While we’re in the middle of Spring and Summer is right around the corner, the range of outfits you can wear these days range from light jackets paired with shorts, to a tank paired with a beanie, to jeans paired with a t-shirt. Essentially: when the weather is good, the possibilities are endless. But the question is: how do you stand out when practically anything goes?
Color, layering and a diverse set of garments can put your stamp on your everyday style. We’ve put together a few looks for you to gain inspiration from—under the vein of “keeping it light.” And that’s utilizing a light color palette made up on white and grey and unique ways to pull those colors off with balancing dark shades of color and different textures.
With the first look, our model is wearing a light grey Nike tanktop with textured light denim along with crisp white sneakers. To complete the look, a black New Era cityscape cap rounds the look out with its subtle leather brim.
Our next look shows our model wearing eye-catching pants with zip-up pockets and a photo print of girls in swimsuits on the pants. The dominantly white pants are balanced out with a grey and black shirt up top and a black bottom section of pants.
Our next look reveals our model wearing a pair of colorful Asics arriving with pops of yellow/gold with colorful socks. While all of that attention is happening on his feet, a white-and-black palette is embraced for the rest of the outfit: all-whites shorts, a dominantly white patterned Nike t-shirt and a dominantly black snapback with pops of white.
Next up, our model is wearing a white Diamond Supply Co. tee with matching tiffany diamond colored kicks to continue the aesthetic. The pants round out the whole outfit as the texture and distressed look of his light denim complement his shirt and shoes.
And for the last look, the model is rocking a light-grey Alife pinstripe tee paired with light grey joggers with black accents. This look is important because although it’s not white, it’s a lighter consistent shade.
As the low temperatures from Winter are slowly fading, there is a glimmer of warmer days on the way. With that comes an opportunity for more light and airy looks to infuse into your wardrobe. We’ve put together a couple of looks for you to get inspiration from — and it all starts with the tops.
The first look pairs a black short sleeve graphic tee with grey Hustle Gang shorts—which are both understated in color—while clean and classic Nike’s are worn down below. The second look pairs a white adidas long sleeve shirt with white Fairplay joggers, while the look is capped off with black and red Asics to provide some color.
These looks will take you a little bit closer to the days that we’re all looking forward to.
The Nike Roshe Run series has been a favorite in the sneakerhead community for its versatility and classic silhouette. In the latest Roshe edition, a suede build is paired with a leather toebox along with a black leather Swoosh. The Light Ash Grey color scheme is accented by Nike’s signature Volt accent on the lining and tonal laces along with a white midsole. The Nike Roshe Run Suede is a pleasant departure from its usual mesh-based look while giving runners and lifestyle wearers the chance to express their style in one more stylish way.

The Air Force 1 Low “Light Ash” colorway features a grey-based leather upper with snakeskin detailing on the toe box and side panels. The snakeskin is raised, textured, and darker than the light ash grey nubuck that surrounds it. The snakeskin is designed perfectly to mesh with the classic Air Force 1 silhouette. To round it out and make it a complete package, the upper sits on top of a white midsole, while the outsole reverts to Light Ash. Integrate snakeskin and nubuck just like this and you’ve got a premium feel.
