Alexander Wang: jeans, sweaters, shoes and accessories for the ultimate casual look

Alexander Wang – The designer started his career as a college dropout. Born in San Francisco, his professional career began in New York, where the label’s flagship store is still located today. In addition to running his own label, Alexander Wang was creative director for Balenciaga. Now he has been designing fashion and accessories for quite a few years. The fashion house has managed to make a name for itself in recent years, which is hard to imagine streetwear without. Fancy shoes and accessory designs are the driving factor here. This change moves far away from the original ideas of Cristóbal Balenciaga, who was particularly known for his extravagant, fancy ball gowns and his haute couture.

Alexander Wang continues to regularly present new collections under his own name. However, the never-resting designer does not shy away from collaborations with other fashion houses. Wang has already released collections together with Adidas and H&M. These collections are often characterized by the color black and are particularly characterized by the combination of different fabrics and unusual cuts, which make his designs so special. The creations are significantly influenced by the Californian West Coast flair and enjoy great popularity.

Alexander Wang has designed several collections and runway shows. Get an overview of his collections and designs and the diversity of his clothing. Alexander Wang has received a lot of praise for his collaboration with Adidas, a brand that supports the streetwear image that Wang also relies on.

Tops: Cropped tops, hoodies and shirts.

The tops that make up the style are different. On the one hand, you can wear casual crop tops, on the other hand, shirts and hoodies do very well. Here is the possibility to directly add another element to the look by opting for ‘boyfriend fit’, so everything can be a bit wider. But be careful: you should make sure you have a good mix of tight and loose pieces so that the outfit doesn’t look too much like a couch outfit. The model off-duty look just plays with the idea of a normal casual outfit, but the styling differs mainly in that it is chosen and put together with care.

These pieces from Alexander Wang will help you get closer to your goal:

  • Bodycon Mock Neck Top
  • Cinched Button-Down Shirt
  • Cropped Curdoroy Hoodie
  • Logo Elastic Sweater

Elegant blazers and jackets in boyfriend cut

The outerwear decision is also influenced by your previously chosen piece and how you want the outfit to look. On the one hand, there is the option to go in the direction of casual-chic. Also, a casual-cool way may be chosen. If you’re going for a smart-casual look, you’ll find a selection of blazers at Alexander Wang to help you complete your outfit:

  • Single Breasted Blazer
  • Cropped Trench Jacket

If your ultimate look is more of the casual-cool route, we recommend the following products:

  • Cropped Moto Jacket
  • Falling Back Jacket
  • Game jacket
  • Padded Track Jacket

Relaxed pants and jeans

What is almost guaranteed to be said about the model off-duty look is that the bottom of choice is almost always a pair of pants. Whether it’s jeans, shorts or track pants, it doesn’t really matter as long as it matches the rest of the composition. The trousers by Alexander Wang are not only popular with models, but also with other starlets. For example, Kylie Jenner’s Logo Elastic Leggings were featured on her Instagram profile, sparking a veritable run on the designer’s wares. But jeans and shorts with a paperbag waistband are not to be neglected. These emphasize the waist particularly beautifully and give enough room for the hips. High-waist models have been particularly popular in recent years, but recently low-waist models have also become increasingly popular again, heralding the renaissance of the Y2K trend.

Athleisure for the relaxed days

Athleisure, i.e. sporty clothing with everyday potential, has become a real hit in recent years. Jogging pants are no longer an expression of laziness or the intention to do sports. For a long time now, sportswear has become part of the daily wardrobe and can always be found on the street. It’s not for nothing that the sportswear market has continued to grow in recent years. Alexander Wang has also added sporty pieces to his range. Not all of these pieces qualify as athleisure per se, as the designs are not designed to be worn as sportswear. The aim is rather to let the essence of sportiness flow into the creations.

  • Logo Elastic Legging
  • Compact Logo Legging
  • Stretchy Curdoroy Pants
  • Foundation Terry Sweatpants

Must-have accessories: bags, scrunchies and jewellery

For the perfect model off-duty style, the right accessories must of course not be missing. Absolute must-haves are sunglasses in geometric shapes, tennis socks and earrings. Especially popular are small golden creoles, which are well accentuated with pinned up hair. Equally, bags and even such simple things as scrunchies in the right design make an absolute eye-catcher that enhances the simple outfit. Accessories are really what complete the look and give it the final touch. Alexander Wang has these little eye-catchers on offer:

  • Scrunchy bag
  • W Legacy Bags
  • Wang Sport Backpack
  • Scrunchie Rhinestone Bracelet

While he was an accomplished streetwear designer, his luxury fashion portfolio was limited. With his sophisticated designs Wang still managed to convince his critics and cleverly combined elements that were found in his streetwear fashion with the chic designs that he sent on the runway for Balenciaga. Cristóbal Balenciaga and Alexander Wang have one thing in common: they both rely on fancy tailoring. Creating structures through cut and fabric instead of relying on pompous decorations.
