These past months, American rapper Ice Spice has become one of the most prominent rising artists on the Billboard Hot100 list. It was in the last summer that her single, “Munch (Feelin’ U),” took over Tiktok, catapulting her towards collaborations with famous artists and enormous success. These collaborations included her performing with famous female rapper Nicki Minaj and modeling for Beyoncé’s latest Ivy Park x Adidas “DISCOVER YOUR PARK” collection.
Alongside her artistic fame, she has become a fashion icon on Instagram. She is known for dressing in a Gen Z-esque style, also known as Y2K fashion, which comprises a mix of streetwear and other pieces that define the early 2000s. Alongside her signature orange curls, she often stands out from the crowd— making her a great choice to take style inspiration from. If you’re interested in emulating Ice Spice’s looks, here are some features you should consider adding to your style collection.
Spice’s afro is one of her most well-defining features, so, unsurprisingly, more people are adopting a similar style. However, styling curly hair can be tricky as it can easily dry out and become frizzy. If you’re struggling with maintaining your hair, we have previously visited some tips and tricks to frizz-free curls. We recommend using a microfiber towel to dry, detangling your hair carefully, and keeping your hair moisturized, to name a few tips.

A fun pair of sunglasses
Ice Spice almost always drips confidence in whatever she wears, so sunglasses match her “cool” aesthetic. This accessory is not only fashionable but also practical, as the best sunglasses come with lenses that block 100% of the sun’s UV rays for the most comfort. If you have an oval-shaped face like Ice Spice, square eyewear like her iconic pink sunglasses can go well on your face. A good alternative is Chopard’s SCHF12S sunglasses, which come in the same color and shape but with a studded upper rim.
An accessory you rarely see away from Ice Spice’s wardrobe is a necklace. In most cases, she enjoys wearing a custom rose gold and diamond chain that features an animated version of Spice’s face. Benny Da Jeweler crafted the jewelry, which reportedly cost around $100,000. You don’t have to spend as much money as the celebrity— instead, you can draw inspiration from the outfits she wears alongside this piece. In most cases, her huge necklace is worn when wearing tube tops or wearing one-piece outfits, bringing emphasis to her face and chest.
Boots and wedges
Unlike many celebrities, Ice Spice doesn’t enjoy thin heels with her dresses. As shared by her stylist Marissa Pelly, Spice prefers comfortable footwear— which is why she is mostly seen in heeled boots, including slouch wedges to over-the-knee styles from brands like Rick Owens and Brandon Blackwood. On formal occasions, she wears trendy platform-soled pumps and sandals from labels such as Stuart Weitzman. Fans can take style ideas, especially from her outfit, during Coach’s fall 2023 fashion show, featuring how to match platform sandals with a casual dress.
For those looking to be stylish, Ice Spice is an effortlessly fashionable icon to follow. With the above-mentioned ideas, you can upgrade how you dress and emanate confidence.
