Fashion is all about taking risks and Westbrook sure did take a risk when he walked the blue carpet in this look.

His outfit was completed with a pair of custom-made rainbow Nike Air Foamposite.


Leather was trending in the fall, and it carried over to the spring and summer. From the looks of it, leather will also be trending again in the fall. Leather tank tops, shorts, skirts, tee-shirts and crop tops are one of the hottest trends at the moment. Leather shorts can easily be paired with a dope tee-shirt and some cool sneakers. Bow Wow, T.I., Chad Johnson, LeBron James and Fabolous were all photo’d wearing leather shorts on various occasions.

K. Michelle’s ‘Around The Way Girl’ Look In Adidas & Timberland; ‘Rebellious Soul’ Drops Tomorrow


R&B songstress K. Michelle rocked her ‘around the way girl look’ in her latest Instagram flick. She wore a $68 Women’s Adidas Originals Firebird Track Hoodie and the matching $58 Women’s Adidas Originals Firebird Track Shorts. The ‘Rebellious Soul‘ singer completed her outfit with a pair of $180 Timberland boots which are available at Nordstrom. I was not able to find the exact hoodie and shorts that K. Michelle had on in the above pic, but below are a similar hoodie and pants. Are you feeling K. Michelle’s around the way girl look?

K. Michelle will release her debut, Rebellious Soul via Atlantic Records tomorrow (August 13). The 11-tracks R&B/soulful LP features the Pop & Oak-produced lead single “V.S.O.P. and I Don’t Like Me” which is in heavy rotation on urban radio. I like how K. Michelle used Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta as a platform to rebuild her music career and brand. She is very talented and can sing. I am rooting for her! Pre-order the LP on iTunes.
