Get The Look: The Weeknd (AMAs Edition)

Posted on November 22, 2016

Always wanted to look like a MF Starboy?! We got you covered fam. The Weeknd may have cut his iconic hair (which may actually help our situation, cause it would take years to grow that out) but his signature black on black style is something many of us can achieve fairly easily. For this edition of Get The Look, we’re going to be deep diving into how you can pull off The Weeknd’s American Music Award performance look! Here’s what we’re going for:


Let’s start with the basic black uniform.

Alright, so all that’s left to do is find yourself a bedazzled leather jacket similar to The Weeknd’s. This is obviously the most important piece to completing the look as it stands out from the black uniform. Although we searched far and wide across the internet for the benefit of you all, we unfortunately came up short. Tbh, he’s probably wearing some high-fashion super-designer jacket that most of us probably wouldn’t want to throw hundreds of dollars on … SO we’ve come up with a fool-proof DIY version that will save you money and still look fab (hopefully). LOL hear us out.

First what you wanna do is purchase a relatively cheap faux leather jacket with a collar such as this one:

Faux Leather Trucker Jacket – $29.99 (U.S. Polo Assn.)

Currently, there’s a sale on for these Jackets where if you buy 2, you get the 3rd for free, so you can either get 3 separate looks, or share with your friends!

Next step in the process is get yourself some sticky silver Rhinestones and GO TO TOWN on your jacket! You can make yours look identical to The Weeknd’s or even come up with your own designs. We advise trying these puppies out:

Darice® Rhinestone Stickers, Crystal 3mm – $2.49 (Michaels)

And wallah! Here you have perfectly similar Starboy jacket for under forty dollars. Nobody will know the difference *wink wink*

We’re counting down the days until The Weeknd drops his album (Nov. 25), but in the meantime, feel free to listen to his current available singles below.
