The Bad Bunny Guide to Pulling Off Head-to-Toe Leather
Bad Bunny is one of those stars that you’ll likely have seen across social media a lot recently. The musician hit the Coachella main stage as the Friday showstopper last month, then he made headlines for being one of the best-dressed men at the Met Gala, donning a tweed Jacquemus suit that bared his back for all to see. And most recently, it’s been confirmed that he’s dating Kendall Jenner. So yeah… you haven't seen anything yet.
With that kind of exposure comes the opportunity for plenty of outfit inspiration. The Puerto Rican pop star has consistently pulled off some risqué outfits with the confidence of a man who sticks his middle finger up to the gatekeepers of the English-speaking music world. He’s just wearing what he wants and making hits as he wants—the type of 'fuck it' energy we could all get on board with from time to time.
The most streamed artist in the world for three years running. If there’s one thing you can expect from the 29-year-old, is that he’s going to wear pieces that grab your attention.

What’s he wearing?
A new entry into the Out-There Outfits oeuvre, Bad Bunny was seen in in head-to-toe leather—with extra layers of antiperspirant, hopefully. Accessories came in the form of Balenciaga chunky Trooper boots, orange-tined frames and a New Era baseball cap turned back to front.
How do I recreate it?
Pull on some leather flares, a leather overshirt and you’re good to go. While striking in nature, this ‘fit can be replicated pretty easily if you already like a lot of leather in your wardrobe rotation. If you need to stock up, look to Officine Générale or Theory for jackets and Fear of God or Manaaki for bottoms.

Mistakes to avoid?
Avoid brash colours and go for monochromatic leather pieces; this will make the look a little less attention-grabbing. Do it like Bunny and keep accessories to a minimum and of the same hue.
