Street Style for Men Is Full of Fashion Inspiration for Us All
When we think “street style star” there’s about a million fabulous fashion bloggers that pop into our heads—and for the most part, they’re all women. But
our eyes have recently been opened up a little more to the world of male street fashion, and man, oh man, have we been sleeping on some major inspiration.
It’s safe to say that the colorful world of street style has more or less replaced the runways when it comes to trend-setting looks and outfits to copy. But if you want to stay ahead of the curve, here’s a hot tip: Male street style is where it’s at.
Sure, menswear has always been stylish, but in recent years, the looks have definitely been dialed up a notch as men become increasingly adventurous with how they dress—from jaunty accessories to bold color combinations. In fact, the looks are so good that ladies should sit up and take notice—and steal some of these outfit ideas for themselves.
Menswear is kind of a perfect playpen for fashion lovers: Whereas the world of women’s fashion can sometimes feel like the wild, wild west in terms of aesthetics—no boundaries, a million moving parts—menswear has set wardrobe staples and conventions for every day that are more or less universal, like a suit. As such, menswear is like a great sonnet—it’s how one plays within a set structure that really allows the wearer to show off his (or her!) personality.
Here are 12 style rules you can steal from the boys.
Aim for effortless
By all means, never look like you spent hours getting ready in the morning. Leave something a bit rumpled; something else a bit un-tucked or un-buttoned. Don’t over-think things.
