An Introduction to Street Style Featuring Marcelo Burlon
What Is Street Style?
Street style typically embodies high-end fashion mixed with athleisure. It’s both casual and sophisticated at once, works with layering and can feature distressed pieces. Tailoring blends well with oversized items, particularly in summer outfits.
Street style, done properly, can help you stand out from the crowd. First popular in the 1980s, street style never really went away. Both haute couture and High Street stores now pay homage to brands offering bright colours plus box-fresh trainers.
Street fashion can be a tricky look to pull off. You need to look casual, original, comfortable and ready to roll whatever the occasion. To rock the look, use basics as the building blocks of your wardrobe. Satin bomber jackets, oversized hoodies and silk-printed t-shirts can be the basis of some of your best looks.
Block prints and vivid colours are your go-to staples – look out for unusual or in-your-face designs, including those from Marcelo Burlon. Be inspired by the past and seek out 90s neon and pastel styles – pair with neutral separates and blue jeans.
Hoodies and Sweatshirts
It’s worth investigating Marcelo Burlon sweatshirts. A crew neck sweatshirt, for example, exudes street cool and is made from 100% cotton for breathability. With hemmed cuffs and striking print designs, this is an asset to any street wardrobe.
Sputnik 1985 takes inspiration from Soviet chic. With basic hoodies and sweaters emblazoned with Cyrillic script, you will want to channel your inner Russian. See also graphic tops from Marcelo Burlon. Alternatively, strike an attitude with RAF Simons’ photo prints and asymmetric knitwear.

The famous Timberland boot is a durable staple that goes well with several looks. Match with some loose-fit jeans and a Marcel Burlon polo shirt for a casual vibe.
Alternatively you may choose Rothco jungle boots, Adidas Military boots or Nike Special Field boots, as favoured by Kanye West, who has his own street-style wardrobe.
These can be dressed up or down – look for something playful. You could experiment with materials and try a velvet jacket. All-black outfits are accessible, while you can explore suede shoes or trainers for a bold casual-chic look. Flashes of colour and pattern will make you stand out from the crowd (but stay subtle).
