Wearing black and white clothes might seem somewhat boring. However, if the right items are paired together, the outfit can go a long way. I find minimalism to be interesting and fascinating; my closet mostly consists of black and white clothes. When I shop, I am drawn to very basic items because I know that these items will never get old and they will always come in handy.
When I came across this Fashionisto in the streets of Guangzhou, I was in love with his outfit. I wished I could have every single item he was wearing. Most of his outfit was purchased from Y-3. The designer is Yohji Yamamoto and he partnered with adidas to create a high fashion, minimalistic line of clothing. This Fashionisto perfectly paired his long white tank top with his Y-3 striped shorts. The three stripes on the shorts add a little edge. If these shorts were plain black, they would have been no different than any other shorts in stores. However, the stripes going around the shorts make the look interesting yet still keeps it simple.
To balance out his outfit, this Fashionisto wore Y-3 sneakers. These sneakers are very unique; they don’t have any shoe laces or zippers. What really makes them special is that you just slip them on like socks. Not only do they sound comfortable, but they are also very well designed.
As for the accessories, this Fashionisto is wearing a few bracelets, a cap and Ray-Ban sunglasses. These are perfect accessories for the hot weather in Guangzhou. This Fashionisto was prepared for the hot weather from head to toe and still maintained a minimalistic approach.
It has been a very hot week here in Guangzhou. It is difficult to spot someone wearing a nice outfit outside, so seeing this Fashionisto was like a breath of fresh air. He proves that even though it is hot outside, you can still rock a simple outfit and stand out from the crowd.
