Anybody dress young for their age? Vol. Im a grown a** kid - Page 2

post #31 of 99
im 23, lately i been dressing more casual. I had a dilemma similar to that of yours OP although no one addressed me on anything I just started feeling weird wearing snapbacks and stuff like that. I do occasionally throw one on during my bum days though and some sneakers, lounging around the house or just heading out for groceries.

I'm 26.... and on some days I still dress like I did when I was in HS. Sometimes I really wonder though about how I dress, I mean I don't LOOK 26... why should I have to start dressing like an older woman even though I don't look it? I got the arms to pull off wife-beaters and in the summertime dammit, that's what I'mma wear. And I'll keep on wearing them until I don't have the arms for them. I wear short shorts because I have the legs for them, so on and so forth.

Maybe things will change once I hit 30.

Today to go grocery shopping I had on jeans, navy blue speed turfs, and a flannel Polo hoody mean.gifmean.gifmean.gif

brightly colored kicks only look childish when you're wearing them with that same scheme all of your body. if i'm rocking some loud shoes, it's usually with a grey hoodie or a black tee or something. as for graphic shirts, only ones i really wear nowadays are band shirts and stuff like that d&g tyson tee except not 3 grand.

im 26 and work web dev at an office with 6 guys in an industrial part of town so need to dress in slacks and button up shirt like the downtowners do. not even jeans and polo. i can go in my pajamas if i wanted to.

my style right now is street casual topman ish with low black chucks rolled up chinos or jeans and ****. i look like a college kid but whatever. seeing suits is cool and all but i would be sweating my *** off everyday if i had to wear that ****.

I think "dress" for ages has changed quite a bit... I mean you can see somebody who is mid 30s, 40s that may still dress with the elements of a younger person (jeans, kicks, etc.) But how they put it together may be different (usually in how the clothes fit, and how the outfit is color coordinated, given that younger people are obsessed with "matching")

I look up to people like Pharrell who can dress like a child despite being 50 years old. So of course I do. That will never change. I turn 24 in May and currently taking the CPA Exam. So I only suit up for work.

I've always been a fan of Scott Disick's wardrobe, I find his taste (or stylist's taste) very appealing.

What's wrong with hollister? They got the most comfortable sweaters smokin.gif
post #57 of 99

Yeah I would say I do, at least compared to my fellow 30-something peers and friends.

I usually stick to the crew necks/hoodies, sweats/jeans and kicks combo. I'm not really a "loud" dresser so I think I can just about get away with it lol -I normally go for neutral colors (blacks, navy, greys etc.) with my clothing, and then add a splash of color via the kicks. I don't wear hats or the graphic tops with slogans ...or those god awful puns (Cop'n Jays) (I got 99 problems but my kicks ain't one) smh.

 

I think it's cool to wear what you want and be comfortable, as long as you can change it up when need be, it's essential to have some nice suits and dress shoes in your wardrobe to turn on the style once in a while.

This topic makes me feel old.

Part of being an adult is not caring what others think, and dressing how YOU want. There is no uniform for dressing like an adult.

Well in all reality you are still a kid @ 23 I was still in the whole SnapBack, graphic tees and SBs phase....however I feel like i did grew out of that, I still wear sneakers but I no longer wear graphic tees, rarely do I wear snapbacks, although once in a while I still do, my clothes have a different fit than they once did, brands like Gap/Jcrew/Zara replaced Diamond/C&C's/etc

More importantly I learned to chose the ocassions, remember there is a time and place, you look just as silly wearing a suit to go for a stroll around te park as you do wearing a graphic tee and a SnapBack to a nice dinner/event....when you can find a balance I believe that's when you've learned to dress your age, if you are passed 25 and the only thing you wear are the things you see kids in HS going crazy over, is time to grow up.
