Okay. I felt nerdy when i wore this look. Somehow whats missing is the book which I'm suppose to be reading but alas the glasses and the clothes will suffice. I was paying attention to the beatnik style of dressing done by a subculture in the 1950s. Black turtleneck..check. intellectual glasses... check. black beret...check. But of course I never put anything on too literally. Its too cliche. So I like to put my spin on it. Instead of basic tailored trousers why not wear slim drop crotch cords but are actually japanese undergarment wrap ups which if unfastened will fall off like a robe? Hows that for beatniks living on the edge? Its like an Instant reveal when necessary:) Or instead of popular 50s ankle length pointed leather boots worn by the beatniks why not wear ankle length wedge boots with skull and snake prints for that instant graphic feel? Well all that subplots in my look is totally beatnik. All I need now is a cafe to lounge and read my poetry en masse.
