The spring suit

The spring suit

There is much to be said about going to work (or shower or bar-mitvah) in your two piece suiting. Even if you're in the fashion game, and pride yourself on creatively constructing outfits that are unexpected, and def not typical, a suit says, I got my act together / I have a real job / I can patiently wait for alterations on 4 different limbs to be taken up. But not all suits are created and crafted equally, and Phillip Lim showcases that colorfully here. This suit's élan begins with a peachy sorbet color, a hue only for a season of golden glow-y skin, and ends with a flare that crops right before the ankle. With a high rise, this cropped pant on it's own is the cornerstone to a great spring outfit effortlessly worn with loafers or effort-fully paired with another spring must, the mule or lace-up.

Paying homage can typically be proudly displayed on shirts, a la sports teams and neighborhood burger joints.

A matching set

A matching set

Something I have learned over this course called ‘life’ is that, if a matching set is offered, buy the matching piece. Nothing makes an impact like a two-piece. 

For a while it was suits. I don’t wear suits, that is, a matching jacket + pant, or so I would think until I’m pants-less trying to get out the door. Jackets as a component to a freestyle outfit are great, but sometimes you just need to put your pants on and go. Then there were croptop/high wasted skirt combos, side tables, and lamps, that I just should have bought in pairs. That’s why, when there is a shorty-short being offered with your graphic 60’s textured printed car coat, buy them.
