Panicking about how to hold on to your fashion credentials in the midst of this year’s cold snap? Forget about it! There’s no need for hibernation; instead feel hyped about the new streetwear superstars that were practically made for this kinda climate. Whilst the Milanese men declared war on street garms with their tailored display at Pitti Uomo, they clearly hadn’t stepped out on the city streets of dear ol’ Blighty where the need for sporty steez is paramount at this (hell, at any) time of year.
And whilst half of us are too slow off the mark or, you know, lazy to get in line at Supreme on a frosty night, luckily the best of this season’s streetwear is available at the click of a button from the comfort of your own home, courtesy to ASOS Mens. ASOS Mens has long been known as a digital centre of streetwear excellence thanks to their curation of essential names (Nike, Ellesse, Superdry) as well as their respected own line brands such as ASOS White and latest unisex label, Collusion. From 90s functional wear such as fleeces and sports jackets to surf’s up bucket hat and tie dye styles, we’ve picked out the key streetwear trends to know for the year ahead, all available to buy now at ASOS.
The Best ASOS Mens Streetwear To Buy Right Now
From warm and fuzzy fleece to the best tie dye essentials, ASOS have ticked off the top streetwear trends of 2019 for men - and we want the lot...
1. The Sporty Mens Fleece
With the mercury taking a nosedive, it’s time to talk fleece. A warm and fuzzy borg piece once solely reserved for your Dad has come full circle to become a men’s layering essential – no kids required. Inspired by the likes of heritage brands such as Patagonia, the teddy texture is now less country ramble and more city stroll as streetwear obsessives adopt the extra bit of fluff into their fold. But how to wear a fleece, you may ask? The answer is simple: look to high neckline styles for extra warmth, layered under a waterproof jacket and corduroy trousers for a seriously smooth dad-core vibe.
2. The Mens Hooded Sports Jacket
Speaking of waterproofs. No matter where you live in the UK or otherwise, chances are you’re going to need a bit of extra help on the weatherproofing. Fortunately, there are plenty of new pieces out there to keep you dry, and they’re all trending too. Result. We love this understated stripe windbreaker from ASOS White thanks to its minimalist design and pack-a-punch colour. Pair with heavy trainers or switch things up with heavy military boots for a subversive mix. Looking for extra bulk? Create your own slopes in a ski jacket.
3. The Mens Maxi Length Coat
Prepared to go to great lengths for your street cred this season? Then look no further than the men’s maxi coat. Whether it's a longline duster, fur coat or padded jacket, it really is a case of the bigger the better as these longline styles look great paired with an oversized bumbag, straight leg jeans and pair of chunky white trainers (natch).
4. The Tie Dye Print
Surf’s up! Catch a wave as if it were like catching a bus in hypercolour streetwear that deserves to be seen out of season. We love the vibrancy of this Billionaire Boys Club shirt - perfect if you were inspired by the likes of Virgil Abloh’s SS19 Louis Vuitton collection or simply require an instant mood boost.
5. The Mens Bucket Hat
Love it or hate it, the bucket hat is back. Go vibrant if you’re looking to make an impact, or keep it low key with an understated option in this season’s trending beige if you’re simply skipping out on doing your hair.
6. The Technicolour Dream Knit
When it comes to this season’s men’s knitwear, it’s bigger, bolder, better - and ASOS have the best statement men's jumpers around. Hit the streets in hyper-pigmentation and loud pattern clashes – you’ll not only give your happiness levels a boost, but probably everyone else’s too.
