Spring is here — um, yes queen! But how do you avoid looking super basic while you’re sipping rose on a rooftop bar posting pics of the sunset to Insta? Take a cue from celebs and trendsetters and pour a big old jar of spaghetti sauce all over your clothes!
We saw this cool look ALL over the runway back at New York Fashion Week, where it set fashion editor tongues everywhere a-WAGGING:
The best part? It’s totally chic and high fashion but also totally down-to-earth and simple. And celebs are on board for this totally cool and delicious trend.
Here’s a great way to make that sauce pop and grab some attention right off the bat — mama mia!
But if your taste is a little more muted, you can be cautious with those s’ghetti spills.
Even alt fashionistas can get in on the action.
This trend isn’t just for the ladies.
But beware! Trends are like express trains — you can take them too far! You might be tempted to try chili, but it’s harder to pull off. The meat starts to smell after a few hours, and the color is WAY duller than a classic marinara. Most of the time it can just end up looking like a soggy stew and that’s basically the complete opposite of spring and everything it stands for.
Alfredo is a fun spin but only for darker colors — don’t even THINK of wearing it with a cream-colored gown because it will blend right in with the fabric.
Ready to try it at home? Albertson’s, Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s — all these stores are stocking the look this spring. You definitely don’t need to go with a brand name (most store brands are perfectly serviceable), but if you like some flash, Prego and Ragu are both super solid options and spill smooth onto any fabric. If you’re working with something more delicate (like silk or satin) a chunkier sauce will cling better, so try Newman’s Own (amazeballs in Garlic Roasted).
And if you’re feeling super crafty you can make your own. This recipe is so so good and so so simple. Added bonus? Throw the leftovers on some noodles and you got yourself a nice little dinner.
At the end of the day, this trend is all about HAVING fun — so rock it!
