Let's Hear it for the Boys

Every season we see many designers produce amazing collections that influence our fashions and styles of the moment. Thanks to the Internet, Fashionistos can now instantly connect with designers and brands as well as getting front row seats to their shows. With that means trends and styles can influence the fashion community instantaneously. The last few seasons there has been heavy inspiration from the ‘90s grunge, a la Kurt Cobain. Designers like Raf Simmons and Rick Owens have really taken the rocker style and made it chic. By mixing textures and contrasting black with white, this Fashionisto puts together a look that is chic, punk and street.

This Fashionisto wears a basic black button T-shirt that is layered with a black, vintage leather biker jacket. This is a classic jacket that every Fashionisto should invest in. He pairs a black studded snapback hat to add to the rocker vibe. To contrast the black grunge upper half, he wears a pair of do it yourself (DIY) bleached, ripped jeans. The white jean contrast with the black leather jacket gives a strong statement and keeps his look modern and fresh. To complete his look, he wears a pair of black and charcoal gray Nike Air Jordan Retro 7 sneakers. He decides to end his grunge fashion look with a pair of streetwear, hip-hop shoes which keep the look fashionable as well as fun.  This Fashionisto proves that traditional street punk wear can be fashionable when done tastefully.

Hint: Try experimenting with different styles in one look. This Fashionisto incorporates the punk rock style with a streetwear twist. You can try your own combinations of different styles and making them one.  For instance, you can wear a traditional prep outfit of polo, sweater and loafers, but for the pants wear a pair of faux leather pants to add rocker appeal. By mixing styles you can create interesting looks and switch up the monotony.
