While you were wearing sweatpants and a football jersey coated in gravy this Thanksgiving, Kanye West was sporting a wealthy caveman-meets-Mr. T ensemble at the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. (Were you expecting something else?) Before you laugh, listen up--with all those holiday parties crowding your calendar in the next few weeks, deciding what to wear can be a bit overwhelming. But you can always look to Kanye for sartorial inspiration!
Try stepping out of your usual sequined dress/business casual box at that upcoming Christmakwanzakah shindig and take a cue from Kanye West. Here's a rundown of everything you'll need:
+ 1 pair of black pants -- Easy. Everyone has a pair!
+ 1 gold lamé shirt -- Shine like that tree-topper, people. Shine!
+ 500 gold chains -- Give or take on that number, but once you get to "I'll never get through airport security" status, you're good to go.
+ 1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle headband -- Kanye opted for black, but it is the season of lights, after all. Time to break out the BeDazzler.
+ 1 long fur vest with leather sleeves -- I hope your grandma is a seamstress or you know Tina Knowles because otherwise you're out of luck.
Despite the versatility of this Fred Flintstone-cum-Genie from "Aladdin" outfit, be careful where you don this ho-ho-holiday apparel. You might be able to rock it at your friend's holiday house party, but try toning it down for your company holiday party. Or don't? I guess nothing says "I deserve a raise" quite like a gold lamé tank top.
