There is nothing I repeat nothing hotter than repurposed 90’s fashion right now. (Ok maybe only second to my dream about Blake Lively last night. Shiiiiiiittt!) But second to that, these white jeans paired with a 90’s classic Calvin Klein graphic T are EVERYTHING! The blazer and backwards cap take this classic ensemble to an even fresher place…a millennial place.
Wrk, wrk, wrk, wrk, wrk… Doesn’t have to be in your mom’s tacky polyester ensembles. This outfit says “I work hard…I’m professional but I haven’t been lobotomized.” You can be professional in the workplace without completely watering down your identity. You’re queer, you have tats and you throw down in the office. Fuck yeah! All these things can exist together. This ensemble is so versatile. The slightly short in the leg trouser, chill shoe and cuffed sleeve offset the formalness of the tie and tie clip. Perfect for a casual Friday through to after work drinks with that flirty HER babe. What’s that? You also have a post lunch performance appraisal on casual Friday?! Scroll on…
BAM! Throw on a blazer, switch out the casual shoe for some leather Derby’s or Oxfords and NO socks. No socks, because it’s hot and confident! Trust me here, NO SOCKS! Say it with me! ” No. Socks.” Now you are ready to crush it with your boss. Go on and grind girl!
Two words: Kurt. Cobain. Nuff said.
Concert T, short sleeve button up and classic white Chucks. Yes! Yes! Yes! + The vintage shades and bleached locks = “Grunge” reboot at it’s best!
