The New Orleans native, Frank Ocean has maintained a low profile since his last album release, Blonde and the visual album Endless in 2016. Before the release of Blonde, it was 4 years since Ocean’s first debut album, Channel Orange in 2012. Growing up in New Orleans, where much of his musical influence roots from, Ocean worked many odd jobs before making his way to Los Angeles to pursue his music career. He was fearless and relentless to pursue his career, knowing he wanted to get out of his hometown to succeed, to gain the freedom he needed at the time.
From songwriting for talent like John Legend and Justin Bieber, Frank self-released his debut mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra in 2011. This mixtape broke the internet and his fanbase grew overnight, along with his friends Tyler, the Creator and the members of Odd Future. Ocean is constantly working on music, even if there are never any formal releases. He produces and writes not just for himself but different artists in the industry. Aside from music, Ocean has various hobbies and projects that he has his hands on. He leaves room to learn more about things where he is not the expert.
When it comes to style, Ocean is known to wear similar things every day, sort of his uniform. He bases his looks on the shape and layers accordingly. Start your day with a Frank Ocean inspired look!

“With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.” - 1 Corinthians 15:58
