Hello, and welcome to another fashion segment! If you’re looking for some styling tips and tricks, we gotchu. 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? With all the Dunks that Nike dropped in the last 2 years, you probably own a pair. Especially if you ran NSB on release days!
So since you already have at least one pair, you might as well style them right! Although the Dunk is a pretty simple shoe, you gotta mind how you coordinate colors and what styles to wear. But don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for! 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’!
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, skinny/straight 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.
Finally, for those days that you don’t feel like doing anything on, 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 creative 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 hooded jacket would add some flair to the fit! The same applies for 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 a perfect choice. After all, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication or whatever.
Some More Styling and Fitting Tips
Now that you know how to style Dunks, there are a few pointers that you should always know! First, make sure that your Dunks are the right size, and you can follow this simple guide to get it right:
- Nike Dunk: Half size down for a snug fit. True to size if you want it roomy.
- Nike SB Dunk: True to size for a snug fit. Half size up if you wanna get the roomy fit.
The second tip is to always make sure the outfit you’re wearing reflects your personality and style. In other words, if you feel like a certain hoodie would look better than a tee here, then go for it!
And the last tip, but definitely not least, is to always be confident! If you ain’t rockin’ that fit in confidence, it’ll show. So always show up and you’ll look like a star even in a pajama with Dunks! After all, style is subjective, and what you might find really dope, others would think is very lame. But with our simple guide, we’re pretty sure everyone will envy you with your Dunks and looks! Godspeed 🔥
