Menswear Streetstyle

Men who slayed off the runway

It’s a truth universally accepted that runways tell only half the story. The real stuff is on the streets; social media sensations rubbing shoulders with high end designers.. you know how it is. Menswear evolves a little slower than womenswear, which is why when we see men pulling off deconstructed clothes or ugly-cool shoes, we have to talk about it. 

We’ll start easy. The combination of a light chevron print shirt, ripped jeans and floaters (welcome back, babies!) is perfect for 100 degree weather. That bright orange man-clutch is giving us major summer vibes and we can’t look away.1456x1456--1

Don’t shy away from basic outfits in neutral colours. You can always elevate it with a statement…. Or four. Contrast your daily sneakers with funky printed socks, add some bling with rings, embrace the Migos vibe with vintage golden rimmed glasses, throw on a hat and there you have it- the perfect ensemble to stand out. 1456x1456-9

This man could be the poster child for “Understated but Fashionable” with the basic white tee and sneakers set off by printed-botts and a leather tote (please don’t hate on the man-purse my dudes- it’s on trend and honestly us women are sick of lugging around your stuff) 1456x1456-10

10 points to the man in a Kurta and cropped joggers! Who’da thunk this combination would work this well? And anyway, tone on tone never fails to disappoint.1456x1456-2-

Don’t underestimate the “shacket”- it’s bang in the centre of the shirt-jacket spectrum and perfect for layering. Ditching skinny botts for cuffed joggers made the outfit. 1456x1456-6

Look at this guy… Pulling off the nautical vibe without stripes! The classic blue-white combination and the neckerchief might have something to do with it.


Pop into a deconstructed jacked when you want to look a bit left of centre. If you go further you’ll find yourself in neon socks and floaters. The only way you’re gonna pull this off is if your entire outfit comes with a lining of confidence. 1456x1456-8

A double breasted jack is pretty basic. So is denim. But a double-breasted denim jacket!? On printed joggers? And white sneakers!? AND A POCKET SQUARE!? This amalgamation of on-trend fashion elements comes straight from the labs.1456x1456-5

Don’t worry boys, we haven’t forgotten about the bedrock of menswear. Well tailored suits will never go out of fashion, extra points if you do it differently… for example bright red contrasting sneakers and a man-clutch (& I hope that flower is for me!)


We love a good pair of dual-toned penny loafers… but that wasn’t the first thing we noticed in this outfit. A tie that matches the blazer in aqua colours distracted us a bit.1456x1456-3- (1)
