Celebrity Fashion – Dressing Like Jack White
The White Stripes may no longer be around, but this is not to say that Jack White isn’t still extremely active in the music industry. Indeed, White is one of the most prolific musicians in the scene today, and continues to release ground-breaking music that has changed the face of modern rock. In addition to being a phenomenal guitar player, Jack White is also one of the most recognizable faces in rock today, much due to the way he dresses. White’s style is difficult to classify, but is ideal for anyone who is looking to make it big in the music industry. The following are just a few tips for dressing like Jack White, which is actually a lot easier than most people think.
If there’s anything about Jack White’s style that’s important to know right off the bat, it’s that the man loves dressing in red. White’s signature outfit when he played with the White Stripes was bright red pants and an even brighter red shirt, which matched perfectly with his cherry red guitar. Most people would expect this look to clash almost 100% of the time, although White always made it work for him to great effect. While you might not want to rock this look while walking down the street, it’s ideal for anyone who gets on stage to play music regularly, and can be thrown together rather inexpensively. Tie the ensemble together with a gold-buckled black belt and a subtle pair of black sneakers for best effect. Not convinced you can pull off red jeans and shirt?

Get the Hat
These days, Jack White is all about throwing on the perfect hat for the occasion. White has been seen wearing a great deal of different types of hats over the years, but seems to prefer the fedora and porkpie hat above all else, almost always opting for black rather than brown. When wearing a hat of this style, you’ll want to ensure that the rest of your outfit supports the look you’re going for. For example, consider throwing on a black leather jacket to pair with your black fedora, as the results can be very eye-catching. Avoid mismatching colors (ie: don’t wear brown clothes with a black hat), which very easily result in an outfit that clashes.
Consider Western Shirts
While Western-style shirts may have seen the peak of their popularity in the 60s/70s, they have risen in popularity to a dramatic extent over the course of just the past few years; especially amongst younger men. Jack White has been known to embrace the Western-style shirt on plenty of occasions, proving that this style still matters in the world of rock and roll. Choose Western shirts that feature a lot of contrast; a white shirt with red patterns and highlights will cause just about anyone to stand out in a crowd. This type of shirt works best when paired with dark-washed denim jeans and dress boots, although this isn’t to say that you should experiment with different types of ensembles to see what works best for you.
The White Belt
Chances are good that Mr White’s wardrobe is only filled with clothes in one of these three colors: Black, red, and white. While Mr White typically avoids wearing patterns, he likes to accessorize with a white studded belt. While the white belt might not suit every occasion, it is a perfect accessory for those looking to add some uniqueness to their look. Our tip: Pair the white leather belt with slim fit black jeans, a gray V-neck T-shirt, and a black sports coat.
