Going from the lab to fab, looking as fly as a flying ant, is as simple as updating some of your wardrobe staples. Case in point, ugly sneakers (I prefer the term ‘funky sneakers’) started trending this year, and they haven’t stopped yet, but you don’t have to go full-on funk to get the look. Your basic athleisure sneak with some contemporary detailing gets the job done. Take off your lab coat, throw a moto-jacket over your favorite ant-print tee and you’ve got a look that takes you from the classroom to, well, pretty much anywhere. (And there’s fabulous vegan options here, too). A classic and comfy hoodie isn’t just a practical additional layer; it lends your aesthetic a casual cool vibe, especially when paired with denim in a modern, slim (but still not skinny), cut. So, update your basics and fly on in style.
