Summer, summer, summertime

Rep. Michele Bachmann can wear pink very well - light peachy pink. But last week she chose a dusty raspberry seersucker for an appearance on Fox News, and it didn't work nearly as well:

Seersucker is a great summer fabric. But have a look at Rep. Bachmann's skin here. She's clearly gotten a bit of sun, making pink a poor choice. It just makes her look pinker, and not in a good way.

Here's a seersucker look that might work better, which we created for Seersucker Thursday last month:

  1. As a photographer, I'll add that seersucker also has a tendency to be a nightmare to photograph/videograph. It lends itself to that blurred effect you've talked about before, though it's not an issue in this specific instance. But I bet the cameraman had an "oh crap" moment when she showed up.
