How to dress like Eminem

Updated July 20, 2017

Eminem is the Detroit -born, Oscar and multiple Grammy Award winning rapper, record producer, and actor. Having sold over seventy million albums worldwide, Eminem is one of the highest-selling rappers of all time and has established himself as a hip-hop icon. Since he is such a well known and revered, pop culture figure, many young men want to emulate his style. The following is a guide to help you dress like and embody Eminem's persona.

To achieve Eminem's look, first dye your hair platinum blond and make sure your hair is very short and closely cropped. If this is not an option for you to do to your real hair, purchase a similar wig.

Eminem has many tattoos all over his body, especially his upper body, and arms. If you already have many tattoos, especially tattoo sleeves, you are already set. For those of you who do not have any tattoos, you may want to get some, a lot, in fact. If this is too drastic of an option, you can purchase fake tattoos from costumes stores and online. Another option is to draw tattoos all over your arms with a black market. Make sure that you use a semi-permanent marker, as you do not want to stain your white tees.

Once you have dyed your hair and adequately tatted yourself up. You can move on to the wardrobe. To achieve Eminem's look, you can wear a variety of different things, or mix and match clothes, for several different looks. While the choice of top may change, always wear baggy, saggy trousers that reveal your underwear or boxers.

One option is to wear a ribbed white tank top or "wife beater" tank top and baggy jeans. Don't be afraid to let your Calvins show. Also put on athletic sneakers, preferably white Nike Air Force ones, but any colour and brand will do as long as they are clean.

You can change the look by wearing an oversized white T-shirt over the "wife-beater". You can change the look even further by putting on a sports team jersey like the Detroit Pistons basketball jersey over the white T-shirt.

After you have your wardrobe together, it is time to accessorise. You can achieve Eminem's swagger by wearing multiple large diamond chains and medallions around your neck. If you do not have or cannot afford the real thing, faux diamond jewellery like cubic zirconia will work too. Earrings are an Eminiem staple so it is important to have diamond studs in each ear. Again real diamonds are preferred and more authentic, but faux diamonds, will work.

Once you have the hair, wardrobe and accessorises in place, you are well on your way to looking like Eminiem. To achieve Eminem's swagger and embody him even further, grab your crotch regularly and make sure that your underwear/boxers are showing as you let your oversized, baggy trousers sag. Also try to maintain an indifferent look on your face at all times. The look you're going for is urban, with a dash of hip-hop culture.
