Some wardrobe classics never age. Like the leather biker and white t-shirt combo. Or the shearling jacket and grey jumper match. However, for every timeless look, there’s one that will never work. Ever.
“I’m certainly not a fashion expert; just someone who thought it’d be funny to explore ‘inverse cutoff shorts’ and wearing socks over your sandals. But I think there’s a spectrum of giving your wardrobe zero thought and way overthinking it,” Saia explained. “There are a lot of guys in San Francisco who seem to just wear whatever free clothes their company gives them with the logo on it, and I find that sort of uninspiring… but hey, people have different priorities. [For example,] my partner wears the same exact thing every single day like a cartoon character, and it works for him!”
To those who haven’t found their look yet, Saia advised to just mix the familiar with the new. “Everyone has a favorite shirt or sweater; think about what you like about it and then try to find things that have those elements to it. Also, trying on a certain kind of jacket or pants that you’ve never worn before can be really surprising. No matter what the style is, having things fit makes a huge difference. And it’s worth remembering that the fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world, just behind the oil industry; so getting things that last or shopping at second-hand stores is a good way to go.”
