STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Tear In My Heart

“The songs on the radio are oaky, but my taste in music is your face and it takes a song to come around to show you how…She’s a tear in my heart.” I have been walking around all week with Twenty One Pilots new single “Tear in My Heart” stuck in my head. No matter what I do, I cannot seem to escape it. I switch on the radio and there it is, just waiting for me to turn it up and shout out the lyrics loud and proud for all to hear. What can I say, it’s a catchy song.

Now this Fashionisto isn’t the tear in my heart, but his distressed denim pants just might be. This look takes me back to the days of grunge, when the more disheveled the look, the better. His getup consists of a graphic T-shirt, a pair of awesome jeans and black combat boots. He plays up his look with the help of a few accessories, like his beanie, wide frame glasses and messenger bag.  Nonetheless, his pants are the real stars of the show.

Now I am a big advocate of denim, and wear it for pretty much any and every occasion imaginable. There is so much you can do with it by taking a look at what is happening on the runway with collections likes Marques’Almeida. The designers behind the label know how to use denim in an ingeniously raw manner. They produce these beautiful garments that are refreshingly reminiscent of the ’90s aesthetic, but with a hint of modern sophistication.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “When I first bought these pants they were not nearly as shredded as they are now. Experiment and make your clothing your own.”
