Street Seen: Are You a Wangster?

wangster0916a
You've seen them around, those cool-looking girls with long hair, in ripped tights and denim, menswear-inspired pieces, and black, black, black. You may even be one of them. Alexander Wang's designs have trademarked the downtown tomboy/model (see: Erin Wasson) look that originally inspired him. But girls have been taking on this street-friendly look internationally, resulting in a wave of tough-looking followers, best described as "Wangsters" (a term coined by Aussie fashion blogger IamAshleigh.) For a photo definition of this stylish neologism, check out our international selection of specimens of this quickly multiplying species.
