RLGT Style: Musical Cheers
(Above: The exact musical representation of my fashion preferences)
Welcome homies and homettes (word to Chris “Beastmode” Jones), to another edition of RLGT Style. The topic of today’s chat, will together everything that this website represents; today we will be talking about what YOUR taste in music, says about your taste in clothing.
I recently came up with this super random theory while having a conversation with one of my good friends, when asked how I come across new music. My answer was this:
I put on my Soundcloud. I click play on the very first track, and let my feed play through while I write, or do homework, or whatever. I rate a song by 1 of 3 things: An alright/good song is one that I can listen to without notice that it’s even playing in the background, its not amazing but its not terrible and it usually pretty standard. A great song is one that causes me to stop what I’m doing, head back to my Soundcloud and see what the song is, write it down, and click like so I can hear it again later. These songs are the ones that have something, even just he littlest thing, that is special about them. Lastly, a terrible song, is one that similarly causes me to stop what I’m doing, but in turn skip past the track, and make a mental note to boycott the artist.
Simple right? Well this is how I would describe my own personal style preferences as well, although some people may have a different idea of what they like. Some people actually prefer music that simply makes good background noise, while I feel like there are also some people just straight up like terrible music…
But what does your favourite genre/artist say about your fashion choices?
Music that stands out:
Favourite genres include most Electronic, and some hip-hop. Frequently listened to artists may include the likes of RL Grime, Chance the Rapper, Dotcom, Kid Cudi, ETC.
Fashion preferences: Unique items, outfits centered around 1 key piece, hip-hop influenced items.
Music that sounds good, but come across subtly:
Favourite genres include hip-hop, indie, future-electronic. Frequent artists may include Drake, Lana Del Ray, Weeknd, any Soulection artist, frat rap, ETC.
Fashion preferences: Clean and casual, nothing too flashy, consider themselves well dressed, lots of neutral tones.
Music that sucks, and makes you want to switch it (jokes):
Favourite genres may include country, and radio music. Frequent artists include anything that they play at Ranchmans, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Jack U, Macklemore, ETC. (I repeat, “jokes”…. kind of)
Fashion preferences: Very basic clothing, not overly “trendy”, little to no risks, ponchos, toques with animal faces, arms, and/or tails attached to them.
Although this is a very loose assumption, and most people are guilty of liking a little bit of each category, for the most part, I believe this remains true.
As stated earlier, I am the type of person who loves music that isn’t quite like anything else. Each artist I listen to must have their own unique quality. When it comes to my fashion choices, I am quite similar. I don’t like to mesh in with the walls. I do wear a lot of blacks, but I like to always have something colorful to contrast. Hip-hop is also a clear influence on my style, with things like Polo caps, Timbs, and oversized graphic tee’s playing a constant role. Below are some of my recent selections.
Like everything though, this concept must be taken with a grain of salt. This may not be completely true for everyone, but for me I can definitely say this is something I’ve noticed. I would even go as far as saying that the days that I’m feeling some-typa-way, and am more into listening to some softer sounds (AKA crying yourself to sleep to some Drizzy after getting curved), it is definitely reflected in the way I dress. These are the days you’ll see the most neutral colors throughout.
In a weird change of events, I want to conclude this weeks fashion post, with a musical sentiment; “LISTEN TO WHAT YOU LIKE”. As much as my shitty opinion means to our 4 or 5 daily readers, at the end of the day you should always make an attmept to find what works for you, fashion-wise, music-wise, or whatever it may be.
Be a taste-maker, not a taste-tester.
