The Dad Effect

For the last few years, the dad effect has taken over men’s streetwear and has found its way into my wardrobe. From the look of my photos, I obviously don’t know how to act! I love the dad fit, especially dad jeans! In my featured weekend look, I wore some BDG light wash torn dad jeans from Urban Outfitters, which I totally recommend. The relaxed cut with a tapered leg is a perfect medium between skinny and straight.

I was wanting a basic look with a pop of color, so I paired my dad jeans with an orange long sleeve T-shirt from PacSun. The orange color was perfect for a sunny Saturday!

The sunny day called for a cap, so I went with my boyfriend’s Kim Petras pink dad hat, which added another pop of color!

Finishing off my look, I went with a pair of white hi-top Converse, because they are iconic and timeless and definitely complimented my cool dad aesthetic. Once I laced up my shoes, I was ready for a fantastic day out and about with my boyfriend.

With the dad style here and showing no signs of going anywhere, are you embracing it?

Stripes and Dad Jeans for Summer

It’s been a hot, hot summer in Texas. The 100+ degree weather can make it hard to dress cute and not want rip off your clothes halfway through your day. Fortunately, I took a few photos before calling it a day on a sunny Saturday.

I’ve been obsessed with stripes for quite sometime. When I came upon a multicolored striped shirt from Urban Outfitters, I had to buy it. The orange, red, yellow and blue stripe combination are perfect for the summer.

I paired my stripes shirt with another current obsession of mine, dad jeans. Yes, I said dad jeans. I’ve stayed loyal to skinny jeans for more than 8 years, but I tried on a pair of dad fit jeans at Urban, and I liked the fit. They aren’t baggy or loose fitting, but the fit isn’t a tight as skinny jeans. I recommend them if you’re looking to change up the fit of your jeans.

I’ve become a gay man obsessed with stripes and dad jeans for the summer. What have been your style obsessions for the summer?
