The crisp white button down pants and black pants, with a pleated black skirt and a cleverly layered coat on top, grab attention with their subtlety, all about fit and proportions. Then, as if to say, “I’m here to have fun too,” Lil Nas X threw on clear heeled Rick Owens platforms and a puppy handbag, which turns out to be a perfect accessory for kids. photos – not to mention great way to show off a cool manicure and a handful of silver rings.
