30 Seconds to Mars stopped by the MTV studios for a photo shoot recently looking H-O-T hotttttt. Our favorite look came from frontman Jared Leto, who showed up rocking his usual distressed style bad boy, I’m-in-a-band look that’s hard not to love. That’s why we searched all over for the exact red-rimmed aviator shades, torn navy blue tee, and studded leather jacket that he wore. What we found? Not much! So, we decided to put our creative juices to work and figure out how to hand-craft the look (that’s probably what Jared Leto did, anyway!). Here’s how you can steal this hottie’s style…
GET THE LOOK …
STEP 1: SCORE THE SHADES
For his shady look, any oversize, red-rimmed aviators will work. Try these: (1) Prada PR 57MS ($290, sunglasshut.com); (2) Vintage Aviator Style #P8790 ($14, thesunglassmanonline.com); or (3) SW Aviator Style #1178 ($16.95, sunglasswarehouse.com).
STEP 2: SLASH THE TEE
Now, this is where you get crafty. Buy a plain navy blue T-shirt one size too big, like Cherokee’s Xavier Navy Basic Tee ($7.99, target.com). First, cut away the collar band of the shirt. Next, cut off the sleeves of the shirt. Starting at the armpit, cut or tear down the side seam of the shirt. Stop about five inches before the bottom hem of the T-shirt and repeat on the other side.
STEP 3: STUD THE JACKET
This is the fun part! Find a motorcycle jacket — old or new, like this Excelled Leather Motorcycle Jacket from Kohl’s ($179, kohls.com). Put the jacket on a flat surface and place studs, like these cone studs ($14.99 for 100, kitkraft.biz), exactly where you want them to go. Next push the stud prongs through the fabric and fold the backs down. No sewing required!
