Cam Newton makes headlines for losing, but we think he won.
As a woman who splits 50/50 of my time between men’s and women’s style blogs, I notice a difference. Aside from a lack of Kardashian drama, I see that men don’t step out so much.
It’s true the last few years we’ve had a “resurgence of menswear.” Guys started embracing patterns, and colours… they embraced JOGGERS. Pants with elastics in the freaking cuff! You’re out there, you’re wearing them and you look AWESOME.
While musicians, actors and celebrity bloggers have lead the way, athletes have been late to the (pun) game. One small wrong move can make headlines and I imagine the locker room is less of a safe creative space and more of an old-fashioned feral boys room.
However, there is a noticeable rise of athletes stepping into the fashion scene.
LA Laker, Nick Young gets a ton of press for his style chops. He goes to NY Fashion week and basically bleeds YSL. He was even named the most stylish athlete by GQ in 2015.
I’m a fan of the dude, he kills it. But, it’s always easier to be fashion forward when you’re average size. At Gotstyle, it’s in our DNA to dress everybody not just sample size. So you’ll understand why we’re all really impressed when we see bigger than average guys, like Cam Newton owning game day looks and schooling his teammates.
So Mr. Hockey butt and Cycle thighs, let this be your celebrity fashion icon!
You too can push your boundaries!
Here’s the secret.
The secret to pulling off fashion forward looks (when your built like a football player), the secret to ultra-tailored jackets, to “Pitti Uomo” like cropped suit pants, to pulling off foxtails and standing the fuck out for once is…
