Last year I was on the fence about the rise of 80’s style suits coming back full force. I never bit into the trend but this Spring, something came over me when I spotted this flushed Joie suit. For starters, it’s just a good pink—not quite salmon and not quite baby pink—and I’ve been told this is one of my colors. I won’t argue that since it definitely provokes a happy mood, so I’ll take it. However, I’ve never been one to fall completely into a “girly” moment, so here’s what I did to toughen up my pink suit.
Graphic tees always have a way of grunging up a look. I love a good vintage rock band tee—give me all the Madeworn tees!—especially when mixed with something soft or feminine. If you’re going for that rough around the edges look, trade in any heels or ladylike shoes for something a bit more androgynous or masculine. Booties, running shoes or even loafers are fun options. I’ve been pairing these Rag & Bone Dylan runners with everything lately and bonus they’re crazy comfortable.
