Like every other woman out there, I am Alexander Wang obsessed!!!!!!!! I like to think I tend to beat to my own drum, but sometimes a designer is so good that he/she takes over our collective consciousness. I am sure I will write about AW many times throughout the coming months, but now I just want to focus on how you can start to bring this fall's biggest trend, rock-n-roll into your summer wardrobe.
I was at the Standard Grill the other night and was inspired by one of the hostesses. She was so summer, rocker chic that I went on a search for some pieces that could emulate the look. Of course, Alexander Wang has the perfect item, his Jersey Skirt With All Over Cage...even love the description. This skirt comes straight from the Rock-n-Roll Hall Of Fame...a little 80's inspired, crazy edge, raw sex appeal all wrapped up in a sophisticated little package. If you are thinking, sophisticated hmm...all I can say is that it is in my fashion fantasy world.
So how do you wear this oh-so hot little number now??? So simple ladies..."summerize" it with the perfect white tee. I would go with something a little looser fitting...tucked in or out and belted. I also love the idea of something off the shoulder to create some angles on top. Add some vertiginous cage sandals, some statement jewels (go harder edged) and you will be so music industry/downtown fab!!! In the fall, this skirt become your modern answer to your boring old pencil skirt and yes, with the right pieces you can wear it to work...I am not crazy I promise....more to come when the weather turns.
Rock-n-Roll is here to stay, so start to embrace your inner "metalista" and groove into mid-summer with truly inspired pieces from AW. Time to make the BIG statement!!!!
