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!

Stroll in Bloom

Florals are a timeless and playful pattern that compliments nearly every occasion in every season. Finding a floral piece in your wardrobe that you love and that fits your mood is a great starting point in curating an outfit. So, you grab your floral piece and notice the fabrics and the colors. The kind of fabric usually gives you a clue what occasion it will fit best and what weather it is best suited for. Also, notice the different colors of the flowers and from there you can find other pieces to add to it. We decided to pair a casual light blue v-neck with these trousers which goes nicely with the blue in the flowers. We wanted the red in the pattern to stand out, but a red or pink shirt would also go beautifully. Let the floral print do the talking and allow your accessories and other pieces to compliment it without distracting from it. We thought a neutral shoe and bag would help complete this look – these heels from Dolce Vita are truly perfect with any outfit and they certainly complete this look effortlessly.
