Kanye West is a true style icon and he stayed true to his fashion-forward disposition, and a few short years later he had the last laugh as men everywhere began copying his unique mix of retro, prep-school style and hip-hop swagger.
Equal parts preppy, retro hipster and ghetto fabulous, Kanye West’s savvy style is 100% cool.
His standby accessories include bow ties, original belt, big gold necklaces and unusual eyewear.
