Sometimes it’s the simplest styling choices that jump out at you without warning. They clutch you like a phantom hand, beckon you to follow. It could be one simple thing – an accessory, a colour, a new way to tie a tie – but more often it’s a combination of things that come together to create a mood.
It would be easy to pass 2012’s hairstyle take on the side part off as neutral or of incapable of being a main contributor to one of those grabbing looks. But one glance at Marloes Horst will inform you that’s not the case. The matted, dangerous side fringe with its hint of wet look gel and it’s predisposition to attitude makes it an essential ingredient in the looks styled here. Part 50s rockabilly part 80s punk, both parts equally steeped in rebellion, it takes little to create this mood – and that little is wholly worth it.
Bomber jackets, bobby socks, and roll-neck sweaters layered under shirts are all part of the act in the Patrik Sehlstedt photographed shoot. Don’t forget the nonchalant cluster of badges on any jacket breast or lapel.
