We’ve seen plenty of it on the runways of London and Milan Fashion Weeks, and even on the Emmys red carpet – fairy floss-inspired fashion is definitely trending right now! From fluffy layers of tulle to sweet pink hues, designers are taking their cues from one of our favourite childhood snacks.
Even in the food world, traditional fairy floss is being reworked. Just like the recent wave of donuts, hot dogs and #instagrammable milkshakes, artisan varieties of fairy floss are popping up everywhere. We love seeing creations such as fairy floss ice creams and cotton candy donuts, both of which look as great as they taste!
While some of us will jump on this trend with pink tousled locks and more tulle than a Toddlers & Tiaras dress, the rest of us can work the pretty pastel hues into our outfits, accessories and beauty regimens.
Game of Thrones star Massie Williams rocked the trend at last week’s Emmy Awards with a cotton candy coloured dress and fluffy pink heels to match.
Get the look with a soft pink palette, floaty fabrics and accessories. Look for volume and embellishments for the ultimate in fairy floss fashion
We’ve seen models like Cara Delevingne, Abbey Lee and Fernanda Ly sporting cotton candy locks this year and the trend is definitely sticking around for summer. You can try it out from the comfort of your own bathroom, with the change being temporary for those who are just looking to experiment. Use hair chalk to achieve a streaked pink look that will last for only a couple of washes, or a cream or mousse to cover all of your locks for a stronger effect that will last a few weeks.
Fairy floss nails are super-feminine and can be paired with almost any outfit. Pick your favourite shade of pink polish and paint away! Take the whole look up a notch by choosing a textured polish like Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat or one with a bit of sparkle.
