CelebrityShameik Moore’s Easy Trick for Out-Dressing Everyone
As much as we believe in basics, there’s something to be said for a proper outfit. In our casual times, it’s sort of a lost art. Even Jaden Smith, one of the most stylish guys in the game right now, wears black skinny jeans on the regular. And where would Justin Theroux be without an endless supply of paper-thin T-shirts? That’s probably why Shameik Moore’s latest red-carpet looks, comprised of matching separates and a bandana worn like an ascot, have felt like a breath of fresh air. Here’s a guy who doesn’t need a style safety net. It instantly separates him from the pack.
The funny thing about this technique is that it actually makes getting dressed easier, not harder. Matching separates, like suits, are a one-and-done move. All you have to do is add a few accessories and you look like a guy who really knows how to put himself together. And while they might not be sold by retailers like suits, you can piece them together yourself pretty easily. To save on fabric costs, and tie a collection together, designers often make tops and bottoms that coordinate. They also use them to create "editorial" looks for the runway and look books, knowing they can easily be broken apart IRL. But how about not doing that for once?
Here are a few Shameik-inspired pairings that have Labor Day weekend written all over them. We dare you to give your white T-shirt and chino shorts the weekend off.
