Believe it or not, getting dressed in the morning isn’t just a problem women face. In fact, a lot of men would look at their wardrobe and struggle every morning, not knowing what to put on. They want to make a better first impression, but there are only limited choices out there. Plus, most men’s street style revolves around whatever is trendy this season.

Mainstream fashion changes too fast. New fashion trends are being introduced almost every season. The average men can’t afford to change their wardrobe every season. That said, we highly recommend that you shop for pieces that isn’t specific to any given season. The good news is that men’s street style tends to lean toward staple pieces. They are versatile and comfortable, which makes them ideal for everyday wear.

Men’s wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a good pair of jeans. They are a staple in men’s street style. They are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own and works well with almost every outfit.

A lot of people see jeans and shirt as sloppy. Whether you like it or not, men’s street style plays a huge part of men’s fashion. That means, you don’t need to give up your jeans any time soon.

To upgrade your jeans game this season, we highly recommend that you invest in high quality jeans. That means simple, dark colored, straight legged, and free from wear and tear. Dress things up a notch by pairing your denim jeans with a short or long-sleeved shirt. If you want to keep things a bit casual, opt for plain-colored shirt and pair it with rugged accents. No logos or graphics. Also, make sure that it fits perfectly. Men’s street style is about looking rugged without looking sloppy.

Bold printed shirts

Printed shirts are a huge trend this year. In fact, almost every high street brand and store carries men’s bold print shirts. It’s impossible to walk down the street without seeing someone wearing a printed shirt. Floral prints, Hawaiian shirts, stripes, and even polka dot prints are everywhere.

If you are looking for a casual date ensemble that would give off a good impression, then look no further. Printed shirts are a great way to add a subtle edge or statement to men’s style. But if you decide to make it the center piece of your outfit, then we highly recommend that you keep the rest of your outfit simple. You don’t want to give people a headache. Pair it with denim jeans or chino pants and a pair of white canvas sneakers. This summer, you may also put on some sunglasses to complete the look.

When done right, printed shirts can transform an outfit. The key is to find the right shirt for you and wear it with confidence. Awkwardness is difficult to hide. Any kind of second guessing will make you look uncomfortable.

Monochrome prints

For those who aren’t brave enough to rock the printed and patterned shirts, try monochrome.  Here, clothes are featured in traditional patterns like gingham and stripes, which allows you to make daring statement, but in a more subtle way. This creates a look that is classic and sophisticated, simple yet modern.

During the 17th and 18th century, monochrome pieces tend to be worn on more formal settings. In the modern times, however, monochrome is acceptable in both formal and casual settings. Last time, we wrote an article that highlights the changes in men’s fashion and style through the years.

For an eye-catching, yet understated look, try varying the textures within your look. Throw a plain white shirt and pair it with black jeans. You may also add in a leather jacket to add in an interesting twist to a plain outfit. Finish off the look with a pair of trainers. This is a great option since monochrome is one of the most wearable trends. Plus, it is not specific to any season, so you can wear them all year round.

White out

While everyone is busy making statements with bold patterns and eye-catching hues, others are taking on a minimal approach. White clothing is a staple in spring and summer men’s style. It creates a relaxed, laidback look. Plus, white reflects light, so you don’t feel too hot. Ultimately, it’s a classic and suits almost any occasion and situation.  You can’t go wrong with all white.

Some people are worried that all-white look may look like you’re wearing a uniform. Others are hesitant to give this look a try as it may come across as unimaginative or boring. For a more casual style, choose a white polo shirt and pair it with a chinos or white jeans. For summer, white linen shirts and breezy pants would make a great outfit.

White on white can be overpowering, so try to get a touch of color in there. You can add accessories like watches, sunglasses, handkerchiefs, patterned ties, and colored belts.

Final thoughts

Street style dressing doesn’t always translate to loose shirts, baggy pants and trainers. Given the amount of more complex designs and high end designer clothing being introduced in men’s style, you’d be forgiven for thinking that.

Trends come and go. Over the years, we’ve seen significant changes with men’s street style. Today, men are no longer limited to shirts, jeans and sneakers. Rather, they are free to choose whatever type of clothing they want – something that would reflect their individual style. Be bold, brave and adventurous with how you dress. Remember, fashion is all about finding your personal style.
