11 sneakers your feet would like to kick it with now

Whether you live on Flexington Avenue and you’re buried in Excel all day or you’re pulling clopening shifts and your Tumblr gets more attention than your iMessages, you’ve got some extra dough burning in your pocket and your feet could use some love. I know you do!

So, where are my coins going this month? Not on a big fat date or a weekend away. Fashion over function!!!!—ing in social settings, man! Behold, my almost reasonable list of sneakers that I’ve got my eye on instead of 2-for-1 apps and bullshit cocktails from a hip new bar with a subpar Tinder fling.

Warm weather wares: yours for the aping.

Let’s get you squared away for what to wear this summer. My favorite items that I know and love are featured below and are yours for the aping.

1st look) Why isn’t there a new Brand New album? Dude, I have no clue. Let the sadness continue with all black, just trim your toe nails and don’t cut them like talons. That’s gross.

2nd look) Are those old pennies in your pocket or are you just a toddler? Take a note from your nephew. Sneakers, striped tee and grey shorts. Get on it. You’ve got all of these things REMEMBER!

3rd look) What are these WASPy friends for anyway? White denim club. You’ve got a pair. And your chambray shirt is always on tune year round!

Tops: Basic black tee ($80) by Rag & Bone, Striped tee ($88) by Steven AlanIndigo madras shirt ($58) by Gant Rugger.

Bottoms: Grey twill shorts ($95) by Save Khaki, Sureshot chino ($99) by Zanerobe, Thin Finn white denim ($168) by Nudie Jeans.

Shoes: “Arizona” slides ($98) by Birkenstocks, Cotu classic sneakers ($68) by Superga, Linen espadrilles ($52) by Soludos.

Whenever I pack for a weekend trip 20 minutes before I leave the house, I throw in a denim or chambray shirt, white denim, a stripe tee, black tee, black denim, and a pair of Soludos (still got my pair from last year!). Take a look at what I wore two springs ago (right here) or see what I was playing around late last summer  (not much has changed, tbh.)

6 black tees (or TTTTTT)

Got Wang taste but a Hanes budget?

Dude, I understand. I got you. No sweat. These tees won’t show it either.

L to R: Angled hem ($28) by Urban Outfitters, Crewneck ($15) by Everlane, Drop-tail rounded neck ($28) by Urban Outfitters.

tee_two

Viscose ($10) by American Apparel, Wide-neck ($18) by Urban Outfitters, Le Big ($30) by American Apparel.

Different cuts, fits, necklines and fabrications give the old Hanes a break. I personally dig the Viscose one from American Apparel right now. It’s very lightweight and has a good hang to it. Plus, it’s on sale. And while you’re at it, pick up two.

–Do you have any favorite tees that aren’t under shirts?
