club blues


First things first: we know nothing of poor little rich girls crying into their mocktails in between tennis lessons at the country club. But the fashion sure looks fun. And to nail the look, we’re drawing major inspo from tortured artist/rich kid, Skye, in Steven Soderbergh’s Red Oaks(Check out the sleeper hit on Amazon.) To conjure the vibe, combine one part prep, one part emo rebel and a touch of ’80s throwback. Mix in a new wave playlist and you’ve got yourself a sweet look with just enough attitude:

Club Petanque Karaoke Sweatshirt in Rose

Illesteva Leonard Horn Sunglasses

Cherry Old Fashioned Smash

Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Blush Duo in Glisten 52

Stay Home Club Sad Songs Enamel Pin

J. Crew Factory Cutoff Denim Short

Reebok Classics Club C 85 Pastels in Sage Mist

Country club life isn’t just about botox and tennis skirts. Channel disaffected Skye with cutoff jean shorts and a tennis racquet. Sweet summer drinks and funky sunglasses make an appearance–the darker the lenses, the better. Bronzer is also a must–because faux tanning is the only way to save your skin long term. Eighties rich kids are the best kind. They were almost always too cool for school, which we totally like. So forget crimped hair and talking like a valley girl. Never mind jock rock and girls as sidekicks. Side with the underdog–the Molly Ringwald or Ducky. And go easy on the brightly-colored makeup. Eighties throwbacks don’t have to be loud. Embrace pastels and pass the mixtape. it’s going to be a sweet sweet summer.
