Ready Made Outfit: Blazing Your Shorts


 From Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2006 Collection

Invoking the spirit of the vintage “English prep
school” look, prominent labels like Alexander McQueen, Dries Van Noten and Alexandre
Plokhov have been doing the unthinkable: combining shorts with blazers.  Actually, it’s not that unthinkable.  AC/DC front man Angus Young is already known
for this signature look.  Even so, it is
possible to achieve this look without looking like a rock n’ roll copycat or
a uniformed boarding schooler.

Runway to Reality: Like a Rolling Stone

Don’t take this homage to the Rolling Stones literally or you’ll be the laughing stock of your circle. Instead, take key pieces – the t-shirt and the blazer (in a different color) – and make your own more wearable version that will translate better on the streets.
