What’s Poppington: The Streets of Charleston

As we approach March, the weather in Charleston has finally started to hover around the mid 60’s and low 70’s. Charlestonians are shedding jackets for short sleeves and street style is quickly shuffling from Winter to Spring.

I’m a sucker for eclectic patterns so this fellow’s shirt snatched my attention immediately.

Julia: So what was the inspiration behind your outfit today? Could you tell me a little bit about your pieces?

Treshawn: Well my inspiration behind my outfit was that cool but flashy feeling I always feel. My grandfather is also African so I decided to bring channel some of that with my shirt and my beads.

T: I actually got my shirt from the women’s section at Goodwill. Instead of a women’s shirt or a men’s shirt I turned it into a Trey’s shirt.

J: How would you describe your usual style?

T: I would say subtle and flashy. I like to play around until I find two colors and then expand on them. Its like telling a story.
