What do you think of when it comes to Debbie Harry’s iconic style? Perhaps what immediately comes to mind are monochromatic looks, denim, and stripes. Are you kidding me? Dig a little bit deeper, Debbie Harry is so much more than that. She has the power to wear all types of different prints and fabrications and look absolutely divine without any criticism. She truly is a style chameleon. Not just anyone can pull it off, but if you’re Debbie Harry, you surely can.
Debbie’s aura of punk style can clearly be seen through such fabrics as alluring velvet, classic leather, and delicate chiffon. Although these fabrics are all very different from one another in the hand and weight of the fabric, they come together when exemplified by Debbie Harry. A soft and more feminine side can be shown when wearing a nice hue of cranberry velvet pants or leggings. A tougher side can be portrayed when charcoal grey leather pants, boots, or a jacket is worn. And, you can be edgy, feminine, and slightly sexy in a sheer chiffon top paired with a bralette showing a little bit of skin but not exposing too much. An unexpected leather dress is also an unexpected mix of edgy and femininity. None of these fabrics can go wrong if you’re trying to channel Debbie in your wardrobe. She is the perfect example of versatility. So keep them guessing and wanting more from your style, instead of sticking to monotonous textiles and prints. Not only could she pull off three completely different types of fabrics, she can also adore her fans and fashionistas in an array of prints. From abstract paint blotch patterns to organic lines and to a variety of animal prints, such as leopard, zebra, tiger, and giraffe, she truly has an eye for understated fashion. Printed jumpsuits, dresses, tops, and jackets are necessities in your wardrobe. You may find these prints to be a little out there and maybe hard to wear, but paired with the right fabrics and an ‘IDGAF’ attitude, you can’t go wrong. Not only do these prints draw attention to the eye, but they also give the illusion of added texture to each ensemble. With the illusion of texture in prints and wearing fabulous fabrics, you are sure to be the envy of all your friends.
These prints and fabrications aren’t off limits exclusively to Debbie, you too can channel Debbie in your wardrobe. With the comeback of 70’s fashion in today’s market, velvet, leather, chiffon, animal, and abstract prints are all the rage. This tough, yet, pretty girl knows exactly how to stick with her edge, but allowing her toughness to remain pretty through the combination of fabrics and prints that one my not always imagine go together and completely owning it. You too can be a style chameleon. So, don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, have that ‘IDGAF’ attitude, and be that edgy pretty girl you know you are deep down inside. There’s a Debbie in all of us.
