Today’s Celebrity Look for Less is inspired by hip-hop style icon, Kanye West. Kanye is a regular on the fashion scene, often attending runway shows, and blogging about his passion for couture and fashion as an art. He has even appeared as a guest columnist for Complex magazine (owned by famed fashion designer/entrepeneur, Marc Ecko).
Kanye’s weekend look is casual, put-together, and easy to achieve. Here’s what you’ll need:
Loose or relaxed fit chinos: I found a pair at gap.com for around $45.
A deep v-neck or cardigan sweater + an easy-fit, white, button-up shirt. I found a Tommy Hilfiger cardigan at Macy’s for $79 and a great deal on wrinkle-free dress shirts at Kohl’s: $16!
Some cool sneakers and a casual belt. Urban Outfitters has a really great selection of cool kicks, and I found the perfect belt to complete the look on sale at Macy’s for $37.
Kanye is also well known for having an affinity for luxury luggage a-la Louis Vuitton. If your tastes run as expensive as Kanye’s, but you’re lacking his bankroll; you may consider investing in small luxury goods from discount retailers such as eluxury.com. I suggest the Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Card Holderfor a touch of panache.
