Us too, Chance the Rapper. Us too. On the heels of Kanye West selling more merch than the pope at Madison Square Garden this week (!), we present our guide to making the most of this golden era of musician-inspired fashion.

Also Wearing: Printed Crepe Double-Breasted Blazer Coat, price upon request, kaelennyc.com; Wool Crepe Fringe Dress, price upon request, kaelennyc.com; Medium Julian Bag, $245, rebeccaminkoff.com; Salinas Sneakers by Kaanas, $119, shopbop.com; Franco Crystal Necklace, $660, vitafede.com.

"To elongate the look and give this shirt a bit more movement, pair it with a long dress," says stylist Shea Daspin. "A bright color, like red, makes the Purpose Tour T-shirt pop, and to top it off, a floral-patterned coat adds a modern, feminine finish."

The Merch: Kanye West Saint Pablo Official Tour Merch Shirt, $140, ebay.com. Also Wearing: Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans With Knee Hole (similar), $109, iijin.com; Metropolis Satchel Rose (similar), $448, furla.com; Kaimu Bangle Set (similar), $595, ashleypittman.com; Organized Chaos Box Chain Necklace, $496, joomilim.com; Lost Innocence Chain & Spike Necklace With Pearls, $198, joomilim.com; Gwynne Shoe, $395, askacollection.com.

"Since this unique airbrush-style T-shirt has a graphic on both its front and back, don't cover it up with a jacket," says Daspin. "Instead, throw on some playful necklaces that don't distract from it. Try a paneled jean for a sassy step up from your usual go-to denim, and swap your sneakers for dressier mules."

"Don't be afraid to take your scissors to your merch—you can cut a tee's neckline and arms to make it less bulky and easier to layer," says Daspin. "A metallic midi skirt adds an unapologetically girly element to a unisex T-shirt, while a comfortable shoe keeps your tomboy side in play."

The Merch: Marilyn Manson Proper Dateback T-shirt, $25, marilynmanson.shop.bravadousa.com. Also Wearing: Cropped Culotte (similar), $495, noonbynoor.com; Black-and-Gray Stripe Linen Mix Short Sleeve Dress Shirt (similar), $55, topman.com; Almirante Tote-Cream Napa, $720, emm-kuo.myshopify.com; Necklace, Joomi Lim; Ora Cat-Eye Sunglasses by Jimmy Choo, $495, nordstrom.com.

"Since Marilyn Manson is such a dark figure himself, this T-shirt benefits from a pop of color and pattern," says Daspin. "A flared pant puts the spotlight on a cool pair of shoes, while a chevron button-down shirt adds a bit of interest up top."

The Merch: Purpose Tour Sorry Tee, $18, forever21.com, Purpose Tour Sweatpants, Forever 21. Also Wearing: Moto Sleeveless Oversized Jacket, $40, topshop.com; Crossover Drape Back Top Cement (similar), $80, oaknyc.com; Metallic High Shine Backpack by ASOS, $48, asos.com; Y-3 Qasa Elle Lace (similar), $385, store.y-3.com; Beaded Hoop Earrings by R. J. Graziano (similar), $15, saksoff5th.com.

"If you're going to rock both Bieber sweats and a raglan T-shirt, throw some denim into the mix so you don't look like you're headed to bed," says Daspin. "A chunky statement sneaker plays up this look's athleisure vibes."
