  • Fashion Inspiration For The Last 5 Seconds of Summer!

    Posted on 08/04/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Don't let those premature "Back To School" commercials get you down, there's still plenty of summer left! And no one knows this better than the poster boys of summer themselves, Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton of 5 Seconds of Summer!

    The TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artists have taken this season by storm with their music, and we've all fallen in love with them about as much as the warm-weather vacation itself. But did you know that these boys are style taste-makers, too? Sure, they might be better known for their cute faces than their fashion, but we're sensing some serious sartorial (SAT word!) patterns. Before the days get too short, check out a few of the trends the boys have been rocking and make the best out of your last 5 Seconds of Summer!

    NOTHIN' BUT A HAIR FLIP-FLOP

    Bassist Michael Clifford is known for his chameleonic hair changes. From blonde to brown to bright green, there's no color he can't rock. So who's to say a little tonsorial switch-up isn't in your future? If it's just a little temporary neon streak, go bold with some unexpected colors.

    I'M WITH THE BAND

    The 5SOS boys are all about paying homage to the legendary bands that have influenced them, and these days you don't even have to go to a concert to nab a band tee. Head over to your local vintage shop (or your parents' closet!) and pop on a T-shirt to celebrate your favorite rockers! Extra points for 5SOS T-shirts, of course.

    HATS OFF TO YOU

    Hats might seem like a pretty obvious summer staple, but there are always new and fresh ways to shield the summer rays. Take it from Ashton and Calum! Pork pie hats or snap backs, a topper is a great way to upgrade your ensemble. But the question remains... Are you brave enough to rock a beanie in August?

    DON'T MEAN TO CUT YOU OFF...

    Late-summer temperatures can be brutal, so minimizing the amount of material you throw on your back seems like a logical solution to the oppressive heat, right? Right. Well, if you haven't already noticed, the boys of 5SOS really, realllly love their cutoff tees. Ahhh, let the air flow in, boys...

    HOLE-Y MOLY!

    Speaking of extra ventilation, the worn-in, distressed look (as seen here by Calum and Ashton) actually has very practical applications. We're not totally sure how those holes got there (did they pay extra for them? Do they need to switch their laundry detergent? Was a tiger or other ferocious wild animal somehow involved?), but it's a ~lewk~ nonetheless. And we ~lurve~ it.

    What's your favorite 5SOS style? Which one would you adapt to make your own? Let us know in the comments!
