After a year of putting it off, I have finally decided to make The Sporty Fashion my own. Please go to thesportyfashion.com for new post about fashion and sports!
Thank you for reading!
Happy 35th birthday to Kobe Bryant!! Say what you want about this man, but there is no denying that he one of the greatest players to ever play the game. It’s definitely been a love/hate, mostly frustrating relationship with this man, but I have thoroughly enjoyed watching him play and grow as a player.
NBA All-Star, Russell Westbrook is not only known for taking risks on the court, but he’s also known for taking a lot of risks in fashion. Whether he’s sporting bright colors, outrageous prints, or ill-fitting pants, he has many NBA fans and fashionistas singing his praises or scratching their heads. His outfit for tonight’s Teen Choice Awards was no different.
As comical as this outfit may look, dropped crotch pants for men is one the hottest trends today. They all over the runways, worn by many bloggers and celebrities, and are a central piece to many designers like Boris Bidjan Saberi and Yohji Yamamoto. As big as this trend is, I rarely see regular men wear this look, so I do commend Russell for taking such a big risk. But I really think he should’ve opted for a more darker color and looser fitting top. The combination of his tall and muscular frame, and the bright white color make this outfit a little hard to look at.
At least he can replace Tommy as the white ranger.
It’s very rare for me to get excited about a rave, but when Hard Summer rolls around, I’m all about it. The reason why is due to the type of music I am into at the moment. I like my EDM a little more aggressive and really bass heavy. There are plenty of places around LA that play that type of music, but Hard is where all my favorites like Ryan Hemsworth, RL Grime, and TNGHT play at one time.
If you read my last blog post, you would know I am the last person to show up like this:
Instead, I opt for more clothing and comfort. For this years Hard, I decided to go all 90s. I wore a basic muscle tee, denim shorts, a black snapback by 40oz NYC, black TOMS, and tied the look together with a black plaid shirt. The mostly black outfit may not have been warm weather friendly, but it was a comfy outfit for all the dancing and walking I was doing the whole day.
Enjoy some pictures I took below!
For weeks, I have been trying to figure out how to wear my sleeveless chambray shirt I got from Forever 21. I’m pretty shy when it comes to showing a little bit of skin, so when I realized that this shirt was a crop top, I obviously panicked.
Luckily, LA has been unexpectedly cooling down and I was able to find some inspiration with the July gloom. I paired my crop top with an oversized cardigan and high-waisted leather shorts. I pulled the look together with a high messy bun and pair of cute leopard print flats. I did end up showing a little bit of my belly button, but it wasn’t a lot to make me feel uncomfortable.
How do you wear crop tops?
I’ve always been a fan of an all denim outfit. I know for some of you out there, denim on denim means a ‘Canadian jumpsuit’ or the super matchy outfits of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake back in 2001. But the look can actually be a really cute if you mix different types of denim in one outfit.
It hasn’t been that hot in LA, so I was able to lightly layer my look. I wore my favorite denim shorts from H&M, a light blue chambray shirt and a basic white tank. I accessorized with bracelets and wore my leopard print flats to keep finish off the laidback look.
