23 Badass Bandit Innovations

From Runway Cowboys to Western Murder Mystery Parties

— August 16, 2012 — Fashion
These badass bandit innovations highlight the clothing styles and looks created by criminals. Better known as gangsters, these badass bandits are known for wearing bandanas, baggy garments and clothes with an all-around gritty look.

Bandits are known for their criminal lifestyles, relation to organized gangs, theft, drugs and piracy. They have been the inspiration behind many crime thriller films such as 'Smokey and the Bandit,' 'Bonnie and Clyde' and most recently, 'Savages,' which is in theaters now.

People get a thrill from danger and law-breaking, and many campaigns have capitalized on this attraction to risky business. Though hopefully these looks won't inspire any bad behavior, those willing to try out these styles can bank on looking good.
