We have some exciting and startling news: Justin Bieber may be on the brink of entering his inevitable Joanne era of style. For anyone who's been living under a dark, sad rock, let us quickly explain: with her latest album, Joanne, Lady Gaga launched herself boots-first into a new chapter of style, one consisting of cowboy hats, fringe, leather, and the overall vibe of someone who's just walked across a field after shooting down their lame horse.
We're far from delusional--we know Justin can't possibly be considering a country-pop crossover album anytime soon. But in terms of fashion, he's been keeping to this saggy-panted, bad boy basketball shorts look for quite some time, and we're wondering if he, like us, might be itching for something new.
That's when a miracle occurred: Justin wore a cowboy hat while walking on the sidewalk, and got us to thinking: is this the beginning of a sexy cowboy phase of fashion for the troubled crooner? Consider his tattooed figure sporting leather pants, a bolo tie, and red circular spectacles, or else a fringed denim jacket and acid wash cutoffs. It's so crazy it just might work.
And if our style observations are any indication, our prayers may have been answered. Exhibit A:
Earlier this year he wore a distressed denim jacket with several patches and decals. Sinner's prayer vibes, anyone?
