    Add Stripes to Your Summer Wardrobe

    Stripes are a go-to pattern that’s essential for the summer. However, pulling off other color combos, especially ones with red, will be tough without looking like Waldo or Freddy Krueger. So if you’re going for cool nautical vibes, follow Arian Foster’s lead and choose white and navy blue or cream and navy blue combos. We’re at the midway point of the warmer months so it’s still not too late.

    Don’t Be Afraid to Choose Basic Staples

    Let’s just all admit that part of dressing well is to attract attention your way. But doing so doesn’t mean you have to peacock with the most absurd pieces. Don’t be afraid to go basic. Nothing beats a good sweater and slacks combo, but make sure to add your individual twist to it. Arian Foster does this by choosing a turquois colored crewneck instead of the standard gray. The accessories also make his simple outfit standout.

    Don’t Go Overboard On Accessories

    Big chains and timepieces that blind you from a mile away are not necessary to make a statement anymore. You can actually go smaller with less diamonds, and still make them noticeable by matching the right clothes in your closet. Arian Foster has the right idea here by pairing his accessories with a solid black shirt buttoned all the way up, and chinos. The outfit might be simple but it makes his watch and small chain pop.

    Keep Your Footwear Options Open

    It’s not just about sneakers, boots, and dress shoes. If you want footwear with vintage vibes that’s also super comfy, get yourself a pair of moccasins. The style may be old as dirt, but you’ll be surprised that it goes with just about any modern outfit. Here Arian Foster makes the soft-soled shoes pop by putting its brown hues with a solid fall outfit, whereas he can still keep it funky above with the red Chuck Taylors.

    Get One Piece of Outerwear With Maximum Versatility

    For some of us, warm weather is only four months out of the year if we’re lucky. So finding a jacket that’s versatile is key for the months where the mercury dips. You want to get the most use out of it and also be able to incorporate it into multiple outfits. Thankfully the topcoats like the one Arian Foster and Terry Crews are wearing are perfect examples of versatile outerwear. You can dress them up in a suit like these two in the picture, or dress them down with jeans and a pair of Timberland boots or sneakers.

  • Wear Shower Slides Outside the House

    Don’t let anyone tell you that shower slides are just for lazy days around the house. Check on the streets or the runway and you’ll see this running-to-the-corner-store look flourishing. You have to wear it like you mean it, like Arian Foster does here as he steps on the red blue carpet in front of all those flashing lights. Pair them with some socks that have awesome patterns or go solid. Just make sure they’re clean, and you’re good to go. Don’t worry, Champs Sports has you covered.

    Know When to Break the Rules

    If you want to stand out from the crowd you have to break some rules. This doesn’t mean wearing streetwear at a formal event, but wear something that goes against the grain from everyone else. Finding the right balance between what looks good versus trying too hard is tough, so take some cues from Arian Foster. He knew everyone was probably going to be in gray three-piece suits, so he opted for the opposite by choosing an outfit that makes him standout, but still dressed well enough for a formal setting.

    Layer Like a Boss

    If there’s one on-field style you can borrow from Arian Foster besides rocking his jersey, it’s this warm-up practice look. He’s wearing a sweat-wicking base layer with a cutoff sleeve hoody. However, you don’t have to ruin a good sweater to pull this off because sleeveless hoodies are easy to find. Play around with this sporty look with other type of fabrics and your layering game will go from 0 to 100 real quick.

    When in Doubt, Listen to Biggie Lyrics

    Biggie named dropped Coogi more than once in his lyrics. “However, I stay Coogi down to the socks, rings and watch filled with rocks“ is one of his most memorable lines. The multi-colored sweater worked for Bill Cosby in the ‘80s and Biggie in the’90s, so why not now? The sweater is eye-catching so make sure to keep the rest of your outfit toned-down. I’m talking hoodies and single-colored sweatshirts, kind of like this. Obviously this Arian Foster getup might be for costume purposes, but take off that flattop and that outfit would work anywhere.
