I love athletic-inspired clothing. Sporty, clean lines are so much fun to wear, especially in an urban way. This crewneck sweatshirt is from the exclusive Asos Black x Puma collection. I love the ombre trapezoid design that makes this piece so unique.
To keep the look sporty, I paired the sweatshirt with a NYC snapback from Forever 21, skinny chinos from Hollister Co., and finally some running shoes by Nike. Usually I would say no to wearing athletic shoes with an everyday outfit, but wearing sleek athletic shoes is a new trend that's catching on everywhere. You just have to know how to wear this footwear fad without looking like a geek. Urban-style outfits are absolutely perfect for this trend. Make sure to match one other accessory to your shoes to make the choice look deliberate and not like you ran out of shoes to wear.
I also thought it would be fun to wear this NYC inspired outfit in preparation for my New Year's in New York celebration. I'll be going to the city that never sleeps with my sister and my dad to ring in 2014!
