Corn Elder talks about the importance of fashion in the NFL and tips on what to wear

Corn Elder is the true definition of perseverance. He sets out on doing what he loves, and achieves them in spite of what people say. At the University of Miami, Elder played football and basketball. But since football was his first love, he decided to commit only to football. Because the cornerback had two severe knee injuries, people question whether he’d be good enough. Elder has not only surpassed all expectations, but has worked his way into top shape for next season.

While he’s all business on the field, Corn shows his creativity off the field with his exclusive fashion style.

“I feel like it’s important to be fashionable in the NFL because you want to show off who you are outside of football. So many of us have great styles that people don’t get to see.”

Elder makes it clear that athletes can be trendy too. So what’s Corn’s fashion style like? “I have my own unique style… whatever comes to mind at the time.” Basically, it’s a little bit of everything. He pulls inspiration from magazines, videos, and people like Cam Newton, fellow teammate. “Cam also has his own style and I like that. He comes up with something new everyday.”

When asked about his favorite color to wear, Elder quickly responded with black. “It’s simple, and you can wear it with anything.” Of course, an outfit is never complete without accessories. Corn Elder admitted he can’t get enough of wearing jewelry. “Either a simple gold chain or a watch is all you need to take your outfit to the next level.”

As Elder prepares for the first round of OTA’s, he must stick with an intense diet and workout regime. “I like to wear Nike shorts and muscle shirts. It helps to wear form-fitting clothes so your body can get a good sweat. The material Nike has will help you to stay loose too while working out.” Corn Elder goes to the gym everyday and works out for two to three hours. But even with the football player’s hectic workout schedule, he still knows how to workout in style.

So what’s next for the star athlete? Well, he is working on several projects, including launching his own clothing line. “I think it would be a great idea to have unisex line that all genders can wear.” Elder plans to launch a casual line with basics, such as, hoodies, sweatshirts, and sweat suits
