The fashion forecast says TOUGH. Silver, gold, chrome, nickel and black crystal embellishments. Studs, studs, everywhere. Moto boots. HARDWARE. Sam Edelman has even come out with a jewelry line that is totally boss.
So not only did he make us fall in love with his girly spikes and studs, he has gone ahead and made us lust after his jewels. As with all of Sam’s designs, he makes it easy to dress around the accessory. Slap on a pair of leather skinnies, a white graphic tee, wear a fishtail braid, paint some red on those lips, Sam’s jewels and you are good to go. Feeling girly? Top knot, LBD, pink lips, and my guy Sam. That is all you need. Tough and incredibly chic is the look. The best part about his jewels and shoes? They are mixable. Sam Edelman makes sure (yay!) that none of us will get too matchy matchy. That would be boring.
Wouldn’t you rather be mixed media in a matchy matchy world?
Clothing wise, NYFW has been chock full of tough chic, naturally. For example, Kenneth Cole. He added the perfect splash of color to each ensemble, and the colors went with the whole tough chic vibe. I’d love for someone to point out an outfit where a red lip simply won’t go. That’s right. Impossible. Leave it to Kenneth Cole to be provocative, yet relaxed and feminine. Seriously amazing.
Hangin’ Tough. Thanks, New Kids on the Block.
