Travis Scott (or Travi$ Scott if your prefer) has easily become one of the world's best-dressed stars, standing alongside rappers like ASAP Rocky and Kanye West. He is a streetwear stalwart, wearing key pieces alongside high fashion brands like Louis Vuitton and Supreme. Here we guide you on how to achieve his look on a more affordable budget. Just read on.
Travis Scott, or Jacques Webster, Jr, is making waves across the world, not just thanks to his musical talent (he has just broken a record by playing Goosebumps 14 times in a row and Mamacita is a massive hit), but also as a result of his unique fashion sense. He has become a champion at mixing high end catwalk pieces from the likes of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Vetements (he does have a track called High Fashion after all) with streetwear pieces from brands like Fear Of God and Supreme.
Friend of Jonathon Anderson, front row regular, sometimes model (he walked for Rihanna's Puma Fenty line) and part-time designer, he is a man whose style you should want to emulate. Best thing about his laid-back look though is that you can achieve it, even if you're on a budget.
Travis Scott's Joggers
It's fair to say that Travis Scott's go-to bottoms are a pair of trusty joggers. Whether a pair by Vetements or Gosha Rubchinskiy, you can guarantee that he'll be wearing them. Joggers can be styles with absolutely anything, especially as menswear becomes a whole lot more relaxed and sports luxe becomes acceptable.
Even on the catwalks, where once before you'd find it hard to find a pair of joggers, all the big names from Gucci to Dior Homme are putting them out there. They suit everyone, although we wouldn't quite advise wearing them to work if everyone else is in a suit, and you can literally pair them with anything.
Travis Scott's Double Denim
As well as mixing up his pieces, Travis Scott also has a keen eye for matching his outfits. This is notably obvious when he wears denim, which he likes to pair together. Keeping it simple by matching the same coloured denim, Scott often pairs denim shirts and jackets with standard jeans. Keeping things laid back as ever, he'll wear a T-shirt and pair of trainers to finish off his look - of course finished off with a bundle of signature chaos round his neck.
Double denim may seem like a daunting idea, especially as it was so popular in the Nineties and stills has negative connotations attached to it - remember when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore matching double denim outfits? Either way, double denim is back and Travis Scott is a champion at making it look cool and not too try hard. Follow his lead and stick to two items of denim (preferably jeans and either a jacket or shirt) and match with low key shades and tones, like black or neutral greys.
Travis Scott's Camo
Travis Scott is a massive fan of camo. Whether he's just sporting a Vetements camouflage jacket or he's gone the whole hog and has covered his face in a camo mask, it's undeniable that it's one of his favourite looks. He even teamed up with Maharishi to create a 'Year Of The Rodeo' tour jacket and trousers which were, you guessed it, in a camo design. He also collaborated with Been Trill on a 'La Flame' tee which came in a forest-camp inspired print.
Scott does camo best when he chooses one item and leaves the rest of his outfit muted. This allows the camo to do the talking and make a statement, without a clash of patterns and prints. He also likes to play around with green shades, pairing camo with olive and moss hoodies and sweatshirts.
Travis Scott's Oversized Outerwear
If there's one thing that finishes off an outfit it's what jacket you choose. Travis Scott tends to go for oversized and baggy outerwear - most likely a few sizes too big. This is also achievable through buying into Vetements and Balenciaga, which Travis Scott does. Oversized outerwear is a massive trend in menswear (and womenswear at that) at the moment thanks to Vetements founder and Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia who loves to put out hanging, off the shoulder, oversized jackets.
To wear an anti-fit or oversized jacket is a pretty easy feat. Slim and tailored had always been the go-to for impeccable style, but in recent years, thanks to people like Gvasalia and Kanye West, oversized and OTT is now the look that everyone wants. It worked in the Nineties and it's working again now. Oversized jackets sit alongside oversized knitwear and even trousers have been given the baggy treatment. To easy yourself in though, we suggest starting with a slightly oversized jacket, keeping everything else more streamlined so as to not look like you're wearing your larger brother's old hand-me-downs.
Remember though that it is a balancing act between what is loose and what is over-the-top baggy. It is easy to just buy the next size up but if it looks too big it will most likely look pretty stupid. You need to find a jacket that is oversized, but still fits in the right places. That said, there are a lot out there on the market that have been created with this in mind so it'll just be a case of checking what's on offer.
Travis Scott's Hoodies
As a streetwear fan, Travis Scott is rarely seen not in a hoodie. His favourite brand for the once-upon-a-time frowned upon item is Supreme and his collection appears to be pretty impressive. He tends to pair his hoodies with a pair of joggers (usually Gucci), but has also been spotted wearing one with a pair of jeans.
A hoodie is a staple item now and has been elevated to the reams of high fashion, whereas before it was a looked-down-upon piece of clothing. Now you'll see them on the catwalks of Louis Vuitton, Dior Homme and Gucci. When it comes to wearing a hoodie, we advise that you wear one with a smarter pair of jeans or trousers and not a pair of matching joggers - you don't want to look too underdressed.
Travis Scott's Pink Jacket
If there's a standout item in Travis Scott's wardrobe, it's his L'Wren Scott pink shearling jacket. Pink is having a moment in menswear (we hope it doesn't go anywhere anytime soon). Travis Scoot is a fan and we can see why - he is known to wear a dusty pink bomber as well as this L'Wren Scott number. If you're going to go for a pink addition to your wardrobe then we suggest keeping it simple and only going for one statement pink piece like a pink hoodie or pink T-shirt, just as Scott does.
How to Get Travis Scott's Style
- Invest in an oversized coat and wear loosely off your shoulders
- Grab yourself a statement pink jacket - but remember to wear it simply
- Joggers should be your go-to for the day (perhaps not in the office) and pair with oversized knitwear and jackets
- Streetwear inspired items mixed with less loud pieces is a winning look - Travis Scott loves to team high end brand likes Louis Vuitton and Gucci with streetwear favourites Supreme and Vlone
On That Note
It's safe to say that Travis Scott is one of the best-dressed men in the limelight right now. It apparently works for Kylie Jenner, who he is supposedly dating, and it more than works for us. A perfect blend of laid-back streetwear and high end classic pieces makes his style one of the most sought after.
