Power to the Pink Suit

POWER. SUIT. We know them. We love them. Some of our favorite looks involve incredible tailoring. And this look is by no means an exception. In fact, this pink suit from Current Air has an energy all on its own. Carrie really embodied that badass, feminine energy that this suit sets the stage for. And we get it. Menswear, while being incredibly on trend, can be a bit of an intimidating fashion leap for some. And then when you factor in a head-to-toe bright pink, some may hesitate. And, our hope is that you will take a little risk and let your inner boss shine loud (and assertive!) and proud. Perhaps that means just getting a tailored blazer as a start. Or maybe that means taking these pin-stripe pants into the dressing room, doing a quiet dance alone, and then coming out to have a look in the big shop mirror. Whatever that means, we hope you will tap into your inner freakin’ bad ass, because she is in there, and we love her!

Within the Fringe

As I look through these photos I keep thinking how it looks like an album cover for Grace’s new electronic-folk record and I just love every moment of that daydream! Speaking of dreams, this dress from Just Female is a dreamy, light work of wearable art. The detail along the shoulders, front, and hem of the dress is soft and perfectly delicate. It flatters the natural flow and curve of the wearer and flatters each movement. Adding sneakers and a bright pink earring juxtaposes the delicate flow of the dress without interrupting it or screeching to a halt. Don’t hesitate to add your personal flare, or even try something a bit unexpected, to such elegant pieces. They may seem too precious, but in actuality, they are begging to be individualized. That’s really the whole secret to wearing the piece and not “letting the piece wear you.” Beyond everything, we want to see YOU, not simply just the garment. Bring on the flare!

In Your Dreams

Minx has been built on not only a love of and deep connection to fashion and visual expression, but also to music. Connection to live performance, music history and trends, and melody are all foundational to who Minx is. We recognize that music and fashion are sides of the same coin of expression – it would be hard for us to have one without the other. As music trends and taste change and return, so, we find, does fashion. We hope you find that these inexplicable forces are serving you well in how you navigate your world and that Minx is able to help join them together. Imagine the music throughout your life that has shaped who you are and how you see the world. If you were to visualize it – what colors would you see? We see this process similarly with fashion. What tune do you hear in your head when you wear a floral print? How about a leather moto jacket? Does the rhythm of your steps change with the change of your attire? We hope you will explore these ideas within yourself and as you step outside of your fashion comfort zone, maybe let your new favorite song lead the way? Sure, maybe you’ve never worn a crop top. But something about blasting the new Beyonce album kind of makes you wanna give it a try. Go with that! And we’ll be here to give you compassionate and authentic guidance while you make those choices. You got this!

Bad Kitty

The white t-shirt & jeans. This combo may be the most beloved in all of street style history. It seems like whenever we come across an accessory, piece of outerwear, or shoe that seems too outlandish to wear outside of a Fashion Week Runway, our go-to is to always try it with a t-shirt and pair of jeans. This practical pairing seems to make anything more realistic and approachable like magic. Maybe there was some subtle eyerolls there, and it’s okay, we get it! With such an accommodating outfit as the white tee/jeans, there does run the risk of it getting monotonous. But don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! (Yikes, that phrase is intense) I just mean, before you swear off of the white tee/jeans look entirely, try adding some personal flare. It’s a great canvas, all it needs is some personal creativity! No need for couture – just a colorful neck scarf or layering piece can elevate this classic staple into something a bit more individualized.
