Videos That Inspire.

Once again we have a chick that has inspired many a trend. In 2006, Kelis Rogers-Jones let it be known that it’s okay to not always rock long, pretty hair, just as long as you do it right. Long before Rihanna came along, she had just about every female that considered themselves fashionable getting an A-symetrical bob, while some even took it as far as to get designs cut into their head like the risque’ songstress.

But it wasn’t just her haircut that caught our eye. Kelis’s swag was on 1000 before we had ever heard the phrase. From walking with a green dog to reciting lyrics as thourough as, “I’m bossy, I’m the FIRST girl to scream on the track, I switched up the beat of the drum, That’s right, I brought all the boys to the yard, and that’s right I’m the one that’s tattooed on his arm,” we had to give old girl her props. She has obviously influenced the Rihanna’s, Amber Rose’s and Solange’s, and I hope to see her help our girls into the next fashion wave.

To get the Kelis look, go to one of your local hair stylist famous for a good cut and then hit up bebe for a couple of garments to get ya Kelis on. Don’t be afraid of ruffles, huge bows, intricate detailing and short shorts. Here are a few things that could help you achieve the look.

Does Music Influence Style??

As a generation fully indulged in pop culture and the music era, the question arises, “Does music influence style?” If you’re an avid listener to hip-hop does that mean you wear baggy jeans and graphic tees with high-top Jordans, or if you listen to alternative rock that you wear skinny jeans and military jackets with a five year old pair of Chuck Taylors?? We all know that the artists of the said music genres follow these stereotypes for the most part but do we as a people?? I personally believe that we do.

From day to day I see a number of college students walking around with iPods and other mp3 players singing along to songs of their choice. Guys with “baggier” pants and Polo shirts are usually listening to the Kanye’s, Weezy’s and maybe even the Common’s, while girls with tight jeans, name brands such as Baby Phat, Dereon and Apple Bottom with thick weaves bump their Keyshia Cole’s, Beyonce’s and Trey Songz. Then you have guys like me that wear fitting to slightly tighter jeans, button downs and sweaters, funky jackets and hoodies, designer accessories, sneakers or sometimes dress shoes, that listen to a variety of artists from Ryan Leslie to Feist, Gucci Mane to Adele and Keri Hilson to Elbow (Great Indie Group). There are even the chicks that wear five inch heels, designer jeans, designer bags, bohemian blouses with natural hairstyles, listening to the Lauryn Hill’s, Jill Scott’s and Raphael Saadiq’s. If you don’t believe me go check for yourself!!! Better yet, let me know how you feel. Drop a comment with your opinion.
