It feels like something sports-related is always on in my apartment, meaning I've become somewhat of a fan by osmosis. The news late last week that broadcaster Craig Sager had been diagnosed with leukemia cast a sad light over the start of NBA playoffs, as the courtside regular has always been counted on to bring some fun to his reporting, namely by way of his wardrobe choice (search it on YouTube if you want proof). While the majority of commentators stick to navy or black, with the odd pinstripe thrown in, Sager is renowned for a closet full of zany prints and loud colors. Like, there's an entire Tumblr devoted to them.
And while plenty of ribbing ensues from whatever he decides to wear, it's always good-natured — and reminds me, as a fashion person tuning in, just how much fun can come from a cheerful outfit. In honor of the fantastic Mr. Sager, I did some browsing and picked three looks that are definitely for the brave. Whether you wear both pieces at once or warm up to it by incorporating a blazer here and a skinny trouser there, you're guaranteed to feel a little more fun.
