Walk of Shame Chic

Sienna Miller

Kate Moss

Agyness Deyn

Ladies, take pride in your "walk of shame."

According to The London Times, it is now very appropriate to wear that sequined Proenza Schouler Pieced dress at nine in the morning. Better yet, pair it with neon tights and some Louboutins, and you are now the epitome of the WOS (walk of shame) chic.

There's clearly some truth to this. Style icons like Agyness Deyn, Daisy Lowe, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Alice Dellal are championing the WOS chic with their messy 'dos, chipped nail polish and smudged eyeliner, and tons of self-proclaimed MySpace sartorialists are following suit.

"Being a little rough around the edges is a good thing," said designer Alice Temperley to The Times. "You look like you are living a little." Her dresses, available at Neiman Marcus and NET-A-PORTER.COM embody the classic, London's "It" girl look that blurs the line between morning and morning-after -- perfect for WOS chic.

Granted, it's probably safe to avoid the Lohan-esque stumbling sans pants. But otherwise, feel free to forget the hairbrush, and wear your metallics and stilettos with confidence, anytime of day.
