George Michael knew his way around a two piece
In the wake of George Michael’s death much has been made of his unquestionable contribution to music and to many charitable causes. However the influence of such a unique icon doesn’t stop there. As the darling of pop music in the 80s and the early 90s George Michael had an undeniable affect on fashion. With these decades being pushed to fashion’s fore again for spring/summer 2017 it’s the perfect time to take a tip from the Father Figure of the double leather combo, the slogan tee and of course tropical print…
Keep The Faith In The ‘Mom’ Jean
Slightly high waisted jeans in a light acid wash were to George what Adidas joggers were to Melanie C. AKA a staple piece of style, that worked just as well on stage as it did for lounging around. To really nail this look recline in a sultry/sexy way with as many shirt buttons undone as possible. So get the manvelage (male cleavage) out, follow George’s mantra, ‘if you have got it flaunt it,’ and pose as if someone is carelessly whispering in your ear. Artfully distressed Levi’s are also a must.
I Want Your Sex(y) Suiting
George knew his way around a good suit, whether he looked chic in coral or aloof in head to toe black. The recipe is simple, take one boxy suit with a power bitch vibe and soften with a tee.
Keep A Well Maintained Fringe
We mean this in BOTH senses of the word. Your hair should be permanently coiffed (almost to Princess Diana levels) and whether your find yourself in the sassiest of suedes or as part of a leather double act, rocking out with your fringed jacket out spells out freedom.
Put The Men Into Statement Earring
Why wear two earrings when you can wear one? Louis Vuitton think they pioneered the trend a couple of seasons ago but think again. Get that lonely earring in get jitterbugging ladies.
Take Yourself To That Place…
… where tropical shirts and barely there swimmers are for everyone. The louder the dressing decibels print wise the better as they are ideal for livening up January. Just don’t make it a mocktail. Keep it muted with an oversized denim jacket.
Choose White Head To Toe
Make it head to toe whilst you are at it. Oh so fresh! Plus some of the moves are great for in da club too. If an Katherine Hamnet oversized tee isn’t your thing you can always tackle the tricky braces and white shirt clothing combo… George even tried this with a completely bare chest on stage. Go on, we dare you.
