Skater punk and 1940’s glamour – fuse them together and what do you get?

The keys to achieving Gwen Stefani’s style of course.

Anybody who thought having a baby would throw Gwen Stefani off her style stride clearly doesn’t have a keen understanding of the fashion-obsessed pop star and designer.

While we have noticed an increased reliance on every new mother’s go-to hue, basic black (the better to hide both spit-up and those five stubborn post-pregnancy pounds), leave it to Stefani to translate this potentially ho-hum look into crisp, on-trend, black-and-white ensembles keeping her signature futuristic-vintage vibe.

She’s even essayed horizontal as well as diagonal stripes and come out a winner—is there nothing this style icon can’t do?
