Stylish Men: Fashion Inspired By Mick Jagger


Mick Jagger

Here at CF, we love to draw inspiration from unlikely sources. From Nintendo games to artwork to Disney films, we have fun configuring wearable outfits inspired by just about everything.

For this next series, I’m going to combine my two all-time favorite subjects…fashion and hunky men! That’s right, we’re taking inspiration from stylish men throughout history.

Kicking off this series is the man of the hour (thanks in part to Maroon 5’s latest single), Mick Jagger. The poster boy for sex, drugs, and rock and roll, Mick Jagger’s band The Rolling Stones hit the scene in the ’60s and have been inexorably linked to rock music ever since. In addition to a diverse music catalogue, numerous number one hits, dozens of best selling records, and a bevy of beautiful lovers, Mick Jagger is also known for his incredible personal style.

Ready to steal a little rockstar style? Read on!

Fashionable man: Mick Jagger of Rolling Stones fame

Gimme Shelter

Major elements of Mick Jagger’s style include tight pants, velvet, jackets, studs, ruffled shirts, and funky belts. Over the years, Jagger has combined them all for a unique look that is androgynous, flashy, and a little bit boho. Look for structured jackets in unusual fabrics, printed pants, and flowy blouses to channel some of Mick’s iconic style.

Here are a few outfits to help get you started:

Wild Horses

Pants, Jacket, Blouse, Shoes, Cuff

Black skinny motorcycle pants and a fancy blouse make a great base for this first outfit. Add a touch of Mick’s flair by pairing it with a velvet smoking jacket and leopard print booties. Finish with a cool metal cuff for a Britain-meets-badass look.

Confessin’ The Blues

Pants, Jacket, Tunic, Shoes, Earrings

Start off this feisty look with some subtle python-print pants and allude to the British Invasion by rocking a Union Jack flag sweater. Finish the look by adding a motorcycle jacket, cute shoes, and feather earrings.

Sympathy For The Devil

Pants, Blouse, Vest, Shoes, Turban

Colored velvet was one of Mick Jagger’s trademarks in the ’60s and ’70s, so play homage to him by rocking some wine-colored skinny velvet pants. Add another one of his signatures, a ruffled blouse, and top it off with a funky vest. Finish the outfit with some tough boots and a leopard print turban.

    I was Mick Jagger for Halloween and used pieces from my closet to make my entire costume!

    P.S. One of these outfits needs to have some colorful Keds. Mick loves his Keds.

    I love the velvet tuxedo jacket in the first look. It’s totally unexpected and adds a edgy vibe to an otherwise classic look. I love finding inspiration in the most unexpected icons.

    I love Mick Jagger, but I have to admit that I was hoping for a British flag minidress here! It just seems so cute and 60s (and therefore, Mick Jagger like!)

    Love it! This is how I dress pretty much everyday, sixties inspired rock n roll with a hint androgyny. Huge Stones fan too. Do David Bowie, Lou Reed, or John Lennon next!
