It’s the era of streetwear, That’s what all the blogs and stylists say. Couture climbs a rung down the ladder, and it’s Hip making the trends at the moment.
Fashion runways and bazaar shows – it’s the season of bomber jackets and high-soled sneakers, bike pants and saddle bags. Hell! Vigil Abloh is the poster designer of Louis Vuitton.
On the streets of Paris, men wear bucket hats and in London, girls wear hoodies of bold and various patterns.
Fashion comes, and she goes. Seasons are like the moon, it waxes and soon after wanes. Not back home though.
Streetwear has always been the fashion. Afro is street; it is unsaid, but principled in our rough jeans and combat shots, in the maxi vests and military-style sneakers.
Now the fashion shows and vogue critics have caught on. And beige is the new red. Bold patterns are the new tailoring. And Off-white becomes the new Chanel.
But the best part of this season: Reinvention. Streets change and morph, what once was is made even better. Through it all, the streets are about being bold. If you can work it, wear it.
That’s Streetwear, and it has been a long time in coming. Heaven knows that for a fact. The Runways are just catching on though.

Nailing the look isn’t so much a case of exact science, it’s more a game of intuition, bravery and a dollop of good luck. Ease into it by layering an overcoat over a hoodie and sports jacket, or go one further by letting a roll neck creep out from under a crew or V-neck jumper. If the overall ‘fit looks like something that’d cause pub punters to spit out their pints, you’re probably doing it right.
Match with loose-fitting trousers and a logo hoodie; or pair with a tracksuit, dad cap and cross-body bag for best results.
Nailing this trend is all about getting your colours and styles right. Think dark, moody tones, aerodynamic cuts and plenty of technical materials and features. Or, to pull it off with little investment, dig out some camouflage pieces that have been knocking around for seasons and layering them up in new ways.
Happy Styling. #gostreet2019
