Street style is in these days. I like to see it as high fashion pieces, worn in the most relaxed way by mostly youths at urban places or events. Here are five essential pieces to pull off men’s street style.
Street fashion is fashion that is regarded to have emerged, not from studios, but from the grassroots. Street fashion is usually linked to the youth culture. Check out these five major clothing pieces for men’s street style:
The most common clothing piece for most street style is a long t-shirt that can be worn freely and paired with denim or chinos or even shorts. You can either get a zipper shirt, which will serve you well in the Nigerian heat or just a light weight long tee.
Again, because most people who subscribe to this fashion trend are on the go, you’ll see them wearing a lot of low top sneakers. As far as what color to get, you could get a universal white first.
Aside from the fact that a good pair of denim pants are good for any man’s closet, they are a staple for street style. Denim can be worn with just about anything and looks good if you get the right pair for your frame.
Outerwear of some kind, be it bomber jacket, denim jacket, sports coat or blazer, it adds an extra umph to your entire look. However, you have to take into account the weather so what I would suggest is a lightweight sweater vest or blazer.
This is what people consider the finishing touch. After you have worn whatever clothing pieces you have, you want to add a personal touch to your look with some accessories, be it a watch, stacks of bracelets or metal brooches.
Don’t forget the most important part of this all; street style is supposed to be effortless, fun and comfortable so don’t overthink it, just dress in the moment.
