100 Atypical Avant-Garde Looks

From Avant-Garde Pantsuit Fashion to Disturbing Couture Editorials

— January 22, 2014 — Fashion
Fashion rules were meant to be broken and no look sticks to that motto better than avant-garde looks.

Avant-garde looks are designed for the bold and adventurous target market -- the Lady Gagas of their peers who don't see anything wrong with showing up to their prom in a platforms equipped with a ponytail or taking a walk on the beach sporting bling out and overly crystallized shades. These hot and rebellious looks go over the heads of the usual fashionista and land perfectly with the aid of their golden avant-garde wings.

These looks won't appeal to the wallflowers of the bunch or those who can't handle attention, but they will call out to anyone looking to make a statement.
