yga's Style in "Taste"
Despite the less than encouraging critical reception his last album Kyoto received, Compton native Tyga managed to dominate the charts all throughout summer 2018, in no small part thanks to his hit single Taste.
While his full albums have so far failed to catch the attention, when Tyga jumps on a single it’s always going to be an entertaining one, and key to his entertainment is his ability to showcase every over the top and luxurious aspect of his Hollywood lifestyle.
The video for Taste follows Tyga’s recipe basically step by step: plenty of naked girls, expensive cars, luxury clothing, and a pool party on the Hills. Plus, it features guest appearances not only from his co-sign on this single, Migos’ own Offset, but also hip hop icons Wiz Khalifa and 2 Chainz. With these premises, we’re definitely in for a treat fashion-wise.
Outfits from the Music Video
0:02 - Tyga is setting the mood for the video, showing off a pair of highly coveted Chanel sneakers ($1,800). A pool party in the Hills is the perfect chance to pull out the Hawaiian shirt. The one worn by Tyga resembles this one ($363.98) by Paul Smith. Also a definite must have for pool parties, Tyga sports a pair of red shorts. Go a couple sizes bigger for his oversized look!
Plaid Flannel Shirt
0:15 - The plaid flannel shirt ($19.99) is certainly among the few items that never go out of season, and as Tyga demonstrates here, it looks even better when paired with a sports car.
Classic Kobe Bryant Jersey
0:31 - Tyga now paying homage to his hometown, rocking the classic Kobe jersey ($110) from his #8 days.
Shorts & Revenge X Storm "Flame" Sneakers
Short Sleeved Shirt
1:06 - More short sleeved shirts, make sure to stock up on them for the summertime! The one in this shot can be found here ($42.42)
1:21 - It’s time for Offset, and he shows up in this pair of iconic Gucci sunglasses ($620).
Leather Jacket & Pants with Black Tee
Gucci Logo Hoodie
2:32 - More luxury from Tyga, now wearing the classic Gucci logo hoodie ($1,114.69).
Nike Air Jordan 1
3:42 - One last major spot from this video, with Tyga now roller skating in a pair of Air Jordan 1 “Top 3” ($350.33). Over the top.
While Tyga and Offset did pull out a good number of items for this video, from a style point of view it does not come across as very surprising. The Tyga we’ve come to know over the years is exactly the one shown in this video: always wearing the freshest in-season clothes, and the more logos the better.
Personally, Offset wins it when it comes to pulling off the most interesting outfit in this one, with his full leather look which seems to be growing more and more popular across the hip hop scene as we speak.
Replicating the two rappers’ styles may not be the easiest for everyone: as they rely so heavily on branding, and wear the most expensive brands at the same time, fans of the duo may be disappointed when they find out the price tags on some of these pieces. Nonetheless, the video has certainly plenty of eyecandy for the hypebeasts out there!
