Why I Didn't Hate Dwyane Wade's Capri Suit

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

It was just so awkward — so I quickly looked away from the TV and hurriedly switched to another channel.

“Damn,” I thought to myself, “you always hear about Russell Westbrook having some mad style tastes, but Dwyane Wade just went to another level.  He literally wore a capri suit.  Not just capri pants — which is a fashion statement in and of itself — no, Dwyane Wade just wore a freaking capri suit.”

And you know what?  As much as I hate capri-anything, I’m kinda okay with the capri suit.  (Even if Charles Barkley is not).

I’m okay with the capri suits, and the florescent skinny jeans and basically anything that Russell Westbrook wears because even if their fashion “sense” isn’t exactly all there (or isn’t there at all) at least these guys care about how they look and what they wear.  And if you look at the progression of the NBA, especially in the context of its dress code, that’s an important lesson.

But the most important lesson (and the main reason why this capri-stuff doesn’t bug me) is that you should wear what you want to wear.  If you think pink suit jackets are super-fly, then wear one.  If you think the best thing since Wonderbread is a t-shirt that looks like somebody on shrooms designed it, then wear it.  And if you think a capri suit is hot, then wear it.
