Happy October!!! This fall, I’m interested in color combinations that break the mold, and this outfit has a kind of funny source of inspiration…I may not admire all of Justin Bieber’s actions, but I have chaperoned my little cousin to two of his concerts (by which I mean I eagerly tagged along), and I honestly love his style. I’m into the way he wears tees that hang a little longer than a standard jacket. He also probably owns one of the most impressive denim collections in human history. Does Justin dress himself? Who’s to say? I for sure don’t care, and Bieber is not the first male, teenage heart throb whose street style seriously inspired my look (read: Robert Pattinson in my senior year of high school). This getup is a personal homage to the fashion icon that is the Biebs, right down to #MyCalvins. These limited edition Calvin Klein jeans have quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my entire wardrobe. I especially like using them as a canvas for more androgynous outfits. I ordered this inexplicably cool graphic tee from Dolls Kill in a size larger than usual to achieve my desired layering effect, and it lined up just right with my beloved reworked vintage Levi’s jacket by Ragged Priest. My favorite boots (many people have mistaken them for Prada) keep the look masculine, and make the outfit a little more upscale. My new Alexander Wang ‘Rockie’ bag (which comes with a cross body strap) also elevates this urban ensemble. I’m obsessed with the deep shade of burgundy-wine, and I’ve been having a lot of fun pairing it with unexpected colors. Something about the way the bag clashes with my tee is just delicious to me, and the burgundy definitely brings strong fall vibes.
