The Best of Both Worlds: Combining Street-Style Pieces With Runway Trends

   If you’re concerned with what you’re wearing or if you simply keep up to date on the world’s happenings, then you probably know that it was recently New York and Paris Fashion Week or that it currently is London Fashion Week. These events are rampant with front-row celebrity sightings and street-style inspiration. However, they go beyond the standard “who” and “what”– they depict the “wear” by sending fashions that will be considered on-trend in the upcoming seasons down the runway. Do you understand? Hopefully. Because, in the spirit of this current Fashion Week, we’ll be looking at the must-have styles for the fall and winter of 2019 and pairing them with our new merch from Drop 003. 

   Ladies always come first, so let’s start by combining our AstroGirl hoodie with two of the major looks seen on the runway. 

   AstroGirl hoodie

   Far from its preppy roots, the looks showcased at the Coach show were entirely grungy and punk inspired. Female models sported oversized jackets, mixed materials & patterns, and lace-up creeper-style shoes. All of these trends are perfect for the cooler months, but one look stuck out to me the most– a kneecap-skimming faux fur coat emblazoned with the label’s notorious “C” logo. The model sported a relatively simple black dress underneath, but I like the idea of our cropped hoodie paired with leather pants and bone-white sneakers muuuch more.

   Meanwhile, at Y-3, the looks were black and white; literally. The monochromatic tones kept the clothing streamlined, therefore allowing the layering of accessories and fabrics to appear sleek and cool, never messy or overdone. Taking our own AstroGirl hoodie and pairing it with a black vinyl puffer, beanie, and slides would be the perfect homage to the runways of Paris.

   Since our AstroGuy long sleeve is so versatile, it's a breeze to mix our merch with the catwalk's very best.

   Returning once more to Coach's show, the menswear mimicked the same punk attitude that the women sported. The looks ranged from shearling-lined jackets to plaid overcoats, but the outfit that really caught my eye was a head-to-toe maroon ensemble. Taking our shirt, I'm visualizing a black suit jacket, black pants, black sneakers (perhaps, Vans) and gray socks to mirror this specific Fashion Week look.

   Finally, over at Burberry, the London look was in full swing. The clothing was inspired by the country's youth culture, so the utilitarian-style puffer jackets, fair isle sweaters, and pin-covered jean jackets– though nice to look at– came as no surprise. Nonetheless, by taking our AstroGuy long sleeve, layering a flannel overtop, throwing on some track pants, and crossing a bag over one's chest, one of my favorite looks at Burberry can become yours too.
