INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
MFW AW18 STREET STYLE
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 1 March 2018
With temperatures hovering around freezing, the fashionable lot who turned up to the AW18 womenswear shows in Milan used the cold weather to their advantage. From sheepskin-lined denim jackets to traditional longline overcoats, the layers exhibited were on point. Here’s a round-up of our favourite luxurious looks.
In case you missed it, it’s no longer a sartorial nightmare to wear a 90s-inspired matching denim set. In fact, utilitarian co-ords are high on the agenda for AW18, so this guy’s well ahead of the curve. To give a Scandi edge to his ensemble, he teams his mid-wash denim cuts with a neutral-coloured polo neck and a complementary overcoat in a subtle camel shade. Extra points are in order for his of-the-moment accessories – check out those chunky Balenciaga creps and super-small shades.
To pull off 80s-style joggers in a vertical-stripe print is no easy feat, but this fella manages it thanks to his colour matching abilities. To soften the effect of his bottom half, he opts for a Gucci Ghost jumper with cuff, hemline and neckline detailing which corresponds to the red patterning on his trousers. He layers up with a moss-green coat and a navy scarf which again reflects the colour of his jumper. To finish, he goes fully road and tucks his trews into his socks to show off his fresh white pair of Reebok Classics.
As far as outerwear is concerned, the puffer jacket has reigned supreme this AW17/18 season. This guy’s puffer encompasses two more major trends – notice that heritage check print and cosy collar lining. As his coat makes quite the statement on its own, the rest of his getup is purposefully relaxed. He teams a staple striped tee with a navy hoodie and matching joggers, and rounds off his look with a pair of much-hyped Off-White x Nike Air Prestos.
Another proponent of the double denim aesthetic, this chap’s got transitional dressing down to a tee. Opting for spring-ready light-wash pieces, he stays warm by picking a jacket with a snug sheepskin/borg lining. Underneath, he rocks a ribbed roll-neck jumper in one of this season’s most popular colours: sunshine yellow. Down low, he rolls up the cuffs of his slim-fit jeans to draw attention to his minimal Gucci trainers. In-between ensemble, sorted.
When it comes to ticking off trends, this guy’s aced AW17/18. Starting off with a graphic-print hoodie, he layers up with a bomber jacket in a traditional camouflage print which cropped up on the AW17 catwalks at both Liam Hodges and Maharishi. On his bottom half, he goes for a pair of velour joggers – a fabric that was popular during the 70s that’s set to make a comeback this season. On foot, he channels grandadcore and ties his look together by going for a pair of chunky-soled shoes in a neon colourway that reflects the hues featured across his getup.
