Borrowed From The Boys: Tinie Tempah

Borrowed From The Boys- Tinie Tempah

British rapper Tinie Tempah (and Prince William fave!) is known widely for his sick beats, but I’m swooning over his seriously slick style.

How about this look for the first week of September? I love his dapper duds.

Borrowed From The Boys: Milan Vukmirovic

Borrowed From The Boys- Milan Vukmirovic

Photographer and creative influencer Milan Vukmirovic has earned his fashion stripes. The Frenchman seamlessly jumps from one endeavour to another (Fashion Photographer, Creative Director- Jil Sander, Co-Founder- Colette, EIC-L’Officiel Hommes, EIC- Fashion For Men) with his elevated-casual style influencing each project through osmosis.

 Are you a fan of Milan’s elevated-casual style?

Borrowed From The Boys: David Gandy

Borrowed From The Boys- David Gandy

 

Isn’t he lovely? Isn’t he beautiful? David Gandy is as sweet as candy, and his style ain’t too shabby either! Here he is strutting in leather and cotton.

Not too many men could pull this off, but I like this look.

Would you adapt this for your own style?

Borrowed From The Boys: Nick Wooster

Borrowed From The Boys-Nick Wooster

 

Devoting an entire Men’s Style series to Nick Wooster is probably the best approach, but let’s start with a smart-casual look from him. Wooster has the ability to make even the fussiest menswear look completely modern and effortless- from prints, vests, dhotis and the-proceed-with-extreme caution short suit- there is no piece that eludes Wooster’s styling expertise.

Kayne, take note.

Do you kneel at the altar of Nick Wooster’s style shrine?

Borrowed From The Boys: Haider Ackerman

Borrowed From The Boys- Haider Ackermann

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that there’s no style statement I love more than a great pant: printed, cuffed, high-waisted, cropped, drop-crotch, cigarette, peg-leg- there’s not too many styles I don’t appreciate, or wear on the regular. Menswear in general is a source of great inspiration to me, which is why I thought it would be fun to start a brand-new style series on FatFreeFashion: Borrowed From The Boys.

I often find myself on the Men’s side of Zara, H&M and Forever 21 simply because the slightly oversized cut, muted colours, clean prints and subtle textures really appeal to my practical sensibilities- labels be damned!

Borrowed From The Boys Menswear Muse #1? The always artfully deconstructed designer, Haider Ackermann. How cool is his look? Officially inspired.
