So, it’s halloween and you’re not exactly sure that you want to go out tonight as a “Fashion Killa” in the bunny ears and you refuse to do any “slutty” version of anything. You don’t have money for a costume and you are all out of ideas. How about rocking two corn rows, some shades, your kicks, silver foil on your k9s and a little swag to channel your inner A$AP.
Your natural hair split down the middle with two fat, french braids is the start to this look. There are tons of rappers out there but only one A$AP and he loves his cornrows and plats – a definite signature style – individual plats for this particular look might give off a little too much of that Miss Celie aura, but it could work.
Just rock your boyfriend cut jeans a little low on the waist over a pair of boxers. A white tee under a flannel shirt or a vintage, embellished, 80s style sweater and your cleanest kicks finishes off the costume. You could rock Air Force Ones, Jordan’s or Vans – it’s really up to you because either are cool choices and A$AP approved wear. Still got your high school varsity jacket? That’s even better. Or how about your little brother’s jacket? Remember rappers have tight verses and tight clothes.
There’s nothing left really to this look but to put on your best poker face and learn a few verses. Now, that part will take a little more work, so to inspire you along, we thought we’d give you a head start so you can get to memorizing. Oh, and please, for the love of all the halloween gods, absolutely no pimp cups. Wrong rapper, wrong genre and just plain wrong.
