There are several reasons to love Monica – but one reason in particular is her unforgettable style and unapologetic approach to fashion. Over the years, the Southern-born singer has become synonymous with the phrases “giving a look,” “serving the girlies,” and “eating while leaving no crumbs.”

She is a fashion girlies’ fashion gworl.

When Monica first stepped on the scene, her style was more traditional and in line with the trends of the time. With her hair short and chic—and no strand out of place—Monica rocked cropped jackets and blazers, leather coordinates, mini skirts, and suits.

Simply put, Monica was the ’90s.

Later, the singer started coming into her own. As she dropped songs like “U Should Have Known Better,” “Every the Beat Drop,” and “The Boy Is Mine,” her style became more defined and unique.

In 2017, Monica’s former stylist, Ade Samuel, told BET that the singer was an avid reader and style researcher. So, as Monica’s career grew, she started combining trends and style notes with her preferences and vibes. The pairing of industry updates with personal passion was a match made in heaven.
