Tips on merging your wardrobe with this throwback ’do
Performing CPR on an old-school style isn’t easy. But like ’Pac (minus the hologram), the high-top fade is riding a rebirth. The key to pulling off an elevated fro: equally eye-catching outfits. If you’re considering letting your hair sprout upward, take cues from the stars. Knicks PG Iman Shumpert, one of the many athletes who’ve turnt up in the style department, stays faded with a downtown off-court approach to attire, opting for skinnies and a printed denim top that gives his look a vintage feel perfect for his cut.
Not feeling the retro revival? Minimalists should make like Kendrick Lamar and go street-casual. Though the Compton rap savior has touched the stage and carpet in everything from eclectic prints to leather shirts, K-Dot prefers pairing corner-boy fresh get-ups (white tees and neutral hues) with one or two standouts.
For rebel-rousers with a more fearless streak, try mating high-fashion streetwear with Euro attire a la Jaden Smith’s indie-rock aura, whether it’s drop-crotch denim and graphic tees or tailored blazers and leathers. Style is a state of mind, but if you’re courageous enough to sport Gumby’s favorite hairdo, make sure your closet can handle the height.
