Friday, August 17, 2012 Guest Edit: Rapper’s Delight With Le Happy

During the late ’80s, rap music began taking over the scene and hip hop influences reigned supreme. The style was all about baseball caps, scarf-printed bomber jackets, baggy pants, Adidas track suits, pops of neon and heavy gold jewelry. Run DMC, Slick Rick, The Beastie Boys along with their fans served as inspiration for designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Isaac Mizrahi, who started incorporating streetwear and supersized jewelry in their collections.

Perhaps the most iconic piece embraced on the streets and the runway were the gold chains seen on everyone from Salt ‘n’ Pepa to supermodels in Chanel. Lately, I’ve been channeling the era by piling on chain necklaces with my favorite tanks, sheer mesh tops and printed t-shirts. Top off the look with a huge messy braid and red lips, turn on Licensed To Ill and you’re ready to roll.

    Great inspiration! Love this badass look. I channel this vibe by wearing one chunky golden earring with a leather jacket sometimes :)
