Earn Your Stripes
With the athleisure boom earlier last year, and continuing its sprawling reach halfway into 2016 as well, it came as no surprise to anyone that sports luxe was making a major comeback. Couple that with the 90’s nostalgia that ironically took everyone by storm, the ultimate all American varsity stripe made its way into the style circuit and became the stripe du jour.
The trend has been in the loop for a while now, and this uber androgynous style is now omnipresent. From dresses to joggers to blazers and literally everything that’s made with fabric. Our personal style too found a favorite in this print and you’d find us sporting it quite often. We love its unisex form and the effortless cool mien it gives outfits.
Our friend Gautam, too hopped upon the bandwagon with us and sports a super causal yet street cool look. Sometimes, stylistic options for men can be limiting compared to the experimenting that’s allowed with women's wear, the varsity stripe is a fun way to add some quirk and style to otherwise regular looks.
Gautam is donning a shirt from Green Hill that keeps the classic varsity stripe true to its form with the achromatic color palette. Deciding to keep the shirt loose, Gautam maintains the cool of the shirt and keeps the casualness kicking and how. And when you go for classics all around, it’s no doubt that basic blue denims and white sneakers are the way to go. He is also wearing the all new round club masters by Rayban that look really classic & again a unisex trend. Varsity stripes, keeping teams together since 1865, and making fashion even more stylish since 2015!
