Fall is here, and weather-beating black boots have hit the streets. But while that footgear may be a staple, Jerome Maestas makes his look unique with a sensational take on accessories, including turning a necklace into a shoulder embellishment. Keep reading to learn his style mantra, which singer designed his bag and, of course, what's inside the bag.
Name: Jerome Maestas.
Spotted at: Sixth and Lincoln Street.
Profession: Hairstylist/ entertainer.
Favorite film: I really love the Scream trilogy.
Autumn anthem: Christina Aguilera's new song, "My Body."
Style inspirations/icons: Alexander McQueen is really edgy and funky, a little dark, and makes good party clothes. I really like Adam Levine's casual yet chic appearance as well.
Favorite color: Purple.
Favorite accessory: Earrings are my favorite. I have about thirty pairs. I have a set of studs in, plus another pair.
Style mantra: When you're looking good, you're feeling good.
Shops at: A consignment store in Aspen, Las Vegas and California. If something catches my eye, I'll take it, no matter where I'm at.
Check out what's in Jerome Maestas's bag on page 2! Singer Gwen Stefani designs a collection called L.A.M.B. This black-and-white mini-duffle bag is from that line. The gothic-style text it's covered in reads: "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." Let's go in for a closer inspection... We have an olive green, Paul Frank iPhone case with the symbolic Julius, the monkey. We also have a Drag Nation ticket, as well as Maestas's business cards. See him at Chopz if you need a cut! And a fake mustache! "There are always some random things in my bag," says Maestas.
Style analysis: Maestas proves that sticking to the black-and-white basics never goes out of style -- especially if you give those basics a twist, as Maestas does with his shoulder detail, houndstooth hat and smoke-colored jeans.
When in doubt, Denver, stick to black and white.
