You probably know Megan Ann Wilson better as @shegotgame, but there is even more to this brilliant stylist, personal shopper, and writer than a catchy Twitter handle. Wilson has styling credits from athletes, such as former New York Yankees pitcher David Cone, and Phoenix Suns forward Wesley Johnson. With a passion rooted in sports, her unique ability to fuse high fashion and leisure has caused her clientele to grow exponentially with no end in sight. Wilson has a strong voice in sport style, which she has lent to various media outlets (NBC Sports, Yahoo! Sports, etc.), and an undeniable work ethic that has seen her company expand to great heights in less than two years. Her ability to dress others is well documented, but when asked about her personal style, Wilson reveals:
“I’m all about a mix of aesthetics and athletics. I would have to describe my personal style as gully chic (word to Jay-Z). I’ve always been a tomboy, so my signature style has evolved overtime from skate shoes and skirts into a mixture of sportswear, high fashion and borrowing pieces from the boys; similar to my personal brand. My influences range from early Wu Tang and Dipset to Dries Van Noten and Comme des Garcons. I wear what I love and don’t take myself too seriously. Great texture and camouflage makes me swoon, and I’m forever loyal to gold as my metallic of choice.
I’m a shoe person at heart. I often start, and end, an outfit with my footwear. Since I’m short (5’2 and a half), my shoes always change the scale of what I’m wearing, whether it’s a pair of wheat Timberlands, Nike Roshe Run Wovens or Barbara Bui snakeskin platforms. In terms of sneakers, I tend to buy retro silhouettes, like Jordans, tech running shoes and the occasional sneaker wedge.”
For the second installment of Decked Out Females,we asked Wilson to give us an idea of what one of her “gully chic” outfits would consists of. She presented us with the following:Vintage St. John’s Basketball Champion Jersey
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’m a huge basketball geek. I’m partial to Big East teams (RIP), and I love collecting unique NCAA gear. One of my style signatures is mixing sports gear with high-end pieces. So when I found this jersey scavenging a vintage store in Toronto, I had to grab it. I got it for only $5! I have a few friends that have hooped at St. John’s, and I’m obsessed with Champion jerseys. The color is great, and it’s almost mint condition despite being a screen print.Zara Zippered Pants
“I generally hate pants. You will rarely catch me wearing them because I can never find any that fit my short, but curvy stature. I’m so happy these Zara pants fit because I love the combination of texture and zippers. They’re like wearing a sexy alligator on my legs. They look great over kicks, Timbs or zipped all the way with a pair of heels.”Air Jordan 4 Black/Red
“The IV’s have always been one of my favorite Air Jordan silhouettes, however, I find them really difficult to fit. I usually wear a Grade School size 4.5 in Jordans but the IV’s cut into my toe box and heel. I passed on them because I try not to buy kicks unless they fit perfectly. When I was in Ottawa visiting my parents, I tried these on at local streetwear spot NORML, and it turns out I was likely wearing the wrong size in IV’s. These are a Grade School size 3. How embarrassing! At least I have my first pair of IVs.”Top Shop Tiger Socks
“Big cats are some of my favorite animals. So when I saw these socks at Top Shop, they were a no-brainer. Why wouldn’t you want tiger socks?”
