Today, our talk is gonna be all about fashion! And this fashion segment is all about Nike Dunks. We already covered how to wear your Yeezys and Jordans like a superstar. But did you ever stop and think about how to style Dunks? The kicks became an important staple in every sneakerhead’s closet! And well, Nike has been pretty generous with us when it comes to Dunk releases and collabs.
Now, if you own a copy of NSB, then odds are you already own at least one pair of Nike Dunks. And when you decide to wear your kicks, you’ll naturally wanna look your best, hence this guide! From color coordination to the different style options, we’re here for all that. So, here’s the only guide you’re gonna need from now on to look cool as heck!
The ABC of How to Style Dunks!
Okay, so Dunks come in two cuts: high and low top. You’d think that each style would need different types of outfits, but you’re wrong! You won’t break the bank to find the right style because what works for one, works for the other. Now that we got the main issue off of our back, let’s get stylin’!
Color Coordination Can Make or Break a Fit
Before we get into the actual styling, we gotta talk about colors. You could actually wear an incredibly cool assortment, however, the color could ruin a perfectly good fit! So, if you wanna play the game right, here’s how to style Dunks with colors. For example, if your Dunks are pretty colorful, you can go for less popping colors to direct the attention to the kicks. But well, if you like your flashy moments, you can go all out with the colors! On the other hand, if you’re wearing a basic shoe like the Panda Dunks, you can rock a dramatic outfit.
The first thing people will check when you rock any type of shoes is what you’re wearing on top. So when you rock your Dunks, you gotta keep in mind that the bottoms matter. So first things first, denim jeans should be an everyday staple. But if you don’t feel like denim, cargo pants are the way to go. Whether they have cuffs or not, that’s totally up to you. However, if you ask us, we’d go for cuffs with the lows and a straight cut for the highs. But that’s just us ya know.
Finally, for those days that you don’t feel like doing anything, sweatpants will go perfectly with Dunks. It doesn’t matter what cut you’re wearing, it’s just effortlessly a W. And if you’re not digging pants, shorts or biking shorts can give you some more creative freedom. How? Just throw in a pair of long socks and you’re good!
PS: You gotta be mindful of the socks you’ll wear. If you’re wearing a colorful pair of Dunks, better go with black or white or just plain socks. However, if your Dunks are simple, you can totally get inventive there!
You know, tops aren’t a huge problem if you know how to style Dunks with the bottoms. But if you’re going for jeans, a simple T-shirt would do. And if you wanna be a lil extra, maybe a flannel shirt or oversized jacket would add some flair to the fit! The same applies to cargo pants, because who wouldn’t rock these any day?
On the other hand, if you’re going for a more chill look by wearing shorts or sweatpants, we gotchu. Instead of a tee, you can go for a light sweater especially if the weather is on the colder side. And if that doesn’t float your boat, going for a classic hoodie is the perfect choice. After all, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication or whatever. And when it comes to fit, you can either go oversized or regular, depending on how you’re feeling.
