A$AP Rocky is as gifted in fashion as he is in rapping. Known not to mince his words — Lord Flacko says whatever Lord Flacko wants, be it in interviews or his songs — the Harlem-born rapper, producer, and actor also expresses himself wildly through fashion. We pick out 7 style elements from this fashion killa’s wardrobe.
GRAPHICS: A$AP Rocky likes his prints, and does it on the overload. Google him — some of it might blind you, but he doesn’t give a damn.
FEMME: Leopard prints and wooly pink coats — you’d think these belong to a girl, but a confident man knows how to rock feminine (or oft-associated to be feminine) styles.
LEATHER: Check out the photo on the left: A$AP Rocky injected some edge into this otherwise formal number with ripped jeans and a leather jacket. Leather can easily transform an outfit from ordinary to bad ass.
BOLD EMBROIDERIES: A$AP Rocky is the perfect example of the Mark Twain quote, “All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.” On paper, a dog-embroidered bomber jacket or a plaid sweater with fruit (?) prints sound like a tacky disaster, but he manages to look effortlessly chic in these. (Also, he’s wearing the same pair of jeans in both outfits — he’s just like us!)
PLAID: Everyone has plaid in their wardrobes. You’re now one step closer to looking like Lord Flacko.
SNEAKERS: On the left is Rick Owens for Adidas running sneakers, and on the right a classic Jeremy Scott Wings for Adidas. Dress as shabby as you want folks, just stun your audience with a sick pair of sneakers.
SUITS: This handsome rapper looks immaculate in any suit he puts on, be it a sharp Topman number (right) or a loose Acne wool suit. Find a suit that is proportionate to your frame, and you’re good to go.
