Alternative Style File: Caught in the HurricaneBy
It’s hurricane season, and waves of fashion are about to break.
Nature is powerful, beautiful, awe-inspiring and deadly, which makes it sound a lot like a femme fatale. No wonder they refer to her as “mother” earth. If your closet should happen to get caught in the fashion hurricane, just remember the Autumn clothing and accessory mantra: pattern plus texture plus metal detailing equals fabulous.
The idea of found fashion has been floating around for years like a piece of errant driftwood, and it’s time to let the message out of the bottle. From twigs and leaves, to rope weave and old keys, if you can wash it, you can paint it, polish it, weave it and wear it.
One of the best things about grunge styling and its revival is that layers and antiquing still reign supreme. Think of it as being a princess in the wasteland. The beauty of a pretty face offsets the dinge of weathered canvas every time in a way that’s so perfectly of the moment.
