5 Offbeat Ways To Achieve The Badass Desi Rapper Aesthetic

Sign in to follow this  


Ever since the 'Gully Boy' trailer dropped, we've been watching it on love as we love everything about it. 

Directed by Zoya Akhtar, starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin, the film seeks to capture the authenticity of hip hop in the streets of India, particularly, Mumbai.

From the trailer announcement on January 3rd to the actual trailer release, 'Gully Boy' has successfully shown Ranveer Singh's character, Naved Shaikh being brazenly comfortable in his street aesthetic which makes up for solid colours, basic silhouettes, crisp cotton kurtas, super-rad hoodies, frightening face masks and kohl. 

All of these make for markers of the hip hop scene in India.

But the best part about the 'Gully Boy' trailer is that it goes to show that you don't need glam outfits, fancy sneakers, high-street brands to make it big in the hip-hop scene. Sometimes, a white crisp shirt does it for you if you know your bars right. 

So, here's a definitive style break down of the 'Gully Boy' looks, because basic is clearly winning this year, so you can cop Ranveer Singh's looks easily.

1) The Striped Hoodie

Seen on Ranveer's Instagram first, this is the trademark poster hoodie. The most surprising thing about this hoodie is that it's the most basic hoodie there can be out there.

You could thrift one from the streets or get one from here

This is pretty close.

2) The Cool Pyjamas

A pair of pyjamas that you can lounge in while you work on your next bar set. These aren't your basic pyjamas. A pair of patterned Pj's that can even make a vest go with it well. It's always better to have groovy sets of nightwear than simple ones and these are easily accessible. 

This could pass off as something similar.

3) The Solid Hoodie

Aside from the signature striped hoodie, Ranveer Singh is seen in a lot of solid hoodies as well. We mean strong basic colours that scream 'we mean business'. 

Think jet black, charcoal grey, light grey, navy blue, olive green. Buy a plain hoodie in any of these colours and wear it in stride when you venture out in the streets like this one

4) The Kurta + Hoodie Look

Naved Shaikh is comfortable in his skin and you can see that from the way he wears his kurtas. From a tested jeans and kurta combination to jeans and hoodies, which look equally great on him. 

And who knew that mono-toning the look will only make it cooler. Take a look below. With a solid hoodie that you have at home, match a plain similar-coloured coloured kurta and you're sorted.

5) Trinkets

Let's talk about Naved's minimalist approach to accessories for a second. There are three things that he swears by: his kohl,

 the small metal pendant,

and that rad face mask.

However small, these three markers make a huge impact and form his true identity of a street hip hop artist. This only goes to show that you don't necessarily need a minimalist approach to accessories to make a statement. 

Disclaimer: We've only broken down these looks for you and shown possible sources from where you can cop Ranveer's looks, however, it's important to note that these pointers make for items that are easily available on the streets which are equally authentic.
