ALL IN THE DETAILS: Team Bandana

April 10th, 2015 at 2:10am

Recently on UPenn’s campus, it’s beginning to feel a lot like spring and it is about time, right? The athletic wear trend is still going strong, and I am one of its number one fans! I love looking trendy while staying comfortable and I’m all about sneakers recently. I am also loving the bandana print pattern that is resurfacing. Don’t get me wrong—excessive bandana can be a little harsh but the right amount is sure to do the trick.

Now, when a Fashionisto pairs both the athletic wear trend and bandana trend, they are speaking my language! This Fashionista is a prime spring, athletic wear and bandana print example. Not only is he wearing one of my favorite color palettes, but he is also wearing just the right amount of print to make the outfit pop and make a statement.

I consider this top a part of the athletic wear trend because of the cut. The cut mirrors the cut of a baseball jersey and is a nice material. These type of shirts are great pieces without patterns as well because they have a loose fit and can be paired with numerous different bottoms. Plus, even though they are seen more on men, I argue they can be considered unisex. I would even buy a similar mens shirt in a large size and wear it as a dress!

The pattern is carried all over the front and back of the shirt and even comes in black with white detailing. Over this shirt, our Fashionisto layered a super dope hood cardigan and a black transitional coat for the chilly spring mornings.

To complement the outfit, this Fashionisto paired some fitted straight leg rag & bone jeans with the look and threw on some dope high-top sneakers. The gray and black coloring of the shoes ties in the whole outfit and shows that this Fashionisto knows how to pay attention to details.

He accessorized with some super cool club master Ray-Ban shades and a Fendi backpack that mixed in a new color to the ensemble without taking away from the rest of the look.

How to: If you don’t want to make your look stand out with color, add prints! Pair a black and white outfit with bandana printed apparel, and don’t miss out on the athletic wear trend!
