Alright guys – fashion may not be your forte, but it is most certainly mine. And New York Men’s Fashion Week 2017 did not disappoint. Top designer collections made their way down the runway, while influencers and industry icons rocked the Manhattan streets in style. Social media has revolutionized a new aspect of fashion week. The streets have become nearly as influential as what’s walking down the runway. If not even more.
If you want the low down on what fashion trends are cool right now, just look to the streets. Street style allows consumers to see the current trends of the moment, while the runway shows forecast future fashion movements. The sidewalk is where the real style derives from.
Layering, bold prints, and muted colors defined this year’s street style. These looks showcased a ton of cool graphic tees, sneakers, camouflage prints, and loose fitting pieces layered together to create a laidback and casual look. Over sized coats and bomber jackets were everywhere. Several men accessorized with bandanas that gave off Western, all American, workman vibes.
On the street and runway there were a ton of looks that paired sport coats with shorts. The mixing of tailored wear with casual, vacation pieces was a huge style trend this year. Which I am a huge fan of. Refreshing “resort wear” that is relaxed yet chic definitely set the tone on the streets as well.
I rounded up some of my favorite looks from NY Men’s Fashion Week street style. I hope you can pull inspiration from these looks – I know I did.
