#KontrolApproved: Top Men of Style for 2017

Cam Newton at Coachella

Cam Newton

Male rompers took the internet by storm earlier this year when a startup company decided to raise money to produce their own version called Romphim. Though rompers for men was already a fashion item that had been made by various designers and is actually the brother to male jumpsuits, a lot of people thought that this was a joke. Fortunately, Cam Newton decided to wear his floral print romper to Coachella 2017 and showed all the guys how it’s really done. The trend became a very hot subject this year in fashion, so it’s to see that Cam wasn’t scared to wear what others wouldn’t.

Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith is considered to be the most outgoing and forward thinking young adult when it comes to style. This year he transitioned from oversized gear, hoodies, and dreadlocks to cutting off his hair, dying it blonde, and rocking a grill. He frequently goes in between streetwear and formal wear depending on the occasion. However, his affinity for fashion has no boundaries and that’s what we love about him.

FAKE Sisqo

During New York Fashion Week, a guy that we’ll only refer to as “FAKE” Sisqo decided to crash a lot of runway shows and events pretending to be the singer. Surprisingly he was able to fool a lot of people (mostly a lot of white people). However, his style definitely didn’t go unnoticed. Homeboy was dressing even better than the real Sisqo and that says a lot. He took “fake it til you make it” to a different level.

Jay Ellis

Insecure looks good on our guy Jay Ellis. He’s in a totally different space than he was when he starred in The Game. His swag is on 100! Dude has a new hairstyle that he rocks on and off the screen. His suit & tie game is on fire. Not too mention, role in the HBO hit series is one of the most beloved characters on the show; aside from Molly played by Yvonne Orji. Whoever is his stylist needs a raise, because every interview that he’s done this year was best dressed worthy.

Kofi Siriboe

We’ve given Kofi Siriboe a lot of praise for his style this year. The sexy Queen Sugar star upgraded from baggy to tailored and fitted clothing. He’s gone from showing off his skin a lot to letting the prints and colors of his outfits do the talking. Not to mention he’s tapped into his  Ghanaian roots to bring us a lot of Afro-Euro style.
