Last week, Black male celebrities around the world seemed to have been inspired to bring their oomph game to outerwear. Notice how we said “around the world?” It’s already a given that at Style Rave, we take pleasure in promoting black fashion, beauty and lifestyle and as growth is inevitable, we are expanding our scope across the globe to bring you more inclusive Pan-African content. It’s official—we are going fully global!
Last week, from Nigeria to the U.K., South Africa to the United States, Black stars prioritized glamor while doing shoots, running personal errands or attending socially-distanced events. Whether that meant pulling out the most colorful pieces in their wardrobe or adding some fashion-forward details to their ensemble to liven it, the best dressed went above and beyond and delivered on lewks last week.
Basketball god LeBron James is becoming quite the fashion icon with his consistent style takes on glamorous casual wear. Last week, his layering game saw a play on neutral tones as he donned a pattern-lined brown parka coat over a hooded sweatshirt. A checked baseball hat, a black waist bag and a pair of Bodega sneakers completed the ultra stylish look.
On the set of a music video, Afro pop star, Adekunle Gold looked stunning in an ensemble that was something like a re-imagination of a ‘70s era outfit. The singer and songwriter paired a geometric patterned lilac sweater with a pair of bubblegum colored pants with vertical impressions around it. Rocking several layers of mismatched necklaces, bracelets and rings, Adekunle Gold was able to find a balance between vintage style and contemporary fashion in a risky look that definitely earned him extra cool points.
Down in South Africa, fashion designer Rich Mnisi showed off in fellow South African designer and 2019 LVMH winner, Thebe Magugu’s hooded poncho which he wore over a white shirt and matched with a pair of Levi jeans. With this look, Mnisi was able to marry native South African elements––via the poncho––with western styling to deliver an unforgettable look.
Last week, black male celebrities around the world showed us how to easily elevate outerwear and we sure were boldly inspired.
