When you think of spring fashion, many things come to mind: florals, bold colors, short-sleeves and sun glasses. But what about sports? In recent years, streetwear has grown, becoming popular not only on the streets, but in high-fashion and has gained some inspiration from sports.
My featured piece is a DKNY S/S 2015 baseball tee that was from the last S/S collection under the creative direction of Donna Karan. I’ve mentioned my love for the DKNY brand, and this is still one of my favorite pieces that I own from the legendary brand. It’s a perfect example of the sport infused streetwear we’ve come to know and love. In 2017, sport infused streetwear is still going strong. We see it in spring 2017 designer collections like Hilfiger Edition (rugby polos) and Calvin Klein Collection (football jerseys) to brands like Forever 21.
For my sport infused look, I paired my baseball tee and matching cap with some a streetwear must, torn skinny jeans from Zara. I went with black to match my color theme and layered my baseball tee on top of a white Gap v-neck to compliment the black, while matching the white in my converse.
If you haven’t added a sport infused piece to your spring wardrobe, I suggest giving it a try. Trust me when I say, you’ll be giving off those spring fashion vibes!
From capsule collection tees to Arizona tea bottle inspired sweatshirts, my April looks were pretty interesting! I started off with spring inspired looks and ended with a winter inspired look.
My ’90s black Guess oversized logo tee was my favorite piece for April. I had long strayed away from logo tees, but capsule collections just do it right. It might be that logo tees were huge in the ’90s and inspired looks from the decade are spot on. This piece is still available at Guess stores, and I still recommend it!
My DKNY perforated white sweater was a fashion risk that I’m happy I took. I love DKNY and they’ve truly stepped up their game in the streetwear department. I’ve made several other purchases since featuring the sweater, and I look forward to featuring them.
I finished out my April looks with a sweatshirt that tends to only make an appearance during the winter. However, a cold front came out of nowhere, and changed my planned outfit. Unlike the last time it was cold, I picked bright colors over dark.
As April comes to a close, I look forward to May and can’t wait share the looks I have in store.
In an interesting turn of events, we received a cold front this past weekend and it required a light sweater to get through the day. I mean it was a high of 67 degrees, which probably doesn’t feel that cold if you live in the north, but living in south Texas it’s considered a cold front.
The last time I was privy to this weather, I only figured it was fair to dress the mood. This time around I decided to stick to the time of the season and wear some color. I took out an old favorite of mine, an Urban Outfitters sweatshirt that always remind me of an Arizona tea bottle.
To help even out all the color my sweater was throwing out to the universe, I paired it with some black skinny jeans and my old faithful black converse. The black jeans and shoes allowed my sweater to make the statement while matching the black in my sweater.
I couldn’t have an outfit without a cap, an accessory that has become a signature in most of my recent looks. No, I’m not balding, I’ve just really been digging the way they add a little something to every look. I was originally going to wear a black cap, but figured all the black would be too much. Plus, the tan color complimented the sweater.
The cold front was fun while it lasted, but now it’s back to sunny days… or it is? I guess we’ll see if the weather has another plot twist in the near future. Until then, I’ll be planning outfits for hotter days.
When it comes to fashion, I try not to be a designer label snob. I rather spend a $100 on several shirts, instead of two. However, there is one label I’m willing to spend some good money on and that is DKNY. My love for the New York brand started at the tender age of 20 when I started working at my local DKNY. Six years later, I’m still in love with the brand.
It had been several months since I shopped at the one in San Marcos, but a few weeks I made a stop and fell in love with just about every piece for spring. The brand has really stepped up it’s look for men. Gone are the typical button ups and pants. I saw great outerwear, joggers and fashion sweaters and tees. I had to purchase several pieces, two of which I will share in this post.
Sweaters aren’t the first thing that come to mind for spring, but this white sweater is perfect for the season.The sweater is perforated all around, which let’s your body breathe during the hotter days of spring. Now, this piece isn’t for every man, but if you’re willing to show off some skin I suggest purchasing it. It’s perfect with matching shoes like I did, or perfect for balancing an all black look for a night out.
I paired my DKNY sweater with my DKNY gray joggers. The sales associates suggested that I try them on. I didn’t think much of them, but I really loved the way they looked when I put them on. They get a huge plus for the elastic at the cuff. You don’t have to worry about them falling down when having them up to your calves.
Everyone has that one brand they are willing to spend money on and DKNY happens to be mine. If you haven’t purchased clothes from the New York brand, I suggest making a trip to your nearest store. You won’t regret it!
Growing up in the 90s, I recall logo tees and designer jeans being the “in thing”. That trend has been making it’s comeback for the last few years. I see the old logo tees my older brother was rocking in the ’90s all over the place. From Tommy Hilfiger to Guess, you can’t escape it! And after making my most recent purchase, I’ll admit that I don’t want this trend to ever end!
As I was walking at my local mall, I saw this black Guess oversized logo tee that I needed in my life. When I tried it on, I fell in love. The look and fit was perfect!
This past weekend, I had to take my new shirt for a ride, and I had no regrets about making this purchase. I paired my oversized tee with a new pair of Zara torn skinny jeans, my favorite Chucks and my tan suede cap.
If you’re into oversized tee like me, I recommend adding this throwback into your collection. As a ’90s kid, I’m loving this trend, and you can expect to see me rocking it throughout the season.
After several weekends of cold, rainy weather, this past Sunday the sun finally came out. It was great weather, and I was long overdue for a stroll at the park. I put on my Ray-Ban Wayfarer, and my boyfriend and I hit up the Woodlawn Lake Park for a walk and pics.
I figured it was only fair that my outfit of the day match the casual feels of this sunny and breezy Sunday funday. I’ve never been a fan of horizontal stripes, but this Modern Amusement shirt spoke to me when I found it at PacSun, aka it was on sale. It has surprisingly become a favorite shirt of mine. It’s relaxed fit is perfect for warmer days, and the colored stripes are great for spring.
I furthered my relaxed look with slim torn jeans from Forever 21. Now, I tend to stick to skinny jeans, but this pair of pants look pretty good rolled up and the torned loose fit is essential for the hot weather.
I finished off my look with a comfortable pair of New Balance shoes in my favorite color. There’s no shame in dressing for comfort, and a pair of New Balance shoes makes that decision much easier. It doesn’t hurt that they’re perfect for a walk at the park!
With spring officially here, I’m hoping that these sunny, breezy days are here to stay. What will you be wearing for spring?
