I'd like to think the fashion world is always ahead of the game and, last Fall, knew the world was going to unravel. Yikes — am I being a killjoy? It's just that a throw of Spring runways sent wrinkled, undone, mismatched, crinkled, off-kilter clothes into the mix. I like it. Disheveled chic is promising to be all the rage.
The funny thing is, this look is very calculated. Many clothing items and accessories come into play. It's not minimal, it's not tidy, but it requires styling skills. Take some notes from the fashion farm of Burberry (left). From the floppy hat, to the asymmetrical (rumpled) cardi, to the thrown-on trench, to those delish ombre pants, this girl appears wonderfully nonchalant. Looking like you rolled out of bed never looked so good.
To see some more disheveled chic,
