Get the Look: Agyness Deyn
To capture her style, try envisioning a polished, female version of Joe Strummer of the Clash. That is to say, look for boyish silhouettes, shrunken jackets, and sharp lines. The perfect Agyness-inspired day look begins with a great leather jacket. This Miramar Bomber Jacket ($34.80, Forever 21) is biker meets babe, while fitting nicely into a tight budget. If you've got a bit more cash at your disposal, try this Mossimo Black Leather Moto Jacket in Ebony for $99.99 at Target.
Toss on a band shirt, perhaps the Strummer-approved The Clash Breakout T-shirt ($17.99, Band-Tees.com), and roll up the sleeves to show off a bit of arm muscle. If you're really daring, try a pair of these high-top, retro Converse Sailor Jerry Sneakers for $47 at Piperlime.com to really establish your "devil may care" attitude. Of course, skinny jeans are a natural finish to the outfit. Try these Sweetheart Skinny Jeans for just $20 at Old Navy.
We love Agyness' affinity for crisp button downs, skinny ties, and newsboy caps. This Diesel Black Skinny Tie for $40 at S|SENSE (search "7201M1702") is perfect; who cares that it's made for men? Continue the theme with this Menswear Stripe Newsboy Hat for $9.99 at Target. Menswear for women is the epitome of Agyness. Finish any outfit with a luxe, structured handbag -- it's how she turns the outfit more polished. Try the Primo Limited Loft Tote for $80 at Baghaus.com
But even modern day punks need evening wear, and what better way to maintain an edgy style for chic affairs than to slip into an acid-colored dress. Agyness has gone for both yellow and pink. We suggest this A.B.S. Raspberry Matte Jersey Boatneck Dress for $99 at Bluefly.com.
Agyness Deyn and her punchy style is a fashion world anomaly; just look at any line up of models (with her included of course), and somehow your eye always flocks to Agyness—which is, needless to say, quite the feat. Anyone who can surpass a gaggle of supermodels for attention, purely based on her unique style, is exactly the sort of person we'd like to emulate. And with our guide, it's never been so easy.
