Cardi B Had ‘Mixed Feelings’ About Not Performing At The Superbowl

When Cardi B was asked to perform at the halftime show for this year’s Superbowl, she declined because she wanted to support ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who hasn’t played in the league since he began protesting against racial injustices against minorities by kneeling during the national anthem. The decision wasn’t an easy one to make and she said she had mixed feelings about turning down the offer.

“My husband, he loves football. His kids play football. It’s really hard for him… He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can’t go to the Super Bowl, because he’s got to stand for something,” the former Love & Hip Hop star told the Associated Press.

The “Money” rapper also said she sacrificed a lot of money by deciding not perform.

“You have to sacrifice that,” she said. “I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform. But there’s a man who sacrificed his job for us, so we got to stand behind him.”

The Bronx spitter said she hopes that this protest will help spark a change and bring light to the injustices that Kaepernick was spotlighting but she is doubtful.

“We got an arrogant president, and the racism right now has been reborn,” she said. “They feel mighty brave nowadays. When Obama was around, I just feel like they were praying on the day when his eight years was over. A lot of jealousy. When they see (how) the choices they made due to racism has affected the country, that’s when things are going to start changing. Right now, they don’t want to accept that their decision has affected the country.”

Happy WIWT Stereotypical Dappered™ Look Day…

Dappered.com

If imitation is the best form of flattery, we were pretty flattered around these parts when a group of guys on Threads decided to create a Stereotypical Dappered Look Day. As can be seen on the WIWT thread, several readers dressed the part, and even found (or built) brick walls to pose in front of. We thought that was pretty damn cool.

 

In Review

Dappered.com

Over the years Dappered has reviewed a lot of offerings in the affordable men’s style arena, and 2018 saw the addition of several reviews, including the Target Goodfellow Keanu single monk (as seen above), selvedge denim from Amazon, a Timex x Todd Snyder collaboration, the Flight Bag from Saddleback, and more. We hope you guys find these reviews informative, and if you ever have an idea for a review send an email to joe@dappered.com.

Outfit Formula: Pattern Mixed

Mixing patterns in an outfit is an acquired taste, and some versions of the look are more subtle than others. The more hectic and maximal versions clash in colour, pattern size and pattern type, which is in itself a trendy look. Combining bold, bright and big patterns in different colours can clash to such an extent that they create visual harmony. Subtle pattern mixes are tonal, neutral, and the patterns are usually small. Either way, there’s a pattern mixed look for each of us.

I thoroughly enjoy wearing and looking at pattern mixed outfits, and like almost every version of the vibe. Sometimes my pattern mixed outfits are maximal, and sometimes more subtle depending on my mood. To refresh your memory, here’s how to pattern mix if you’re trying the vibe for the first time. Here’s how to do pattern mixing lite. There are four patterns that are easiest for pattern mixing, and here is something for advanced pattern mixers.

Some pattern mixed looks to get those creative juices flowing:

1. Stripes & Florals

Combining a simple and small scale geometric pattern like a gingham or stripe with any floral is compelling. The cream and black in both patterns here are what allow the eye to rest and pull the look together. The black bag further complements the outfit.

VIVETTA Henning Floral Trousers

2. Chevron & Dots

It’s effective to combine a quiet pattern (the dots) with a loud pattern (the chevron). Polka dots are generally easy to pattern mix with when they’re two-toned, small, and subtle. Here the black in both patterns is what pulls the look together. The blonde hair of the model picks up the cream in the top, while the silver boots pick up the metallic in the skirt. The eye can rest because it can see colour repetition.

3. Spice it Up

Wearing two busy patterns in the same palette creates hectic harmony. Here there’s almost a positive and negative pattern effect that works well. The colour-blocking on the lower legs of the pants creates a third pattern, which is quite jarring. But the jarring effect is grounded by the black boots that complement the black of the colour-block.

Scotch Soda Floral Color Block Trousers

4. Checks & Florals

The floral and check patterns are big, but not awfully bright. The low contrast of the buffalo check makes it just about pass for a false plain instead of a pattern. The hues of the check are repeated in the floral which makes them gel. The cream boots further strengthen the cream in the patterns which unifies the components. The unexpected blush bag is delicious.

ACNE STUDIOS Checked Felt Coat

5. Tartan Squared

Both tartans are neutral and earthy. The geometric repetition as well as the white and black present in both tartans are what bind the patterns together. The white top matches the white in the patterns. The black boots match the black in the pattern and bookend the model’s hair. The effect is a very friendly clash because there is enough common ground and repetition between the elements of the outfit.

ROKH Oversized Tartan Gabardine Trench Coat

Who else likes to pattern mix? I’m looking forward to seeing lots of pattern mixed outfits on the forum.
