Name: Marc Lyle.
Spotted at: 11th Avenue and Lincoln Street during the Westword Music Showcase.
Favorite film: Fight Club.
2013 jam: "We Missed the Boat," by Modest Mouse.
Style inspirations/icons: Sean Connery and I recently studied abroad, so Spain, as well.
Favorite color: Red. Black and blue, as well.
Favorite accessory: I don't wear accessories, usually.
Style mantra: Weekdays I am up at 6 a.m. I just get up and don't really tell myself anything.
Shops at: I bought the shorts at H&M and the tank from American Apparel.
"A fantasy for Dada" is how Lyle describes his Showcase outfit, which was inspired by Dada Life's ridiculous music. His pink wristband even matches his pink shorts.
"I just like to hang out and have fun," says Lyle of his personal style. Here he wears neon pink-and-yellow detailed Quicksilver slip-on shoes.
Style analysis: Lyle demonstrates how his easygoing summer style could be amplified for the Westword Music Showcase. While many others were dressed in standard shorts and bro tanks, Lyle added an EDM twist to his ensemble with neon colors. The bright pink and yellow may not be how he dresses Monday through Friday, but the vibrant colors expressed his fun-loving personality on Saturday -- and showed how men can pull off pink properly.
Always dress according to your musical fantasy, Denver.
