STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bondage-Inspired

Years before 50 Shades of Grey even hit the spotlight, designers across the board have been inspired by BDSM throughout their pieces. Top designers like Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Jean Paul Gaultier have exhibited this in their pieces throughout the years. Pieces incorporate great amounts of leather, from dresses, coats and pants to shoes; not mention the sheer fabrics in neutral colors. It is without doubt that Mr. Grey would be very proud.

Many other artists like FKA Twigs, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have exhibited their appreciation for BDSM throughout their ensembles in recent music videos and everyday wear. Integrating leather and neutral color pieces to your outfit will certainly make you look and feel fierce. This week’s ensemble would indisputably make anyone feel fierce.
