Michael Jackson left his mark on history (or should we say, “HIStory”) not only for his catchy tunes and killer dance moves, but for his iconic style that essentially became his identifier both on and off the stage. Despite wearing many hats (though literally speaking, he remained true to his fedora) as a singer, dancer, philanthropist, and more, Jackson was first and foremost an entertainer whose talent and global influence have remained unmatched.
So in light of the fifth anniversary of his death on June 25, we’re paying a style tribute to the King of Pop with “off the wall” pieces he made popular, from brogues to the military jacket. Let his fashion legacy live on in your closet with spotlight-stealing sequins, red-hot moto jackets, and menswear-inspired tailoring. Integrate one sparkly piece at a time or wear them altogether—there are no rules; nothing is ever really “black or white.”
