White Trash!

Another week, another vaguely ironic new look, ho-hum. This week I'm all about a sort of trashy 80's Maddona Punk thing, as worn by my favourite androgynous model Laura Hollins (AKA Agyness Deyn- I know her real name ‘cos we're from the same town, holla!)

She looks a bit of a mess here, but let me break this look down for you.
1) Long t-shirt or jumper. The best kinds are the ones that are massive and really out of fashion, as opposed to ones you'd find in New Look, try TJ Hughes or something….Band t-shirts are defiantly acceptable here, but none of your skinny ass girl fit Paramore t-shirts, I wanna see someone rocking a massive hair metal t-shirt in a completely ironic way. Believe.

2) Leggings, or at a push thick wool tights, preferably in a light colour. Fat thighs all round, woo-hoo!

3) Doc Martens, old-skool walking boots or, if you're boring, black chucks (I have a niggling feeling that black chucks are on their way back in- you heard it here first!) Possibly also wear knee length walking style socks, British Sea Power style, but I'm not sure on this one yet, keep your eyes on it though.

4) A Biker-ish Jacket is probably the most important part of this look. Agyness wears a leather one with a sheepskin collar, but there’s a load of cheap fake leather jackets hanging around at the moment so all you animal loves are safe.

Ok, so you have the look down. I'd say wear it with your hair curly, or crimped (are the Mighty Boosh to blame for this years "hot hair look"??) and tied back with a scrap of fabric or a fat ribbon. Accessorise with a long chain, one of those gold hearts would be fine, try some silly 80's bracelets and chunky hoops earrings (gold of course- the earrings)You could go for 80's makeup as well, but you might be locked up on charges of fashion insanity.

Next week: How the Fresh Prince of Bel Air has the answer to all your style needs
or not, depending on my mood at the time.

(Updated on Feb 5th, I ain’t never satisified!)
