opposites attract

I have a split fashion personality. There. I said it. I have been trying to hide it for years in hope that it will change, but no such luck. My split fashion personality means that I don't have a certain look that defines me, a signature style like people such as Dita Von Teese, Kate Moss and Cory Kennedy possess. Let's say, one day I'll wear vintage denim shorts with a white AA t-shirt and a baggy hat, while the other I'll wear a cute, fitted dress with a cardigan and lovely heels. In other words, one day you can see me dressed like Victoria Beckham, the next a little like David Beckham (not that I really can compare myself with these two excellent style inspirators!) No matter how much I try to only choose one look and stick to it, it just simply doesn't work for me.

As this fall is approaching, I have been going through endless runway pictures from all the different collections. Everything from Proenza Schouler to Lanvin, from Burberry Prorsum to Zac Posen, from Matthew Williamson to Balenciaga (I could go on forever!) has impressed me. Still, the two who have impressed me the most are Alexander Wang and Versace. And here you can see that my split fashion personality kicks in yet again. Alexander Wang fronts the bad, rocker chic look with clear references back to the 90s done with a very modern twist, while none other than Versace knows how to wrap up the sophisticated look with the sexy seductive look to perfection.

Versace










I couldn't have chosen better opposites. My dilemma now is how to work these looks and combine them into one, instead of doing the sexy, elegant look one day while the other I work the slightly Courtney Love and Paula Yates look. I'm thinking a cocktail dress and ripped up stockings don't work too good together..or hmmm, maybe they do?
Do you suffer from the split fashion personality disorder too?
If so, between which looks and/or which designers?

Haha, morsomt! Gjør vi ikke alle det? Skifter mellom bad/nice girl looks? En dag er det 70tallet en annen dag rocker chic. Elsker det jeg, da blir det aldri kjedelig. Anna sui og Gucci, men også wang var noen av mine favoritter, men det er jo så mange bra kolleksjoner at det blir vanskelig å velge. Tusen takk for den hyggelige kommentaren din!

Teresa said...

I pretty much look shleppy in anything I wear so any look is miscellaneous to me.

And Alexander Wang, I read he's not using Erin Wasson as stylist anymore for his shows...

Kira Fashion said...

i think it´s great to mix styles and have your own!

a kiss

There are certain people who can have a particular style for a long period of time that continuously works for them. I personally think, for the most part, having one dimensional approach can get quite boring and often leave you in a fashion rut.

It's good to play around with new styles you never felt comfortable wearing or didn't think would work on you.

I think I'm still a little girl inside who loves to play dress up as different characters and it usually comes out in the clothes I wear!

I love the hard-edged looks of Alexander Wang as well as the chic, sophisticated looks of Versace! They both require a sassy, self-assured woman to effectively pull them off.

Dear, we are really the SAME. I have that multiple fashionality... can I call that? It sounds funny, but I guess it's OK, as we still twist it into our own! Also, the styles we love can work for different occasions and they are equally timeless, right?

from sloppy slouchy to polished professional, i think i want them all. i guess everybody who's really interested in fashion have split personalities!

Thanks for your comment! I'm back now with new additions.
Both collections are fabulous, but I have to say I lean more toward the Versace. I love clean, classic lines and flat color-- plus I never could pull off the grunge look. Fantastic post!

Copycat Sasha said...

I have the same problem of not having a definite look, but this year I hope to change it! Alexander Wang's collection is my favorite this season too!

Nay'Chelle said...

My style is so multiple personality. Nice to find someone else like me! Great choices from Versace too.

star anise said...

I know exactly what you mean! I have the biggest split personality disorder when it comes to fashion. I love the way Sienna dresses so freely but I also love what Victoria Beckham wears and her high fashion wardrobe. I can't stay with just one look these days... my personality cries for variety. Sticking with one look would be so boring...

Savvy Mode SG said...

love the flowing dresses from versace. i used to be such fan. i don't have a style as well. i dress according to my mood and the event. i think it's savvy to mix it up at bit. one day, it's conversative tse twin set but cavalli on another day.

Allure said...

That's the thing about fashion. You can play, and have fun with it. And you probably have you own signature style, but it's hard to be impartial with ourselves ;)

**Queen B** said...

i suffer from that fashion split personalitly as well.. i don't have a definite fave designer or style..i like to change alot...too much sometimes.

detour2mode said...

wowwww... the first alexander wang outfitt is just awesome...i want this style this summer...and the versace collection is really good too...maybe i'll have less chance to wear this kind of dress in a day to day basis :-)

coco said...

Yeah I always try different looks. I don't have a 'style', at least I don't think so. I love both Versace and Alexander Wang.

The Clothes Horse said...

I feel the same way. I dress the same a lot but sometimes I feel it's my wardrobe that makes me--part of me wants studs, ripped stockings, and black leather but it just doesn't exist and I can't buy one piece that won't go with anything else I own...boo...
Anyway, I love these inspirations for fall.

STYLE DU MONDE said...

Love both collections!

I love change and to mix things up!

xx

susanne said...

Jeg har det akkurat likt!! En dag vil jeg ha på meg noe liknende Alexander Wang-kolleksjonen, neste dag vil jeg ha på meg et highwaist skjørt med en søt topp nedi og flats, og dagen etter det vil jeg plutselig ha på meg en sexy, eklektisk kjole med belte i livet og høye hæler. Stilen min er ubestemmelig, men i stedet for å prøve å sette noe navn på den, går jeg bare med det jeg elsker, og kaller stilen "meg". :)

Carolina Lange said...

You can wear one and then wear the other, and then mix them!
But if I had to pick only one, I would go for Alexander Wang!

Doriz Jeltzin said...

Jeg foretrekker Wang, men synes de lange kjolene til Versace var veeeldig fine. Spesielt den lilla.

ryder said...
