Unlikely Style Icon: Mr Motivator

The younger, or international, readership of my blog might not know of Mr Motivator. In case this applies to you, I suggest you check out this video (complete with authentic incredible 1994 video recorded quality!) of the absolute legend of a man. Yes, that is Tommy aka the green power ranger that he is with. Man, this is taking me right back to my childhood!

Anyway, venturing off memory lane for a little, I cannot help but see Mr Motivator's influence in fashion everywhere right now. Maybe with the Olympics coming up, the British high street is hankering back to a time where everybody would wake up at 7:30am for a little morning workout in front of the telly. Perhaps we need a little motivation in our lives right now and, when we have a celebrity hidden in the depths of our cultural identity called Mr Motivator, who could be a better inspiration?

Just check that out: The print trousers, the so-bright-it-burns colour palette, the retro (well, retro for us now) trainers. Could we find a richer source of inspiration right now? I'm guessing no.


Sometimes, I put together an outfit that is just so eye-wateringly amazing, I have to own it now. This is one of them. It's completely different from my usual style but I just love it. Every element is here, right down to the coloured laces and matchy-matchy head scarf. I don't care if every fashion rule ever screams against perfect matching- If Mr Motivator can get away with it, so can I!
