Alexander Wang’s story is the stuff of fashion legends. While still a college sophomore, the <i>Teen Vogue</i> intern launched a collection of streetwise knits that caused such an industry stir, he was nominated for a CFDA fashion award just two years later. But while finely crafted cashmere sweaters put him on the map, Wang’s ready-to-wear is where his real wow is. From chic, second-skin pants to textured biker jackets and asymmetrical tops, this young star has staying power.
Warmer weekends mean outdoor, bask-in-the-sun brunches; so make sure you’re properly protected with our stylish shades. From sleek designer glasses by Oliver Sweeney and John Varvatos to the classic aviators from Randolph Engineering, blocking UV rays has never looked so good.
Boy/girl, tough/tender. Opposites attract in this dark and moody cache of wearable Wang. A geometric-pattern bustier dress with satin straps is a dramatic standout, while willowy dresses and whispery tops make lovely layering pieces for boxier jackets and vests.
Let us ask you this: If you wear different clothes on the weekends than you do to work during the week, why would your sunglasses not also change? These shades from Tom Ford, Mosely Tribes, Diesel, and others will have you relaxing in style, regardless of where you brunch.
Obsess about these previously unattainable looks no more, as they’re now that much closer to becoming yours. More wallet-friendly but just as enticing are utilitarian-style looks from Nicolas K. and silk blouses and delicate lace or cotton eyelet dresses from Marc by Marc Jacobs, to name a few.
