Pashion [pa-shuhn] (n.) 1. An eclectic Victorian rocker-inspired fashion trend made famous by Pete Doherty. "My wardrobe requires a bit of Pashion in order to become one with Doherty." [see Doherty, Pete]

Pashion Revealed

In my opinion, Pashion is the hottest trend since sliced bread and cotton candy. I am in love with Pete Doherty's sense of (or lack of) style, however you want to describe it. Just as Pete knows how to put on a good show, he can also assemble a nice wardrobe full of various "dirty pretty things", as he becomes a style icon for the dirty glam approach on haute couture.

The Infamous Trilby

The trilby hat holds a special place in my heart as an utterly delectable accessory when paired with the right ensemble of clothing. Vastly mistaken for its predecessor, the fedora, the trilby hat has a deeply indented crown with a narrow brim and a pinch at the front, whereas a fedora has a longer brim and the back of a fedora is less sharply upturned.

A Crimson Masterpiece

The crimson scarf Pete is often seen wearing also has the ability to tie an outfit together, especially when paired with a trilby hat. Nothing breathes Pashion more than a striking crimson scarf.

The Cardigan

The cardigan that Pete is seen wearing here looks like it could belong to a cool, hip gran'pa. The cardigan emits a pleasantly chill attitude.

The Military Cap

The military cap is standalone evidence of Pete's eclectic sense of style. The dark blue military cap will long go down in history as a Pashion staple. This cap is a necessity for pulling off this look.

Give Your Wardrobe A Bi' O' Pashion

While the Pashion trend is more favored by the masculine audience, I have discovered a few key accessories that give a feminine approach to this furor. I also recommend paying a visit to vintage boutiques and thrift stores that offer a wide variety of miscellaneous embellishments.
