The Drip is Highsnobiety’s latest series, taking a deep-dive look at celebrities and their jawnz. Every other day, we highlight a notable figure from our world and run the rule over whether their outfit is a hit or miss. Do you agree or disagree with our appraisal? Let us know below.

Who: Syd

The outfit she’s wearing: Syd is decked out head to toe in Valentino, with the label’s graphic cotton tee, belted pants, and VLTN side bag. On her feet, Syd’s gone with the brand’s 30mm embroidered high-top sneakers.

Location: Valentino SS19 at Paris Fashion Week 2018

Why it works: Syd’s easygoing style reflects her West Coast upbringing: loose tees, box pants, and chill vibes. Here, she’s revamped her usual streetwear get-up with a few luxury items, elevating her look with the VLTN leather side bag.

Editor’s Notes: Fashion Week can often err towards the outlandish, but in Syd’s case, she keeps things simple but classy with a luxury look that parallels her effortless everyday style. Syd’s go-to look (away from Fashion Week photographers) is all about comfort. From comfortable-fitting tees with splashes of color to loose-hip pants, the Californian singer has always drifted toward relaxed, accessible clothing.

High fashion houses have co-opted the side bag trend, with Louis VuittonGucci, and Rick Owens all jumping on the bandwagon.

Of course, styling is all about balance, and Syd’s black tailored pants complement her overall look. They’re relaxed, offering a slightly loose fit, and feature a neat belt-loop system, highlighting Valentino’s attention to detail. Up top, the Valentino graphic T-shirt, which plays on motel signs, is a strong alternative to a classic white tee, with that extra dash of color and script that makes a ’fit stand out.

On foot, Syd opts for a pair of Valentino embroidered high-tops with a cut-out sock upper — a welcome change for those who want something a little more interesting than the Balenciaga Speed Runner.

Overall, Syd reminds us that luxury drops don’t have to be complicated or extravagant.

Get the look: For those looking to cop, MR PORTER has the hookup on Syd’s motel T-shirt, Luisaviaroma has you covered for the embroidered high-tops, and Neiman Marcus has the side bag.

Previously on The Drip, Rihanna rocked her custom Dior tote bag with a cozy AF streetwear look.
