Happy Friday, lovies! 🤪
After the weirdest holiday week ever, I'm finally checking back in on the blog to bring you a new series all about my favorite summer colors that keep your style cozy and cute. The first hue on the spectrum is a rising fave: Generation Z Yellow. 🍯 Scroll to peep the classic t-shirt you need for the bright summer days ahead!
Streetwear has never really gone out of style, but since the resurgence of '90s fashion, iconic brands like Kappa, adidas, Umbro and Champion are back in the fashion spotlight something serious. In addition to streetwear brands making a comeback, logomania has resurfaced from the early 2000's to create the perfect storm fit for a hypebae. So if you're looking to channel your inner Sporty Spice, searching the online shelves at AKIRA is a great place to start.
OK so let's take a break to talk semantics. You may have heard about 'Millennial Pink' 💗 making major buzz in pop culture only a few years ago. But if you stay up on your generational terminology, you know that millennials (like myself 💁🏾♀️) are not the youngest generation to watch anymore. Over the last two years, the rise of Generation Z has brought a new appreciation for other bright colors to the forefront. Before you knew it, yellow became the color, especially for those showered in melanin. And now, here we are SHININ' UHKAY?!
IT WAS ALL YELLOW
