NYFWM SS18 STREET STYLE
By Sam Higgins, 13 July 2017
To New York, our final destination on the menswear leg of the SS18 fashion circuit. Our latest look at next summer’s style predictions hasn’t disappointed, however, it’s been the streets surrounding the shows where the strongest 'fits are found. Here's our round-up of Big Apple brilliance.
Guy here is not for switching out his wintry, khaki overalls for more summer-ready dungarees – and for good reason. It's cos he knows all too well that he can simply drop the top half down, wrap it around his waist and earn extra style points by showing off a white, long-sleeved graphic tee underneath. Strong.
The slightly querying look on this fella’s face, along with his choice of a bold summery shirt, makes us think there’s a strong possibility that he’s only now realising his flight took him to New York and not the South of France. You’re all good pal – that strong half tuck and those baggy trews will help you fit in nicely.
Welcome to SS17-style 101 with your guest lecturer, this chap right here. Oversized, longline threads aren’t on his sartorial syllabus – instead, his first teaching of the new semester is 'the tuck'. All you'll need to start is a graphic tee: the more obscure the imagery, the more idiosyncratic your look. Then, a pair of neat grey trousers creates a smart take on streetwear, while a black belt breaks things up subtly. His style lessons are so good it seems he's already busy tutoring over the phone.
The alternative to slipping out of the top half of your boilersuit is to opt for a seasonal co-ord. Like this guy showed with his teal shirt-and-trousers combo, doubling up on hues will not only make your 'fit more versatile but also easier to piece together. All you need to throw on is a fresh white tee underneath and a pair of simple plimsolls. You can now wait nonchalantly with your hands in your pockets for the crowds to inevitably flock.
