Can Gen Xers Pull Off Millennial Pink? Jenna Lyons Shows How It’s Done

As Harry Styles rocked out in a custom Edward Sexton millennial pink suit this morning, just across town, former J.Crew executive creative director and president Jenna Lyons proved that the cheery color can be sported by grown-ups, too. Lyons has long lent feminine twists to menswear tailoring, deviating from convention at events and Met Galas past in everything from denim to cashmere V-necks offset with feathers, embellishments, and ball skirts. Earlier today, however, the designer took a more minimal approach in As Ever’s jumpsuit.

The fresh rose hue added a girlish spin to the workwear silhouette. Extra polish came courtesy of a tailored camel topper, leather tote, and pointy-toe pumps, while Lyons’s signature thick-rimmed frames added a bookish touch. Swap out the coat for a tuxedo jacket, and you’d have a modern high-low mash-up perfect for a Lyons-style evening out.
