Were you able to scoop up last month’s “multicolor” releases? In this week’s Not Just for the Gym, I give reasons why you never to sleep on those again, plus some layering ideas with pieces you probably already have.
With these being my third pair of the Nike Flyknit Zoom Agility, I can safely say I like every color of this model, which is why I jumped at the multicolor version. The beauty of a multicolor is that it is easy to coordinate. I paired it with black leggings and my new favorite tank top. This is an opportunity to show off one of your cool sports bras – or, if you aren’t comfortable with showing that much skin, you can always layer another tank under.
I think everybody should own at least one pair of Jordan 1s. For a look that’s clean but not too serious, I wore white 1s (another boys’ section pickup) with my Nike tank and a suit. I love the juxtaposition of the trousers/sneakers and blazer/tank top pairings. Mid-cut sneakers a bit trickier to style but the loose-fit, tapered and cropped style of the pants makes it easy to wear with these. Opt for tapered and loose/relaxed fit bottoms over skinny jeans/tights for Jordan 1s.
Layers, when done thoughtfully and executed well, can add dimension to an outfit even if you are wearing only one color. On this particular day, my black tights alone felt incomplete. I threw on a pair of baggy shorts over (if you haven’t noticed by now, I don’t restrict myself to the women’s section) to completely change the look. Be aware of where the shorts fall relative to your legs – I like them either short or just above the knee. Avoid going below the knee as it is unflattering for most shapes.
[ Shoe: Nike Roshe One Flyknit ]
Whenever a multicolor version of a shoe comes out, I make sure not to sleep on it because they usually sell out quickly. For future reference, it’s good to stay on top of release dates! Roshes offer a sleek silhouette that wears well with different types of pants. I went for a relaxed look here: boyfriend jeans, striped long tee, and a flowy trench coat.
