Edgy street style looks meets casual cool with a tad of high fashion

At first glance, you might only see black hoodies and joggers, but when it comes to New York City, nothing is what it seems. A basic track pant by DIOR and a JOY DIVISION x RAF SIMONS hoodie. Those clever subtleties are what allow some to say: the streets of New York City predict trends better than the runway.

VETEMENTS may be the king of street style today, but what about back in the nineties when reality tv stars and rising musicians developed the idea of street style with the help of Tommy Hilfiger? In homage to the roots of the trend, the VETEMENTS x TOMMY HILFIGER Print Hoodie brings the two eras together. It is a real ode to the romantic idea of an under-the-radar edge on found speckled throughout the streets of NYC. That is not the only collaboration Demna Gvasalia of VETEMENTS is known for. Gvasalia and REEBOK, another brand that dominated the streets in the nineties, created VETEMENTS x REEBOK Sock Hi-Top Knit Sneakers. The shoe is a cause for celebration. Comfort over style has become so popular that tennis shoes, or the “dad shoe,” is seen everywhere. GIVENCHY color block leather trainer sneaker is just one of our favorites this season.

From an all-white logo hoodie to an all-black logo ball cap, when it comes to BALENCIAGA, the name says it all. You can also throw on a VETEMENTS Logo Raincoat over your look to pull it all together. The “Vetements” shout out in the back feeds into the logo-mania craze that is back and stronger than ever. The ALEXANDER WANG AWG Corporate Long Sleeve proves that a subtle touch goes a long way. With no logo but the AWG says if you know, you know. The same goes for the ALEXANDER WANG newspaper print shorts, as they blend perfectly between casual and edgy. A secret bad boy, if you will. A big proponent of street style? The cool attitude behind the look. The ENFANTS RICHES DEPRIMES Cotton Twill Jacket encompasses the attitude with its “cannot feel love or guilt” print. Not to mention it’s complementary black and white images of eyes and hands. It is an excellent reminder that when it comes to street style, everything is not what it seems.
