Juxtaposing jarring styles in one look is something that current street-style trends thrive on. Alexander Wang's tan loafers paired with rolled-up beige track pants is undoubtedly risky and don't expect any help from the nude make-up. This is a look reserved for the young and the beautiful.

Both Wang and Marc Jacobs have perfected the art of mash- up streetwear. The key is to include one key item that lifts the look. This sheer knit, crop top leaves you in no doubt that the wearer has a sexy edge and pulls it into the right side of bag lady chic. And of course the ultimate wear-it-well secret is individuality. To flawlessly pull off a look like this, you have to have an imagination and attitude that radiates independent style.
