We all know that A$AP Rocky can nail the most eccentric of looks, but the rapper reminded us of the value of simply bossing the basics last week.

Although we spend most of our time encouraging you to explore more adventurous palettes, we can’t argue that, when done right, an all-black outfit can be as stylish as they come. And A$AP Rocky reaffirmed that idea, strolling through TriBeCa in New York in a monochrome get-up that didn’t overcomplicate things.


The key is to keep things simple, but make sure there's enough detail to avoid your 'fit looking too plain. A$AP gave us a solid example here, throwing on a black, oversized sweatshirt from Balençiaga, and allowing the white logo across the midriff to stand out. Then he paired the boxy cut with some smart pants, leaving the cuffs to fall baggily over his classic pair of Vans Old Skools. Simply brilliant.
