Style Empire: The Hit Show Serves Fashion
As 14.33 million viewers tuned into Fox’s hit television show Empire, the new hip-hop drama secured itself a spot in the media stream of pop culture. The entertaining hit not only provides Dynasty comparable drama for today’s generation, but an endless amount of style. The Lyon family plays host to a plethora of personalities and with each person comes their own distinct style.
The leader of his family, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) represents an old-school style, dressing in sharp suiting featuring a splash of color. Reflective of his inner demons, the oldest son, Andre Lyon (Trai Byers) is tightly strung and kept in impeccably tailored suits and dress shirts.
Jamal Lyon: Get the Look
The youngest son, Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray) plays the impulsive youth. Representing the flashier fashions of Hip-Hop, mimicking the styles of artists such as Trey Songz, Hakeem wears a lot of graphic t-shirts and leather pieces, paired with modern proportions and trendy items such as joggers. The laid-back personality of the brothers, Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) has simple everyday style, shown with relaxed pieces such as plain t-shirts and denim jeans featuring a slim fit. However, Jamal doesn’t shy away from accessorizing with hats that include fedoras and newsboy caps.
