Rae Sremmurd Just Claimed Their Title as Fashion Icons

Style Icons, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi held nothing back at the 2018 iHeart Festival in Las Vegas. The Two brothers from Tupelo, Mississippi have truly made a name for themselves in both the music and fashion industry (anytime Vogue is writing about your fashion, guarantee you have style).
Swae Lee walked out onto the stage with a twist to a simple classic jean jacket. Parts of his arms and his entire back area were cut out in a ripped fashion look to display a sheer cheetah print fabric. Of course, the Calvin Klein briefs were on display underneath the gold lined jeans.
Slim Jxmmi rocked his own classic southern style fashion by donning a colorful Torino print button up. However, it wasn't what was on his body that was so eye-catching as his head. Slim came out rocking a diamond-encrusted watch headband.
None of us were ready for that level of fashion.
The two brothers, of course, didn't keep their shirts on long. They instead ditched their shirts and went for their usual performance look - jeans, jewelry, and a shirtless bod.
We're here for it.
Lately, Swae has implemented a classic western wear look into his usual high-end streetwear fashion resulting in a fresh and swaggy style. We’ve seen this same nostalgic look make a resurgence this year including faded fringed jackets and the unmissable ruffle trimmed prairie dresses.
In an Instagram photo posted earlier this summer, Lee shows off a sleek outfit with a relaxed action figure type stance. The young rapper dons a tiger striped button down with double gold chains and (you guessed it!) cowboy boots. He threw a little LL Cool J flair on the look by tucking one of his pant legs into the boot. Subtle yet bold.
In the post, Swae captioned the shot with “Chasing Money like an old westerner.”
The true sign of a fashion icon is a risk taker. Swae is known to don classic looks with a revamped twist. The fashion icon can give even the simplest outfit an epic rockstar look. In the Instagram post below, he rocks a matching two-piece jacket and pants with featured Calvin Klein boxers and the classic two chain staple. Of course, Swae was full abs with it too.
We’ve got to give credit where credit is due. These two brothers have created their own unique style frequently mimicked. Go Rae!
