5 Tips To Own The Starboy Look

What are the steps to become a star in the music industry? Have an innovative and fresh musical concept, find a unique and unusual name to be identified, create your own personal look to inspire others. Well, to be fair, I don’t know if these are actually the steps anyone could follow to become the latest star in the music scene, but at least these are some of the main reasons why Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, rose to stardom. I’m not such a huge fan of R&B or pop music. I don’t even know much of his music in particular, but what I know is that he’s become a recognizable character, and perhaps one of the main reasons is his personal style, both in fashion and in his hair decisions. I mean, who wouldn’t remember the guy with the extreme and eccentric hairdo at every music event?

Less is always better

This is probably part of what has made him such an iconic person in today’s fashion and music scene. His characteristic hair style might not be that simple, but he’s maintained a very clean, effortless, and not at all exaggerated style. Generally just wearing a pair of black skinny jeans, a long shirt, nice sneakers, and a box jacket, he’s avoided all those over the top accessories so popular among musicians.

Set a unique style

Sometimes we want to try every single fashion trend out there, and it’s great to experiment with clothes to find something that fits us perfectly, but something The Weeknd has proved is that consistency can also be fashionable and iconic. He wears the aforementioned style at almost every public event. However, he’s always looking for nice and unique pieces that fit his personal style. If you’re one of those who gets comfortable with one particular type of fashion, you can easily follow his steps.

Use layers to create proportion

His style might be simple, but actually, his clothing selection is well-structured, making his outfits more interesting. One way he achieves this is by layering, but in a smart way. If you layer too much, you’ll look like Joey wearing all Chandler’s clothes in Friends. So it’s important to know which parts of your body you want to highlight and which don’t, so you can add or reduce layers on your outfit.

Make yourself approachable

I think one of the things that makes him such a charismatic character is his approachability, and the best way he achieves it is through fashion. He doesn’t wear any evidently luxurious garments like gold chains or other popular accessories. It’s not that his clothes aren’t fancy. I bet they cost thousands. Yet he gives an impression of simplicity that many can actually copy or be inspired by.

Be truthful to your own style

I think this is something I’ve pretty much summed up in the previous tips. His fashion styles are set and don't change that much. He’s found a style that suits him and, more importantly, that makes him recognizable. That sense of faith is what is leading him to become such an icon both in the music industry and the fashion world.
