Buddy & Roy
I've been obsessively listening to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly's infectious tunes. I'm not trying to sound like a music snob, but their songs sound better on vinyl since every little hiss and crackle creates a vintage and intimate sound. It's ironic how the two men looked like complete "squares", yet their melodies are surreal and strange. Black, bold, plastic glasses are also ubiquitous with their image (which look great on girls too). Their style is absurdly clean and crisp. Each strand of hair is meticulously in order and their suits are perfectly ironed. They look like classic squares, but have the enchanting ability to make any girl swoon.
In reverence to these legendary musical souls, I've gathered some modern pieces to recreate their looks for gals.
