In a world of fashion contradictions, Gwen Stefani delivers one of my favorite fashion contradictions of them all during her L.A.M.B Fall 2012 presentation – Geek Chic. A collection filled with hounds tooth prints, retro plaids from the 60’s and pops of neon greens and electric reds, it undoubtedly displayed Gwen Stefani’s quirky-guide to fashion. From cotton stretched plaid pencil skirts to oversized hounds tooth menswear coats, this collection had no shortage of black and white contrasts – which without a doubt left me wanting more expressive color. Known for her great accessories, the L.A.M.B collection was filled with beautiful satchels, bowler bags, platform shoes & nOir by L.A.M.B jewelry to round out the looks. Fortunately, just when you thought you had the entire collection figured out, Stefani delivers “stand out” pieces that could easily be infused into anyone’s Fall wardrobe and makes Fall Fashion fun again. Check out a few of my favorite looks below and share which collection designs means “Geek Chic” to you.
