Celebrate in Style for William S. Burroughs’ Birthday

Happy Birthday William S. Burroughs! The godfather of beat died in 1997, but we are honoring him on his birthday with a special edition of get-the-look: the Beat edition. William S. Burroughs is a literary legend best known for his books ‘Naked Lunch’ and ‘Junkie’. Burroughs became friends with Jack Kerouac (On The Road) and Allen Ginsberg (Howl) in New York during the early 1940s and quickly became a cornerstone and figurehead of Beat culture.

The beat influence is wide, from lifestyle to writing style and art to fashion. Channel the beat era with the slideshow above!
