Inspired by: Greasers

The Outsider's is one of my all time favourite books, and films. It's probably one of the only pieces of work where I don't feel that the film takes away from the book. It stays as true as possible to it. The story opens with our protagonist Ponyboy Curtis saying, “When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home…”. Well, once I'd seen The Outsider's a couple of times, I had only two things on my mind also: The pure beauty of Dallas Winston and writing this post. 

As you can see from the image above; greaser style involved a lot of double denim with the odd plaid shirt and leather jacket thrown in for good measure. Rolled up jeans and t-shirt sleeves have always been a look that I've loved and it just so happens to be a staple trend in true greaser style. 

I love this high-street brand look that I've created with inspiration from my favourite gang: 

Jeans - Jamie at TopShop. Top - Basics at H&M. Jacket - BooHoo. Converse - Schuh. Necklace - ISWAI. Cuff - Mango. 

Now, I realise that you would never have seen Dally or Soda or any of the boys in this film sporting skin tight jeans but these "Inspired By" posts are all about taking an idea from something that you love and turning it in to something that you could actually wear and also, afford. I love this look and it's so simple and comfortable for running around in your everyday life. This would also be a great look for concerts and gigs as it's stylish but easy to jump around in. The beauty of this outfit is that you really don't have to try very hard at all. It's a really simple look - most people will already have some casual pieces like these in their wardrobes so you'll have to spend very little money and it's the type of outfit that will suit most body types as the top portion of the look is loose and comfortable. 

For make-up I would go with a natural but matte finish on the skin, red lips, and a cat-eye liner flick. Any everyday, easy-to-do hairstyle will go with this look. 

How do you guys feel about "The Outsiders"? & who do you want to see one of these posts done about in the future? Let me know in the comments.
