Streetwear has recently experimented with a new direction, bringing a fresh, modern style to the usual designs you see from sportswear-inspired brands. Originally consisting of tracksuits and graphic printed t-shirts, streetwear was created for the skateboarders and surfers of the world. This is something that has changed as the style has continued to evolve. Becoming more inclusive, recent streetwear styles has infiltrated the likes of the luxury market as well as high street brands, meaning more sophisticated designs have been emerging.
The latest menswear fashion shows have showcased an affinity for a grown-up, amalgamation of trends that mean anyone can integrate streetwear into their wardrobe, even if you’re not a fan of the stereotypical baggy t-shirts and tracksuit bottoms. Modern streetwear has become so much more than that, and our new arrivals are the perfect way to demonstrate it.
Streetwear isn’t just about wearing sports-inspired pieces; back the 70s, it was all about Adidas tracksuits and sneakers, but now you can incorporate these pieces with your existing, smarter wardrobe.
Invest in clothing that takes inspiration from streetwear trends, such as our Distressed Denim Jacket; with prominent distressed detail, it’s a definite nod towards urban streetwear, but still incredibly wearable. Its traditional denim jacket design means you’re able to wear it anywhere, for any occasion.
Another popular style is the overshirt. Often worn open over a t-shirt, it creates a smart appearance with a cool edge; finish with your favourite trainers or desert boots depending on the occasion. Our Army Overshirt comes in two colours, grey or thyme, and looks great paired with black jeans for a more grown-up look with just the right amount of detail.
You’d be mistaken for thinking that shirts always have to be super smart and formal. Our Squared Plaid Shirt is designed to be worn untucked, with an ombre effect and check print giving it a more relaxed appearance. Still perfect for meeting the in-laws, but still giving you the chance to display your personal style.
Jeans are a staple of every wardrobe, but making them look smart can sometimes be a challenge. Investing in a black pair will instantly upgrade your look; our Johnny Skinny Stretch Jeans offer subtle distressed detail and a fitted design that can be easily worn with any of the above shirts or jackets.
So, for the latest smart streetwear essentials, keep your eye on our new arrivals and get your hands on new clothing while you can!
