A little over a month ago, I got to shoot an amazing project with Details Magazine and Diesel. I got to style three looks and decided to explore some very different periods in my life…
1. CHILDHOOD – Overalls were an integral part of my childhood wardrobe. I think my mom kept Osh Kosh B’Gosh in business. I wanted to show how overalls could be incorporated into my current wardrobe without feeling overly childish. Any time you wear a single texture (i.e. denim), it’s important to break it up with neutrals (i.e. white shirt / white sneakers).
2. HIGH SCHOOL – Like any other explorative teenager, I must have transitioned between a handful of “styles” in high school. I was a preppy athlete, boy-bander, goth, and hippie… just to name a few. One of my favorite ‘styles’ involved bringing the 90’s grunge from my middle school years into high school. Chunky sweaters, baggier denim and mountaineer boots were some of my favorite pieces.
3. ADULTHOOD – Avid readers of my blog know I’ve grown up (a bit) since my high school years. I’m much more of a casual guy. I like pieces that make me feel comfortable without sacrificing my style. This crew sweatshirt and faux leather pants keep with my general aesthetic but showcase an edge that I lacked in my wardrobe before moving to New York City.
