Friday Fashion Feature: Trend Alert – A Touch Of Ska

As featured in this month’s issue of Complex magazine, ska style is making its way back this season and we want to show you how to get the look!



A tad edgier than the skater look and more relaxed than your typical punk rocker, the ska trend stems from a music genre that falls between rocksteady and reggae, with roots from Jamaica.

The beauty is that it infuses so many different styles together – rock, hip hop, goth, skate and more!



Think back to when No Doubt first came out with that fun laid back west coast style.

Lil Wayne has been spotted rocking this trend, as you can see in the top image where he’s rocking KR3W pants with a silver chain wallet and classic Converse All Stars.



You can wear this look playfully like him, using bold colors like red and yellow with cargo pants, cool button downs and graphic tees:




Spunkir Stripe and Check S/S Shirt by Diesel



Dreddy Rock Tee by Riddim Driven



Beast Cargo Pant by Akademiks



Nizza Hi by Adidas



Or dress it up a bit more “mod” twist, using accessories like skinny ties, fedora hats, etc.:



Kane Overdyed Woven by KR3W, Ricky Straight Leg Jean by True Religion, Ponti Premium by Creative Recreation



Are you feeling the ska style this fall?
