Artists Rock the Grammys This Year in Cool and Casual Menswear

The recent 2023 Grammys witnessed the vast ensemble of the planet’s most-listened, most-sold, and most-streamed artists on stage on Music’s Biggest Night, and most of the men were looking dapper in, well, casuals! While there was a pair of casual washed jeans for every tailored suit, Dodgers caps and snapback hats had their moments too! The staunchly normal menswear surely set the tone of the star-studded night.

The Normcore Attires

Even big-ticket award shows like Grammys are no longer immune to the trend of normcore. Harry Styles, the Album of the Year winner, hit the carpet in his recent-staple gender-fluid clothing – a harlequin-print jumpsuit with a plunging neckline. Later during mid-show, he changed into a relatively relaxed cropped tux jacket from Gucci and tan trousers. Bad Bunny, the winner of the Best Musica Urbana Album, opened the broadcast by leading a procession of bomba y plena dancers in colorful skirts. He himself donned a plain white T-shirt paired with hip-bone-high-rise jeans, no belt, a snapback hat placed backward, and white tennis shoes. To accept his award, later, he changed into a black suit but didn’t forget to tuck his curls underneath a dark green LA Dodgers fitted cap, also placed backward!

The Quiet Luxury

This is another route the celebs took to prevail normcore at the Grammys. Omar Apollo, Best New Artist nominee, appeared in an open leather blazer worn over an unbuttoned striped shirt over a white T-shirt. A pair of hefty black shoes and light blue jeans completed his relaxed look, which was highly luxurious, only if you know to look at the brand tickets! Apollo’s luxe outfit was head-to-toe Bottega Veneta, with the jeans and the tee made of printed leather. GloRilla collaborator Hitkidd slayed on the red carpet in his near-cosplay rendition of normcore. His cool outfit included a tan jacket over a white collared shirt, blue jeans, a red striped tie, and a white trucker cap.
