MALE FASHION ICONS on a Rainy Day / Double Belted


What to do on a rainy day ?  Surf the net , and find cool images !



My outfit : A thrifted dress, 2 woven belts , my hubs Levi's, Tan flats.


Columbia rain hat.


While surfing the web , and wondering what makes certain trends come back around again, I came across the coolest images and had to share them. My first notion was to look at 80's fashion. I lived through the eighties, (barely!) and thought there was nothing really worth remembering about it . Then, I started downloading 80's pop song fav.s of mine and started to remember why this time was so inspirational. Then I got the idea to showcase my 2 most favorite Male Fashion Icons. Two who had STYLE. Creativity and started fashion trends. Here are my 2 favs. - One was definitely 80's , but one who came before, with Real style !

JIMI  HENDRIX !
1942 - 1970
Way before the Eighties.....






Military Style jackets were Big as a Symbol against the Vietnam War.



The late 60's was so much more than tie-dye.
Lot's of Capes and Velvet and short boots.







And Scarves.



And just plain old Creativity !
Not to mention a lot of cool !
Jimi was like the effortless fashionista's , his cool started inside and just bled outwards !



NUMBER TWO :
Boy George
A definite 80's Style Icon !


Hats , Colorful eye make-up and oversized clothes.


Lots of High-waisted Harem-style rolled up pants.


Fearless.
The DIY styles always seemed to create fun Trends.







My next Inspirational post will be the 80's Girls.


I love the Clothes Pins Hair Accessories !

Honorable Mention , of course , Bowie !

Boy George looks so young! Back in the day I knew several "new wave" guys who thought he was gorgeous.
