Alexander Wang’s pieces have the kind of look that are equal parts cool and grunge, with a wide-ranging appeal that reaches women everywhere. So, when models walked down the runway topped with fuzzy beanies that read girls, strict, and tender, we knew this look would quickly catch on IRL.
The hats contrasted with the ’90s-style baby bangs, tweed dresses, acid-splatter dresses and Wang’s version of classic Vans high-tops to create the perfect skater-girl persona, which fashion continues to take inspiration from.
Technically speaking, this collection won’t be available for months. But that’s not to say you can’t take a cue from the show and wear your own statement-making beanie with something to say. After all, it was snowing here in New York less than 48 hours ago, and you can’t go wrong with weather-appropriate fashion.
