The Overlooked Style Icon

MickJaggerPA140211

What I am about to explain to you needs no justification in my mind. I still feel the need to elaborate so that you might understand where I am coming from when I say what I am about to. I grew up on rock n’ roll. Although my family was more of the Jimmy Buffet and Randy Newman type, I hung around kids that were watching Pink Floyd’s The Wall and The Rolling Stones’ Rock n’ Roll circus. Although I never outwardly dressed like my friends, in their tattered band shirts, ripped jeans, and scuffed shoes, I aesthetically enjoyed the style of all of my Joey Ramone doppelganger friends.

Flash forward several years and here I am. Still listening to much of the same music and knowing the words to every song because I’ve listened to them so many times and it never got old. The only main difference now is that I know more-so who I am. I’m not gritty or rough on the inside; I’m simply a feminine girl who happens to like all things gritty and rough looking. Some of the glamorized aspects of rock n’ roll are a little too much. The debauchery involved in the lifestyle is too much for me to appreciate, or even handle. I choose to admire from afar.

So what is all of this about? This is all about finding inspiration in the places where you would often overlook it. And by overlook, I mean Mick Jagger. When you mention the name, many millennials would simply respond with “who?”, everyone else is too busy either mocking his age or looking at what he is physically doing, not what he’s wearing.

Jagger’s style over the years has remained admirable. He’s been consistently consistent with what he wears, tight black jeans, a button up shirt, and the most important element of any one of his outfits, a killer blazer. Below, as on ode to none other than Mr. Jagger, I’ve compiled exactly what I would wear if I happened to be him.
