STREET STYLE AFRICA ♣ PULL IT OFF

PHOTOGRAPHED BY ALLEN COLEMAN FOR FRESHWALLSTREET.COM IMG_7753The next time someone tries argue with me on the subject that style cannot be bought I might feel really tempted to whip this photo out . When style is this unique you appreciate it more simply because it feels as though you are witnessing something exclusive to the moment . I love the cut of the pants , I may not have enough Rambo juice in me to pull that off but that’s the beauty of it , he does. PHOTOGRAPHED BY ALLEN COLEMAN FOR FRESHWALLSTREET.COM IMG_7748Thank you for reading , all photos by Allen Coleman for http://www.freshwallstreet.com

STREET STYLE AFRICA ♣ STYLE BENDER

IMG_3683                 ♣ ”Style has always bordered around rules but has never been confined  by it ”  ♣IMG_3693
IMG_3692Isn’t it strange that before the denim shirt craze  it was forbidden to pair denim with denim,  and since most people didn’t want to look like chuck Norris on the cover of American invasion everyone except the dudes from the style bending temple  steered clear ( kindly ignore the style bending reference if you have no idea who avatar ang is ) . Style has always bordered around rules but has  never been confined in it, in actual fact we commend style at its purest when it bends the rules at the right angle.

STREET STYLE AFRICA ♣ I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU PT 2.

IMG_2423  ♣It’s a pleasure running into these two in a time where men who know their way around color have become a dying breed. Knowing color is a journey most men don’t see the need for until they are faced with the task working an impossible tie they got as a gift from the Mrs . When men approach color as they should, it tends to  cast a refreshing appeal on our stiff nature . Fellow photographer Innocent Mukheli is proof that there are still  men out there who know their way around color.

STREET STYLE #GHANA FASHION WEEK ♣ SIMPLE IS STILL GENIUS

Simple isn’t dead. Lately I have been giving the basics in my wardrobe a lot of play for one simple reason, the basics invented the classics. Women think putting something together in a man’s wardrobe is easier compared to theirs, well I agree. Once a man overcomes the obstacle of finding the perfect fit for his clothing even a simple cotton t shirt and right pair of denim does more than the trick. This gentleman rocks the denim on denim with so much ease , and the relaxed fit on the denim couldn’t have been done up better. ♣

STREET STYLE ♣ LETS ALL SAY THE GRACE

Sometimes it’s just  the grace and the elegance , that’s all that matters. The denim biker jacket on that snake print maxi dress is just genius .This how the queen of England would look in her 20’s if she had anything from  ‘’the quadron’’  on her playlist . #peacegods. ♣

STREET STYLE ♣ THE COOL ONES HAVE ALREADY BEEN BORN

The denim jacket is still my favorite item and its basically on the strength of its versatility and cool factor , it’s almost like a biker jacket , it adds an automatic cool to your aura . I am in love with the light wash because most of the time they posses more character but I am glad the dark wash denim jacket is getting some play , its dark properties personally makes it easy to work into both a formal casual attire and strictly casual one . ♣

theCOLE+KID JOURNALS ♣ THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

“The ability to accept change, to embrace it without losing yourself and what you stand for is strength’s I.D card. A couple years ago if you showed me today I would probably shake my head at every scene. I started this blog to show people it was alright to be themselves and be more , little did I know  I was sitting in the boat I was rowing . These past few months have been a blessing in a way that I didn’t see coming , every time I run into a good soul I pick something up and with every inspiration I wake up wanting to be more  of myself . Accepting or learning something doesn’t mean you were nothing without it but simply better now.  Mistakes will be made and mistakes will be corrected, but only the strongest will know that they still have the jewel of not repeating that mistake and the jewel of knowing better. “  _thecole+kid  (excuse the crunch face below , its my new camera shy facial)

STREET STYLE ♣ THE DENIM JACKET

The denim jacket is absolutely my favorite item right now , it knows no limit if you know how to pair it with other items and the amazing part is its season proof , it works in the summer just as well as it does it winter for the layering kings and queens .I  love the denim jacket in almost all washes but the light wash (as pictured above) has an amazing quality of complimenting loud colors and lighting up dark ones ,and with age they tend to build more character than dark washed denim so  it makes it an easy  grab in thrift stores. It’s certainly a wardrobe must have on this side. ♣ MORE
