L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani Fall 2012 RTW | ELLE
In addition to teaching an entire generation how to spell "bananas," singer Gwen Stefani is also the creator of several successful fashion lines, including one of our fave celebrity clothing lines -- L.A.M.B. (which stands for love, angel, music, baby). For her Fall 2012 collection, Gwen mixed textures, patterns and colors to create an aesthetic that's both feminine and fashion-forward, with a distinct rock 'n' roll vibe. Needless to say, we're in love with the whole collection!
If you want to recreate that runway-ready look for just a fraction of the price, you've come to the right place. Simply scroll on down to check out three lower-priced versions of outfits from L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani Fall 2012 RTW:
1. Citrus Punch
Dark colors are a cold-weather mainstay and this look from L.A.M.B. is a fantastic way to literally brighten up an otherwise all-neutral outfit. While the pleated mini skirt and biker jacket look fantastic together, the citron yellow top that's layered underneath is what really makes the outfit 'pop.'
Get the Look:
For a similar look, start by pairing a citron yellow long sleeved top with a pleated black skater skirt. A faux leather moto jacket adds a tough vibe, while sheer tights lend coverage and help make the outfit work for fall. Next, add a pair of flat knee-high boots for a casual and comfy look. Finally, accessorize with several edgy rings, like the ones above.
2. Mix Master
Pairing plaid trousers with a bold, graphic striped sweater creates a fresh take on the ever-popular mixed prints trend. We love how the prints in this look don't compete with one another, but instead work together to create a fashion-forward look that's ideal for fall.
Get the Look:
Recreate this look by mixing a striped sweater with a pair of printed plaid jeggings for a fashion-forward, yet casual outfit. Next, add a boost of height and style with a pair of black peep-toe ankle booties. Finally, accessorize with metal-tipped sunglasses for a cool, retro vibe, and add a pair of gorgeous feathered statement earrings for a hint of glam.
3. Plaid Prepster
This look from L.A.M.B. is a great example of how to wear shorts during the colder months of the year. Plaid is a total fall staple, and these yellow-hued plaid shorts look fantastic when paired with a navy blue turtleneck. Knee-high socks and tights help make the shorts practical for autumn, while a bowling bag and oversized glasses add the finishing touches.
Get the Look:
For this outfit, pair a blue turtleneck sweater with yellow-and-blue plaid shorts for a colorful look with a preppy vibe. A pair of black knee-high socks and lace-up oxfords create a chic collegiate look, while a navy bowler bag adds a sleek touch. Finally, accessorize with cat-eye glasses for a polished and stylish outfit you can rock on campus.
