No group on planet Earth, past or present is/was more swaged out than the Isley Brothers. PERIOD. The furs, crotched blouses, sans shirts, layered necklaces, hats, gold lamé suits, suits in general, fringe, bold colors, rings… an amalgamation of textiles and fabrics unrestrained by gender norms. Ron Isley is still swaged out to this day. I kiss the ring. A great group Halloween costume (think I’ll be starting this segment early this year, love October, don’t all witches?).

Honestly, with all the drama I haven’t been able to do my staple pieces, like Style With, but I will. Bretman Rock is definitely joining the ranks. He’s so glam rock. Urgh obsessedddd with his entire aesthetic. He’s killing you hoes everyday, bes’ believe. Let me save it for his curation. Do you dig it? Via: Bretman Rock Insta
Captured December 2019 before all pandemic hell broke loose. Photographer Luo Yang captures her home, China, in modern day. “When I look at my subjects, I see pioneers: people who are independent, free and brave enough to not just see the changes happening, but embody it themselves. Freedom and the desire for self expression are a universal language.” These pictures showcase both themes, incorporating the fluidity of subjects born in the 1990’s or 2000’s. How important is the freedom of individualism and expression to you? Do you hold back for social conformity? Why?
ASAP Rocky might be the male version of Rihanna, it’s ugly until he wears it. Point and case outfit number 2, nothing tailored, mixed patterns and seemingly garish animal patches (the stuff of acid trips) on his jeans. Yet it comes off as this fused mixture of effortless cool, gender fluid, hobo chic. The fluid nature of his style with the feminine prints, blouses and pearl accessories is subtle and exquisite. He also rocks fabrics you wouldn’t normally put together (silk orange chemise with a cargo pant), the epitome of style. Super versatile. Which style is your favorite?

Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
Because it’s okay to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
Cause you think that being a girl is degrading.
