Jake Wesley Rogers on Fashion & Style

Talking to Fashion magazine, Rogers describes how fashion has always been important to him: “What I recognize now is that many people feel they have to follow a script — go to college, get married, have babies, etc., and if that’s your truth, no shade,” he explains. “But I turned these expectations into a game. Going to thrift stores allowed me to curate who I was and who I wanted to be. Being different pushed me to be more different, and fashion has always been my superhero cape.”

Rogers Talks Elton John & Style Influence

While Jake Wesley Rogers draws frequent comparisons to music superstars such as Elton John, he acknowledges that he was not always aware of the artist’s work. In describing Lady Gaga as one of his early influences, Rogers says, “Elton John wasn’t a thing in my house growing up, but I recognize now that he, Bowie and Madonna obviously influenced Gaga.” Rogers continues, “I got a lot of that inspiration inadvertently through her.”

When it comes to fashion and style, Jake Wesley Rogers has one muse in mind. “My number one fashion and everything icon has always been Stevie Nicks,” Rogers says. “So at the end of the day, I’m just trying to be as cool as her.”
