The new wave of R&B girls channelling TLC’s tomboy style

Kehlani, DeJ Loaf and Tink have been reviving the trio’s soulful, attitude-packed image

With their slinky, soul-filled vocal harmonies, sex positive lyricism and absurdly catchy hooks, iconic 90s girl group TLC altered the landscape of R&B forever. But it wasn’t just the music world that felt their influence. The trio’s baggy, branded style, in-your-face colours and brash, career-defining videos, kickstarted an enduring fashion legacy that can still be felt in today’s rising R&B stars. From Kehlani’s low-rise denim and tight tees, to Tink’s stand out, swaggy style, these are the tomboys that have revived that "Hat 2 Da Back" look from our three fave fearless females. With this in mind, we've condensed them all into one killer playlist. Enjoy!
