The Express x 'Pitch Perfect 2' Collection Is Dual-Gender And Hits All The Fashion High Notes
With Pitch Perfect 2 hitting the multiplex this weekend, pretty much everyone I know, including myself, has plans to see The Bellas and The Treblemakers in action again. Mall retailer Express created a Pitch Perfect 2 collection that is dual-gender, which means there is a collection designed for the girls and a collection designed for the boys. It's not a movie; it's a lifestyle, okay, and with it comes associated fashions!
Both ranges are based on looks in the film. Hold on. I need a second to clap 'til my hands are sore. With these collections, fans can take their Pitch Perfect fangirldom—or fanboydom—to the next level.
Since the film is an ideal date night flick, and since Express caters to both female and male customers, this collection hits all the fashion high notes. The film's costume designer Salvador Perez handpicked the styles in the collection, which is comprised of tropical florals (oooh!), summer dresses (aaah!), separates (yay!), and accessories for the ladies. The gents can rock denim, suits, casual shorts, and the signature 1MX dress shirt in an ombre design that is limited edition and so, so sharp. Huzzah!
There are so many awesome and on-trend yet modern styles to choose from.
In a press release, Perez noted that the retailer "has always been the go-to store for costume designers because the brand has such a wonderful design esthetic with so many great options to choose from."
When dressing The Bellas and beyond, he admitted that he "needed to project a variety of individual styles, several of which I found at Express. From rock-star glam to collegiate chic, I was inspired to select from the total Express assortment, clothes for the Pitch Perfect 2 Collection on express.com that everyone can relate to, ultimately allowing fans to build a versatile, stylish wardrobe."
The Pitch Perfect 2 x Express collection is exclusively available online.
Here are my fave pieces from the ladies range.
1. Flower Power
Who wouldn't wear this to a karaoke pool party?
2. Coral Cool
Cutest. Romper. Ever. Coral is such a summer-appropriate shade, too.
3. A Case Of The Blues
This looks right out of Anna Kendrick's closet. The bold blue color is summer-friendly.
4. Asymmetry Rules!
This asymmetrical skirt can be dressed up, down, or sideways.
5. Sailor Shorts
High-waisted sailor shorts lead to such a nautical look.
6. Might As Well Jump
Jumpsuits can be hard to pull off, but this one, with its wide legs and halter neckline, is way sexy. This also looks lifted from Kendrick's wardrobe.
7. Cami Ready
A print boho cami is another summer essential.
8. A-Line Love
This pleated A-line skirt works for any professional pursuit, from a college interview to a job interview, or a date with your BF's parents!
9. Mullet Maxi
This mullet maxi with the high-low hem is so chic and a perfect summer outfit for any semi-goths or boho chic-ers.
I had to share the dude's snazzy ombre shirt. I lurve it so much. It's fashion-forward in such a subtle way.
