RLGT STYLE: Pushing Possibilities (Raymond)
If you didn’t catch last week’s RLGT Style, then you would’ve missed out on our switch up with the segment. Negele offered us some of his own insight on current urban fashion by highlighting some well known players in the music industry that constantly inspire us.
Before we get too deep into that, let’s bring it back this week by showing you another one of our own styles. I’ve been wanting to show this one for awhile. Reason being, this fit was purchased within a very reasonable price range and because I specifically chose this fit to wear when I went out to the Pemberton Music Festival (expect a RLGT recap coming your way soon…). Without holding you too much longer with a wall of text, let’s dive right into it.
- Tank Top by Koto ($10)
- 9″ Glover Linen Shorts by CPO ($29)
- 574 White Instinct by New Balance (Site says $90 but I copped them for $50 on sale)
So yea… I got this fit under $100 dollars. Mission accomplished.
Before any of you guys over react; no I did not bring those shoes out to Pemberton. If I did then they’d probably come back as all-black New Balances.
Before I left to Pemberton, I was bound to find some exclusive wear to match the occasion. For someone who has never been to a festival, I tried to do keep all expectations and standards as low as I could. If I found something nice and affordable, then I’ll get it. I ended up copping these pieces to bring with me over the trip.
Although for some, it may not seem like the purchases were crazy in any regard. But for myself it’s a huge deal. I’ve always been a fan of shades; black to white. I didn’t like to venture too much into colours when it comes to my daily fits. But shopping for shit like this really opened up my eyes to the opportunities and possibilities that could be capitalized on not only with fashion but with a whole collection of various life choices.
This year in particular might be the first year that I’ve had a ‘summer wardrobe’. In all my other years, I would say that I’ve been trying to swag out in all-year attire which really makes no sense. But that’s the struggles I had to go through coming up in a household where money was virtually non-existent. You run with the same patterns from winter time all the way to summer time. This is why I’m so blessed now to be able to afford separating my clothing for different seasons.
