happy birthday Donald Glover! The 34 year-old rapper, screenwriter and actor has had quite the year, taking home two Emmys and making history as the first Black person to win the best directing-comedy award. Glover also hinted at a possible joint album with Chance The Rapper and announced he was expecting baby number two this year. Also making a big splash in 2017 when it came to style, Childish Gambino showed men how to master the art of rocking dirty sneaks and taking risks on the red carpet, proving without a shadow of a doubt that Dads can still get ‘fits off.
As we celebrate his born-day, here are some must-have style tips we can all learn from Donald Glover.
1. Embrace Casual Accents
Dress down a double-breasted suit by swapping a tie and traditional button-up for a classic polo or a solid tee.
2. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously
Some red carpets call for traditional formalwear, while others are more laid-back. For the latter, rock your favorite childhood merch with relaxed separates for a playful look.
3. Make A Statement With Outerwear
Sometimes your jacket is the fit, bro. Don’t over think it! Pair with your favorite kicks, a bold t-shirt and jeans.
4. Do Rock Prints
Don’t get lost in a slew of boring black tuxedos at a black-tie event. Rock a printed blazer for a dope update on a classic silhouette.
5. Try Bold Color
Yes, you can wear all-over purple without looking like Barney. Just opt for a streamlined silhouette and minimal accessories.
6. Dress Like the Person You Wish to Be
Whether yachting in the South of France or taking a water taxi to Staten Island, always remember to dress like the true boss that you are.
