How to Add Cheesy Stoner Gear Into Your High-Fashion Wardrobe

Sometimes weed cheese is steez.

Sometimes a little cheese is good. And while a lot of ‘stoner’ clothes are over-the-top disasters and sometimes annoyingly culturally appropriated blobs, there are still a few pieces that you can incorporate your wardrobe that add a little bit of high-end whimsy. Dare we say that weed socks are making a comeback?

The Subtle Tee

Weedy shirts don’t have to be dipped in Rasta-colored tie dyes. There are plenty of mellow and weed-positive shirts that don’t look like Grateful Dead vomit. A chill shirt goes a long way – you can dress these up or down, depending on your mood and style, and well, they are ultra comfortable cus they are cotton tees! Nothing beats the perfect tee, and these will give you statement options without looking like an obnoxious cliché. Tees we like: Blunts & BurritosPot LeafSailor Stripe.

The Stoner Dad Hat

Here’s why dad hats are the best: They are soft and cozy and comfortable. Here’s why weed hats are the best: Weed is pretty cool. So if you are down to get on this (maybe silly) dad hat trend, do it right and show your pot support with a hat that isn’t covered in psychedelic pot leaves or cartoon red stoner eyes. It’s quite possible, especially with an understated dad hat, to say you like weed without looking like you are a misguided college freshman. Dad hats we like: Smoke Me OutLeafSmiley Face.

The Oversized Weed Hoodie

Nothing says comfort, style, and happiness like a big, oversized hoodie. Think of this weed hoodie as your statement piece for the day, so be sure to opt for something loud, wacky, and/or weedy whimsical. The weirder and louder your hoodie, the quieter the rest of your outfit should be. (Or at least in theory, because whatever, you can be as fucking loud you want to be). But if you’re trying to keep it high-end and less Juggalo, try pairing your sweatshirt with jeans and your hippest shoes. These hoodies speak for themselves, so there’s no need to add on with this one. Hoodies we like: Bill NyeSmiley FaceMiley.

The Green Accessories

If you’re not into too much kitsch and you liked to keep your shit muted, try bulking up your cute, weedy accessories. This way you aren’t flaunting a loud Miley shirt at a business lunch. Instead, you can slyly incorporate your love for pot in other, small (but loud) ways. Try a pin on your lapel or a phone case – because seriously you could spend a day shopping online for insane/cute/obnoxious/high-end weedy phone cases. And, never, ever, under any circumstances, underestimate the power of a marijuana-inspired bag. People love those, and we bet you will too. Accessories we like: Weed League PinRX Phone CaseWeed ClutchPot Ring.

The Classic Cheesy Weed Sock

The key to wearing loud and obnoxious weed socks is to keep the rest of your outfit really toned down and monochromatic. Think all denim with a pop of weed sock. Or a plain tee with cut offs and tall weed socks if you’re into making a statement. The idea here is that you want to embrace the cheese – but not overdo your whole outfit. And also, despite rumors, weed socks are cool and are coming back in a big way. Weed socks we like: Huf.
