Alté fashion is main character fashion. So if you’re looking to channel your main character energy, disguise as a Gen Z or just generally kill it at an alté party, here’s what you need to do.
Nobody ever got hurt by adding some extra inches to their height. So throw out your slides, Moses sandals and flat shoes, and invest in platform shoes and booted heels.
Small tops are in
The smaller the top, the better. Next time you go to a party, just throw on a crop top or mesh tops with your mum jeans, cargo or leather pants, and you’re ready to go.
Oversized clothes too
Depending on the alté aesthetic you’re going for, you either wear small or baggy clothes — there’s no in-between.
Invest in leather
Leather gives bad bitch energy like nothing else does, so why not?
Don’t be scared of colours
Most people think it’s about wearing neon, but it’s more about being ready to try different colours. You could spot mismatched pastel colours and still kill it.
Have interesting hair
Be as creative with your hair as you are with your clothes. So whether it’s locs or dyed hair, go for it. And don’t forget to accessorise with beads, cowries or trinkets.
Rings and heavy accessories, always
Accessories add an edge to your outfit. And if you’re trying to absolutely kill the party, you need to come prepared. From knuckle rings to bracelets, chains and earrings.
Bucket hats or scarves? Both!
There’s no point restricting yourself to just one head covering when you can go all out and use everything.
Glasses make you bougie
Glasses with small or wide frames, black or coloured, round or rectangular, go all out. It’s never too late to wear glasses either, so feel free to throw on a pair of shades before you step out at night.
You don’t need a lot of makeup
Even though it’s perfectly fine if you go for a full-face beat with graphic liners, it’s not essential. You could simply line your lips and eyes, shade your brows and apply lip gloss or dark lipsticks.
