STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jersey Sure

With the NBA finals starting up and the draft after that, it’s the perfect time to throw on your most prized jersey that you’ve been holding out on. Not only can you show off your style, but you can also show support for your favorite team.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of rocking a jersey is versatility. A jersey can be worn a thousand different ways, if not more. For the ladies, you can wear a slightly oversized baseball jersey as a dress, and pair it with your favorite sneakers or heels. That’s what I mean by versatility. Jerseys can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Jerseys were really trendy in the ’90s, and they’re a fashion trend creeping back into popularity. There are multiple jersey styes. My personal favorite is the baseball jersey, but there are ones for soccer, basketball, football, hockey and the list just keeps on going.

This Fashionisto makes it look easy by rocking a one of a kind, vintage Carmelo Anthony basketball jersey that he bought from a local thrift shop. Thrift shops are perfect for finding really old clothes and bringing them back into style. I personally love thrifting because it’s cheap, and you never know what you’re going to find. Paired with the jersey, he is wearing colorful, polka-dot shorts from Urban Outfitters and a pair of classic Reebok sneakers. This Fashionisto is all about the details and tops off his look with a leather snapback.
