Aaaah, yes. Dads. No matter what kind of relationship you have with them, Dads are always and forever going to do what they do best — Dad. They’ll cook for you by ordering takeout or pizza, make terrible puns and crack the corniest jokes, and just meander about in the most Dad way possible.
And then of course, there’s the fashion. My own dad did have this taste for the most generic polo shirts, flip-flops, and really large denim walking shorts. (hey, it can get pretty hot and humid in my slice of the globe.) But I’m willing to bet my next lunch that if we did grow up above the equator, he’d probably be rocking an ensemble pretty much like this:
If you read my #FashionBlog, you know that #TshirtTuesday is my favorite day of the week. ??I can show off my fab style and get a little silly, too! ? Today I'm doing this edgy #StarWars-inspired tee I picked up at the #Smithsonian exhibit last month and pairing it with a sleek, flat-front short from the #DockersOutlet and a classic black #Gucci belt. Mixing discount with designer is a true art form and we all know I have mastered it! To complete this trendy Tuesday ensemble….yes you guessed it….my trendy #Tevas! They are chic, comfortable, and perfect for the warm weather. ? I hope you love this look as much as I do! My kids are pretending to be embarrassed but I know they're just jealous. ?? #OOTD #StarWarsStyle #FatherOnFleek #FashionBlogger #TshirtGoals #FunAndFab #ShortsSeason #HappyFeet #TevaTuesday #ButFirstCoffee ❤️☕️ #MorningFlow #CuteInTheKitchen #FashionDads via @alliestrack
Happy #EarthDay! ??? This is truly one of my favorite holidays as I am always one with nature. ? Today I am out for a leisurely hike in a chic but practical ensemble — #AmericanEagle #CargoShorts in a lovely #khaki hue paired with one of my trademark insect T-shirts. ???? You just can never have too many pieces when it comes to #CritterCouture! To tie everything together, I strapped on a #JumboFannyPack in a sassy camo print — I can keep water, snacks, and lip balm in this primo pouch AND any insects or interesting rocks and leaves I collect along the way! Hope you all are celebrating our planet in style like me! ?? #EarthTones #InTheZone #WhatIWoreInTheWoods #CargoCouture #InsectStyle #FannyPackFire ? #FashionDads via @jennireeblaque
and definitely this:
Greetings from #Vietnam!! ???? Traveling is a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and fashion of different countries. ?? So today, I'm testing out a look I like to call #VillageVixen –a sleek pair of navy flat front shorts and a beautiful brown tunic I bought at the local market in #Hanoi! I paired this chic ensemble with a pair of off-brand #Sperrys (I love a bargain buy!) and a traditional #conical hat which really ties everything together. I'll probably be mistaken for a local! ? #OOTD #AsianSensation #StreetStyle #TunicLove #TravelTrends #JetSetStyle #CulturalCouture #HappyHat #WeekendFlow #BoldLooks #FashionDads via @jw.co.uk
Welcome to Fashion Dads on Instagram, where “fathers on fleek” is the game. We’ve got all kinds of dads here. We’ve got the 100% coord dad.
We’ve got accomplished dads. (Taxes, yo. They can mess you up.)
We got activewear dads.
And dads who ain’t afraid of color.
Redefining ‘high-waisted pants”.
Tropical-pattered shirts are 100% dad-life.
Not even Kanye has his face on his luggage. That dude is missing out.
It takes a brave dad to experiment with textures.
and interesting footwear choices.
Socks. You gotta have socks.
Up your Fashion Dad quotient by simply tucking in your polo.
Or a laid-back tee, which is fine, too.
And sometimes, Dad can certainly get classy AF.
And isn’t afraid to chill with the cool kids.
And they embrace their Dad-ness 100%.
Being a father is easy, but it takes a special someone to be one of the fashion dads.
