Where Is Chance The Rapper's Sweater From? A Look at The Voice Coach's Style
An oversized black-and-white sweater worn by newbie The Voice coach Chance The Rapper is getting plenty of attention. Here's where you can find the sweater yourself — plus, the rapper's other attention-getting style choices over the years.
A rookie Coach on Season 23 of The Voice is getting attention not just for his talent and coaching abilities, but for his fashion: Everyone is buzzing over Chance The Rapper’s oversized black-and-white crochet hoodie.
If you want to get your hands on it, it won’t come cheap. The comfy sweater retails on Nahmias for $1,000. No surprise since it’s made in Italy and is comprised of wool and alpaca — guaranteeing lux comfort.
Chance The Rapper's stylish crochet sweater on The Voice is just one in a long line of fashion moments. He has been making headlines about his style for years, beginning with his famous “3” hat. He told GQ he began wearing hats when he was a teenager and donning a hat meant it would be confiscated at school, so it became a form of rebellion.
The “3” symbol has to do with his third mixtape, Coloring Book, which had over 57 million streams in its first week through Apple Music.
“I’ve rationalized it to myself that it stands for the third mixtape, the holy trinity, and the three-pronged family of myself, my daughter, and my girl," he said to GQ.
Chance is also known to frequently rock a good sweater, so it makes sense he’d keep up the fashion on The Voice. He got buzz for wearing this Ralph Lauren Polo Bear wool sweater on The Late Show, and also chose a cozy sweater on a recent The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon appearance. There are even Reddit threads dedicated to figuring out where Chance’s sweaters are from.
Chance The Rapper’s fashion was noticed by The New York Times style section critics back in 2017, with the headline: "Overalls and the Everyday Elegance of Chance The Rapper." He even appeared on Saturday Night Live in crayon-red overalls by the Chicago designer Sheila Rashid.
“A guy in overalls is a statement," Sasha Jenkins, the director of Fresh Dressed, a 2015 documentary about the evolution of hip-hop style, told The New York Times. Jenkins suggested the overalls were the rapper’s way of connecting to his fans.
“It’s not about trying to count how many carats are in someone’s crucifix pendant,” Jenkins continued. “It’s like when Run-D.M.C. came along and wore the stuff that everyday people wore in the ’hood. The energy of that look had real connectivity to the community.”
