Style Defined, Celebrity Edition: A$AP Rocky
In Style Defined, we feature a haute look from a celebrity or influencer that you can recreate. We know everyone doesn’t have the same budget to work with, so we’ll give you affordable and luxury versions to make the look your own.
With much of the country opening back up, we finally have a reason to get dressed up and go out again. That means fashion is back baby, and rapper A$AP Rocky’s outfit is filling our style void. The rapper attended the Tribeca Film Festival earlier in the week for the premiere of his documentary Stockholm Syndrome, wearing a Celine suit and Bottega Veneta shoes. While we love the all-black look, the main focus was on the accessories. The “Fashion Killa” singer wore pearls around his neck and on his fingers. Talk about making a scene.

A$AP Rocky has become a prime figure in the hip-hop community. He has been in the game for more than a decade and has released seemingly endless hits that have solidified his status. A$AP Rocky’s rap career began in 2007 after joining A$AP Mob crew, a Harlem-based group of producers, rappers, fashion designers, etc. However, it wasn’t until July 2011 that he would start seeing recognition for his work when he released his single “Purple Swag.” Not only did this song become a hit, but it set A$AP Rocky on the path to becoming a mainstream artist. Since then, the rapper has released three studio albums, has been nominated for two Grammys, and has won several awards, including a BET Award and an MTV Video Music Award Japan. Did we mention the rapper has also dabbled in acting too?
The rapper is often referred to as one of Hip-hop's best-dressed stars, as he can wear anything and make it look fashionable. He looks great wearing an oversized suit or a plaid kilt as seen on GQ’s June/July issue. The man cannot make a mistake when it comes to fashion. He isn’t afraid of taking risks, and that is what makes his style impeccable.
The rapper loves to dress in a mixture of designer, hype, and affordable brands. A$AP Rocky is not the one to listen to trends as he is the trendsetter himself. One day you can find the artist rocking a monochromatic suit, and the next, he can be in a comfortable, laid-back fit wearing a graphic tee and a pair of jeans. The versatility of the artist's style is unmatched, which is why the rapper is constantly becoming the face of fashion brands and sitting front row at fashion shows.
