McQ Alexander McQueen Fall-Winter Biker Chic Goes Grunge

McQ Alexander McQueen reveals its Autumn-Winter womenswear collection with great street style code looks. The Autumn season is focused on straightforward silhouettes, laid-back and layered shapes. Personally, I find these contemporary outfits to be like biker chic goes grunge. We see baggy, cream white cricket sweaters, leather jackets, asymmetric chiffon skirts, blue denim, culottes, shiny silver tailored jackets worn with matching miniskirts, corset-like leather belts, leopard print cover-ups. All in all, if you do like grunge, punk and bad-girl influence elements, then I highly recommend to look through this collection.
