7 STYLES TO CONSIDER FOR 2017

By Kasia Hastings, 7 January 2017

In 2016 we were inundated with fresh sneaker dropsnew hues, and more tour merch than Kanye could sell at Madison Square Garden, but with a new year comes stylish new possibilities. So, we’re putting forward seven styles for you to consider copping in 2017.

70s loungewear 

Fashion’s obsession with all things 70s is nothing new, but a little less worn out are the era’s steeziest leisurewear looks. This year, try track jackets, strong graphics and a more tonal colour palette for a nice retro reboot of your traditional tracksuit. Whether you’re already a committed fan, or looking to make a comfy style crossover, SS17’s 70s riff offers a more interesting way of wearing this sportswear classic.

Laceless trainers 

Last year’s big trainer hitters – the Air Presto, the Club C, the Sk8-Hi – all had laces, so for the next 365 days why not throw caution to the wind and wear kicks that are more sock than sneaker? A techy silhouette, slip-on design and soft knit upper make the Nike Sock Dart and adidas NMD City Sock the comfiest kicks you’ll wear all year.

Faux-fur coats 

For most of us (with the exception of Wiz Khalifa) faux-fur falls on the eccentric side of fashion, but with key menswear players like Gosha Rubchinskiy, Supreme and Kanye West including furry coats in their collections, now may be the time to get on board. Layer over a hoodie and keep your palette pared back to seamlessly work one into your winter arsenal.

The humble hoodie

You may or may not have noticed, but the hoodie has taken a beating over the last couple of years. It’s been distressed, deconstructed and distorted almost beyond recognition, so for 2017 we’re backing a more minimal approach. Ditch heavy logos, gothic fonts and floor-sweeping sleeves in favour of a simple, classic cut to give your comfies a cleaner edge.

Worker pants 

The majority of men won’t consider anything other than skinny jeans, but if you're ready to foray into wider-leg territory, then straight, worker-style chinos are the way to do it. Made popular by cult brands like Dickies and Carhartt, these utility style trews are a strong alternative to your favourite jeans or joggers. Wear them rolled up to show off an interesting sock situation and some solid kicks.

90s rugby shirt 

The 90s aren’t going anywhere, and if you were into last year’s long-sleeved tee revival, then a rugby top is the next natural progression. An original hip-hop favourite, Polo Sport overhead, quarter-zip shirts are a classic that have gathered cult status among streetwear aficionados. Try an original vintage style, or fresh incarnations from Stüssy or Obey.

Hair colour

Switching up your hairstyle will always freshen up your look, but add colour into the equation and you’ll really make an impact. Last year, key style players like Lil Yachty, Frank Ocean and Zayn Malik all hit the bleach bottle to give their cuts an added edge. This kind of colour isn’t about nailing a natural look, so go for icy blonde or blood red to create a cool, artificial aesthetic.
