Hello everyone! I'm back with a post that I have been just dying to write. I haven't had the chance to properly collaborate with someone on my blog yet, because I feel like it's still new and I'm still trying to establish myself and my style to an audience. That being said, I draw inspiration from people all around me, especially my friends and those I work with! I myself am a huge fan of unisex clothing and looks that translate to both girls and guys, so I wanted to incorporate that theme into my next post. The first person that came to mind was my friend Owen, who runs a fashion site called The Fashion Whale (CLICK HERE) among a million other amazing things he does. 

Something that we both bought fairly recently and that we love are these Adidas Superstar sneakers, and if you follow fashion and street style at all you'll have seen this shoe everywhere this past season. They are the chosen footwear of off-duty models and celebrities alike, with it-girls Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner sporting them to name a few. To me, it's easy to see why they've risen to such popularity: they're classic! They're black and white so they match everything, and they're extremely comfortable. They lend just the right mount of laid-back cool to any outfit. The styling opportunities are endless! I would pair these with a skirt and top, or a dress, and balance a more feminine outfit out with these shoes.

For this outfit, we both chose to wear pretty similar silhouettes. Owen's outfit is tailored but more loose-fitting, and the colors are muted which allow his shoes to stand out. The shoes bring a more casual element to an otherwise dressier ensemble, so he can take this look from day to night very easily. I chose to wear them with some straight cut skinny jeans and an oversized sweatshirt, because I was going for an extremely relaxed look that's easy to repeat and wear again! I'm trying to simplify my wardrobe, so I'm choosing pieces that are versatile and as clean as possible.

What do you guys think? How would you style these shoes? Let me know down below! 

Rekik

P.S. you can follow Owen on Instagram (HERE)! Also, many apologies for the lighting - we shot so late in the day I'm surprised anything turned out well at all! Try and ignore it and instead enjoy the beautiful fall scenery down in Richmond!
