Converse X Anteprima

Anteprima, the Italian fashion brand, is working with Converse.

Converse has teamed up with Italian Fashion Brand Anteprima to create a special edition collection. We are starting to see more of these collaborations come to fruition between sport based brands and high end fashion brands. Converse, who has been known to create high fashion cross collaborations in the past, has been fitting very well in both the casual ready to wear as well as the couture and custom fit crowds. This collection looks really cool!

Let’s Talk About Joggers

Okay, first things first. Joggers, they’re here to stay. There are a lot of people that are putting down joggers, but we don’t feel that way.

Joggers go especially well with Chucks. Here’s how to do it:

Low Tops
If you are sporting the low tops, go with no show socks or no socks at all. This is the best way to show off your freedom of the wind flowing past your ankles. This works for both guys and adventerous girls.

High Tops
If you are wearing high tops, socks can be a bit longer since you probably won’t be catching a glimpse. Sport high tops, leathers, or Chuck Taylor II with your joggers. It gives you that rugged look and depending on the joggers you have, maybe even a bit of casual vs professional mixed in. Trust us, it works!

Go for it! And let us know how it looks by showing us some Twitter and Instagram love.
