College Cool RULES: Pharrell Williams

At a show in Paris at the Grand Palais: Picasso & The Masters

How many people can truly wear the sames thing over and over again and we love them all the same? Pharrell Williams truly has staple wardrobe items and he wears them well. I thought Andre 3000 was the “staple wardrobe” king with his A’s hat, converse, and suspenders, but Mr.NERD trumps him. After browsing through some of his photos- I noticed that Pharrell seems to have a few permanent staples and he also has seasonal staples. You may ask, what does he do to switch it up? Well, he just changes the color of his staples…

For example this summer/early fall he rocked red BBC hats, but lately he’s been rockin blue BBC hats. This summer/early fall he was rockin black/navy Vans, but lately he’s been rocking his tan Vans. This summer he rocked his white and navy/burgundy trimmed sweater, while lately he’s been rocking his army fatigued get-up.

Pharrell on MTV earlier this past summer.

Pharrell in Atlanta last month w/ Common.

He throws on a pastel colored polo every once in a while and maybe a plaid shirt for these cold months. His wardrobe is so simple, yet he makes all the Best Dressed List. Gentleman, this should tell you that it’s not about quantity it’s about quality and swagger. I feel like Pharrell is unconsciously being a great example for young men with his sense of style. His wardrobe says ” You do not have to own 200 pairs of shoes to be cool, I rock $45$/$60 dollar Vans on a regular and I’m the shyt”. I LOVE IT. Now of course Pharrell has a lifestyle that involves more informal settings, so if you’re a banker or something this obviously only applies to your weekend gear.

I also feel like his sense of style tells all men that it’s important to figure out your sense of style and be confident with it– wear what makes you feel good because Pharrell surely does.
