Steal His Look: Russell Westbrook
Pulling out all the stops during the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend
Two time NBA All-Star Game MVP and SG-appointed NBA style all-star, Russell Westbrook was at it again this past weekend. Kitted out in what’s next for athleisure, he showcased his attention-grabbing style that matches his bold on-the-court style.
This men-in-tights athleisure look is a natural progression from the athletic definition of the trend. Meaning: We’re seeing guys layer tights under shorts while working out on the regular. Style industry guys like Eugene Tong rock this look with skinny jeans or trousers, but it works just as well with tights like Westbrook’s. The main styling trick: keep the bottom half of your look muted and monochrome. If the shorts and tights (or jeans) are too colorful, it’ll shoot you right up into an 80’s exercise video territory.
See how to steal Russell Westbrook’s 2016 All-Star Weekend style:
Wear it well:
- When styling a utilitarian look, use muted neutrals like khaki, olive, gray, and black that you can easily mix and match. As an added bonus, neutrals are easy to pair with other pieces you already have in your wardrobe.
- Use several layers to create a multi-textured look. A plaid flannel shirt worn between your tee and jacket can add warmth and design to your outfit.
- If you’re not too sure about shorts over pants, opt for a pair of paneled joggers like this pair from Nike.
- For truly Russell Westbrook-inspired eyewear, choose a pair from his collection.
