The star dishes on his staple style items and favorite brands.
Miguel is not only one to watch because of his talent in the studio, but also because of his impeccable style. The singer, who's currently touring with Alicia Keys, recently penned a travel log for the New York Times to reveal his fashion picks as he jet-setted on a week-long trip from Los Angeles to South Africa.
"Most days, I wake up an artist; other days, I wake up a businessman. This day, I woke up feeling both," he starts. "I put on a vintage white burnout tee, gray Calvin Klein blazer, orange Costume National pants and Pierre Hardy gray leopard creepers. It was almost that rock-star business mogul look — allow me my aspirations — especially with my vintage John Lennon-style Ray-Bans and my usual accessories."
Some of his usual accessories include a Cast of Vices ring, a custom herringbone or Cuban link chain, Cartier bracelets and pieces from Great Frog. But not all of his favorite picks are designer. After waking up with a headache and an "I don't really care" attitude, Miguel grabbed a piece that's quite personal to him.
"It was a mild day, mood and weather-wise, which made me happy that I packed my favorite denim jacket. It used to be my dad's and it's worn in, and out, quite awesomely."
