We’ve seen a hell of a lot of change in men’s street style over the past few years, men are becoming increasingly into their look and the range of clothes on offer is increasing. How we present ourselves can say a lot about us so it makes sense that we don’t want to blend in, we want to look interesting, we want a sense of intrigue and one way to achieve this is through our style. One of the big styles over the years has been brought on by reality TV shows like TOWIE, but we’re done with the Essex look. We’re sick of the too-tight blue skinnies, blazers, cardigans and brogues so change up the look with some of the best recent trends in street style.
