I’m a huge fan of high-end designers collaborating with mass retailers. I love fashion, but I can’t afford access to a lot of it. That’s why it’s exciting when designers and retailers come together. The result is an affordable and fashionable collection. So it’s no surprise that I was pumped when LaQuan Smith announced his collaboration with ASOS. Below I’ll show you how I styled my favorite pieces from the ASOS x LaQuan Smith collection.
LaQuan Smith isn’t a household name. But the ASOS x LaQuan Smith collection is still highly anticipated. Smith is a young, black designer based in New York. If you follow Beyonce, Rihanna, or Cardi B, you’ve probably seen one of Smith’s designs. Not only does this collection provide more access, but it gives a major platform to a black designer.
It’s no secret that ASOS is one of my favorite retailers. My family’s far from being wealthy so we lived pretty frugally. I was also insecure growing up. So experimenting with fashion was my way of building confidence. ASOS is always my go-to for clothes that are affordable and fashionable. Plus the pieces just make you feel good about yourself. This ASOS x LaQuan Smith collection is bold and sexy which is the epitome of confidence. Best of all, it’s extremely inclusive. The collection is unisex and offers big and tall sizes.
