“You better work!
Work, turn to the left
Work, now turn to the right
Work, sashay, shante”
It’s Day 4 of the 2016 New York Fashion (#NYFW16) Week and girl the gloves are coming off! No, I’m not talking about Kanye West’s post-apocalyptic-urban-chic-5th Element rags he previewed at the Yeezy Season 3 fashion record release party. I’m referring to the show you might have missed on Saturday. You’ve heard of the big fashion houses like: Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Hermes right? Morons! Their ill-fitting, high-priced ensembles only dream of taking the fashion world by storm the way John Calipari managed to do Saturday afternoon. Technically, it’s a look we’ve seen him rock before, but there was something more bold, more raw, about him this time around. The latest style/trend everyone’s raving about is the half-tucked dress shirt, paired with a business suit look, which is both comfortable and fashionable, perfect for the big game or simply a night on the town.
You can pair Cal’s sassy-signature style with both professional or weekend casual wear, making it a highly-versatile must-have look for the spring. The look combines simple un-polished sloppiness, with the commanding appearance of a man-in-charge. Human Resource departments will have to rewrite their dress code standards to accommodate the sure to be hip trend that will be certainly making its way into the cubicles, offices and boardrooms all around the country. Cal’s collection has already left the building and taken the country by storm.
As the goddess Anna Wintour says, “you either know fashion or you don’t”, so drop your microscopic scallop sandwich and premium, electrolye infused water and get on board. Tucking in both shirt tails is so last week.
