Talking about Oxygen x Billboard Collaboration last week, here’s my take on their collection, a buena mano of a 2 part LookBook Series for Oxygen x Billboard Collection. This is quite challenging to inject with my styling since it’s way too modern for a Laid Back kid like me but guess what! I figured out a trick on how to revamp your laid back look whit a minimum effort 😀
I’ve already blogged about my other Errand Look “Scout” before, but that’s best on normal season, for extremely hot summer (or day) I always wear this combo hahaha and Im glad I fused it with Oxygen‘s latest collection and made it blog worthy to talk about.

Get That Urban Feel!
As the Oxygen x Billboard collection has this Urban and very NewYork-ish vibe, I decided to match my Errand Look to this feel hahah make it “Makati-ish or BGC-ish” kinda look as I stroll and hover up and down the sky scrapers of Metro Manila’s Business District, siempe! in style!
Okay, so here’s what I did, I stare closely to my usual wear and realized that the elements are relatively the same as the urban ish look. here are 2 elements I noticed under my observations:
Black or White?
Im not sure if “Monochrome” could be the right term but the Urban Look mostly contain All Black or White, or even Black and White. Since I usually wear Black pants or shorts, all I did was wear any white shirt and White Shoes. The White Shoes actualy builds up this look, also it gives the final packaging, for example, in this look, I decided to keep the laid back in me, so I chose to wear Chucks, but if you want to look active, more Kanye look, go for the sporty White Running Shoes and the likes.
Plain or Discreet
The Urban look tend to be more minimalist in Prints, Patterns or Whatever Texture you want to incorporate with, as long as it’s not too loud, then it’s in! just like this latest Chucks Limited Series #ChuckTaylorAllStarWoven or check their Philippines Facebook page for more updates—click —> Converse Chuck FB Page 😀
as of now, that’s it, I’ll share another points or elements for a more Urban look on my next LookBook under Oxygen x Billboard
