Micheal Jackson; King of pop and fashion Icon to boot


Today the king of pop would have been a year older, but that’s not news as every form of media today, has been abuzz with tributes to this Icon who made us fall in love time and time again with the beautiful magic that was the music he created.

In his very short 50 years he became a guiding light for aspiring musicians everywhere and a soothing balm for souls, though he is dead he lives on his music and his style.

The king of pop wasn’t just wonderful with his incredible ability to move like that was his life’s purpose or his even more incredible voice, but was additionally so with his style.

Today we see many trends like his love for Military style jackets, bling, fedoras, white and black combo amongst others. Many artists like Beyonce for example, who are strong performers, sorta invoke his own sterling performance history to motivate them by adapting his style for their own performances. Plus his style has greatly influenced designers like Balmain and Charles Castelbajac in their collections.

Here are a few trends MJ influenced:

His signature aviator glasses which became the go to look for cool and un-bothered.

This flying shirt pose which I’m sure came so easy to him has definitely been reproduced a number of times.

His adorable fro which isn’t necessarily or completely out of style even though it isn’t the 70s anymore, Alton Mason and our very own Korede Bello are proof of this.

During the era of Bad, Beat it and Thriller this leather jacket on dress pants look was a staple and one of my favorite stylish go to’s when confused.

Well, he been doing white on white way before 2014

And his ripped denim

His fedoras

Black and white stripped  pants

This trophy jacket trend

Androgyny, yhup! His style was so exuberant that he sometimes wore female clothing like this jacket and shirt from Riccardo Tisci’s collection for Givenchy.

Micheal Jackson would always have a place in fashion, music and our hearts as well.
