The menswear industry has seen a massive shake up in the past couple of years, and with music personalities and socialites having a crack at design, a whole new style of fashion has been born. One of these people disrupting the industry is Tinie Tempah. Best known as a rapper and songwriter, the man hailing from the UK has been coined as the best dressed man in Britain.
Not only does his personal style make waves in the industry, his own label, What We Wear, has been shown during London Fashion Week on a number of occasions. Known to rarely rely on a stylist, his authentic style and passion for clothes has resonated with the fashion community, along with his 865,000 followers on Instagram.
Combining luxe sportswear with denim, basics and prints, scroll below to shop Tinie Tempah’s best looks.
There is nothing fresher than an all-white ensemble, if you’re brave enough to rock the stark look. We suggest mixing the shades up slightly as to create depth and tone, take some cues from our ‘How to wear white jeans’ article over here. But take notice if you have a pale skin tone as it may wash you out. If so, try another all-colour ensemble to achieve the same effect.
On vacation: Do Not Disturb
The print cuban shirt has proven to be hugely popular this year as people embrace the ’80s dad look. We say the louder the better, but as a rule of thumb, keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple.
Pink is the new Black
As we’ve said before, pink is the new black – period. Best used in accents or key pieces behind a simple look, you can’t go wrong with millennial pink. Sport it with confidence and you’re onto a winner.
Not your Grandma’s knit
As with the move towards ’80s and ’90s fashion, comes the return of the humble old-school knit we all adored as kids. In true Tempah style, the rapper elevates the look with patchwork colour, tying it all together with tonal pieces – something you can do with any colour.
Double denim, trench style
Double denim is not new, nor is it groundbreaking but recently, we have seen a slew of modern renditions including the addition of the trench-style jacket. To nail the look, pair the jacket with jeans in a different shade of blue, and chuck on some fresh neutral sneakers to break up the colour.
If you’re looking to make a bold statement with your daily attire, try your hand at colour blocking. For this particular look, opt for one colour, matching the pieces in the same tone. And to break it up, look to shades like black, white and grey.
A pretty stripped back look for Tinie Tempah, you can’t go wrong with a simple t-shirt and coloured jeans. Know what colours work for your skin tone and then go all out. If you need to add a jacket go for something in the same tone.
Bed to Bar
No matter if you wear the full pyjama set, boxers only or go in the nude, PJ’s are now in stye – more importantly, the silk ones. Swapping out the batman print for something more classy, a silk button-down is the way to go for a night time look. Add a pair of relaxed jeans and sneakers for street appeal.
Taste the Rainbow
Its no lie that colour has seen a major comeback like many old-school trends, and while the full rainbow look is a little scary for most people to rock on the daily, it can be easily incorporated into your kit. Start small with accessories and build up to full pieces. If you need some inspo, Missoni are the godfather of the rainbow signature.
