“After tonight, don’t leave your girl ‘round me, true playa for real, ask my homie Pharrell.” Do you remember where you were when those lyrics fell on your ears? I do! Hartsville, SC, 2001 at our local skating rink. The man to make that magical moment for me was none other than the amazing Usher Raymond IV! This revolutionary and timeless R&B star has been stealing your girlfriend’s, your wife’s, your grandmother’s and probably your boyfriend’s draws since 1993. Yesterday, Usher was finally given his Hollywood Star. In our opinion, it’s WAAAYYYY overdue. With his top charting singles, record-shattering albums and undeniably one of a kind style, Usher is a genuine superstar. That’s why we’re dedicating this blog post to all the trending looks and styles Usher has created and you’ve probably attempted to wear. From “My Way” styles to that dope bomber in “No Limit” music video, we’ve got you covered.
Circa 2001. Knitted skully, white tank top, and mixed brown leather jacket; Usher made that escalator look too cool with his “take your girl at the mall” look.
Circa 2016. Indigo Bomber Jacket, Gold wide framed glasses, tassel charm necklace, gaudy gold rings and solid black top and bottoms underneath. Usher maybe be 35 but is still inspired by the kids that stay up to trend.
Circa 2004. Denim Atlanta Braves Fitted Cap, White blazer, Light blue striped button up, white tee, jeans, and crisp white Air Force 1. Can’t forget about that iconic U chain. For the longest, you couldn’t find any grown man that wasn’t wearing this exact same outfit to the club, to the grocery store, even to the bus stop. This is probably his most influential look to date. I’m sure you’ll find someone still wearing it.
Usher has given great music, trends, and styles to pop culture that can consider some of the greatest looks and sounds in history. Again, we congratulate Usher on his Hollywood Star once again!

Take notes from the master of flavor and see how you can use his style to create your own. As always, stay fly trendsetters!
