Washington is a small town, and in a small town, people get creative. While in some small towns you might find a hundred different ways to bake a pie, in Washington you’ll find a hundred different ways to bake the truth. While truth as it exists today is a constructed narrative, so is your daily style. As a New Yorker in a city caught between preppy and afro-funk, every spring I look for edgier ways to wear the styles and colors everyone else is wearing. So this spring, I’m sharing my New Yorker’s edit for Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing Pink

  • Do find casual ways to slip in pink, like a statement tee. While you should always be cover page-ready, not every look has to look like “Sunday best.”
  • Don’t forget to thoughtfully style your pink look. Without curated accessories, pink simply says “chromosome XX.”

  • Do add unique textures to your pink piece. Taking on pink in mesh form with this Top Shop tee adds a dose of edge while keeping it from ever being too girly. Perfect.

  • Don’t limit pink to the warm and sunny days. Washington tends to see quite a few grey days during the transition from winter to spring (and fall to winter.) So I recommend borrowing from the color palettes of other seasons, like these brown suede strappy pumps and coat, to make your outfit feel more relevant.

  • Do pull your hair up for a more professional and elegant look. Pink is a bright and happy color to begin with. Pairing your pink look with an updo adds a more demure and toned down feel, which I personally love to do.

Here’s to gorgeous long days, and glowing style to match! What are some spring style tips you swear by in your city?
