NEW-SEASON RETRO OUTFITS
We’ve already waxed poetic on
the FW16 key items that we’ll be upgrading our wardrobes with this season, but here’s a couple of cool new ways to style them up. The washed-out striped tee and buffalo-check jacket serve up spoonfuls of retro steez all by themselves, but here’s how to wear them to kick the throwback trend up a notch.
Earn your stripes
The skating community of '70s Los Angeles
gave birth to cult brands and trends that we still want to cop four decades later. With this in mind, we’ve picked the washed-out striped tee as one of our key pieces for the new season. We’re well aware that it’s hardly T-shirt weather at the moment, which is why we’ve teamed ours up with the king of cozy: the teddy-fur flight jacket. For a ‘fit worthy of the rails and bowls of Venice Beach, dress your legs in a pair of tapered, but relaxed jeans in a light wash with knee rips and all-over distressing worn with a pair of clean white low-tops.
For SS16, we were all about safari jackets and shackets, so when it comes to cold weather alternatives, we’re not going to stray far from those silhouettes. Pull on a heavy wool jacket that packs a powerful retro-Americana punch, complete with monochrome buffalo check and borg collar. Avoid replicating an actual lumberjack by giving your outfit a modern Nordic twist, teaming with clean layered basics like this washed-out pink sweater and a sharp pair of charcoal pants on the bottom. Keep any outfit add-ons minimal, like this fisherman beanie and a pair of fresh white sneaks.
