I was bit indecisive going with the whole traditional red, white and blue representation scheme for an outfit on the 4th of July. I was invited to a rooftop party that subsume live music, food and fireworks you can see sky rocket up from the city skyline so I was positive I wanted to sport something flashy or categorical to that. Browsing through my dresser for options, I reached for a sleeveless hoodie I purchased during the spring and yet to wear. Mainly because of the ostentatious shine (wearing anything metallic) I said “….fuck it, I’ll just add red and blue but my way.”
My top has faux leather featuring a metallic finish, a sleeveless cut, and raw-cut cropped hem which I knotted up a bit in the front since it fits me pretty baggy. A good thing to mention is its versatility between being stylish and the advantage it has transitioning between looks. Formality, It’s an active hoodie made for athletic purposes, light weight and breathable fabric so you wont die while working out or melt from just standing/running outside considering summer temperatures and all. Or as an alternative, completely surpassing through it to switch that bitch up to your liking!
To incorporate the color “red” I slipped into satin shorts with a smocked elasticized waistband, curved hem and snap-button closure at the sides that essentially looked dynamite together with the hoodie.
To finish off the color scheme with “blue” I wore an off blueish-gray Nikes that are actually really old, I hardly wore them but still hold great value. These sneakers were a birthday present many light years ago.
Ombre nails for approximation & points of gold accessories for that contrast.
