Say yes to the dress, Jaden! Never one to mark his style as conventional, Jaden Smith has started incorporating dresses into his wardrobe — and he’s totally rocking them.
The fashion-forward son of Will Smith, 46, and Jada Pinkett Smith, 43, has never shied away from bold choices in his everyday outfits, and now that includes a few casual dresses, if his ensemble seen out in Calabasas, CA on Thursday, April 9 is any indication. Looking good as usual, Jaden!
Jaden Smith Wearing Dresses: Says He Shops For ‘Girl Clothes’
Jaden Smith, 16, was spotted out in Calabasas wearing denim shorts with a distressed black sweatshirt dress, underneath a white crocheted tank top. He accessorized his outfit with high leopard-print socks, black Nike kicks and a black backpack. The look isn’t out of the ordinary for the teen, who favors highly original looks like zebra-print harem pants and white wedding Batman masks.
Thursday’s androgynous look wasn’t the first time that Jaden tried wearing dresses. He shared a photo of himself on Instagram, Tuesday, April 7, as he modeled a white and black t-shirt dress from TopShop over black harem pants and his trusty sneakers.
“Went to TopShop to buy some Girl Clothes I Mean ‘Clothes,'” he captioned the photo. Say what?
The actor and rapper tweeted about dresses on Thursday as well.
Jaden’s not alone in his love for skirts and dresses. A whole army of male celebs have counted themselves as fans of the fashion, including: Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Mos Def, A$AP Rocky, Vin Diesel, Marc Jacobs, Jared Leto, and rock stars like David Bowie and the late Kurt Cobain.
It’s no surprise that one of the ethereal Smith siblings has followed an unconventional path while upping his fashion game. What would you expect from the kid who has made himself so in tune with the universe that he’s said that he knows your whole life can pass by in six seconds?
We think it’s great that Jaden is so happy and at ease with his fashion choices. You’re right, Jaden — dresses aren’t just “girl clothes” when you’re rocking them so hard.
Maybe Jaden’s new style has been influenced by hanging out with a model or two? Kendall Jenner, 19, caused a few side-eyes when she showed up at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, 21, not with her famous family in tow, but with the Jaden, the ex-boyfriend of little sis Kylie, 17. Scandal!
Jaden’s style evolution surely could be the handiwork of little sister Willow Smith, 14, too. The singer who whipped her hair back and forth has been known to don a few unique looks of her own. From crop tops and kimonos, bleached hair and shirts printed like body paint, her sartorial risks are nothing to sneeze at either.
HollywoodLifers, are you into Jaden’s new look?
