Cardi B’s preppy grunge look’s colour palette matches her thigh tattoo

"One thing about Cardi is she always on point with fashion," reads one comment beneath Cardi B's latest Instagram post. We couldn't agree more. Scroll down the artist's feed and her unapologetically bold style is easy to see, even in her off-duty 'fits.

Yep, whether she's wowing on the front row in three sequinned gowns in 24 hours during Paris Fashion Week or coordinating with Shakira in a breastplate for the duo's music video, Cardi never fails to deliver a style slay. And her most recent look that earned the aforementioned comment is no exception.

We've heard of clashing patterns, but what about clashing aesthetics? Posing in her spacious hallway (that rivals some of the most luxurious hotels we've ever seen with the XL floral arrangement decorating her console table), Cardi paired an anime crop top with a checked pleated mini skirt for a preppy grunge look.

Knee-high white socks with black bows and platform Mary Jane heels completed the look. Cardi added a further bow in the form of a white ribbon tied in her hair that was pulled into a high ponytail with an XL bouffant. Blair Waldorf could never.

Perhaps the most impressive part of Cardi's attire was the fact she'd managed to perfectly coordinate her ensemble's colour palette to that of her leg tattoo, which peeked out beneath the skirt's micro hemline.

Cardi shared a look at the peacock tattoo that spans her hip in 2020, after the inking was updated ten years on from originally having it done.

Cardi's tattoos are almost as iconic as she is, so we love that she made them a part of her outfit.
