If it hasn’t been obvious by now, streetwear is my favorite go-to style. I live for a good plaid shirt and torn denim combination. While the latter has recently been a stable of mine, it’s been pretty hot to wear a buttoned up plaid shirt. For the rare cool summers evenings, a plaid shirt is perfect for layering over a thin tee.
A cool Wednesday evening saw me being able to enjoy my favorite red and black plaid shirt from Forever 21. I love the color combination, because it reminds me of fall, a season that’s just a few weeks away. You can say my look is an early welcome to fall.
I paired my plaid shirt with light wash skinny fit torn jeans from Zara. The light color denim and torn jeans complimented the darker tones in my shirt, while still giving my look some summer vibes.
Now when it comes to a summer streetwear look, it’s become standard to pair it with sneakers or even boots. However, dress shoes and loafers have found themselves intertwined into streetwear. That’s why I decided to pair my new Sam Edelman tan suede loafers with my streetwear attire. Tan suede is all the rage when it comes to chelsea boots that I’ve seen paired with streetwear looks. Going the loafers route can be a nicer alternative for the hot days of summer, plus they can provide comfort without sacrificing style.
If you haven’t added loafers or dress shoes to your streetwear look, I suggest giving it a try. The best thing about fashion is mix and matching streetwear and high-fashion, that’s why I love it!
