jesus christ, so, evidently, i’ve gotten a bit lazy with my little style icon thursday kick! oopsies…i totally meant to post this yesterday. but! as an added friday bonus, you get the very first male extravaganza. today’s hot meat treat is jamie hince of the kills. grab a towel for your seat.
i have never seen jamie or a photograph of jamie where he doesn’t look completely pulled-together in a rumpled–but good–way. and this is easy to achieve, you guys! the rock-chic, still-wasted-from-last-night, my-clothes-are-dirty-but-my-belt-costs more-than-your-car look. get it right! you can do it! you can look like jamie! even if you’re fat or think you’re fat! all you need are some super-skinny jeans, black boots, a couple of good scarves, a nice tee, maybe a fitted pea coat or leather jacket. a vest would be a good move too. some nice sunglasses–not cheap ones. take up smoking. and the best accessory that goes with practically everything: kate moss.
see?! i fucking told you to get a handbag!
okay, well, maybe he was using that as an overnight bag, but it still looks good. and look at jamie here; see how he’s fumbling with all that stuff in his hands? notice him struggling? i bet he wishes he would have brought his big, red hermes with him to corral his shit:
note the classic pea coat a la ian curtis:
again with the scarves!
i know it’s summer, but hang onto them for couple of months. or, do what i do: disregard the weather all together & wear whatever the fuck you want…even if you’re sweating in a black cardigan & tights. fashion over function! when you’re dead, do you want anyone to say, gee, he was so…so…functional! utilitarian even! no. you want people to say, that fucker knew how to dress! so snappy! fashion forward, but effortless at the same time! incredible style. always looked dressed to a tea, that one.
you can do it, you guys. straight boys can be stylish, too! don’t let all the pretty gays steal your thunder! jamie is a perfect living example of how easy it is to be hot without having to put forth heaping scoops of effort. how do you think he got kate moss for christ’s sake!
