Canadian rapper Drake has taken to Instagram to show his Christmas spirit. Pictured in a beautiful off-white, wool trench coat, the 30-year-old Toronto native looked stylish and casual posing beside a Christmas tree. The only accessory needed on the chic trench was the Louis Vuitton scarf that Drake had loosely hanging around his neck. Showing his Canadian roots, the rapper stood in front of a Canadian flag that was hung beside the Christmas tree, showing his love for his home country while in the Christmas mood.
Although he tried to spread some holiday spirit on his Instagram, the rapper is getting much more attention for another photo he posted. After attending Jennifer Lopez’s show in Vegas for a second time last week, the pair have been the subject of dating rumors, which are fueled even more by JLo’s selfie of the pair, which she captioned “#LoveHim.” Freshly single after splitting with Rihanna, Drake looked cozy with JLo, snuggling up to the singer with a large grin on his face. Lopez, also leaning in close to Drake, is giving a cute little smile to the camera as they posed for the photo. After the snap was uploaded to JLo’s Instagram feed, Drake was quick to also share the photo on his account. An unnamed source told TMZ the pair had been working on music and “spending a lot of time together.” Time will only tell if the pair are just good friends, or if we will see them become Hollywood’s new it couple.
Drake’s Best Outfit and Style
Drake’s fashion style has been on trend watcher’s radar ever since he made his way onto the rap scene in 2010. His fashion sense has always been one to keep an eye on when looking for the latest style. That being said, Drake is actually more of an anti-style icon. The rapper is known for leading the way when it comes to normcore inspired clothing. The term refers to unpretentious, normal looking clothing. In a time when other rappers on the scene are flaunting their flashy gold piped clothing, Drake has a refreshing style that anyone can take inspiration from. He wears clothing that any average guy can wear, and that makes him stand out from other performers.
His fashion in 2016 has stayed true to his easy-to-wear style, but the rapper seems to have added a few more polished pieces to his attire. Back in November this year, Drake finally won his first American Music Award and took to the stage in a beautifully tailored sleek suit and crisp white shirt, accessorized by a thick gold chain bracelet, gold chunky ring, and aviator style glasses. Drake was the leading nominee at the AMA Awards, winning favorite album—rap/hip-hop for Views. Drake’s AMA’s outfit showed the rapper can clean up nicely. We love this look, and hope to see the rapper polished up more often!
