He won GQ’s Best Dressed Man in 2012, amazed the stylish streets at London Collections: Men 2013 and demonstrated a sophisticated style throughout the year. Recognised for his style and music and now become one of the UK’s most influential rappers, we at PAUSE are proud to reward Tinie Tempah as the Best Dressed Man of 2013. Tinie showed us all consistency, dapper styles with a simplistic twist. Dressed to his personality, in his various sharp humble suits, Tinie has shown us that you don’t have to try too hard. He has kept it simple and presented his looks so effortlessly at every event he appeared in 2013.
In January 2013 he stormed into the men’s fashion scene mastering all suits from many designers; with a colour block red suit at LCM, it blew us all away. He walked in and put all stars to shame, Tinie wore a smart Paul Smith’s suit that caught everyone’s eyes. He finished the look with a Christian Louboutin shoe, legend.
Another appearance in January was the silver shiny suit at the Topman AW13 show. Dressed in a Dolce & Gabanna Martini suit, he shined in style at front row. Yet another simple style from Mr Tinie.
Tinie also attended the Margaret Howell show with yet another simple, but very simple look. He came relaxed, and most important he came as himself. Tinie expressed a down-to-earth suit with a pair of white monochrome vans which contrasted with his blue suit, effortlessly.
Later down the line Tinie collaborated with Reggie Yates on a ‘Style Pit Stop’ Mercedes Benz documentary-style series. He dressed in urban-contemporary style, with a camel coat, camo shirt, grey jeans and white converses. He also topped his look with a Burberry man bag which blended into his trendy twisted look.
One of his last fashion show appearances became a style shocker at the London Fashion Week, Burberry Prorsum’s SS14 show. Tinie yet came again with his individual English look but demonstrated a two-toned use of colour. He wore a blue suit with a pop of attention grabbing red. This look definitely manifests a sense of confidence, and we can see that through his legendary specs.
One of the last, and the best, was when he got dressed in all everything Burberry. Powerfully dressed head-to-toe in an iconic British look, Tinie inspired many of his fans, our readers and even people who don’t dress so dapper. Tinie has been a free-spirited style icon for many, and for us too!
We look forward to seeing what Tinie Tempah will bring in 2014, with London Collections: Men next week, stay up to date with us to see exclusive styles and of course, what Tinie Tempah will show us all this year.
