“It’s a very rock ‘n’ roll attitude with the fuzzy sweater and slick vinyl pants―all in black. It reminds me of Blondie.”

2. The High Drama Evening Gown

“This is the modern way to do streetwear now. I would wear a fantastic fur coat with a sophisticated outfit, but the new generation throws it over a sweatshirt.”

Shop the Look: Caban Coat in Ivory and Black Dotted Fur, “Love Me Forever or Never” Boyfriend Hoodie, Worn Black Mid Waisted Skinny Jean, Niki 105 Asymmetrical Ankle Boot

4. The Patchwork Mini Skirt

“I told Anthony to make longer skirts for me because I like them to the knee! For younger girls it’s chic to show off your legs but keep it more covered up on top. It’s all about balance.”

Shop the Look: Aran Knit Turtleneck Sweater, Patchwork Asymmetrical Mini Skirt, Classic Paris Skinny 105 Pump in Electric Blue Suede
