Read this before your first day at school

It’s that time of the year again! With back to school season kicking in, upgrade your wardrobe with some new sweaters, jackets, denim and a fresh pair of kicks. Make this scholastic year an opportunity to define your identity, hit those grades and sharpen your style. Here’s how:


Let your sneakers speak for themselves

Allow the shoe to speak for itself if you pair it with a monochrome outfit for a nostalgic look.

The NIKE Air Max 90 shoe is a true classic and does not seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon.  Nike’s revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. Three years later, the Nike Air Max 90 let them see even more of it, arriving with a Visible Air window that was bigger than its predecessor. It hit the shelves sporting a fiery shade of red that set the sneaker world ablaze and became a Nike staple.



Combine retro with the future

Combine retro vibes with the future. Colour co-ordinate with an accessory or clothing to Mix’ N’ Match.

For some American college apparel vibes introduce hoodies and baggy sweatshirt items to your wardrobe. With a loose fit and soft French terry fabric, the Nike Sportswear Essential Crew is the cosy closet staple you can’t wait to pull on, day or night. A printed graphic adds Nike love. Give it a 2020 uplift with an M2K Tekno kicks.

The Nike M2K Tekno draws inspiration from the Monarch franchise and pushes it into the future with space-age detailing. Its layered upper mimics the design of the original Monarch, while the chunky outsole draws on the beloved Monarch IV.



Comfort yet stylish

Athleisure is a trend which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions. It is still considered as clothing that “looks like athletic wear” but is characterized as “fashionable, dressed up sweats and exercise clothing”. Spice it up with a pair of Chuck Taylor All Star Converse shoes.

It started when Converse took scissors to their original High-Top Chucks, turning them into low top basketball shoes. Then the sneaker escaped the court for the streets, cementing its status as an everyday icon. What’s next for the Low Top Chucks is up to you. They’re versatile, classic and entirely yours to wear any way you want, anywhere you want, anytime you want. We just make the shoe. You make the stories.

Combine this with a casual pair of jogging pants to be comfortable whilst concentrating on your studies.


6 ways to wear a Plaid Shirt

The weather starts getting warmer, so make sure to layer your look accordingly.

  • Layer it with a zipped-up hoodie
  • Closed or open
  • Keep the rest simple
  • Tuck it inside




Simple yet Effective

Being stylish does not mean going over the top. Keep things simple. Your girlfriend may say you shouldn’t leave the house with your sweat pants. Prove her wrong as you pair it with a Jordan Max Aura.
