Style Icon: Kanye West


Last week, I posted the Best Dressed Men in Hollywood. The list included ten of Hollywood’s finest from Brad Pitt to T.I- it was a very diverse list. As promised I will also be covering each person individually- so let’s start with numero uno- Mr.Cocky himself. . .

1. Kanye West: I know he’s one cocky dude, but whose flyer than Kanye West- ummm, no one. If there were one guy’s style I recommend anyone, who is trying to “step his style up”, copy- it would be Mr. West. He bases his style on mixing retro with modern, very much like the Urban Gent-Style. With his wide variety of threads, he can easily fit in at a hip-hop club or a bow-tie only red carpet affair. I really want to thank Kanye’s ex girlfriend, the stylist, Alexis for enhancing Kanye’s look- men, its always great to have a savvy fashionista girlfriend in your life.

Alexis and Kanye

They were such a haute couple.

So now some of you may ask, “How do I get Kanye’s Look”- well unless you’re balling it will be hard to get his exact look- he wears the designers that he raps about. . . you know designers like Louis Vuitton. . . but it’s easy to get his style. The key is combining prep and hip-hop and maybe a little couture or vintage. . . in layman’s term: combine brands like Lacoste (prep) & Ecco (hip-hop), and don’t be afraid to mix it with a jacket or vest you found at the thrift store (vintage) and some shoes you painted yourself (couture). . .any variation of the looks will give you a Kanye-esque vibe.


“That that that, that don’t kill me, can only make me stronger. . .” Believe it or not that song helped me through a rough situation last year, lol, . . . but that song also made many people want the shutter shades Kanye rocks when performing the hit song. Now-a-days you can find them anywhere, almost all hip-hop/rock or trendy stores carry them. You can also find them online at Shutter Shades Online or you can buy them for around 8 bucks at Urban Boundaries.
