Always inspired by David Bowie’s beguiling fashion sense, we looked to the androgynous glam seen in press photos from his fourth album Hunky Dory (which came out 42 years ago today) to inform this fabulous look for winter. Paired with HABITUAL Harlow Flares, the checkered fur and giant lizard ring make quite the retro-modern statement.
If Jennifer Lawrence playing a female warrior isn’t enough to make you like Hunger Games, the costumes with looks from Alexander McQueen and other designers should catch your attention. The scarf-cum-sweater vest that Katniss Everdeen wears over her father’s leather jacket was what made us take notice. While the original is the work of Los Angeles knitwear designer Maria Dora, we found a few others that evoke the feminine practicality of a huntress uniform. Bless’ Triangle Scarf has a toggle that allows the chunky knit to be worn several ways, while Yokoo’s Nantucket Cowl simply slips over the head. For a more urban-appropriate look, opt for Oak’s Funnel Neck Poncho.
For off-duty dressing without the resignation of sweats, we turn to separates in sensual materials and edgy prints, like Mary Katrantzou’s modal-and-cashmere Landscape scarf, paired with our comfy-but-glam Habitual Eve in Deep, a Nordstrom exclusive. Add a brimmed hat by WoodWood to ward chills with on-trend style, and you’re totally not in business. Also pictured: Protagonist tee in 3-ply silk and Rag & Bone Bannon booties.
