One of the things I absolutely *LOVE* to do here at Be Stylish is to take a complete outfit, reverse-engineer it, then tell you how to put it back together for yourself.
But classy suits and silk slim ties is not the only thing that’s stylish. A biker look can show just as much style as the most expensive suit IF you wear it in the right circumstances. Plus, you need to BE the kind of guy who would wear something like this.
Today I want to present to you a classic biker look. Dustin from www.shiggersonstreet.com was kind enough to let me comment on one of his outfits. Hopefully it will give you the inspiration you need to put together this outstanding look.
Here’s what you need:
– a classic leather jacket
– a black t-shirt
– a pair of slim-fit grey jeans
– a pair of black boots
– a black leather belt
– a cool haircut
Yep, it’s all about leather in this outfit. Not leather imitation, real, quality, leather. That’s the only kind you want.
Recently I could have purchased a leather imitation jacket for myself for pennies… but I chose real leather instead. It looks way better, it feels way better and it will look great for years.
One thing that I looked at when I got my leather jacket was the pockets. I don’t really go for jackets that have a lot of zippers. the fewer the better. Call it a matter of personal preference but I’d rather “load” my outfit with some separate accessories than with some annoying zippers.
What’s next? Ah, the black t-shirt and grey jeans. You don’t need much help here, just go for some simple denim… and stay away from skinny jeans.
Skinny jeans don’t look good on a man so go for slim-fit instead.
Boots! if you’re really going for that biker look, the books will make the whole difference. Just imagine Dustin in wearing black leather shoes instead. he wouldn’t make that much of a fashion statement in that case.
Add to the boots a leather belt, a cool haircut and we’re done… or are we?
There’s one detail in Dustin’s outfit that I missed intentionally. Did you spot it?
It’s the rolled up jeans.
Wear the jeans over the boots and you’re a generic guy trying to be cool. Wear them rolled up (which shoes more of the boot too) and you’ve put together a real biker look.
Remember: it’s all in the details.
