To emulate the style, go for a laid-back crewneck sweat with bold lettering like this one from Tommy Jeans. On your bottom half, opt for checked pants to give your ensemble a preppy edge. Finish your look with a casual pair of Converse sneakers in the same color as the pants to keep it uniform.

Go for a vintage-flavored soccer shirt up top and wear it tucked into loose-fitting basketball shorts. Maintain the sports-focused vibe down low and don a pair of gum-soled kicks complete with tube socks. To round off your ensemble, opt for a boxy denim jacket and tie a plaid shirt around your waist for a final flourish.

Pop on some retro Reebok kicks to add a streetwear edge to your ‘fit and tie a check sweater around your body to show that you’re skilled in the print department.
