How to get the “Mick Jagger” Look

I know I haven’t done any features on menswear a while…

This topic was beyond perfect return for the 

Dapper Gentlemen!

Unless you’ve hibernating this winter, you’ve heard Ke$ha’s break out single “Tik Tok”. Just like most of these bubbly pop/dance songs great to dance too, listen too while in the car… But as for a meaningful life message, they are lacking…

But there was one line that stuck with me

“We kick them to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger!”

At first I was like ewww… But when I gave it more thought… Mick’s style, presence and swagger (if we must) is iconic and could be hot if properly replicated…

So boys take notes…

Mick is well known for his British-Rocker-Chic look:

  • Skinny jeans, skinny leather pants and skinny trousers.
  • Perfectly loose fitting rocker tees in solids (black, white, navy and burgundy).
  • Leather jackets, velvet smoking jackets, bright show stopping blazers.

Below I have put together some basic pieces to begin your Mick Jagger look…

Inside Divine Design

Divine Design is a huge charity shopping event held annually in LA. Put on by Project Angel Food which delivers free meals to people with HIV/AIDs and other life threatening illnesses, 100% of all the proceeds go to the charity, or in other words, every $5.00 spent provides 1 meal.

Divine Design Tickets!

Divine Design Tickets!

The charity spends almost the entire year working with designers and fashion brands to gain donations to fill the store. This year the event was held on the first floor of the old Robinson’s May in Beverly Hills. The store is packed with merchandise from Marc by Marc Jacobs, 7 for all Mankind, Trina Turk, BCBG, Hanky Panky and Rock & Republic. There were plenty of random one-off jewels including pieces by Oscar De La Renta, Tracey Reese, Geren Ford and even fur coats! Plus many more clothing brands and there was also plenty of swim, cosmetics and home furnishings.

The event sells tickets for $100 for the first night and $25 for the following 4 days. The first day everything is 50% off retail, then 60% the following day, then 70%, then 80% and finally 90% off retail the final day! I went on the 80% off day (my pics are kind of scary so I borrowed some from Racked LA taken on the 2nd day) and I still found the racks to be relatively still full. Tons of denim, swim, Hank Panky and Marc by Marc Jacobs!

Tracey Reese!!

Tracey Reese!!

I only picked up 2 pieces – trying to be good. It’s harder to shop for yourself during the holidays… I wish they would host the event twice a year… Because I could do some real damage in June!! I love my Tracey Reese beaded tunic retail price $395, Divine Design price $79! My 7for all Mankind grey wool blazer is a great basic piece to add to my wardrobe, retail price $275, Divine Design price $54.

I am considering going back for the last day, but I was warned that everything is scooped up early in the morning by resellers…

It may still be worth a peek!
