Athleisure trend is in. Let those sneakers shine and tailored pants out of the closet.
As of late, I have been trying to achieve that athleisure streetwear look that has been going around. I am enjoying pairing formal pieces with sneakers. It kind of stirs the too serious look into a more cooler and wearable outfit which doesn’t have to be more of an office attire. An excuse to get those good pair of slacks from the closet.
I mean c’mon I’m wearing denim again so exciting! Haha

Trying to achieve the easiness and relaxed vibe. It was a comfortable outfit to be truly honest. Not constricting. Still with enough room to move.
I rolled out the jacket’s sleeve to break the boxiness of the jacket quite a bit.
#OOTD: Uniqlo Navy sweater, Cotton On tobacco brown slacks, Vans slip ons, AND the star of this look is the Thrifted vintage Levis denim jacket with an extra interesting bleached out pocket detail that made me really get it even if I have to shell out $25 for it. Super expensive for a thrift store! But I just could not resist. And the jacket is not the usual button up, it’s like a bomber jacket which I still don’t have. An interesting addition to my growing collection.
It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I just want to share what my current state of style is like. In the end, we still get the decision on what to wear whether we dress up for an audience or just plainly for ourselves. But, just be yourself. You’ll be fine.
I have a thing for earth tones specifically brown. It still has been my go-to color for my outfit choices and accessories amongst others. I’ve been comfortable wearing khakis and beige brownish over tones from top to bottom. Now, when Kanye West introduced his collection Yeezy Season 1 which was dominated by these colors, it really got me excited. It has that easiness and relaxed look which is on trend right now. He really knows what’s up.
The androgynous look of his collection is quite spot on. It’s very versatile and could readily translate to menswear which is kind of genius so say the least. I am getting Japanese minimalist look with his collection which is my style grind right now. I am digging Japanese fashion. Damn right, I love just the look of not really getting too dressy and preppy but has that coolness and sophistication.
Although our dear Tim Gunn might have threw some shade on Kanye and his recent dabble with fashion and also the Kardashians. I reserve him the right to his opinion. In the first place, he is a professor. He who knows fashion can have that critical opinion. In the words of Mr. Gunn, “When it comes to fashion I say to people all the time, if you want guidance for your fashion just consider this, if a Kardashian is wearing it — don’t.”
I just love Tim! He says it straight out.
But I thought that Kanye is just capitalising to what is now. Basics are a big trend so. That was easy, Yeezy? But, I am a basic human so this sells really well to me.
