Lately the 17 year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith has been making major gender and style waves with his crazy outfits, style habits, and bold statements. Much like his younger sister Willow, Jaden Smith has been breaking barriers for men's fashion since day one, much to the excitement of many of his fans.
Most recently, he made headlines when he became the new face of the Louis Vuitton's womenswear line and posed shirtless in more photos in a black knee-length skirt with a red rose tucked behind his ear. Additionally, Smith killed at his prom, escorted by Hunger Games star Amandla Steinberg, in a midi-length skirt topped with a long black tunic.
Smith has been very public about his actions and career, and he opened up to GQ in an interview last October. He defines himself as non-binary and plans to disappear like Galileo after making his contributions to the world. These kids are breaking conventional stereotypes right and left, so the question to be posed now is how did we get these wonder kids? Where did Smith get his start as a young champion of gender fluidity?
Let's take a look back at the outfits and styling that made Jaden Smith the awesome fashion forward guy he is today!
1. This Awesome Green Tunic
The layered look suits Smith. It's chill and comfortable, and totally works for him.
2. It's A Double Rainbow!
How did he pull off matching typography to a rainbow graffiti print? I really couldn't tell you.
3. Awwwww Jaden And His Dad Go Formal
The Fresh, um, Duke of Bell-Air with the Prince; this was the beginning of his shorts over pants phase.
4. Mini Suits
MIni Me? Look at how crazily similar the Smith family is in this old red carpet photo! Wow, how the littler Smith's style has changed.
5. J Squared
Justin and Jaden together make for a very baggy pair.
6. "Florals For Spring? Groundbreaking."
Spread the love, '70s Jaden. That bomber jacket is awesome.
7. When You Mismatch Shoes On Purpose
At least, I think it was on purpose. He pulled it off anyway!
8. Who Wears Short Shorts?
Jaden wears short shorts.
9. Tunics Are So Hot Right Now
Here he is pictured walking in NYC. Do these two borrow each other's tunics? Because I would.
10. Literally Just Getting Milk Or Something!
All I want is to some day get away with this look walking to a Dunkin Donuts.
11. Pattern Mixing With Mama Smith
This boy does pattern mixing better than I ever could. I am so envious of his gift. This is probably his best besides his cool prom dress.
I think we all need to throw caution to the wind a little more and expand on fashion trends. He is obviously doing something right! Watch Jaden's Louis Vuitton video below!
