How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…denim overalls?

Okay, so our favorite 90s staple is back this season, overalls!

Sad to say though, I haven’t owned a pair since third grade. Yes, third grade! Even now, I never expected to jump band wagon on this trend. Needless to say, a lot of people have been pulling off this retro look, so I decided to give them a try as well.

Tip: Since denim is denim, you can do a lot with overalls. Depending on your personal style, you can rock your overalls with both straps up, one down, or keep them hanging by your thighs. It’s really up to you. Personally, I usually keep one strap up for support. Give it a try though!

A simple fella like myself paired my overalls with a basic white v-neck tee, wide brim fedora, and white sneakers. Okay, you can call me Farmer Joe if you like, but this is simplicity at it’s finest.

Tip: Most people try to pair their overalls with detailed graphic shirts, while I just like solid colors. Either option is perfect, depending on your preferences. If you are really edgy, try a sweatshirt or tank.

I actually recently wore this outfit to my spring homecoming, and I received a lot of compliments. So, don’t be afraid to try something different. Once people see that you can pull off a particular look, they may take a stab at it as well.

So, what do you think? Would you ever try wearing overalls again? Tell us about your experiences in the comments section below.

Denim Shirt: Old Navy | Shoes: Vans

This weekend, I had the chance to escape the Garden State and kick it with some of my friends in Manhattan. Our day was spent eating, drinking, and listening to music. Good vibes, right?

Needless to say, I brought out my favorite tribal print joggers for the occasion.

So, where did you get these joggers from Bryce? Great question! I actually happened to get these pants from ASOS for $10 last year. Yes, $10! That’s a steal, right?  When you’re shopping on a budget, anything lower than $20 is like the McDonald’s dollar menu.

Enough of that, let’s get back on track here. For the rest of my outfit, I went with a simple, white racer back, denim shirt, and red Vans. Simple, right? Since we are in between seasons, you have to start thinking about the temperature. In this particular case, less is best! The more skin, the better.

How do you like this particular look? Feel free to share your opinions in the comment section below.

After 5: Outerwear

Although spring is full in effect that doesn’t mean you have to put away your jackets and button up’s just yet. As the sun shines throughout the day, there’s still a cool enough breeze to bring out your favorite outerwear piece, the leather jacket!

This week on, we had a chance to link up with our friend Ismail. Today, this aspiring musician shows us how to dress for those chilly evenings.

When stepping out after 5, be sure to dress in layers. Your favorite articles of clothing like jackets, windbreakers, button-ups, sweatshirts, and sweaters are all spring appropriate. So, you should always keep them around for back up. They definitely come in handy!

For instance, Ismail decided to layer his favorite jacket and button-up. Like we always say, you can’t go wrong with black on black, and Ismail pulled this look together with little to no effort. His black items were broken up with a pair of denim jeans, loafers, and a purple scarf.

A scarf in the Spring? Like we said, it gets a little chilly around this time each day. So, you have to do what’s necessary to survive at this point.

In all fairness, Ismail had this to say about his attire, “I believe that way you dress is comparable to the company you keep. It reflects who you are and affects how you’re interpreted.”

We couldn’t agree with you more sir! Thanks Ismail for another great look.

Hitting the road can be a little exhausting sometimes, especially if you are cramped up in a tight vehicle. The best way to maximize your traveling experience is by dressing comfortably. That doesn’t mean throw on a pair of hooping shorts, but rather something more outside friendly. Think about it! At some point, you will have to use the bathroom. So, you want to look presentable in public.

Whenever I travel, my outfits are usually toned down. For instance, today I went with a simple denim jacket, scoop neck tee, skinny jeans, and tassel loafers. Just in case I decided to dress it down further, I could easily throw my jacket in the bag, untuck my shirt, and wear it out casually.

How do you dress for the road? Are you a sweats and t-shirt kind of guy, or do you like to dress it up a bit?
