I’ve realized over time that colour is my best friend.


I cut the sleeves off this hot pink t-shirt to make it more masculine and added pinstriped grey slouchy trousers.  I lucked out having these mens braces in dark purple.



Speaking of purple, apparently 15% of New Yorkers wear purple undies (according to Hanes and the #UnderCoverColor campaign). I went full on purple bra and bottoms.  Feels good to wear something bright underneath. Check undercovercolor.com to see where the colour you wear ranks on the above graphic.



T-shirt and bra tank: Hanes.  Shoes: Elizabeth & James. Similars by Whisp. Mens braces: thrift/vintage. Hat: H&M. Similar by Emmanuelle or Genie Jordan.  Leopard wallet: Random. Try Wang (very similar), Jerome Dreyfus or Cleobella. Trousers: H&M: I love Shopbop’s cropped ones.  Lipstick: MAC ‘Show Orchid’ Sticker tattoo: from my friend’s daughter

Summer’s officially done but I want to wear more colour in autumn and winter – too much choice around to stick with just black.
