Tear It Up

by The Zoe Report

Once upon a time, many, many Zoe Reports ago, I put the spotlight on Raquel Allegra, an LA-local designer who converts old prisoner tees into new couture treasures. A year and a half later, she is still tearing it up—literally—with her ever-expanding line of destroyed pieces which now includes blazers, skirts, dresses and more. Honing in on one of my top picks from her spring collection, I am totally hung up on today’s Chrysalis Tunic!

Featuring Allegra‘s signature shredding detail and a tie-dye pattern, this soft-as-heaven garment is the missing link in your closet. The perfect throw-it-on-and-go option, it will secure your style in a moment’s notice, thanks to its impeccable draping and sheer aesthetic. Want an idea for how to wear such a tunic? I suggest teaming it with a leather jacket, suede booties and nude polish for a fierce look that no one can touch. xoRZ
