While you were wearing sweatpants and a football jersey coated in gravy this Thanksgiving, Kanye West was sporting a wealthy caveman-meets-Mr. T ensemble at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. (Were you expecting something else?) Before you laugh, listen up–with all those holiday parties crowding your calendar in the next few weeks, deciding what to wear can be a bit overwhelming. But you can always look to Kanye for sartorial inspiration!
Try stepping out of your usual sequined dress/business casual box at that upcoming Christmakwanzakah shindig and take a cue from Kanye West. Here’s a rundown of everything you’ll need:
+ 1 pair of black pants — Easy. Everyone has a pair!
+ 1 gold lamé shirt — Shine like that tree-topper, people. Shine!
+ 500 gold chains — Give or take on that number, but once you get to “I’ll never get through airport security” status, you’re good to go.
+ 1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle headband — Kanye opted for black, but it is the season of lights, after all. Time to break out the BeDazzler.
+ 1 long fur vest with leather sleeves — I hope your grandma is a seamstress or you know Tina Knowles because otherwise you’re out of luck.
Despite the versatility of this Fred Flintstone-cum-Genie from “Aladdin” outfit, be careful where you don this ho-ho-holiday apparel. You might be able to rock it at your friend’s holiday house party, but try toning it down for your company holiday party. Or don’t? I guess nothing says “I deserve a raise” quite like a gold lamé tank top.
