There is no greater joy than seeing a favorite fashion trend from yesteryear swing back into style. This past summer I excitedly dusted off my box of NBA throwback jerseys and hit Wiz Khalifa’s Under the Influence of Music tour twice, once in a Michael Jordan Washington Wizards piece and again in a rare white Darius Miles Los Angeles Clippers authentic. My Instagram likes went through the roof.
Back in the early 2000s, a clean basketball jersey and a matching fitted hat was all you needed to turn heads, though I often remixed my outfit using the two headbands instead of a hat. It wasn’t often that I took fashion cues from Nelly—I swear I only wore band-aids when I had a cut—but, the double sweatband was my thing.
