For the past few seasons, streetwear has dominated the sartorial scene.

INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
STYLISH GUYS IN TRACKSUITS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 1 September 2018
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: emergency orange is the shade to be seen in for AW18. This guy knows what’s up, choosing to don a full Gucci two-piece set in the hue and a pair of matching old-school shades. As his tracksuit is ultra-bright, he balances out his look with a classic white T-shirt. A pair of retro-inspired adidas Yeezy 700 Wave Runner creps round off his ensemble – notice the hints of emergency orange on the midsoles. One-tone transitional dressing, sorted.
If you’re a certified streetwear aficionado, you’ll know how to style a selection of pieces from numerous key brands at once. Kicking off his ensemble with a Supreme cap, this fella goes for a white Tommy Hilfiger track top paired with black bottoms. On foot, he rocks one of the most sought-after trainer silhouettes of the year: the Nike Air Monarch. And to finish off his road-ready look, he throws in a cross-body bag – a sartorial move that his mate clearly approves of.

An inadvertent streetwear favourite, Burberry’s iconic check print has been championed by niche British subcultures for decades. Rocking a pair of standout trackies that make use of the pattern, this street-styler keeps the rest of his aesthetic decidedly low-key. An oatmeal-coloured track top, black jacket, beanie and corresponding Converse trainers make for a nostalgia-ridden 90s-centric ’fit.
Graphic-print tees have enjoyed a moment in the spotlight this summer, so carry on the hype well into AW18 by going for a long-sleeved iteration like this chap. Using the detailing on his 032c top as a starting point, he opts for a vintage-inspired pair of adidas originals tracksuit bottoms in cherry red. Clean white NMD trainers from the brand and a pair of all-black shades à la Neo from The Matrix complete his quirky ensemble.
Camo cuts and side-stripe joggers were ubiquitous last autumn/winter, and this street-styler is out to prove that they can still be styled in a slick, up-to-date way this year. Go for a vibrant jumper to team with your standout camouflage-print puffer – the trick is to match the colour of your under layer to the stripe on your trews. Pop on a pair of chunky white kicks for a neat minimal finish.
