Top Streetwear Trends Worth Investing in

From bold high tops to graphic cartoon tees, it seems like the only attire men want to wear anymore is streetwear. It’s not just a style that defines what models are wearing off-duty or what celebs are wearing off set anymore. Steeped in hip-hop culture, we know mens streetwear as a category of mens clothing online, but it’s also becoming a lifestyle and culture that revolves around men’s fashion.

From sneaker selfies to fresh haircuts, the streetwear influence is spreading like wildfire, especially amongst millennials. The street-style scene has infiltrated so much of today’s pop culture that most stylish menswear brands include streetwear-inspired pieces in their lines. You no longer need to limit yourself to impossible-to-get name brands in order to buy men’s trendy clothing with those authentic urban vibes, like urban styles of mens clothing online at Differio.com.

As much as we catch street style every day, there are certain trends that truly make a unique statement each season. We gathered the top streetwear trends that are worth investing in right now so you know what to ditch and what to score.

  1. 90s-Inspired Pieces

If there’s one era that’s been successfully brought back from the dead, it’s the 90s decade. From colorblock patterns to colorful graphics, men’s streetwear has definitely taken inspiration from some of the brightest and boldest elements of this decade. As for the streetwear looks, it’s never been easier to mix vintage and modern styles than with today’s retro-inspired fashion clothes for men.

Amongst trendy mens clothing online and in stores, brands are bringing back the bubble-jacket look – the kind made popular by so many old school hip-hop artists. The latest puffer-jacket trends are covered in high shine and fashioned with an oversized fit. Street-style aficionados are layering their puffer jackets over ribbed turtlenecks and colorblock sweatshirts.

There are signature details in these pieces that can take you back twenty years ago. You still get the urban-vintage vibe, but it’s tweaked with modern details that are worthy of being sold amongst high fashion clothes for men.

  1. Luxe Athleisure

Athleisure was probably one of the biggest influences that made mens streetwear so highly coveted across men’s fashion. It’s basically another way of rocking athletically sexy clothes for men when you’re not doing leg presses and bicep curls at the gym. Cool and comfortable, the newest streetwear trends you can find amongst mens clothing online takes athleisure to luxury heights.

The luxe-athleisure look is basically workout clothing redesigned to look more fashion forward. You can expect a high influx of cool sneaker boots – a wearable hybrid of high-top fashion sneakers and ankle boots. As for fashion clothes for men, urban hoodies, slim-fit pants, and joggers for men are getting updated with racing side stripes that add an athletic touch.

The beauty of this style of urban clothing for men is that you can easily mix and match these pieces for going out or staying in.

  1. Urban Apocalyptic

Festivals like Burning Man might be influencing the streetwear scene as trendy mens clothing online and in stores are debuting urban apocalyptic looks. While this trend still honors streetwear’s roots in urban culture, it seamlessly combines both styles, so you can rock Mad Max vibes on a casual hoodie or t-shirt.

From oversized puffer coats to worn distressed sweaters, the urban apocalyptic trend is all about making post-apocalyptic style more wearable. Some of the latest trends include tops detailed with that end-of-the-world feel, like ergonomic cargo pockets on cardigans and multiple zipper accents on ripped jeans.

It’s an innovative take on transforming looks that are normally more appropriate for couture and making them comfortable enough for grabbing drinks or running errands.

 

HERON PRESTON x Off-White

VIRGIL ABLOH AND HERON PRESTON REVEAL “COLLABORATION” HANDBAG

For their first collaborative release, Virgil Abloh (Off-White ℅ Virgil Abloh) and Heron Preston present “COLLABORATION”, a concept carryall that incorporates the designers’ common exploration of industrial elements. This accessory is a living hybrid: its dual-colored strap is a fusion of Off-Whites graphic yellow Weight Securing System strap and Preston’s signature orange band with the branded word “Style” in Russian. The strap is a purposeful note of asymmetry in a piece with clean balance. The transparent body is printed with Off-White’s famed diagonal white lines, along with the words “COLLABORATION”. Black carabiner clips secure the strap, while inside, an industrial netting-inspired inner tote is a textural contrast to the sleek exterior. Substantial industrial hardware finishes the design, with metal nuts that cleanly secure orange leather straps.

“Heron Preston’s ability to think without limits comes to life in this bag we created together,” Abloh says. “The mix of the materials combined with Off-White DNA lead to a final product that suggests a different idea of a “handbag”.”

PRICING
“COLLABORATION” – Mini – $942.00
“COLLABORATION” – Medium – $1,232.00

ABOUT HERON PRESTON

Heron Preston is the true embodiment of an artist born of the post-internet generation. Multi-faceted and genre-bending, he is a cultural icon in youth culture, and emerging designer in high fashion. He founded his eponymous fashion brand in 2016, and in two short seasons has garnered an international following. The common thread among his impressive bodies of work is a commitment to innovation, experimentation, and unpredictability. Heron Preston finds particular joy in the unexpected; taking conventional themes and reinterpreting them. Take for example his “UNIFORM” project from 2015, the designer’s first major collection, in which he collaborated with the NYC Department of Sanitation on a series of zero waste themed clothes and accessories. He’s also served as the global digital producer for Nike and of course, creative consultant to Kanye West, most notably on his work for the Life of Pablo and Yeezy fashion label.
