Remember when athleisure was cool? Lol me neither. This Frankenstein term was coined by the fashion industry about 3 years ago to describe the rising trend of activewear becoming ready to wear. Personally, I’ve always looked for reasons to wear basketball shorts, sweatpants, and hoodies for any occasion. (AKA a cozy boy.) At this point, the moniker is used to sell overpriced sports bra and leggings to people who only go to the gym to flex on the gram. (I mean, same but still.) Personally, I’m just waiting for the wave to be over, but until then I’ll be at work in my thrift store long sleeves tees and sneakers that cost way too much for me to be wearing them to half of the fleabag bars I go to.

As much I love fashion and working in the industry, sometimes I just want to step and be like “lol guys it’s not that serious.” I’m always down for some fun, even if it means picking up this Looney Tunes hoodie from my favorite thrift store. Even scrolling through my own instagram there are a lot of pictures of my in neutral colors giving a mean mug. That being said, I decided to switch it up for y’all. Since the sweatshirt is the highlight I wanted to style around it in a casual streetwear look. I’m also working on smiling more since it’s free, ya know.

Remember that period of time in the 2000′s where everything in your fit had to match perfectly? I’m taking about a matching jacket, a matching fitted (remember those?!), and matching sneakers. While that might have been borderline tragic, it wasn’t that much a bad idea if you think about it. In moderation, color coordination can be pretty dope. I’ve had these sneakers for a while and didn’t post, even though I loved them. It wasn’t until I was doing my usual rounds at the thrift store and found this jacket, that I immediately knew I’d found the perfect pairing. While this is nice to do once in a while, I wouldn’t make this kind of look a usual thing. You don’t want to be known as the “matchy-matchy” guy. (Or maybe you do…It’ll probably get you more Instagram followers so do what you gotta do.)

Ed note: Shoutout to you if you get the double entendre in the post title. (If not you’re still cool, I suppose.)

Pulling Off Prints

If you listened to me, then you’re closet is full of printed shirts you copped for under $15 bucks each. (If your salary allows you not to worry about cost, then feel free to PayPal your boy some change to keep this aesthetic a float.) With the summer season officially coming to an end this week, you probably think you have to put them all away. WRONG. Well kinda. I highly recommend holding on to some of those for a little bit longer. The Hawaiian shirts and too bright hues can be packed up until next summer or a tropical getaway. (Again if you have the funds to do that, you can throw me a ticket too.) Personally, I’ll be sticking to my blues, greens, and muted tones. Since the shirt is where the party is, make sure to pair with blazers, sweaters, and jackets that don’t wind up making you look like some crazy optical illusion. (Unless you’ve already passed the  Print-Matching 302 class.) I decided to go with an “architect dad” look and matched my polo with a simple blazer, chinos, and white slip ons to give off that faux business casual vibe. Enough to make a statement, but not enough to look like an absolute peacock.
