Feeling that first week of 85-degree weather? Nothing better. Sundresses. Outdoor hoops. Ice cream trucks. Son, that’s like heaven right there. If you’re a high schooler, you’re rolling deep with your squad on Friday afternoons and making moves all over town. If you’re in college, well, life is basically perfect for those last few weeks before school lets out for the summer. Finals and tests and GPAs? Who cares? The sun is out, everyone’s rocking shades, and cats are outside throwing footballs around. Put the books down. (At least that’s how I dealt with it.)
The summer is a time for outdoor pickup runs and the flyest pool parties, weekends with the crew at the lake house, or early morning get-ups at the skate park. It seems like everyone is doing the same things and that’s part of the fun. You’ll run into people you haven’t seen in months, old teammates you haven’t noticed in years, cats who dissed you will be giving you dap, and acquaintances will become best friends. However, it’s also the best time of the year to separate your swag from everyone else’s because, just as everyone is chilling at the same spots, doing the same things, everyone’ll be wearing the same fits. Whether you’re in the city or ‘burbs won’t matter. To standout, pay extra attention to what you’re wearing.
By now, you hopefully know what trends are popping this year. From the Roshe Run still going strong with more colorways to a new collection from the Jordan Brand for the collaboration between Air and “Hare,” this will be a fun summer. Just make sure you’re prepared. Here are 10 Style Essentials You Must Cop Before School Ends.
