Armani Exchange red trousers with Blood is the New Black “Terror” Boyfriend Tee, Monki denim shirt (a hand-me-down from Jayne), vintage belt and Theysken’s Theory pumps / photos by Joshua Spencer

Natalie and I are hard at work styling a 20-person campaign this week which led us to talking about the “stylist uniform.” Namely about how too much of our day can onsist of (often literal) running around and needing a “uniform” that can take us from air kisses  at a ‘shcmancy showroom (secret: my black lipstick doubles as kiss-kiss repellant!) to schlepping returns to hands-and-knees digging through a warehouse. Looking like a Fashion Week street style snap, while fun (sometimes), just isn’t always practical. But you knew that already.

As my day to day routine varies, I don’t know that I’ll ever have, nor truly want, a “uniform” per se, however I do love transitional pieces that can take me from “Stylist” to “Assistant” to “Writer” to “Creative Director” to “WTF am I doing with me life?” all in one day.

I won’t wax poetic on the “Pop of color for Spring!”, but since dark wash denim gets monotonous and I get “are you feeling ok?” looks when I opt for leggings-as-pants, these red trousers (sent to me by A/X and available here) have been my saving grace this week. Give or take a 6″ wedge, they say “business” when I need them to and “casual” when I don’t. And I think we’ve talked about this before, but red is still my power color, so they may or may not give me superpowers, too. Always a plus.

PS – Braids!

    Such a great look! The denim looks great with the red. And the braids are beautiful on you! I won’t ever get over your shoes. Jeffrey Campbell has a couple pretty similar ones and I own a pair…but they’ll be these.

    And as a uniform for Stylist…. Totally a Sham! :p I feel that stylist should be able to wear whatever they want… Whenever they want! :D As a way to express their personality through their style.
