as of late, the tough-chic look (previously seen in the '80s) is what consumers are going gaga for. leather, studs, bustiers, ripped denim, thigh-high boots, smeared eye makeup, biker jackets, dark nail lacquer, mini dresses, and torn sweaters, all items that could be adorning junkies or strippers, are given an haute-couture edge with minimal tweaking and acceptance from the general public. photos of celebrities like taylor momsen in fishnet stockings and holey band tees that reflect her inner badass chick are proof that the trend is still going strong.
and this is where 2010 comes in. while the biker chick look is sure to stick around for some time, some more playful, innocent looks are sure to see the light in the upcoming year. think lolita and baby-dolls, as sweet replaces sexy and the little gamine in all of us has her time to shine.
