Paris Couture has come to a close. While the runway is the expected place to look, everyone knows that it's streetwear that dictates what’s in, what’s out and what’s timeless.
While the decade is expected to be one of great innovation and newness, the need to remain positive in dark times still has many pulling out all of the old trends from yesteryear, which are here to stay.
So, whether you are joining the global call to dump the skinny jeans or keeping your closet minimal, here are the menswear trends hot off the streets of Paris.
Crop tops forever
The gender-bending trend is seemingly going nowhere. From jackets to tees and workout gear, if you are a little shy, try out this trendy item with high-waisted trousers. Age has no limited so don’t be scared to play around with your favourite colours.
Perhaps boosted by the passing of Andre Leon Talley, the cape has proven to be a must-have. Not keen on lugging it around? Opt for scarves or bomber jackets especially when wearing casual outfits.
Hearkening back to the rave scene of the mid 90s and early 2000s, the all-black goth-inspired look is coming back. The focus here is an interview with a vampire through plunging necklines, looser fits and all-black outfits. Spice up the look with velvet in your colour of choice or layered accessories in cool silvers or warm golds.
Gone are the tie-dyes and playful prints of last year’s TikTok crazed fad-starters. Fashion is taking a much-needed cleanse with the late 90s monotones in sumptuous form. Leading the pack is all white, a colour that works with the more matured palette of this season’s streetwear trends.
The shopping bag
While you will be happier in your tote bag, your latest shopping exploits are the perfect accessories. A much more muted approach to the logomania trend, let everyone know which stores have stolen your heart in Hyde Park or at the Diamond Walk. The trend has been a favourite for influencers who buy empty bags and get tongues wagging on Instagram.
