Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki is a fashion icon

The upside to not competing for the NBA title in May, is that you get a head start on your spring cleaning.

If you, like Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, happen to find something at the back of your closet and think to yourself: whoa, I’ve had this for at least 20 years– no sweat!

The 90s are back. (At least, I assume that’s why everyone’s wearing chokers, hair scrunchies, and platform flip flops again.)

Now, let’s break down this look:

Baggy jeans? Check.
Baggier turtleneck? Check.
Square-toed dress shoes? Oh yeah.

All Nowitzki’s missing is a pair of hoop earrings and a beeper.

The whole outfit is giving me Hotline Bling vibes.

I’m no fashion expert, but I say keep it. If it’s not cool now, it will be in about 10 years.

And, really, if Russell Westbrook can bring back acid wash and Dad jeans, you can do anything, Dirk.
