Nasty Gal’s February 2012 Lookbook: High-Waist Cut-Offs, Glam Hippie Style, & More!

San Francisco-based Nasty Gal is certainly channeling California hippie style for spring (and making us all wish we could head to the beach!) The crocheted bathing suits, super ragged cut-offs, exposed brassieres, and high-waist floral shorts look like they’ve been ripped straight from The Cobrasnake’s party photos, with some vertiginous, studded heels to add to the more glam nighttime mix of cut-out dresses and spacy metallic motorcycle jackets.

Check out the full collection below!

Nasty Gal Says: Denim & Metallics Are Better Than Ever For Fall 2011

Browsing a recent Nasty Gal lookbook will get you totally revved up for the holiday shopping season, with destroyed denim cut-off shorts, oversized tops, and tons of metallic jewelry. The formula maintains throughout the photo shoot, layering cardigans and outerwear-fit-for-indoors over basic knits and denim. Gold chains and belts are added to the mix, along with killer shoes (try black platforms peppered with studs and spikes), and wild hair. The shimmering burnt-gold cocktail dress is a dream come true—we can’t stop thinking about pairing it with a vintage denim jacket and hitting the dance floor!

You can’t take the ’70s denim revival any further than this (unless you wear these with flare leg jeans).

Nasty Gal’s Newest Arrival: Denim Patchwork Bustier

Looking for a way to spice up your denim collection? Nasty Gal has a few ideas, one of which is this sassy cropped bustier in patchwork denim, dubbed the Shakuhachi Patch Denim Bustier. It’s partially lined with hidden snap closures, straps, and belt loops. Bohemian brand Shakuhachi is known for less-structured, flowing sheer skirts as of late, but they’ve impressed us with this flirty piece. Want more good news? Right now they’re giving away a free denim tote bag with each order at their official site! (Note that this offer does not apply to the nasty gal site.)


Score this denim bustier at Nasty Gal for $168. Like the cut-off shorts? Those are up for grabs too! Images via Nasty Gal.

Spring Styling! Light Wash Denim On Nasty Gal

Funny that an e-commerce site which consistently has the most adorable photo shoots in town burst onto the scene with the name “Nasty”, but if this is Nasty, we don’t wanna be nice. Nasty Gal‘s front page is currently a spring styling spectacular. We couldn’t help but gush with you over this band groupie meets neo-70s bombshell outfit. Light wash skinny jeans are cuffed to make way for epic Jeffrey Campbell peep toe platforms. A casual gray t-shirt is matched with bangles, oversize sunglasses, a thin belt, and the token wide-brimmed hat. This balance of swanky-casual is a prime example of warm weather jeans coming out to play. So, are you ready to get nasty?
