The 90's reminded me of the years when playing baseball took up most of my day, and shows like "Saved By the Bell" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" set the standard of what I thought was cool. The trends back in those days were relaxed and carefree. Less effort was definitely more hip. When I was younger, I remember not worrying about how I dressed. I would put on whatever clothes made me feel comfortable, without thinking twice, even if it didn't match. Now that I look back at old photos, I would consider my style to be refreshing to compared to the current trends. There is nothing wrong with dressing down and letting the inner child come out. I wanted to incorporate that same mindset with this look.
Recently, California's weather has been unpredictable, where somedays are hot and others feel like fall is finally here. I decided to layer up in a strategic way to be prepared for both. I am wearing a baseball tee that is comfortable for a sunny day, but also allows enough coverage for cooler temperatures. I remember tying my sweaters around my waist when I was younger. I was too lazy to put it away, but the convenient thing about that was I still had the option to wear it when it got cold. What guy doesn't remember wearing long johns when they were a kid? I decided to wear these thermal pants underneath my copper shorts. With this way of layering, you can still wear shorts while staying warm. I had to complete the look with my snapback and of course a non-matching pair of Vans.
