Alexander Wang is sure to get the nod from the downtown set with pieces like this geared to add cool urban charm to any outfit.

We found this Alexander Wang cage stretch skirt on sale at, but the T by Alexander Wang version is much more do-able at $98.

Try this with an oversized, heathered jersey long-sleeved tee, like the Soft Joie Radha Top, to balance the tight fitting skirt. This semi-sheer, V-neck jersey top features an asymmetrical hem, double-layered cuffs and long dolman sleeves that add attitude to the basic black and grey.

To accessorize, we chose a STEVEN bootie from last fall- a nice departure from the obvious choice of an uber-sexy platform. We suggest the LINORE BLACK LEATHER bootie from Steve Madden. Not only is it on SALE, but it is a total wardrobe builder and pairs nicely with leather leggings for fall.

You have got to love our Forever 21 studed messenger bag for $28! The heavy gromet flap is edgy without going gothic. We think Mr. Wang would approve.
