10 Trends We Expect to See in Men’s Street Style This Year

Here at Vogue Runway, we recently learned that there are now more Fashion Weeks than there are weeks in a year. That means it’s never not “fashion show season”—and we’re often covering multiple Fashion Weeks at the same time. In fact, in two days, the Fall 2019 Menswear shows will kick off in London, in tandem with our continuing Pre-Fall 2019 coverage. So much for easing into the New Year!

Along with a glimpse at what guys (and girls) will be wearing next fall, we’ll be posting hundreds of street style photos that reveal what they’re into right now—and we have a few ideas about what to expect. Utility gear, luxurious outerwear, and strange pants are just a few of our street style predictions; below, we’ve outlined 10 of the trends you’re bound to see more of this month.

Covetable Cross-Bodies

We know, we know—guys have been wearing fanny packs and cross-body bags across their chests for over a year. But instead of fading away, this trend is picking up steam thanks to a few big debuts: Kim Jones at Dior Men and Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton. Both designers’ first collections included covetable new cross-body bags for boys: Jones put his spin on the Dior saddle bag (and showed it again in chrome for Pre-Fall 2019), while Abloh’s hewed more minimalist in croc-embossed leather. We guarantee you’ll see guys wearing bags from both collections all month long.

Spotted and Striped

In the world of womenswear, animal prints don’t exactly qualify as breaking news. But for men, a tiger-striped coat or leopard button-down still feels like a risk. We’ve seen a few daring guys wear leopard and zebra motifs on the street, but thanks to the animal prints on major runways—Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta, and Coach 1941 among them—we have a feeling they’ll catch on in a bigger way in 2019.
