Prison can be a scary and tough place for anyone who gets sentenced there, and while there are several negative aspects often associated with jail, these edgy incarcerated looks are showcasing that fashion has no bounds when it comes to using themes and references from the real world.

The types of clothing that prisoners are required to wear are often very plain and simple, with traditional outfits often featuring an iconic striped look. Nonetheless, certain fashion designers have opted to incorporate the otherwise distinct look of prisoners into their clothing lines, adding a very striking and unique overall appearance.

From jailbird editorials featuring models wearing black and white ensembles to menswear lines featuring models dressed like criminals, these edgy incarcerated looks are showcasing that inspiration can come from the strangest of places.
