Designers like Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, and Marc Jacobs want you to hit the street with, for lack of a better term, sporty street style. Meant for the fashion-forward girl who likes to rock a little edge with her look, this spring's street style is fun, fast, and anything but generic. For his Spring 2012 collection, Alexander Wang showed off a more gritty clothing line that was athletically inclined and well suited for the concrete jungle. Wang’s collection included mesh filled apparel with pockets made of netting, racing suits, body sculpted knits, and color-blocked leggings. Standout items included perforated PVC jackets with matching leather trim, as seen below. And because safety is always a must, Wang made sure to accessorize his models with floral print motorcycle helmets, which offset the graphic prints. Other accessories included perforated white and black leather head scarves and pointy shoes in fish scale texture. To pull off this look without having to look like an urban warrior, incorporate stand out pieces like a neon anorak or a fun accessory like a mesh backpack to your outfit. No BMX required.
