This week’s selection of Instagram street style seems to cover the whole spectrum of trends seen in previous articles. A fusion of neutral, monochrome outfits, bold prints, high-octane hues and workwear-inspired pieces have all come out to flex before temperatures rise to record highs in July and August. While most of these outfits are noteworthy for their unapologetic boldness in use of color, print and composition, when deconstructed, the individual garments can be easily incorporated into everyday outfits when paired more low-key pieces. Neutral-toned, loose-fitting garments seem to be the foundation for a versatile spring/summer wardrobe, while super-animated colors and classic prints — such as plaid and stripes — add some timeless zest to days when you can’t bear to go hard on layering.

All of these pieces make for versatile wardrobe essentials and can be easily found in any menswear store or your dad’s closet.
Working with the same predominantly black color palette but moving to the other end of the style spectrum, this outfit focuses on the bold techwear genre. The futuristic silhouette is anchored by functionally-inspired styling and garments such as a bomber jacket, tapered pants, heavy layering, Rick Owens hi-top sneakers and the signature techwear mask. A white graphic print T-shirt and DIY neck wrap, made from the same shirt, break up the otherwise murdered-out look.

This two-piece outfit from Hyein Seo fuses military and workwear influences into a perfectly tuned uniform for the urban jungle.

Future has been seen in some daring red outfits before, but this time, the rapper brings some Paddington Bear heat wearing a bold, red patent coat with leather strap closures and a suede collar.

In this outfit, a red sateen polo shirt is matched with some baggy khaki pants for a heatwave-inspired look.

Traditional athletic apparel and classic streetwear garments get softened by voluminous fits and pastel hues for summer days. This outfit plays with proportions by balancing baggy track pants and a bomber jacket from P.A.M.’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection with a slim and fitted top. On the feet, the Nike Air VapoMax in “Pure Platinum” extends the outfit’s light color palette and echoes the balancing proportions ethos with its silhouette’s sock-like upper and Air bubble sole unit.
This take on summer whites starts out minimalist at the top and increases in complexity moving down. The vanilla-themed look features an oversized cream pullover, tan and white striped pants, graphic socks from A-COLD-WALL* and intricate Raf Simons x adidas Ozweego Bunnies in cream.

There’s nothing as clean as an all-white outfit, but this look takes the classic summer uniform to another level with meticulous tailoring and neat lines throughout.

Zooming in, subtle details such as the black graphic print at the collar, the chest pockets and the drawstring waist add a bit of texture and contrast to the silhouette.

A classic short-sleeve button-up white shirt balances out the trousers in terms of print but complements them in terms of retro styling. A bright blue cap and grail-level UNDERCOVER x Nike Jungle Dunks in “Royal” frame the look and add some extra impact.
