Thanks to the Hip-Hop culture in the 1990’s and 2000’s sports jerseys became part of everyday style. Although we’ve moved away from baggier silhouettes to more streamlined, there is definitely a way rocking an athletic team jersey can look great. In this shoot I took three of my favorites and paired them with a pair of light wash denim and sneakers.

If your looking to pick up some jerseys go for a throwback or vintage one. Most people that are wearing jerseys that are current, which is cool, but going for a vintage one makes you stand out. Wearing a jersey is already a statement so go for a neutral color bottom and shoes to go along with it. Please…please…please do not wear a Bulls jersey with a Bulls snapback and Bulls shorts etc. You don’t want to look like a ball boy.

Thanks for reading. Take care.
