Amandla Stenberg is bringing back '80s power suits, but with a twist
It was a matter of time before young Hollywood jumped on the power suit trend. Not only is Amandla Stenberg bringing back the ’80s look, she added her very own twist. Established red carpet walkers like Emma Stone better watch out,
Amandla not only rocked one amazing suit — she rocked TWO. That’s right. She’s not messing around. And when she isn’t busy marching for equality or being outspoken about race in the media, Amandla finds time to bless us with her fashion. So take out some paper and start taking notes, because you are about to be schooled!
Since Amandla Stenberg’s movie Everything, Everything is coming out, she’s been hitting up the red carpets. The latest was at a screening of the movie in New York City. And what better town to show off a power suit than NYC?
Tell us this isn’t a modern version of an ’80s classic?!
Obviously, the first thing that pops out is the color. This gorgeous millennial pink ensemble somehow perfectly exudes femininity and strength.
The 18-year-old is beaming from ear to ear — most likely because she knows she just murdered the fashion game. The accents on her shirt and jacket top are blinding. Not to mention how well her buzzed hairstyle goes with this entire look.
And look at that pose!
We are not worthy!
Look number two.
For the second power suit look, Amandla Stenberg busts out the white tweed. No shirt needed — or pants!
We are LOVING this sexy, edgy look on her! We’re getting flashbacks to the 80s real bad!
Silver heels complete this look.
Instead of overpowering the piece with a statement shoe, Amandla wore a cute pair of silver heels.
They seem to have a metallic finish to them, which add to the WOW factor of the ensemble.
So if you’re looking for a power suit of your own, you might not need to buy a brand new one. Just style a tweed jacket in the proper way to get the same results as Amandla.
