Getting Dressed With: Marisol Garcia’s Spring Style Philosophy for Effortless Dressing

Demonstrating how to wear the AJ1 High OG “Hyper Royal.”

For sneakerheads and streetwear enthusiasts alike, the crowning glory of any outfit is marked by a fresh pair of kicks. To showcase the transformative power of personal style and how it can be used as a tool for self-expression, Aljadid tapped Marisol Garcia, the newly-appointed Jordan Brand ambassador and the main character of the 4-part webcomic series titled, MariSole, to demonstrate how the AJ1 High OG “Hyper Royal” enhances her laid back approach to personal style. 

Created by Robyn Smith, Jamila Rowse and Jordan Dinwiddie, the webcomic chronicles the life and times of Marisol, a 16-year-old Dominican-American teen from Washington Heights whose love for sneakers knows no bounds. To get to know the trendsetting female, Aljadid sat down with Marisol in an exclusive interview centered around fashion and personal style. 

See how Marisol Garcia styled the AJ1 High OG “Hyper Royal” in the gallery below and head to the brand’s site to purchase the footwear seen here.

How do you use personal style as a tool for self-expression? 

I’m pretty quiet until you get to know me. But my brother and my friend Krissy say that, once I open up I can be goofy and crack a joke every now, and then. So I like to express my fun side by dying that streak in my hair, even though my abuela hates it.

I’m definitely inspired by how anime characters dress and the way they aren’t afraid to play with color. The way Billie Eillish dresses is really cool and my Tio Luis also inspires me. I like how he always kept it simple and cool, and let his Js do the talking as an expression of his style. 

What does your ideal outfit consist of? 

My ideal outfit consists of a pair of AJ1s (duh), a pair of baggy pants or shorts paired with a tank top that’s layered underneath a nice hoodie or sweatshirt. 

How has your upbringing influenced the way you dress or perceive fashion? 

My uncle would always take me to wait in line with him at sneaker shops all over New York. He always rocked the coolest hoodies and I learned a lot about old school streetwear brands like BAPE, Supreme and all of that stuff. 

What are some inspirational ways you would style the AJ1 High OG “Hyper Royal”? 

The Hyper Royals remind me of summer time. The light blue is super pretty and I would wear them to the park to watch my brother’s baseball games. It’s a colorway that I can dress up or down. 

How does the AJ1 High OG “Hyper Royal” allow you to stand out and use fashion and footwear as a non-verbal greeter?

I really think that this shade of blue is so pretty, but super chill at the same time. It’s really comforting.
