Tupac Shakur Inspired Fashion

A social activist through rap, a controversial figure by any means, with charges such as assault, and death by 4 gun shots in a drive by, but he still has an allure and wisdom in his lyrics. His fame and appeal still continue over 20 years after his death.

His music is an anthem of strength for the oppressed underdog, and his words, character and ideals aren’t the only thing that was legendary, his fashion sense was too.

A true fashion icon of the 90’s that’s legacy still holds weight in fashion circles, today.

So with the new Tupac movie “All Eyez on Me” the untold story, currently in cinemas, here’s a look at some fashion inspiration moments from both the movie and his life.

Thug Life

A thug life beanie, layered denim, and a cheeky smile, pair with some lyrical deliberation specs (seen below), and the swagger required to carry it all off.

The layered look is one you will see mirrored in several of the looks here, as it was a signature of the 90’s and specifically of the rap and R&B scenes.

It is still a look popular today; try pairing a chambray shirt with a basic or graphic tee and a blazer or military inspired hooded jacket.

Don’t forget these understated oval glasses.

Mad lyrical prowess optional.

Bandanna This

The Tupac bandanna if anything, is the signature piece, with it’s paisley print and vibrant tones.

As was his statement jewelry, think large, extravagant and gold, but still classic.

As long as you tie your bandanna correctly, go with your colour of choice.

We recommend red, black or white to match with most outfits, and be authentic to the vibe.

Don’t forget some classically statement specs, like the Armanis below.
