vintage Barbie tee, a Barbie signature necklace, or a kiddy Barbie watch I have it all in my wardrobe. I loved the t-shirt line that Miss Selfridge did, the Barbie x Uniqlo line was cute, and now I totally want to add these insane Barbie printed pieces from the ASOS Collection, the retailer’s trend led and directional line.
Granted I totally know I can’t pull this look off, I wish, but how amazing are these printed joggers with a matching sweatshirt? I am loving the retro eighties vibe, with the crew neckline sweatshirt and the contrast cuffs, and the slouchy style to the joggers and all in a knit fabric – kind of reminds me of the plain grey Fruit of the Loom one I was subjected to as a child. Add the faded collage print featuring Barbie dolls, kittens, glitter stars, butterflies, make-up, heels, an old-school camera, and even a pineapple and it was love at first sight!!!
It’s the insane print that completely sells it to me and I am thinking that this sweatshirt with 1986 popstar Barbie on the front is going to be my new comfort blanket on a cold night in front of the TV!!! The printed joggers do look comfortable though with their high-rise waist – but I think it takes a braver person than me to pull these beauties off.
More of a Micky Mouse fan? Well, ASOS has also done a disney printed version in the same style – check out the joggers here.
