I’m no Jackie when it comes to fashion — I prefer my leopard print and big sunglasses with a little more rawness — but there’s not much from Vanessa Hudgens’ wardrobe I’d steal, either (although girlfriend does do Coachella up right). Except for her collection of ripped and rocker Siwy shorts.
I’ve got two pairs myself — this pair being the trashier of the two. Everyone from Sienna Miller to Kate Moss to Miley have been photographed wearing them, so I realize Siwy’s comfy, laid-back staples aren’t PWT-material exclusively, but I’m secretly dying for a pair of tie-dyed or white shredded shorts. I’ve never been to LA and am not a huge fan of the city’s overall fashion aesthetic, but I’ve got a barely veiled weakness for tacky jean shorts that’s only kept in check by Siwy’s price tag.
What’s your closet tacky trend, and how often do you let if fly?
“It” bags and clothing pieces have finally gotten a bad rap after the 90s and early 2000s: no one wants to look like everyone else anymore. And thanks to a paparazzi culture that gets even more rabid by the week, everything has become instantly recognizable: what scarf Vanessa Hudgens wears to Barneys, Kate Hudson’s favorite plane bag, and Sienna’s go-to beach wrap.
You can tell when an item has been pushed to death by PR — it’s in every campaign and editorial, and often on the red carpet — but that doesn’t mean every “It” item deserves a yawn. I’ll admit I’m still yearning just to touch Alexander Wang’s Coco Duffel and Rocco bags even though Miley Cyrus, Kristin Cavallari and Dakota Fanning have them. Which “it” items are you secretly pining for? An Herve Leger bandage dress? A Marc Jacobs Stam? Lauren Conrad’s collection of plaid button-downs, or those JBrand Houlihan cargos?
