Pabi Cooper knows how to stir up a street-style sensation each time she steps out, regardless of whether she’s putting on a five-star performance on stage or posing in a fire photoset on the Gram. Her off-duty superstar uniform is one where trendy “It items” shine – think ‘90s mini skirts and trendy fashion staples, combined with a solid foundation of wardrobe essentials. What catches our attention the most, however, is her usage of statement outerwear as the ideal outfit topper. No matter what she’s wearing underneath, which is often a plain, but perfect crop top and a lived-in pair of denim, she relies on stylish bombers and puffers to spruce up and add edge to each outfit.


The BET-nominated artist’s signature casual-sporty vibe is super easy to duplicate, using basics you might already have in your own wardrobe. Her style formula isn’t complicated but it is always à la mode. Think: putting on a plain crop top, a cute mini skirt, an oversize jacket, some chunky sneakers or boots, and cool ‘90s-inspired sunglasses — and you’re pretty much dressing exactly like one of the coolest style stars of our time.

Below, we have compiled a gallery of Pabi Cooper’s best street-style looks that you can shop for yourself – without breaking the bank.


The Denim Mini Skirt


While the denim maxi might be the most on-trend length for 2023, you can never go wrong with a classic short denim skirt or denim skirt, and our fashion muse, Pabi Cooper is well aware of this. Oozing classic style, the trendsetter wore an all-black ensemble and elevated it with a medium-wash denim mini-skirt.

Apart from being stylish, denim skirts are also a closet staple that seamlessly elevates any outfit – even a smile white tee and sneakers.


Dress Please!


Street style connoisseurs, such as Pabi Cooper have been committed to showing us that slip dresses can, in fact, be a street style fashion staple. Oozing luxury, Pabi Cooper elevates the outfit with a fur coat and Gucci slides.

The Leather Jacket


You can never go wrong with a leather jacket. It’s one of those fashion staples that has stood the test of time and stayed in style. Reminding us of the leather jacket’s earliest iteration, Pabi Cooper rocked a black, shiny biker cropped leather jacket paired with neon green statement pants.

Hefty, cosy, and durable, shearling-trimmed leather jackets are the most timely of the bunch given their hygge practicality. Pabi Cooper rocked a longer-length iteration of the fashion staple and we love it!


The All-important Co-ord Set




Co-ord sets have gained immense popularity in recent years due to their versatility and chic aesthetic. Whether it’s a monochrome set or a vibrant patterned ensemble, co-ord sets make a fashion statement wherever you go. Exuding an air of elegance and sophistication, Ms. Cooper donned a cheerleader-esque co-ord set in a pastel pink colour.

Statement Denim


Reinvented denim is unarguably one of fashion’s biggest trends of 2023. Giving 90s grunge, Pabi Cooper adorned a multicoloured, patchy denim co-ord set comprising a bralette and straight-leg jeans.

More Barbiecore


Yes, we’re mentioning Barbiecore…again. Truth is, being a real fashionista requires you to commit to chic trends – and Barbiecore is one of them. Channelling her inner Barbie girl, Pabi Cooper rocked an all-pink outfit featuring a pleather mini skirt, crop top, and bomber jacket.
