Harlem’s hustler prince, A$AP Rocky attended the amfAR New York Gala this week looking every inch the ‘Purple Swag’ swilling hip-hop star.

Clearly up for some clean, gangster fun, A$AP tore up the red carpet in a whiter-than-white shirt and some crisp tailoring, which is a strong move away from his beloved Comme des F*ckdown threads of yesteryear. 

An important style tip to note from A$AP is that while a swanky do is no place for streetwear, there are always tricks to make your formal gear stand out from the crowd. In this instance, he’s left the tie at home and neatly buttoned up his shirt for a smart, fuss-free look. Wearing a mid-length overcoat is also a nice way to break with the tradition and add an extra dimension and element of cool to your look.
