OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #807
By Kasia Hastings, 6 May 2016
It’s almost the weekend – no, it is the Weeknd and he’s wearing a really nice shacket.
The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, is back in the studio and, according to the man himself, ‘music is being made’. In fact it’s being made with the same team behind his excellent debut mixtape, House Of Balloons. But while we eagerly await the indie R&B enigma’s third official album, we’ll settle for some sartorial inspiration.
Out in New York for a night out, the singer gets his outfit off to a strong start with this navy Levi's shacket. Tesfaye’s a man who knows that a thicker overshirt style like this is a perfect transitional piece to pop over a T-shirt once the sun has gone down. Underneath is a solid black tee, waiting to be unveiled once things hot up again in the club, while on the bottom he keeps things simple with a pair of black jeans. He adds a pair of monochrome Nike Air Jordan 12s and a couple of chains and he’s ready for… the weekend?
