Now it’s all about Versace, you copied my style… – Tupac Amaru Shakur
Celebrating the life and legacy of Hip Hop’s greatness, today marks Tupac Shakur’s 46th birthday. An iconic artist and impactful trendsetter, his influence not only evolved music, but fashion and culture. An undeniable eye for style would be an understatement. From Tupac’s staple bandana to a very 90’s tailored tuxedo, his forward sense of fashion is still prevalent in 2017.
In an era obsessed with street wear, Shakur serves as one major reference. Noted designers like Alexander Wang has nodded Pac’s style in several collections. Many current trends like baggy overalls, the studded nose ring, and snapbacks pay homage to the artist without even trying.
Take a look back on some of Pac’s most memorable fashion moments. The 90s nostalgia is real.
Happy Birthday Tupac. Check out the biopic of his legacy, All Eyez on Me, in theaters everywhere June 16.
