Last year, I was on a 70’s style kick but my new hair has me pulling out my favorite 80’s vintage finds. Like this incredible 80’s hot pink cropped jacket! It has “Working Girl” vibes written all over it. Of course I’m speculating but I can imagine it had a matching pencil skirt and whoever owned the set was the fashion queen of her office; big hair and all!
The hot pink and charcoal grey color combination evokes rock & roll vibes for me. So instead of following the feminine path, I paired it with these edgier distressed grey Mom Jeans and white boots. The jeans and boots were not thrifted and yet looked like they were plucked out of a Prince music video!
The jacket already has a nipped in waist and I was very close to shooting the outfit sans belt. But at the very last minute, I tried on this belt for the fun of it and really loved the silhouette it created! I preach the magic of the belt and sometimes I even forget to put one on🙈. There are definitely times it doesn’t work but it’s better to try it out anyway. When it does work, it can make your look SO much better!
I kept going with the rock and roll vibe with more edgy accessories like these safety pin earrings, mirrored cat eye sunglasses and fog-foiled bag. Sometimes I go for balance; but sometimes I just go for it 😁.
