Steal That Look: Bob Dylan

Hello everyone and welcome back to "Steal That Look"! Last time I created two different outfits inspired by The Beach Boys and since I received some positive feedback I decided to come back with a new article. This time I decided to recreate two outfits worn by Bob Dylan, a famous folk-rock musician from the 60's and 70's.

For the first look I chose to recreate the outfit he wore during the photo shoot for his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. It's not something you could wear right now but would probably be appropriate for the winter time. This outfit is rather pricey since pea coats aren't that cheap but I think it came together well. I created both a male and female version of the outfit (like in my last article). A side note for the women's pants: I didn't realize the price until after I made the outfit. You could probably find a much cheaper alternative at Macy's or JCPenney.

Prices for male outfit:

Coat @ reiss.com for $320
Scarf @ scarves.net for $15.95
Pants @ dockers.com for $39.99
Boots @ drmartens.com for $140

Prices for female outfit:

Coat @ zappos.com for $89
Scarf @ forever21.com for $8.99
Pants @ stylebop.com for $299
Boots @ drmartens.com for $140

For the second outfit I wanted to try and make it more affordable (as suggested by someone on the BBS), so I chose to recreate an outfit that Dylan wore for one of my favorite pictures of him. This photo shoot was done at his home in Woodstock, New York for the Saturday Evening Post. I like the simplicity of the outfit and that it looks good for either males or females. Also, the hat he wore is one of my favorite styles (the Panama hat if you're wondering). I used Rainbow sandals because I like the brand but you can substitute in any pair of leather flip flops.

Prices for male outfit:

Shirt @ kohls.com for $44
Jeans @ uniqlo.com for $49.90
Sandals @ rainbowsandals.com for $51
Hat @ amazon.com for $35

Prices for female outfit:

Shirt @ target.com for $22.99
Jeans @ ae.com for $39.95
Sandals @ rainbowsandals.com for $54
Hat @ lucluc.com for $14

I hope you guys enjoyed this article as much as I enjoyed making it - so far, this series has been pretty fun for me. As always, please leave your feedback and suggestions in the BBS, and I'll (hopefully) be back next week with another installment of "Steal That Look"!
