Ice Spice’s Daring Style Includes Mesh Dresses, Matching Sets and Bold Boots
By Aaron Royce,2023-05-28
Ice Spice has made waves since rising to fame in late 2022 — and so has her daring sense of style.
The 23-year-old musician’s approach to dressing frequently includes daring and boundary-pushing attire with a wide range of sheer textures, cutouts and mesh — often hailing from editor-loved brands including Dion Lee, Eckhaus Latta and Jean Paul Gaultier. However, with the help of stylist Marissa Pelly, she’s also packed an array of surprises up her sleeves — whether in a sleek Balmain gown at the Met Gala, or a preppy minidress in Coach’s front row during New York Fashion Week.
Ice Spice’s shoe choices are equally wide-ranging, and have risen in both consistency and height during her rise to fame. The musician regularly favors heeled boots, which have soared from slouchy wedges to over-the-knee styles from brands like Rick Owens and Brandon Blackwood. For formal occasions, she’s also leaned into trendy platform-soled pumps and sandals from labels including Stuart Weitzman.
Soon after rising to prominence with her TikTok-famous song “Munch (Feelin’ U),” Ice Spice hit the red carpet at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Sept. 2022. For the occasion, the musician beat the Georgia heat in a white mesh dress over a matching bra and briefs — sharply paired with slouchy wedge-heeled booties, a heart-studded diamond chain necklace and Telfar’s metallic silver mini tote bag.
In one of her most viral appearances in her debut New York Fashion Week season — which also included stops at Dion Lee, LaQuan Smith and Tia Adeola — Ice Spice arrived to Coach’s fall 2023 show in a head-to-toe look designed by creative director Stuart Vevers. Styled by Pelly, her spring 2023 attire featured a dark green minidress with golden yellow varsity lettering over sheer black tights. The singer’s outfit was complete with Coach’s red leather Tabby clutch and rust-toned suede platform pumps, as well as a whimsical diamond pendant necklace.
Ice Spice solidified her position in fashion at the iHeart Radio Music Awards in March 2023, where the “Boy’s a liar, Pt. 2” singer wore a black and white-striped Jean Paul Gaultier bodycon minidress — which was also the spring collection’s first celebrity outing, as Pelly revealed on Instagram . The piece was layered with sheer black Wolford tights, a diamond chain-link necklace and a sparkly Amina Muaddi clutch, as well as velvety black platform sandals.
For her first Met Gala , Ice Spice popped in a custom white embellished bodycon gown from Balmain, complete with sheer paneling, long sleeves and a draped train. Her Olivier Rousteing-designed outfit — virally made in under 24 hours — was smoothly complemented by diamond Effy Jewelry stud earrings and rings, a camera-shaped Judith Lieber clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels.
For her first appearance on Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour , Ice Spice hit the MetLife Stadium stage to perform the duo’s remix of “Karma.” For the occasion, she wore a custom stud-accented Dion Lee crop top and miniskirt with a sheer black lace garter and shrug. Her ensemble was finished by Pelly with a diamond-coated pendant necklace and watch, as well as slouchy black leather Brandon Blackwood boots elevated with thin stiletto heels.
