Several years ago, during one of my wonderful summers at Camp Wawenock, I played the role of Danny Zuko in Grease. Wawenock is an all girls camp so the fact that I was playing the role of a man wasn’t weird. Dressing up as a T Bird was one of the highlights of the role, so naturally when Alex of A Boston Blazer approached me about a 50’s Greaser collaboration, I jumped at the chance.
While this shoot was all about getting into character, a lot of qualities from the 1950’s still resonate with my style today. Leather jackets will never go out of style and are only made better by metallic embellishments. Black on black is still ruling the fashion scene and it doesn’t look like the trend (can you call it a trend if it’s been around forever?) will be going anywhere soon. For this look, I chose to pair sleek leggings with a formfitting leotard. Topping it off with a slick pompadour and a bold red lip really brought me back to my camp days but with a slightly more feminine edge. Overall, this was one of the most fun shoots I’ve been a part of and it has inspired me to rethink how I want to present myself in 2015.
