Kat's Style Icons: Duane Allman

All of the Allman Brothers Band and their friends, really.  I have so much to say about the style of this era; not just the style, but what I find so magical about it.  For the time being, we'll just bask in the following images.
Nudie, nudie, nudie!  This may seem like an odd lead in to a post on style, as style typically implies 'clothing.'  However, style, as I will be referring to it, is so much more.  It's the sights, the sounds, the context and timing, the attitude.  
Context.  Though possible, I find it hard for anyone to look horrible if he is in front of a huge amount of music equipment outside a legendary venue.  The Fillmore East, 1970.
Style icon: Holly Hobbie
I love how this particular outfit works equally well in 1970 and 2012. And I think the guitar strap looks particularly cool. 
Look!  The Allman Brothers were on Instagram!
Barry Oakley and Duane Allman.  Model basics with a 'wow' accessory.  I just love Barry's necklace. 
Flashin' a little bosom!
I like my music stripped down.
Model basics again.  Keep the clothing fitted well.  Almost always, it will be successful. 
Beautiful hair.  Just beautiful.
I believe sweaters like this should only be worn if they are pulled up to expose the midriff.  In fact, this is how I wear all my sweaters.
What I love about this is how ludicrous Duane's bright tie dyed teeshirt is, but because the shirt's color matches his coloring, it totally works.  Also helpful - the shirt is well fitting.  This is easily my favorite example of tie dye success.  
I can only speculate about what this shirt was like in color.
I can't say I condone these pants AT ALL; however, I'm glad that Duane at least had the decency to pair them with a basic black top.  Sometimes, particular pieces can be a bit of a style risk.  In cases like this, it's not so much "style" as "damage control."  I love you, Duane!
