Blake Lewis Loves Wearing ‘Grandpa Pants’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol finalist Blake Lewis is known for his funky fashion sense, but the beatbox boy admits his style was influenced by a couple of old friends.

Lewis – who is hoping to take home the Idol crown during the season finale this Wednesday (May 23) – says some of his fashion sense can be attributed to his old roommate who was a professional stylist and surprisingly, to “old grandpas everywhere.”

Says Lewis: “I love wearing grandpa pants and slacks. People think I have style because I don’t wear jeans but grandpa pants are just so much cooler and comfortable.”

Aside from “grandpa pants,” which are staples of Lewis’s outfits each week, the Idol hopeful says he enjoys experimenting with patterns, colors, and hairstyles when it comes to putting together his trendy look.

He adds, “I love colors that pop, crazy designs, and an overall funk factor in my look. I like to think of it as a hip- hop chic style that’s always changing and makes me feel comfortable on stage.”
