Spring Fashion According to Alexander Allen
Transforming the chic looks from the high fashion runways into every day wearable outfits is more about time management than you would think. However, if you are a high maintenance globetrotter like Toni Braxton, Kimora Lee Simmons, Amerie or the ladies of Making the Band 3, your every fashion move can be prescribed by an expert like celebrity stylist Alexander Allen of Trans4mers Inc.
Allen’s worldwide trend-spotting techniques have helped to craft fashion forward, signature looks for Eve, whom he styles exclusively. Her fashion evolution is a result of Alex’s access to designers and showrooms that many times only service a private clientele.
If you’re not privileged to have someone shopping for you, “there is still no excuse for not looking just as fashionable,” says Allen. “Developing your own signature style and staying fashionable is really about knowing yourself and how much time you have. If you have the time to watch the celebrity news shows and read the style weeklies then by all means. Most women are too busy to stay on every trend.”
But to avoid looking over done, Allen says “You can never go wrong with accessories. You’re less likely to wear too many accessories so choosing trendy accessories paired with basics might already have is clever way to stay fashionable.”
Although the runways are filled with high fashion and, often times, expensive clothing Allen believes you can shop for less expensive brands and create the same looks. He also says that the internet, consignment shops, and mail order clothing are some of the most valuable tools for staying in the company of the fashion elite.
