Stay On Top of Spring 2014 Fashion

A revised version of bingo helps you plan your outfits!

Transitioning to a new season is always tough, especially for people who live and breathe fashion. New seasons mean new trends to keep up with, new items of clothing to invest in, and new outfits to plan; It can get pretty overwhelming. Luckily, BooHoo.com has come up with a little game of Wardrobe Bingo to help with all that hard work.

It might seem like bingo has no place in the fashion world, being the drab, boring game that senior citizens play in stuffy bingo halls, but the game seems to have sprouted a sense of fashion in recent years. Not only have the most fashionable people of the world started to take up the game (case in point Kate Moss and Catherine Zeta-Jones, unashamed lovers of bingo), but the game itself has started blooming into a colorful experience.

Not your average game of bingo at RebelBingo.com

No longer confined to calling out numbers in boxes, bingo has also seen powerups in the form of Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods in Bingogodz, and wild bingo competitions in Rebel Bingo. BooHoo.com has taken bingo further into the fashion world by creating a simple game that allows the stylish to make full use of their bursting wardrobes.

The principles of Wardrobe Bingo are simple: gather five items that fall under the following categories: tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories, and label each item with a number from 1-5. Participants then pick a random number for each category, put on all the corresponding clothing items, and take a photo of the final outfit.

As spring approaches, now is the perfect time to start looking for some of the key pieces that will make up your wardrobe. A quick edit through BooHoo.com’s Wardrobe Bingo can help you plan what items of clothing to invest in next, especially when working on a budget. To play, grab a bingo card template off the internet (or create one yourself — just a 5×5 grid on a piece of cardboard), and mark each row as Tops, Bottoms, Shoes and Accessories, and each column with a number from 1-5. In each box, take down a key Spring 2014 trend that corresponds to the clothing group.

Here are some of our favorite trends to rock this season, courtesy of Elle.com:

For tops, off the shoulder shirts and dresses are all the rage this coming season.

Color: Orange is the new black, and pinks are perfect for spring.

For shoes:

Curved heels are the newest rage in shoe trends.

Walter Steiger printed curved heel pumps.

Pumps and high heels worn with socks. This trend is fun and bold, don’t be afraid to mix colors!

Mules (that’s right, the mules are making a serious comeback this spring), and for comfort look to skater shoes, as seen on uber fashionista Jourdan Dunn.

For accessories, our favorites of the spring collections were the big, bold, colorful, and DIY-inspired pieces.

Now before you go out on a shopping spree, roll the dice for each clothing group, and take note of the corresponding trend. For example, rolling a 3 for bottoms means you’re going out on a quest to find the perfect board shorts, and a 5 for accessories will send you on a lookout for bright gems. When you roll a 6, pick out your trend of choice from the list.

  3. Reblogged this on Changing Your Clothes and commented:
    So funny, but also a great idea– I know I tend to put the same pieces together, rather than mixing them in new ways. Wardrobe Bingo should help us get out of any fashion ruts we may have inadvertently wandered into!

  4. Fantastic idea! Think I might also try this to find new color combinations, as well as mixing garments.

    • we’re so glad you liked it! we think of it as a fun playful way to rediscover the potential in your closet!
      let us know how it goes, we’d love to see!
      xoxo

  5. I really like the idea of random choice. It’s a good way of getting people out of a style rut, identifying gaps in there wardrobe and into new trends. Every S/S they try with the orange again. I find it only suits olive skinned people or redheads.

    • we totally agree about random choice, it’s a great way of getting really creative and opening up to new ideas!
      xoxo

    • thanks love, we can’t wait either!!
      xoxo

    • black and white are definitely classy and chic and look fabulous on you!
