10 Times Sam Hunt Was a Trendsetter

You won’t find any cowboy hats or Western boots in Sam Hunt’s closet. When it comes to his sense of style, Hunt bucks the trends of traditional country attire.

The “Take Your Time” singer says a lot of his music is influenced by hip-hop. Those influences sure do show through in his wardrobe as well.

Never afraid to take a fashion risk, Hunt is always sporting daring styles – all the way from fun hats to funky shoes. And if he can’t find clothes on the rack that match his style, he makes up his own trends. You’ll see what we mean…

Flannels are a hot trend right now, but camo cargo pants? Not so much. Though leave it to Sam Hunt to think to mix the two patterns. It wouldn’t work for most people, but Hunt can effortlessly pull off this look.

With a baggy white tunic tee, white skinny jeans and white sneakers, Hunt looks like he’s about paint a house in his all-white-everything ensemble at the 2015 CMT Music Awards. While he did land his first CMT Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year, Hunt also landed on some of the worst-dressed lists for the night. What can we say? You win some, you lose some.

Why wear a sleeve around your arm when you could rip it off and wear it around your neck? This final look is a Sam Hunt original. Is it supposed to look like a turtleneck? A scarf? A bandanna? Who knows! But there’s one thing for sure: Hunt has the confidence to rock any style he wants – even if it’s something he makes up on his own.
