OUTFIT OF THE DAY
#1,020 SKEPTA: KING OF GARMS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 8 December 2016
Talk about Skepta, yo where should we start?
The grime MC has had one eventful 2016. He beat the likes of David Bowie to win this year’s Mercury Prize and, just last week, performed a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace. Reload that sentence and you’ll soon realise how much of an icon the man is. It’s no surprise, then, that when he attended the British Fashion Awards on Tuesday night, Skepta turned up in a ‘fit that was straight fire. Because dressing like a mess? Nah, that’s not him.
As a base, he donned an all-khaki tracksuit and fashion-draped a leopard-print jacket over the top. His accessories game was also strong, including a trapper hat and shades, and a pair of black creps rounded off the look. When it comes to Skeppy’s style, then, boy better know.
