Boys & Girls Club | Cassie Rocks Obesity and Speed for Status Magazine

Singer and model Cassie Ventura was recently featured on the cover of Status Magazine rockin’ a look that was sexy & edgy with an urban flair.

Graphic prints, studded pants, mesh tops, and tanks with cheeky slogans were used in the shoot (not to mention some wicked accessories- the cross sunglasses? Major), and I was impressed with the overall looks – it has a very sweet but street vibe. Over the last few months, Cassie has worked on some very fashion forward editorials to build buzz as she prepares to release her sophomore album; a classically beautiful girl, she’s stepped out of her comfort zone and stepped her style game waaay up.

Whenever I like the styling on a photoshoot, I always check to see which designers they’re wearing (gotta stay in the know!). For this editorial, pieces from the label Obesity and Speed were used throughout (both the men and women’s collection).
Launched in 2003, Obesity and Speed is a NY based label created by Lyz Olko and Josh Conner; the name is derived from song lyrics of a punk band that they were fans of when they were younger.

Perfect for those that favor a dark, underground look (think shredded tees, mesh crop tops, and slouchy tees with Goth inspired designs), their clothing can easily be made more “conservative” with a cardigan or blazer, denim trousers, or topped with a cool leather jacket.

Wasted Effort Tank, $75
Lace Trapez Top, $135
F*ck Off Tank, $75

The longer men’s tanks (like the ones Cassie wears) are surprisingly versatile:  they work well with leggings and flat boots for a super casual look or leather pants and heels to keep it funky.
