STYLE GURU STYLE: Distressed Apparel

April 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

I was incredibly inspired by the Kanye West x adidas fashion show that presented his fall ready-to-wear collection. I am a huge fan of Kanye West as a musical artist and as a person, so naturally I’m also a massive fan of his fashion collection. There is much controversy surrounding Kanye and whether he should be a fashion designer, but personally, I think that he has just as much of a right as the rest of us. His show had a very futuristic-grunge vibe to it, and it was not displayed like your typical fashion show may be. Instead of walking down a runway, models came out in lines and stood in front of the audience. Eerie, nondescript music was played and then the next line came up to the front. I found it incredibly exciting and innovative to watch, and it caused me to admire Kanye even more.

The military elements of the show were also very intriguing to me. Many of the different items featured rips, making the models appear very tough. I decided to try this out in my own wardrobe! I purchased a pair of light wash, ripped boyfriend jeans and I’m totally in love. They give me just the right amount of edge, while still making me look very put together. I paired these jeans with a maroon crop top and my favorite light leather jacket. For accessories I kept it simple and all gold: gold watch and chain. Overall, this ensemble made me feel incredibly confident (almost as confident as Kanye).
