Freaky Friday: Betsey Johnson-Get the Look!

This week my inspiration for Freaky Friday is the always freaky, fun, and fabulous Betsey Johnson! Her warm-weather collection showcases a signature over-the-top wild aesthetic, but the outfits are also girly, funky, and totally sexy! Unlike many other designers whose freaky clothes are made just to put on a show for the red carpet or in an editorial spread-I think that the Betsey Johnson look is wearable.  So, I've found some affordable pieces that are inspired by fashion's wild-child and her warm-weather runway show.

Betsey Johnson
Spring 2012 RTW:

This rock-and-roll maxi dress, plus the leather lace-up boots, plus the dramatic hair, equals cool-girl chic.

This high-waist animal print bottom paired with a semi-sheer black crop-top and open-weave cardigan creates an undeniably sexy look, that isn't trying too hard.

This look is young, fresh, and girly.  But the tight, shiny leggings with those killer punk boots keep the outfit from looking too sweet.

One word: Bombshell. Although most of us couldn't get away with wearing this look on the street, I can't help but wish it was acceptable to do so.

This look is MADE for a rock star, or for those of us who want to dress like one.  The black studded body-con clothes paired with a hot pink bra and hot pink booties remind me of Rhianna or Katy Perry.

 Finally, this loose-fitting, off-the-shoulder mini-dress is cool and funky, yet relaxed.  The sunglasses make the look perfect for a summer festival.

This Friday I think that we can all incorporate some of Betsey Johnson's style into our own.  Her design aesthetic is certainly bold and daring, but no so freaky that it's intimidating. 

 What's your favorite Betsey look?
