TJ is Anna’s older brother, and already this guy knows what kind of style he likes, and what he doesn’t like. His dad, Tom, told me once that he sometimes has to have his son scale back his exuberant style so as not to distract others at school! Like that’s a bad thing? Here we see my good-looking godson sporting a cold-weather, school appropriate outfit that is fashion- forward in its use of pattern and color. Starting with the dark-wash slim-cut jeans by 1969, we added in a black-and-blue striped graphic t-shirt by Shaun White. All young dudes like this one enjoy wearing the famous snowboarder’s clothing line. What makes this look into fashion, however, are the gray sneakers from TJ’s own collection and, of course, the awesome abstract-patterned, black-gray-and-white ski jacket by Zero Xposur that I found at one of our Goodwill stores. I absolutely love the pop of the yellow zipper against all the other darker tones in this ensemble. TJ is not only ready for school as the temps drop, but he’s also ready for the runway in this sophisticated take on sportswear for the pre-teen set! TIP: Basic items + trendy items = fashion success!
