The Trends from NYFW Men's That We Love

June 28, 2019

The start of June marked the intro of men’s summer and spring 2020 style, and the looks were just as diverse as they were chic. Among all the outfits, we noticed three main trends that you can easily incorporate into your everyday wardrobe — whether they center on the shoe or can be enhanced by a shoe. 

Sneakers Galore

Though we saw a loafer here and there, sneakers stole the show at NYFW Men’s. We noticed a blend of styles: sneakers in all-white or darker hues and kicks with pops of color.

For the dark look

Ash Black Trainerswould’ve felt right at home on the runway — aka the street — of NYFW. His chunky, trend-forward shape, reflective paneling on the heel and mixed textures make him unforgettable. Plus, when you take the streets in Ash, you know you’ll be comfortable wherever your day takes you because he’s outfitted with a latex memory foam-padded insole and a shock-absorbing EVA sole.($105)

For the all-white look 

There’s no shame in keeping it simple, especially if it’s on-trend.Mason White Cap Toe Sneakersis the everyday white sneaker you can rely on. Instead of canvas, Mason has a sleek leather upper for a more refined touch. Wear him with shorts in the summer and jeans in the fall — Mason is perfect for every season.($85)

For the pops of color look: 

Consider theSlay Navy Sneakers your go-to summer hybrid shoe. While most colorful elements at NYFW were on the upper, Slay goes for a more business-on-top, party-on-bottom look. You get a navy calfskin leather upper with matching shoelaces brightened by a pale salmon accent color and white athletic sole. It doesn’t get more summer than that. 

White Tanks and Undershirts

Sometimes you gotta get back to the basics. The spring and summer ‘fits were highlighted by simple white tanks and undershirts, but not on their own. These pieces were the foundation for creatively layered tops, featuring everything from blazers to open-buttoned printed shirts. 

For a toned-down NYFW-inspired look, go with a half-open striped button-down with dark pants andall-white sneakers.

Bold Prints and Patterns

The reason shoes were a little more understated at NYFW? The upper layers were the main attraction. Among the street-style looks were plenty of tropical shirts and stripes, which comes as no surprise. These favorites for summer rested on top of those essential white tanks and undershirts and were usually partially or completely unbuttoned. Sometimes they were also topped off with an additional layer like a blazer.

When picking your shoe, you’re going to go with a pair that has a coordinating color, whether it’s scarlet to match the occasional pop of red in the print or white to complement a simple white-and-navy palm tree shirt. For street-style kicks that go heavy on color, hit up theDax Cobalt Blue Slip On Loafers,Cameron Scarlet Trainers or our newEthan Navy Boat Shoe — to name a few.
