Most of my favorite things come in pairs. Cookies and cream. Peanut butter and jelly. Fashion and… music. There are music icons turned fashion superstars (cue Rihanna, Kayne and Beyoncé). And then there is the present relationship fashion designers have with music (One of the best parts of a Charlotte Ronson runway show? The mix her sister Samantha creates specifically for the show). That’s right, Fashionistas/os, fashion and music seem to have an intrinsic connection. They are constantly influencing one another.
Recently, music has been heavily influencing the fashion industry in a more apparent way. Ear buds that disappear into your look are now solely reserved for the gym. When it comes to heading to class or rocking out in the library, right now it is all about the headphone. And designers are joining in on the movement. Oscar de la Renta recently did an exclusive line for Beats by Dre that featured real fur. Fashionista favorite brands like Kate Spade, Juicy Couture and Diane von Furstenberg each have expanded their accessories lines to include headphones.
This Fashionisto was on trend with his choice of headphones. Part 90s throwback, part DJ at work, we were totally digging his headphones. The oversized, masculine structure of his headphones was fitting for his overall look. Paired with a rugged, plaid button-down and tight fitting, caramel cords, this Fashionisto proves he is king of the sidewalk.
This week, grab yourself a pair of fashion headphones. It gives you more then one reason to rock your way to class.
