Shirt - Urban Renewal, Shorts - Zara, Mesh Top - Boohoo, Socks - American Apparel, Sandals - New Look, Necklace - Topshop, Backpack - Topman
Sportswear is still having a massive influence this season, so I decided to post another sports inspired look, this time much more appropriate for the current heatwave we are experiencing. I spotted these amazing jersey shorts (Shorts? Skirt? Skort?), in Zara. The wrap front gives them a really cool edge, and makes the Skort trend wearable for guys! Being made from a heavyweight jersey with an elasticated waistband they are super comfy to wear. I had so many different ideas about how I wanted to style the shorts, but when I came across the vintage shirt in Urban Outfitters I knew exactly what to put together. To really pull together the sportswear influence, I layered an airtex top underneath the shirt, and wore sporty striped calf socks. Ok, I know, I committed the ultimate fashion sin - socks with sandals - but this has been popping up on the runway a few times recently, and has almost become 'So wrong it's right'. I think it's all in the styling - if I was wearing them with cargo shorts and a bum bag in various shades of brown and beige then you would have full permission to slap me across the face, but in this look I think they work. To complete the look I wore a chunky silver chain, and the essential leather backpack.
