The Daily Whatup!

Just another weblog

Justin Bieber

Today it was announced that Google Zeitgeist 2011 most searched person, to no one’s surprise, is…JUSTIN BIEBER!!!

His 15.5 MILLION Belieber twitter followers.  @justinbieber

His 38 MILLION Belieber facebook fans.

So why is The Beibs such a phenomenon?  Why is there BieberFever?

There are currently no major boy bands like New Kids On The Block, Backstreet Boys, nor N’Sync, so the solo artists are shining.  The nearly 30 million teenage girls around the country see him as their teen idol.  We all know that everything men do is to impress women, so teenage boys want to be Justin Bieber.  They want to dance like him, act like him, and definitely dress like him!  Well that girly hair thing wasn’t so aspirational for a while, but now he’s all good 🙂

Indeed he has made a transition as he gets older, matures, and voice gets deeper.  We can attribute this transition to his swag coach, Ryan Good.

According to the Kansas City Star, Bieber says, “I have a swagger coach that helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do,”

Yes! There’s more: “He has helped me with my style and just putting different pieces together and being able to layer and stuff like that.”

Everyone needs a swag coach, including many of you out there.  We don’t necessarily want to make it public like the Biebs has, so come back to this blog as much as you want for some tips here and there.  Going forward, I shall anoint this to be my swag blog…my SWOG!!!

Let’s check out the good work his swag coach has done over the last couple years.  Here is Justin Bieber in early 2010.

He’s got his signature girl bangs and red hoodie.  Not sure what he is more known for the red or the purple hoodie, but his hoodie game is nice.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a number of cool hoodies in your closet, but you have to switch up how you wear it.  He always had it layered under a jacket.  That is one of the many ways.  Wear it without the jacket layer, hood up, hood down, zipped up, zipped down to show a cool graphic tee underneath.  A bright colored hood will become the center of attention, so switch it up in different ways to draw people’s eyes elsewhere.  Wearing the hoodie in different ways makes it seem like completely new outfits!

Now look at Justin Bieber in November 2011 on the Today Show.

This Christmas jacket actually got a bunch of buzz.  Some people hated it, while others loved it.  I loved it because his or Ryan Good’s finger is right on the pulse of the trend.

Junya Watanabe Christmas jacket

AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans

Chanel sneakers

The way to interpret this for the every day dude is the varsity jacket, which is really popular right now.  The leather sleeves and contrasting color body can be found in a number of collections in the market.  AG jeans are within reach of most in the designer market, but there are cheaper options as well.  MEK Denim achieves just that with the designer back pockets at a lower pricepoint.  The key here is to get a narrow or slim fit.  They don’t have to be skin tight, but do not cover up your shoes.  You also do not need Chanel sneakers, but the hi tops are the key here.  The narrow leg allows you to show off the dope kicks that you have to complete the outfit.  Varsity jacket, slim jeans, and hi tops should be a staple Fall look!

We should all duly note the Biebs got a well deserved haircut.  The bangs became his signature, so much that they fetched $40G at an auction hosted by talk show host and huge Justin Bieber fan, Ellen Degeneres.  She then donated the money to Gentle Barn Foundation, DeGeneres’s animal rescue foundation.  Great that he got a haircut and great to donate money.  All in all a great move.

Your look and the way you carry yourself is your style…your swag!  Be concious of it and own it!
