No surprise, but John Hughes movies remain our pop culture comfort food. A little bit of teen angst, a little bit of romance–it’s the perfect pick-me-up or sob-along-with. Naturally, we love The Breakfast Club. In honor of the classic ’80s flick, here are updated versions of the outfits worn by the three main male characters. Bender’s rebellious look–plaid shirt and fingerless leather gloves–is still timeless, while jock Andrew’s varsity jacket is totally on-trend for this season. We even took studious Brian’s “my mom picked out my outfit” look and made it a little more chill with khaki jeans and bold blue high-tops.

Photographer and fashion muse Blake Jacobsen never ceases to impress us with his always stylish and denim infused looks. We love that Blake can pull off everything from rockin’ grungy ensembles to this dapper and casual-cool look. His cuffed slim-fit jeans in a dark wash are perfectly styled with a navy blue blazer and pattern-clashing vest and tie. We love that this—what could be considered–dressed up look exudes a young and fresh vibe. And its exactly because of those styling choices like the patter-clashing that it manages to stay of-the-moment. The pop of color the camel braided belt adds is right on, as well as the cool factor the slightly pulled back beanie gives the entire outfit. All in all, an ace look it our book!
Catch more images of Blake’s look plus more on his Lookbook page and his blog The Style Manual.
