love it or leave it?

Avril Lavigne has been making a lot of headlines lately. Her engagement to Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger raised a whole lot of eyebrows! It isn't just her engagement that has been making news...

Avril recently attended the Magic Fashion and Apparel Trade Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. She was there to promote her fashion line, Abbey Dawn. She wrote a long black skirt, a baggy Abbey Dawn t-shirt, a black fedora, and a pair of bright red glasses, to the event.

Generally, I love Avril's style. (Which I may be in the minority for!) I am a sucker for her glam-punk style. She has a way of bringing a fun, youthful spirit to her fashion!

This outfit, however, fell flat for me. There is something about the baggy shirt and skirt combination that should create an effortless look, but instead makes her look slouchy. When it comes to her accessories, I love the bright red glasses, but hate that fedora. Her makeup looks sloppy, and the faded blue streak in her hair adds to how unpolished Avril appears.

What do you think of Avril Lavigne's look? Love it or leave it?

  9. I am definitely not a fan of this look. I love Avril's fun and fearless personality, but fashion is not her forte. She tried to play with some trends here, but it doesn't work. Great post though, love the commentary.

  10. She is pretty, but I don´t like this look on her. May be the baggy shirt is too much.

  11. I also like her but she is dreadful here!
    Check out my blog too at Miss Tangerine :)

  12. Not my style - but it's good to have celebrities that mix it up a bit & aren't cookie cutter clones!

  18. She is so sweet, but I dont like this outfit. Hope you will visit my blog.

  19. I actually prefer this to her usual style. It looks like she's finally growing up!

  20. i love the glasses.

  21. Not my style.

  22. I say leave it - time to grow up and evolve your style! She's been rocking this look since she was a teen!


  23. i'm not digging her outfit either.

  24. Leave it!

  25. I like her with pink streaks on her hair! Hehe. ;) For me? Leave it! It doesn't look good on her because of how I perceive her character. Haha. <3

  26. Its not something i would choose but i do like Avril x

  27. Oh boy! She could do so much better... It's too bad, really!

  29. Too Sally Jesse Raphael for me with those glasses (maybe I am dating myself with that reference, ha)
    I have never liked her style

  30. Forget the outfit--it's Skrillex hair!!!! :P

  31. uh yea, kind of fell flat for me too...I haven't really been into the punk rock style anyways; but she just looks like she didn't really put much effort into this look. oh love the turquoise streaks in her hair!

  32. I think she wore the clothes to promote the brand--very low key look and why not? She wears it with confidence and she is so cute she can wear anything, anyway!!!
