FEBRUARY 2017'S MOST STYLISH VIDS
By Matt Glazebrook, March 3, 2017
A Boogie & Don Q – Bag On Me
As his name suggests, A Boogie With Da Hoodie loves a hooded top. So much so, he wears three in one go in his new, Grand Theft Auto-themed video — a classic gray sports hoodie, a plaid, shearling-lined hoodie over that, and a hooded Stone Island coat over the top of that. Not content with this level of extreme hoodie action, he pops up later in a neon green hooded sweatshirt layered under a (remarkably hood-free) Off-White bomber jacket. Mission (to make us add several new hoodies to our saved items) passed.
Big Baby D.R.A.M. – Cute
Rae Sremmurd – Swang
As fun as the golf chic is in the video for Rae Sremmurd's latest off-kilter banger, it's around the 2:10 mark that things get really sartorially interesting. As the sun sets, and the mist rolls in, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi ditch their polo shirts for some strong 19th-hole steez — specifically, a brilliant red, white and blue striped panther-print Gucci sweater and a similarly-hued vest.
Stormzy – Big For Your Boots
You get a lot of fashion information about Stormzy in his comeback single: he doesn't own any Tom Ford; he doesn't have a Moncler coat in his wardrobe either; he wears size 12 shoes, but will do the road in his socks if necessary. The video, meanwhile, is all about the Wicked Skengman's love for a one-tone outfit — all-black hoodie and gilet steez, all-white tee and joggers, and, best of all, the all-tan tracksuit he wears while intimidating some hooligan-types via the power of dad dancing.
The Weeknd – Reminder
Young Thug – Safe
Not much happens in Young Thug's latest audio-visual jam, but what does happen (Thugger mooching about in a corridor with a big stack of — for some reason — $20 bills) happens in some really good clothes. Specifically, a lovely varsity-style sweater with a big "M" on it, and a highly coppable customized denim jacket with our hero's name emblazoned on the back.
