Nike and Stüssy go way back — designing coveted streetwear collaborations to this day that started back in 2000 with the Air Huarache LE. For this week’s A Perfect Fit, we’re showcasing the Nike x Stüssy NRG BR Crew Fleece in pink, a great statement piece for anyone who has embraced athleisure over the past few years.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a paradigm shift within fashion, as brands and consumers started focusing on comfortability as the world hunkered down at home. While much of the world is opening back up again, athleisure wear, which puts an emphasis on being comfortable while maintaining style, is still popular going into the fall/winter season.
The design of the Nike x Stüssy NRG Crew Fleece personifies comfortability. It features a slightly oversized design and is constructed with a heavyweight cotton fleece, ensuring you’ll be cozy while still looking your best. While the fleece is also available in gray, the pink colorway is a great accent piece that will complement the rest of the fit.
Over the past few years, the Fear of God Essentials series has been extremely popular for a younger generation of consumers. Mainline Fear of God reaches designer-level pricing, and the Essentials line offers more affordable, yet fashion-forward designs. The Fear of God Essentials Women’s Relaxed Sweatpants are the perfect pair of pants to complement the Nike x Stüssy crewneck. Like other pairs of Fear of God Essentials’ sweatpants, this pair features Fear of God branding on the left leg and crotch and elongated drawstrings.
If you’re into athleisure, these sweatpants are a no-brainer. They look great with all sneakers, and are great for your next work-at-home meeting, running errands, or being comfortable throughout your day-to-day.
The New Balance 550 has been everywhere over the past few years, but the shoe actually debuted in 1989 as a basketball sneaker. Its competition against Jordan brand and Reebok meant the sneaker didn’t take off at the time, disappearing into obscurity. Today, the 550 has experienced a resurgence as a versatile sneaker that can be dressed or down to any occasion.
The New Balance 550 is the quintessential athleisure sneaker, matching with the Fear of God sweatpants while letting the Nike x Stüssy crewneck be the statement piece of the fit.
Marc Jacobs has dominated 2022, partly thanks to the release of some great handbags, but also huge praise on social media sites like Instagram and Tik Tok. The Marc Jacobs Snapshot Camera Bag is a small crossbody bag featuring a color palette that matches the rest of this outfit. The bag features tan leather throughout the silhouette, a gold-accented double “J” logo, and black and white straps with “Marc Jacobs” written in light pink. The pink matches the crewneck, and the white and black accents throughout the bag perfectly contrast the gray Fear of God sweats and New Balance 550s.
While you wouldn’t typically associate the Marc Jacobs Camera Bag with athleisure, it’s a great statement bag that contrasts the rest of the fit.
In 2020, Nike and Stüssy teamed up for their third collaboration at the time, releasing a full-line of apparel for the spring/summer season. The Nike x Stüssy Bucket Hat in black was one of many items from the collaboration, and features Nike branding on one side, and Stüssy on the other. It’s one of the most iconic pieces from the collection, and a simple accessory that matches great with the other pieces of the fit.
You don’t need an expensive watch to look great. The Casio Vintage A168 features the classic Casio silhouette with an all-digital face. The entire watch is made with stainless steel and features gold accents throughout its whole silhouette. The watch features a 36MM case size, quartz movement, and a subtle, yet elevated design profile.
If you’re looking for a great statement piece for the low, the Casio Vintage A168 is a great, reliable watch that can be accessorized with a plethora of outfits.
