Topman: Our Favorite Denim for Him
As many of you who have been following us for awhile may have noticed, Topman is one of my favorite brands to rock on a daily basis. You can imagine how excited I was when they asked me to partner with them and Stylinity this season! Head to the bottom of this post for more of our thoughts on collaborations/sponsored posts, but for now let's get into the good stuff!
From classic, skinny denim to tapered and bleached jeans, Topman emerged as one of my favorite brands because of their wide range of styles and fits. While my physique is fairly slim overall, I still carry a good amount of muscle mass from my track and field days which can make it difficult to find jeans that fit just right (curse those thunder thighs!). With Topman offering so many different size/style variations, I've been able to hone in on the perfect fit for me. I really like the stretch slim and stretch skinny styles. I've found with a lot of stretch denim out there they can feel kind of cheap and over time don't hold up very well. However, the Topman stretch styles have held up nicely for me over the years and they come with a price tag that won't break the bank, even if you pick up a few pairs.
Jennifer and I had a blast working on this shoot together! Two reasons. We headed down to the Loop early Sunday evening. It's pretty dead in the Loop at that time so it felt like we had the awesome backdrop of Chicago all to ourselves. And secondly, for this first look, I went a little outside of my normal style choices and I'm super glad I tried something new! I pulled some style inspiration from my musical hero Jack Antonoff and Stranger Things 2 bad boy, Billy Hargove. I'm definitely going to be tapping into more of these late 80's / early 90's vibes this spring.
For my second look, I went back to a more classic style with the black washed, stretch slim jeans. When it comes to every day jeans, these are my number one go-to for a classic, tailored look that is still super comfortable.Switching easily between classic to trendier, street style looks is one of the reasons why Topman has become a staple of my closet.
A quick note about collaborations / sponsored posts. We want you to know that while we were compensated for this post, we only work with brands we truly have come to love and enjoy ourselves.
