Lil Nas X came to fame with his hit song “Old Town Road” in 2019. The young star quickly became an internet sensation with his online sarcasm and playful jokes on Twitter. Aside from his hit music and hilarious tweets, Lil Nas X is becoming more known for his flamboyant fashion. The rapper often wears costume-like attire to red carpets and full sequin bodysuits to high-fashion events. Since he got his musical start in the country music genre, Lil Nas X has a plethora of colorful cowboy boots and hats that are custom-made. His whimsical style almost feels like he’s dressing up as a fun character over the years.
