I’d say my favorite thing about going to trade shows isn’t seeing the collections early or scoping out the trends, but rather looking at the people around me. I swear it’s like a biannual meeting of some of the dopest dressers from across the globe. I got a little excited as I walked the floor. So much so that I started taking pictures of strangers. You could definitely see some clear style laws in place, and the crowd had no problem obeying. Below are my three favorites. - JxR
(capsule) Style Law 1. All-black is still the king of fashion statements.
So many guys (and girls) were wearing all-black today — they reminded that there are countless ways to make it your own. If you ask me, no other color (on its own) lets you show off your personality and style like this one.
(capsule) Style Law 2. All the coolest dudes wear beanies — with any and everything.
Even though I’ve been wearing beanies all season long, I never noticed just how great they look until I laid eyes on some of the guys at the show. Not only is it a cool, laid-back accent, but you can incorporate into almost any look. Try it.
(capsule) Style Law 3. The coolest color combo right now = navy + black + white
I’ve been in love with this combo ever since I saw my buddy Drew’s dope navy/black get-up during NYFW last season; and apparently, we’re not the only fans of this dark-toned match-up. I’d say that with every corner I turned, I noticed someone else wearing the two colors — and this guy’s bright white sneakers add even more to the look in my opinion. Definitely a trusty trio to call on next time you’re stuck wondering what to pull out of your closet.
Sidebar: It wasn’t until after I started working on this post that I realized I was actually wearing the trio today too (maybe that’s why I liked it so much, haha).
