OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #560
By Matt Glazebrook, 26 August 2015
Alex Turner was strolling through LAX airport the other day, bringing strong rockstar vibes.
If the crowd of paparazzi, the model girlfriend towering a good few inches above him and the left turn once he got on the plane didn't make his music royalty status obvious enough, the outfit confirmed it.
A strong black biker jacket adds a layer of timeless cool to any getup – Turner likes his slim, classic and reassuringly expensive-looking. Skinny black jeans are the biker's best friend, while a pair of black Chelsea boots make for a complete set of rocker staples.
The Arctic Monkeys frontman rounded things with a pair of Aviator-style sunglasses, a brown belt (a nice way of subtly breaking up the monochrome palette) and the public return of his trademark quiff. The final style lesson here is the exact number of buttons left undone on his crisp white shirt – one more than office worker when the air-con is broken, one less than lothario on the pull. Perfect.
