Fashion forward: How the Chicago Bulls are scoring off the court
We all know that Athleisure has been trending for quite some time now and whether you like it or not, it looks like it's here to stay (at least for now). However, there's been a specific trend — a sub-trend if you will — within this category, that I'm actually quite proud of (regardless of the fact that I have zero interest in sports). Are fashion folks now Bulls fans or are they just making a statement? Let's find out.

I've seen celebrities like Miley Cyrus wearing a Chicago Bulls jersey and I've seen Bulls references in a couple of street style photos, but that was the extent of it (besides the decked out looks we see on game day in Chicago...but that's more Bears than Bulls). Vogue brought it to my attention that it's more than just a few references — it's actually become a thing. Although I wouldn't necessarily call a jersey a fashion-forward look, I'm not hating what I'm seeing here.
If THAT doesn't make you want an entire Bulls wardrobe (or at least that badass jacket) regardless of where you're from, then I don't know what you want from me anymore.
Although the last thing I ever want to do is watch sports, I'm into this. Not just because I love the idea of Athleisure (and I'm not sorry) but it's cool to see Chicago represented in such a way. Of course, none of this would be made possible without Michael Jordan (he's probably one of five professional athletes I can name off the top of my head...and I can't be the only one) or those six NBA championships (the 90s were good to us), but I'm totally on board with seeing some more Chicago street cred in fashion. Now what do you think of this Chicago Bulls trend? Is it just a coincidence or do you think there's really a movement here?
