Kanye West wore a skirt, would you?
When it comes to fashion, most guys look to celebrities like Jay-Z, LeBron James and Denzel Washington for advice, depending on their individual style. However, one entertainer who has outwardly voiced his dislikes of certain trends despite failing to launch himself in the fashion industry recently went where most men have never gone before.
MTV News reports the one-of-a-kind Kanye West did not disappoint in terms of his eccentric look while performing during "12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief." West turned heads, not for his sound, but instead for his unique leather pants, skirt and hoodie combination.
West rocked the (fashion-forward?) look with pride, other than the sweat dripping down his face from the leather-sweatshirt combo. Fans may be wondering what made the rapper decide to wear a skirt, and secondly why he chose to wear it along with pants.
Remember, this is the same man who openly bashed sweatshirts and other normal menswear on his Twitter page. In May of this year, West discussed the clothing pieces he despises that New Yorkers tend to wear.
"Just driving through the city and I see a few things I hate. I hate button up shirts with hoodies. I hate hoodies with sport coats. I hate sport coats with button up shirts, jeans and dress shoes," West wrote on his Twitter page. "I hate khaki trench coats with jeans and off brand work out sneakers. I hate khaki cargo shorts. I Hate big ass striped scarves. I hate long [expletive] sideburns with the line up RnB [sic] beard."
Given his recent fashion choices, would you take advice from West? Do you think he wears skirts and other unique outfits simply to get attention? Would you ever wear a skirt?
