How to wear hot pink without looking like a five year old, courtesy of J.Crew: tailored, cropped capris in clean lines, oversized navy blue sweater, nautical espadrilles (stripes add interest), and a neutral, structured handbag. Finish with topknot bun, and voilà!
Cropped or rolled trousers are a great wardrobe piece. Instead of a structured top like a buttondown shirt, opt for a loose, casual tee, like this striped one, that helps balance out the professionalism. Then add a pair of wedges to elongate the leg and keep you looking long and lean.
