Whether you believe it or not, celebrities are the true barometer of style as the year goes on. If athletes, musicians or actors experiment with their wardrobes and ascend to stylish new heights, there’s a strong chance that the general public will follow suit. 2016 gave us a year jam packed with fashion surprises in the menswear world. The five men on this represent fashion’s brightest and boldest stars.
2016 has been ASAP Rocky’s biggest year in fashion yet! From his collaboration with Guess Jeans, to being named the first black face of Dior Homme, Rocky has risen to the leader of the pack in 2016.
This year has brought on many great accomplishments for Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy of Rae Sremmurd. They released their sophomore album SremmLife 2, and their single “Black Beatles” became the theme song to the social media craze, the Mannequin Challenge, and resulted in them getting their first #1 single. The brothers’ style has also sky rocketed. The boys now rock Gucci ski goggles and Gucci pink fur coats even in the summer time.
Jaden Smith cemented his place as high fashion’s prince when he became of face of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2016 campaign at the beginning of the year. Since then, Jaden has taken us on rollercoaster ride with his fashion; from sporting graphic tees and bomber jackets skateboarding in L.A. to donning a beautiful blouse on the cover of NYLON Magazine.
Nick Jonas rarely, if ever, misses when it comes to finding the perfect fit for any occasion. From wearing a black and white Louis Vuitton SS17 look at the 2016 VMAs to casually walking the street in a green suede biker jacket, Jonas is defiantly fashion’s most reliable guy.
Just being released from jail this past May, Gucci Mane has already released two albums (Everybody’s Looking and Woptopber). Gucci also came out with a new body and killer wardrobe.
