How to rock an outlandish style
Let’s take a look a the word outlandish for a moment. At it’s root, the word is describing an out lander – a stranger from a different place, with different customs and a foreign dress and demeanor. When it comes to fashion there is a tremendous pressure to conform to societal norms. At the same time though, it’s important to have an individual take on style in order to avoid falling into the cookie cutter dynamic that is the complete anti-thesis to self expression. In this post we’re going to take a look at a pair of power pieces you can use to really stand out from the pack.
The Zip Boots
Mens fashion boots zip - that’s the name of the game with this one. These types of standout fashion boots are the type of piece you might expect to be worn on stage by a rock star. They connote a sort of rebellious air that’s reminiscent of Mel Gibson in Mad Max - images of motorcycles and leather jackets abound. We recommend pairing these up with a pair of boot cut jeans and a mean looking leather jacket. For the James Dean look, you can pair this up with a plain white t-shirt and some aviator sun glasses.
The Leather Blazer
When it comes to power pieces, there are few that stand out like a luxurious leather mens blazer in brown. If you do go with this one, make sure that you match it up with a brown leather belt and brown shoes to avoid unnecessary color clashing. The key to pulling off a power item like this is to understate the rest of your outfit. If every piece is over the top, you’ll just come off tacky. By wearing just one stand out piece, you’ve made a statement without drawing the wrong kind of attention.
