Why it Works: Kate Hudson's Tie-Dye Yachting Look


(Photos by Bauer Griffin)

It sounds like the set-up to a mindblowing fashion joke: Kate Hudson boards Sir Philip Green's yacht wearing a tie-dye jumpsuit... and prior to studying this photo, we may have scoffed at the idea it could be anything less than laughable. But after spending a minute or two gazing upon this resorty neon get-up, we've decided it's so wrong it works—punchline optional.

The Jumpsuit: You'll never find the ever-polished Jennifer "Smart Water of Fashion" Aniston rocking one of these bad boys, and that's exactly why we love it. It's risky. It's ugly-cool. It's something that looks like it was lifted from the set of Mamma Mia or, equally, M.I.A.'s trailer. The key here is to break up the admittedly loud tie-dye scheme, which K-Hud does with aplomb—unbuttoned down to there, it's the perfect venue for a layering of holiday-festive beaded necklaces and a glimpse of aquamarine bikini; tied high on the calf, it allows for a bronzed flash of ankle.

The Shades: A spin-art onesie this in-your-face demands no-nonsense accessorizing and that's exactly what these full-coverage frames deliver. They're glamorous, sporty and decidedly un-summer-of-lovey, which is just what the doctor ordered. That, and a poolside marg to go with, of course.

The Hat: Crowning the sun-bleached flaxen 'do that has stolen countless rom-com co-stars' hearts, Hudson's classic sunhat and woven, low-slung beach bag remind us that luxe sunning is on the agenda, and underline the breezy, carefree vibe at the heart of the look.
