An Athleisure Approach

This summer has been one of the hottest summer’s in Los Angeles to date. I swear, everyday I go out to my car only to see the thermostat reading 95 degrees. Fashion for me is pretty challenging in the heat because I find that layering always helps intensify a look. I finally came across the perfect lightweight summer jacket that I’ve been sporting (no pun intended) on those hot days. This striped track jacket from Express is the perfect layer to any simple tee just like the white crew neck worn in this look.

Jeans are also tricky in the summertime especially if they are a raw denim material of have no stretch/give. I picked up this black skinny jean and they are 100% the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. I was never a fan of denim that was a bit elasticated because I always thought it felt cheap. In this case, the denim has a slight bit of elastic but maintains that durable cotton denim fabric we all love. Honestly, I’ve never been a fan of shorts because my legs look like actual toothpicks (color, shape and size…) so having a nice pair of breathable jeans is always nice!

    Drew, I am obsessed with this outfit the way your able to create such a contrast is really something different and you don’t see a lot of people doing so I give you major props for doing that .
