What skating taught us about styling. A story by MILANSTYLE.COM, exclusively for LVR.COM!
LESSON #1: START WITH THE BASICS
White-on-white pairings make for a modern choice. Think Z Zegna and Helmut Lang when it comes to basics that are anything but boring.
LESSON #2: BALANCING ACT
Offset prints with neutrals and traditional menswear staples with casual pieces. A Dsquared2 turtleneck and Christophe Lemaire pairing seamlessly blend contemporary and classic.
LESSON #3: FORM & FUNCTION
If a sport and street crossover teaches us anything it is that you can look cool and be comfortable at the same time. Of-the-moment designer J.W Anderson masters this, transforming an activewear-inspired jacket with an unexpected silhouette and belted collar.
LESSON #4: TURNING TRICKS
At its very core, skate is about risk taking, and not unlike fashion, the extra flourishes you add make all the difference. Our preferred new season trick is all about mixing sports elements, a Comme des Garcons Shirt sweater, with sharp tailoring, courtesy of Hugo Boss, for a cool contrast.
LESSON #5: OWN IT
At the end of the day it’s all about attitude. Confidence is key. Finding your own style, essential.
