Emily Ratajkowski Presents the Most Badass Way to Wear a Suit: With a Bikini Top
Emily Ratajkowski skipped a shirt altogether and wore a bikini top under her blazer to start New York Fashion Week. "Kicked off fashion week in @inamoratawoman, of course," she wrote on her Instagram underneath a photo of her bold outfit. While I've become so accustomed to seeing Emrata in bikinis, I barely batted my eyes at this appearance, I actually think Emily may be onto something — a new, risky method of styling, perhaps?
Alexander Wang's Spring 2020 collection includes a few similar looks. Models strutted down the runway in structured sports bras under their jackets and low-slung trousers, just like Emily. Emily's coat came to a duster length, stopping right at her ankles, where she strapped her heels around the hem of her slacks. She toted a minibag in a fierce orange shade and wore her engagement ring. The style is daring, to say the least, but it would give me a reason to keep my swimwear in rotation, rather than bringing it home to my parents' house at the turn of the season because "I don't have any room" in my 760-square-foot apartment.
Emily's look also presents the question: as a creative dresser and confident woman, should I challenge myself to show a little more skin during the transitional season, when the weather's still warm and I'm missing the beach? Why not? Read on to check out Emily in the Inamorata Las Olas top, and let me know if you're game to try this badass spin on workwear.
