With over 72 million followers on Instagram and Twitter, Drake just always seems to lead the people to the next big thing. From his early fame in Canada in the early 2000s to his widely renowned collection of trimmers, he has been continuously causing waves in the music industry since 2010, and it doesn’t look like this star isn’t stopping anytime soon.
Just like his career and dating record, Drake’s style is rapidly evolving and is only getting better. With his recently found love for London and the grime scene, his style has taken to a whole new level and has not only globalised this already massive British trend, but truly defined Drake as a fashion force to be reckoned with. Following the star, we are going to decipher some of his looks so you too can start from the bottom till you’re here.
This relaxed look is perfect for the days you want to make an effort without needing to actually make one. Whether taking the Mrs for some casual drinks or hanging out with the boys, this fit will have everyone taking another look. This variation of Stone Island will have you stopping traffic; double collared and lengthened cut, why just be like him when you can go that little bit better.
Understated Paul Smith Jogging bottoms and a grey Hugo Boss T-shirt get you that little bit closer to Drake’s image. Finally, Nike Air 95s in grey and our Vivienne Westwood necklace complete the look. You probably don’t have the thousands to spend on an extravagant neck piece like him, but thanks to Mainline, boy better know you’re ready to go.
Searching for the perfect dark outfit? Look no further. Channelling our fashion icon, let’s whack out this glorious Fred Perry jacket and show everyone who’s boss. Encourage the mystery and classiness of the dark palette and set yourself apart with trendy Armani jeans and Henri Lloyd radar t-shirt.
Last bit of ammunition you’ll need? These to die for Adidas Tubular shadow trainers will not only add height and texture to your style, but they will have all the girls calling on your cell phone.
Have you always wondered, how do I wear white like Drizzy? Look no further. Wearing white can be difficult; I know it and sadly so do you. Whether it’s the penultimate stain of food, nature or the heart-breaking patch that is your Mrs’ make up, wearing white is hard. We are going to take a page from our style icon but break it up with some jeans.
Those brave souls can wear white head to toe, but for most of us, denim is a perfect way to loosen the look and reduce the surface area. The white hoodie on t-shirt gives you the perfect weapon to hide any mishaps.
So, what are you waiting for? We’ve given you all the tools you need to be the next style icon amongst your peers just like Drake, so go build your wardrobe. You’re too good to be basic, go out there and get the best style you ever had.
