A$AP Rocky's style evolution

By Matt Glazebrook, 3 October 2015

The style prince of hip-hop turns 27 today, and he's spent at least 4 of those years looking absolutely excellent at all times. Which is good reason to celebrate A$AP Rocky's big day with five big hits from his sartorial back catalogue.

A$AP Sporty

When the man known to his mum as Rakim Meyers played Brixton Academy in 2013, he paid tribute to his host country by dressing in a hip-hop approximation of a 20s Oxbridge PE kit. Unsurprisingly, he looked on (chariots of) fire.

A$AP Swanky

Things you need to look the absolute tops if (when?) you get invited to New York fashion fest the Costume Institute Gala: a crisp white dress shirt with a winged collar, sharp skinny black trousers, pointy ankle boots (polished to within an inch of their lives), a very cool three-quarter length tux/coat jacket and gorgeous supermodel Chanel Iman as a consort.

A$AP Comfy

We've said it before – no one could look this cool and relaxed while eating a toasted sandwich unless he was fully at ease with the brilliance of his outfit. Old-school rap vibes meet cheesy, bready deliciousness.

A$AP Preppy

If your girl won't indulge you by stepping out in a monochrome varsity jacket to match yours, show her this pic and see if she doesn't change her tune.

A$AP Stripy

Lord Flacko’s been going big on stripes in 2015. From the sweet red and white Breton striped T-shirt from Japanese brand Unused that features in the video for comeback single L$D to this black-and-white number from a recent live show, it’s a classic look that Rocky has made his own.
