Miss J’s got a fresh tour kicked off and she’s been strutting around on all that energy and creativity. What’s interesting is how low-key and unfussy her style’s become, even as she remains true to her preferences. Every day’s a hard day of work and Miss Lady’s got no time to fuss with fashion. She’s saving all that for the stage.

She looks exactly like what she is: someone who just got done performing her ass off and is ready to kick back and celebrate. We wouldn’t dream of critiquing this look like she was on a red carpet. We’re just tickled at her doing ’80s-flavored Chorus Line cosplay.

This feels like a slightly more dressed-up version of the same thing; like an ’80s backup dancer on tour. Not super-crazy about the tights, which look a little too sheer, but the boots, jacket and ever-present conductor hat all look adorable on her.
