Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Music Influencing Style

Music Influencing Style

9:04 PM

How does music influence style?  Hm, well let’s just look at the obvious ones.  When you think of punk rock what do you see?  Studs, spikes, black, boots, etc.  What about country?  Cowboy/girl hats, boots, shorts, denim, flannel, plaid, etc.  What do you think of when you hear indie?  A very bohemian feel and relaxed.  

Music influences style whether we notice it or not.  Look at today’s fashion.  All of the studded shoes and even small accents of studs/spikes on blouses.  Or even look at ballet flats and buns, where do you think those originated from?  Granted ballet is not a music genre it is a form of dance, but think of the music that goes along with ballet, very sophisticated and classy.  How about all of the different styles of cowgirl boots? Trends have to start somewhere and sometimes looking at music which is a big influence on a lot of people is a great way to get ideas.  You can take a studded belt for example and somehow take that and make it into something girly, even with the studs.  

I know that when I get dressed sometimes whatever I’m listening to at the moment may influence it.  If I’m listening to country I’ll put on my cowgirl/cow roper boots.  Or if I listen to my hardcore metal music I might put on my studded purple snakeskin heels.  Since I’m obsessed with sock buns that’s when I feel classy and sophisticated.  When I wear my hair in braids or lose I feel relaxed and might wear a long maxi dress or skirt.  Everything in life can influence fashion.  Even books or poems.  There might be a certain feeling someone gets from something and that alters their mood/style for the day.
 I love that fashion is so versatile.  Nowadays it’s even more fun because it’s trendy to mix and match certain styles.  I can wear very nice dress pants and accent it with some metal accessories and it’s already a different style.  Or how about take a flannel with nice pants and belt it, that’s a completely different look as well.

Oh and last but not least, let's not forget to thank our good friend MC Hammer for his parachute pants!
