THRASHER SP18Skateboarding is more and more popular every day, but not everyone has the talent to shred the streets.

Here’s how to do skater style like a model.

A logo white T-shirt and a pair of classic checker-print Vans can all be worn with some wild-care flair thanks to a striped ribbed knit dress. Not a bad way to lend some edge to your ensemble—whether you accessorize with a skateboard or not. Actually paraphernalia from Thrasher magazine, the Tee has become a rising staple in the real model-off-duty wardrobe of any catwalker worthy of their Instagram following.

Which brings us back to the question: How has a T-shirt best known by rail-grinding skateboarders become a wardrobe staple for a set of cool-girl models and on point for cool guys, too? We have some theories:

The piece comes with a certain skater reputation that’s synonymous with a youthfully rebellious distaste for authority and a vintage appeal.

There’s a roughed-up appeal to the skater lifestyle that seems contrary to that of the model, whom, you’d imagine, would put preserving her limbs at a precedent but which is part and parcel of the appeal for self-professed “bad girls” like Walton and Boling, and makes for something that can instantly add a dose of hardness to any polished ensemble.

“I started wearing a Thrasher tee once I finally felt confident enough to take to the streets on a board. I think you need to earn a few bruises before you can officially start wearing one,” says Vogue.com Style Editor Barsamian.

Yes, it’s time for you to join the skateboarding topic and be a skatewear OOTD expert on social media!

So get your butt moving before and live the dream!

Don’t try to be cool if you’re not Rastaclat cool

Congratulations to the class of 2018!

graduation 1

With graduations right around the corner, we know how hard you’ve worked, and we want to celebrate this milestone with you.

Here are some tips for you as you get ready for some adulting:

  1. Attend a Career Fair – Dress business casual (no jeans or sneakers) to make a good impression.
  2. Update Your Resume – Having a strong resume will help you avoid many headaches in your job search, and it’s one less thing to worry about going forward. If you don’t have career services available for graduate students on your campus, try connecting with alumni. Many universities have alumni networks set up to help students and new graduates connect with their more experienced peers. If you’re still not getting what you need, ask a career coach.17817564_209505839535950_5596644430263091200_n
  3. Share Your Research -Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a global phenomenon. If you haven’t heard of it, 3MT is a competition that gives graduate students three minutes and a single PowerPoint slide to explain their research to an audience of educated peers.
  4. Read – I know you already read all the time, but I’m talking about reading that’s related to you, your situation, aspirations and career plans.
  5. Attend Beyond the Professoriate (keep learning beyond the classroom)
  6.

What an Odd Future in 2018

Odd Future is much more than a hip-hop collective, it’s a dope clothing line with you in mind. And it’s founding member is everywhere.

Tyler, The Creator’s new track “OKRA” might be a “throwaway,” but there’s no doubt that the rapper could’ve included this on an upcoming project.

The booming bass looms throughout the verse is reminiscent of some of the his earlier work. However, the melodies on the hook change the tone of the song before jumping right back into the dark side.

29717978_214569099312483_2071753320053080064_n(1)

The song’s currently on YouTube, but look out for it to drop on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services tonight.

30079023_348354118989915_6696639177435381760_n

Hopefully, Tyler ends up dropping this on his upcoming tour dates. Like Coachella! In addition, he’s a headliner for Afropunk’s Brooklyn Festival. Keep your eyes peeled for that. Whether or not you can hit music tour, how about chillin’ with Odd Future styles?

Odd Future clothing includes T-shirts hoodies, and accessories that are sold through the collective’s online store, and are defined by their bold, playful motifs and use of eye-catching colors.

Silence is Golden Denim

Abraham Ruiz founded Golden Denim, “This is not a brand, this is a tradition,” in 2009. After high school, Ruiz decided to work instead of going to college. His family has been making jeans for 30 years and he thought to take that experience to a whole new level. At the time, there were not a ton of big brands in L.A. Ruiz scoped that opportunity and created Golden Denim. He cuts and sews the jeans himself along with a team of about 50-60 employees. Denim is not easy to sew, yet he is devoted to this company and spends hours at the factory. His designs are unique and the current trend of GD is the marathon pant. It is similar to Publish’s jogger pant with the cinched cuff.

golden_denim-the_sunny_floral_pants-2

The difference is that all of GD’s clothing is made in USA instead of China. Ruiz chose to do this to support American labor and nowadays almost everything is produced in China, setting him aside from the crowd. Ruiz works very hard and always sets goals for himself, making the success of his company possible. He figured that jeans are a California lifestyle and most people have a love for denim. Ruiz’s designs are creative with the color palette he uses and abstract prints. Complex Magazine named his rendition of the camo marathon pants “the best camo pants.” Golden Denim is expanding daily and is getting even more popular.
