INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
STYLISH GUYS IN FRESH DENIM
By Lakeisha Goedluck, April 1, 2018
Of late, streetwear aficionados have been stocking up on retro trainers. Nike’s most popular models from the decade have been reaching the 20-years-old mark, so to celebrate, the brand’s been reviving its iconic silhouettes in fresh colorways. To join in on the hype, try styling a pair of old-school kicks with straight-leg light-washed jeans like this guy, and don a color-block track jacket on your top half to complete your road-ready look.
If you’re after a more relaxed ensemble, layering up with a denim jacket is the way to go — as this guy so expertly proves. Starting off with a simple black knitted jumper, he picks a mid-washed denim worker jacket to wear on top for serious transitional steez. Down low, he goes for a pair of brown jeans (notice how the color matches the buttons on his jacket) and finishes his get-up with a laid-back pair of adidas Gazelles.
An aesthetic that’s been high on the sartorial agenda recently is streetwear remixed with skatewear staples — and this guy’s mastered the look. On his top half, a hoodie, sportswear vest, cross-body bag and fisherman beanie satisfy the street-lead aspect of his get-up, while a pair of slim-fit jeans with rolled cuffs and chilled Converse One Star sneakers add a skate-inspired touch. Oh, and carrying a skateboard as an accessory helps too.
