Kiss, the punk nouveau girl on the left, has been on Style Defined before but I loved her eye makeup the other night so had to share…
It’s interesting how you can see the peaks and valleys of certain trends. A few seasons ago shredded clothing was fresh on the runway and then of course it was all over the streets. This is one of the few people I saw with something shredded on this season. So while this is on its way out as a trend I liked it here because the way it’s shredded reminded me more of antique lace than a punkish persona. This old fashioned vibe continues with the great pale blue cape and the vintage bag. Her single braid worn forward with the big fur hat finishes the look.
This is kind of a punk remix and there’s something about the Docs (left) and suspenders that make me feel like there is a sort of UK edge to it all. I love the mixing of the formal element of the vest with the less than conventional fishnet. They kind of look like they all got dressed from the same closet and could easily mix and match their outfits in other ways as well.
A little more extreme…a little more literal. Tracy is wearing outerwear/underwear with chains by Brian Stanziale held up by suspenders and tights so perfectly ripped that they’re patterened. (don’t know if they came that way or if it’s a DIY) This photo proves Attitude (with a capital “A”) goes a long way in working a look.
Since NYFW is fast approaching I thought I’d post one of the photos that I took last fashion week but somehow didn’t make it onto the blog during the season. I think this look is interesting because in a way she’s not wearing much: shorts that are so small you see the top banding on her nylons and a top that is sheer enough to clearly see her lingerie underneath. What makes it –I won’t say classy, but definitely not trashy!– is the simplicity of the top and it’s higher neckline. Also the neutral color palette and hair pulled back into a simple ponytail.
These girls are kind of working a ’90s grunge vibe which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. What I’m looking at here though is the suspenders. When I was in Madrid recently I saw an amazing pair of acid green cotton pants with suspenders. I tried them on in the store and while they were very “Y-3″ they weren’t enough “me” to justify buying them. If I had though, I know I’d keep at least one – if not both – of the suspenders down…but these aren’t the only times I’ve seen suspenders so, like the overalls, I wonder if these are just blips on the screen or retro revivals?
