In a Kaleidoscopic Kapital Sweater, Offset Channels Another Effortlessly Cool MC

Welcome to Heat Check, a (semi)regular dose of much-needed style inspiration culled from the very best celebrity fit pics around.

The Migos' influence on the culture has been bubbling up for a minute now. The Atlanta rap trio famous for popularizing a staccato triplet flow pervasive in Top 100 charts and playlists across the country have served as a steadfast source of inspiration for a generation of young rappers, and in the absence of any forthcoming album, fans of the group have had to make do following their exploits on the 'gram. And oh, what a follow it is.

The trio have always been unabashedly exuberant dressers (see any of their many, many delightfully unrestrained red carpet appearances for further proof), but lately they've been getting off some particularly big fits, even by their usual standards. Case in point: Earlier this week, Offset posted a casual fit pic rocking an absolutely bonkers, kaleidoscopic, Coogi-like sweater from the beloved cult label Kapital (that happens to recall another notable rapper's penchant for the style) and complementing, not-so-subtly flared denim in a shade of burnt orange reminiscent of homemade marmalade. (I'd like to imagine that the Migos, like so many of us, have a tacit understanding among their boys that when one of them pulls up in a fit this big, they don't even have to ask to be flicked up on the spot.)

Like any of his signature bars, Offset's fit does a lot with a little. At the end of the day, he's just wearing a sweater and jeans. But taken in aggregate—including the Yankees hat and the AF1s (not to mention the neck truly flooded in I-don't-want-to-think-about-how-many-dollars'-worth of ice)—his outfit is one for the books. The sweater or the jeans alone would be more than enough to warrant mentioning, but the color-coordination on display here takes this fit to expert-level swerve territory.

To paraphrase the man himself: I'd thank god too if I woke up in a fit this good.
