Edgy Milan-based designer Off-White knows a thing or two about mixing shizz up. Case in point? This two-tone suit jacket/dress that made its debut on the spring runway, birthing the idea that workwear styled with streetwear (note the red kicks and everyday tee) can create something super-doable.

Sure, throwing on an oversized, double-breasted check blazer (that has an uncanny resemblance to your dad's 9-to-5 vibe) and matching it with high-top sneaks sounds like hell — but it looks like heaven, for real. Do it like Hailey B and boss the look with a pair of obscenely large hoop earrings and a cute AF top knot.
