wish heritage is his sense of style. The 44 year-old musician is constantly reinventing himself. Over the years, Kravitz has played everything from ’60s stoner to denim-clad rock star. Sometimes the fit is relaxed and at other times it’s tailored enough that he turns on the high beams with his twin nipple rings. He has been coiffed with everything from a buzz cut to an Afro — and no one wears a nose ring, or a man-purse, with more masculinity than Lenny.
While other celebrities either follow trends or wind up on the worst dressed list by daring to blaze their own style trail, Lenny has created a look that is truly individual. It has even led to talks of him launching his own clothing line. Who knew anyone could have creative juices left after creating five platinum albums. His designer duds may not have joined the celebrity ranks at Macy’s alongside Martha Stewart’s towels and a table of Donald Trump ties, but Lenny did establish his own interior design firm in 2006. Fortunately, there haven’t been any reports of nipple ring chandeliers a la Lenny, but you can’t deny that the man takes risks and succeeds. It doesn’t matter if he’s sporting a tailored suit and fedora or a cutoff shirt and distressed jeans — he always looks crazy comfortable in everything he wears. That’s why Lenny Kravitz rightfully earns his spot as a style icon.
Dress The Kravitz Way
To really look like Lenny, you could start by being reborn into a multi-racial Adonis with a ripped body and enough piercings to make Dennis Rodman blink. If that doesn’t work out, tryaccessorizing. No matter what version of Lenny you get, he is always wearing a signature piece of jewelry (or two — or twenty). It can become an extreme look that only works for Lenny, but a couple of carefully selected items can round out your look. We’re not talking about a watch you got from your grandparents for graduation or an over-designed necklace from David Yurman. Even when Lenny is wearing expensive designers, as he often does, everything still seems label-less. That’s the best part about incorporating some of Lenny’s style into your every day look. The right bracelet, necklace or ring doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, it probably shouldn’t be because some of the most defining pieces in your wardrobe often end up being the most affordable.
