Luxury Laneway: The 4 Solid Bowling Fits to Buy Right Now
After Gucci and Valentino released designer bowling shirts in recent collections, streetwear labels including Amiri, Palm Angels, Nasaseasons, and Off-White were quick to take the motif to the next level. Instead of retro patterns and solid silks, picture campy prints, graffiti graphics, and neon hues.
And while a bowling shirt (marked by its lightweight fabric and exaggerated collar) is a staple to the look, we’re not done there. Pair with track pants that show off your illest athletic socks and the perfect kicks. Our favorite looks are more Pharrell than Uncle Buck, with loose fits and hits of color. Here’s how to rock them.
A colorful card pattern lends a campy twist to your classic black button down. To avoid too many clashing hues, pick one color to highlight in the rest of your look (we went with blue). Wear it buttoned up with velour track pants for an unexpected ’90s flavor. Finish the look with a sick pair of knit socks and a structured bowling skater slip-on.
Pattern on pattern puts a high-fashion stamp on your classic bowling outfit. The trick to looking daring and not like you got dressed in the dark is to vary the size and type of design. We love this large-scale fishnet print from Off-White with track pants in a classic plaid. Keep materials consistent, like silk on silk, for more continuity.
Red Hot Streak
The fashion set loves a good monochrome look, especially in the-moment primary colors. To pull it off, style a red bowling shirt (feeling this card print) with structured sweats and vulcanized sneakers. To tone down the all-red look, try wearing your button-down open over a white undershirt á la Vince Vaughan in Swingers. Unzip the bottom of your sweatpants to reveal some sick designer socks. Nerd chic.
A killer artist collab makes a classic shirt feel utterly relevant. We love this Heron Preston design with Robert Nava artwork, the perfect match for chenille track pants. Finish with multicolor sneakers—a rubber toe cap and logo laces look ready for the lanes, minus everyone else’s foot sweat.
The bowling style trend strikes the perfect balance between sport and street. You’ve never felt so comfortable while looking so good. Now that’s 300.
