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.

Now that spring is allegedly here (you can’t be too sure in the northeast) it’s a perfect time to talk about my favorite trend for the upcoming season, NEON! I wish I was joking, but all I want to do is look like a highlighter. I’m talking about bright yellows, oranges, blues, you get the picture. Before I get carried away, I’m trying to introduce some key pieces in my wardrobe, which I suggest you do as well. I wanted to complement the bright yellow with tints of green. Honestly, if you’re going anywhere in a crazy color hoodie you might as well have fun with the whole fit.

I was on a team call the other day and when asked what I was “obsessed” with this wear I panicked, caught a glimpse of my reflection and said “uhh beanies when it’s warm outside.” Which brings me to today’s style lesson. Is it OK to still wear beanies after the winter or in a warmer climate? SURE, but there are a couple things to consider. If it’s 90+ degrees outside then the obvious answer is no. I like to play the proportion game. You can wear them with long sleeves and shorts or with a short sleeve shirt and full-length pant. (Basically, 1/2 of your limbs have to be covered.) Anything else is pushing it, fam. Beanies are perfect if you’re having a bad hair day or like me, have started to go prematurely bald before 25. Let the summer beanie live on like it did with trashbag originator Colin Farrel in the early 2000s.

Don’t Call It A Comeback

Going back through this blog there are pictures of me rocking the tropical shirt. (Oh hey, 2013.) Apparently after all this time some people still don’t know how to wear the short sleeve printed shirt without looking like an extra in The Brady Bunch Goes to Hawaii. (Nvm, that actually sounds amazing.) If you’re not on an island, you’ve got to do better. While you can wear one of these several ways, I decided to style it open with a white tee underneath to break up the print. It’s a little early in NYC to wear shorts so I teamed it with a straight leg pair of jeans (it’s not just all about the slim/skinny fits) and light colored shoes. As with everything,, accessorize according to your own taste. Obviously I’ve never met a wide brim hat I didn’t like and a little something something on my fingers.
