I have always loved the color pink. In case this post title doesn’t ring a bell, it’s a line from Aerosmith’s ’90s single “Pink,” which I liked so much that I named a pink teddy bear Stephen Tyler. (I was an interesting kid.) Given that I was seven or eight, I understand why no one felt compelled to tell me that, in this case, “pink” was being used a euphemism for the vagina. (Funnily enough, that’s also the story behind the singer Pink’s stage name…I like fun vaginal facts.) ANYWAY, I have always been into pink, but shied away from wearing lighter shades until recently. Considering my newfound confidence in wearing pastels and my affinity for bomber jackets, this one was a no-brainer. The pink jacket and purse give such feminine vibes, so I decided to balance this look out with these amazing Calvin Klein, khaki-colored, cropped boyfriend jeans. These jeans fit with unparalleled perfection, and I have a close relationship with denim. No one does it quite like Calvin, am I right? Unfortunately, these pants were designed exclusively for Urban Outfitters and are completely sold out. Their medium blue acid wash counterpart, however, is still available here.

We’ve gone over this: culottes/gaucho pants are all the rage. But, now that they’ve become a certified staple, one has to consider curating a diverse collection. This gorgeous pair, on sale at Intermix, caught my eye because of their gorgeous clay color and metal belt detailing. A little bit of hardware can really take a simple staple to the next level. It’s especially awesome in this case because the belt is actually adjustable, allowing for a little extra room when I get intimate and make a baby with my lunch. I really love culottes because they meet my foremost fashion priority: versatility. These gauchos look lovely and relaxed with my cropped tee and white tennis sneakers, but would also slay with a pair of strappy heels and a blouse (or just a different crop top, whatever).

Bomber Jackets, Cont’d: Staple or Trend?

Owning two satiny green bomber jackets may seem excessive, so, for my own sake, allow me to justify. It’s not a secret that bomber jackets have become a ubiquitous piece in street style culture. Chic meets chill, they up the ante for so many looks. There are, however, two different categories of bomber jackets, which serve different style services: one is the statement bomber (as seen here on the Sauce), usually involving vibrant colors and embellishments, and the second is the minimal bomber. The minimal bomber, like my olive green one above, is understated, goes with almost everything, and I dare say is becoming the new denim jacket. That’s why I feel confident claiming that while the bomber jackets is “trendy” at this moment, it’s proven versatile enough to solidify itself as a necessary staple—a certified classic—very much here to say.  Also, I die over this olive green and blush combo. As “fall colors” like olive green, clay-camel, and navy pervade our spring/summer wardrobes, expect pastels to continue complimenting those deeper hues going into fall/winter.

Sneakers are the champions of the shoe scene right now, and I just love seeing how the fashion world keeps finding creative new ways to elevate more comfortable styles, because changes like this help to make fashion feel more inviting and fun, allowing for a more diverse street style community. These coated canvas Superga sneakers in a snake skin print are a great option for people who like subtle statement pieces. (No, that’s not an oxymoron. It’s a thing.)

My boyfriend told me this outfit made me look like a cast member in Weekend At Bernie’s. Compliment accepted. Anyway, Alexander Wang has obviously mastered and updated the T-shirt dress, making this one a bit longer in the back. Superga is the go-to brand for a classic tennis shoe, and I love my white ones so much that I’m seriously considering this gorgeous silk pair, designed by the good people at Superga, along with the help of The Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine.
