Alongside my good friends Alicia and Cee, American Eagle challenged us to style these rose, coated skinnies. Initially, I was nervous. I mean yes, I love femme elements, but I definitely am much more of a tomboy than I am dainty, i.e. the type of person who would ordinarily rock a pair of blush skinnies.
Fortunately, the pants really took me by surprise. When paired with my new leather jacket and hat (which are incidentally both my favourite new things in my closet and edgy enough to temper the femininity of the skinnies), the pants have a whole other vibe to them. A men’s sweater and scarf from Club Monaco, sleek black accessories, no-fuss, tucked-away hair and bare makeup add even more pared-down edginess to the whole look, keeping the femme elements limited to the skinnies.
