Style Inspo: Fashion Chameleon, Anyone? Alex Diaz Gives 'Retro' A Millennial Spin

Alex Diaz is one of the most versatile Kapamilya talents ever to hit mainstream entertainment. His personality inspires confidence, energy, and cheer plus he's got a bold way of expressing himself with clothing. Alex's sense of style is hardly plain or minimalist. It's either jump-out-at-you preppy or athleisure with an eccentric pop twist. We like that he couldn't care less about what people think when it comes to how he expresses himself through style. Alex does pretty much what he wants but is still down-to-earth enough to get certain cues from his stylists.

 

1. The Hottie Hiker. Neon prints against black? Yes, please! We love that Alex never avoids blatant contrast and psychedelic prints in clothing. We're getting retro MC Hammer vibes tied down to today with a modern twist.

2. The Fresh Prince. Will Smith might have made the snapback a Fresh Prince's crown forevuh since the 90s. Alex caught on to Will's sense of style and there's nothing that changes the hip-hop vibe or levels it up like a black inner tee instead of a white one.

3. The New Radical. Light-colored fisherman hats we last remember took the music and urban youth scene by storm when all of us were singing "You Get What You Give" or "Someday We'll Know."  Alex wears it like a true millenial man.

4. The Karate Kid. Wax on, wax off, Kid. We're waiting for that kick from out of nowhere, now. This look on Alex also brings back all our Tekken and Street Fighter memories, too.

5. The K-Drama King. You never really think of Alex to be of oriental ethnicity, but given the right makeup and hair, watch this. For this moment we have the "maximalist"—as he once called himself—in minimalist style. In this, we find him in the Gong Yoo vein of things actually projecting K-Drama charm.

6. The Asian Ghetto Boy. Bad boy, anyone? We're waitng for Psy to pop out anytime now. In a jacket the color of nineties kiddie slime or The Hulk Alex certainly has the upper hand here.
