YG rides a bike in the music video for his song “Proud.”
YG, the rapper from Compton, is a unisex style icon. This is not because he sits front row with Anna Wintour at Paris Fashion Week (he wasn’t even at the Met Gala) or because he raps about wearing Gucci slides (he doesn’t; buy Still Brazy out now.). He is simply a phenomenal dresser with original taste and amazing fits. Lately, that typically means oversize shirts that hang loose just the right way and cutoff shorts that say he’s confident enough to show a little skin above the knee and some wild patent-leather shoes to make sure one thing is absolutely clear: YG will wear what he wants and he will always look amazing in it. It’s a casual, put-together comfort to aspire to, which is why I want to dress like YG all the time, every day, from now until forever. Especially now that it’s California weather here in NYC. If you, like me, are fully invested in this look, here’s how to achieve it.
Women Loose Short Sleeve Oversized T Shirt
YG’s shirts are always oversize. They hang loose across in that perfect, oh I just rolled out of bed and threw this on way. That not trying, secretly trying way. This tee comes in a few colors, all work.
All of the above (button downs, football jerseys, oversize tees) should be worn with a pair of cutoff shorts. The key here is that shorts have to be slightly longer so that you can see them peeking out under the oversize tops.
Moving down to the feet, YG’s signature look as of late is wearing mid-calf athletic socks with a pair of loafers or patent-leather oxfords. Kind of like socks and sandals, but different. It’s called having a unique sense of style.
