Erin is powerfully chic in the way that she loves, wears and designs men’s clothes while giving them a feminine edge. I love how she is all gamine when she wears a short romper with chunky Palladium combat boots. If there’s any chance of coming off too girly in a graffiti minidress of her own construction, it’s made sharp with her long, blunt platinum bangs. Tough and soft, there’s a tattoo of Madonna with lots of “tude” in black leather and a wisp of feathers painted on her neck. Subtle details can make a loud impact. This is evident in the touches of neon that Erin uses with her royal blue suede oxfords, lime socks and electric green pumps, and the way she buttons her button-down all the way up to her neck.
For me, it doesn’t get much sexier – in that androgynous, not overt and mysterious way – than a pinstripe suit on a girl. Erin’s got the perfectly oversized five-piece Jean Paul Gaultier one that her icon Madonna wore on the Blond Ambition Tour. With high-waisted pleated trousers and a bustier that has layers of ribbony straps falling off of the shoulder worn under a blazer, speaks volumes of the virtues of “going both ways” when it come to fashion.
