Out of Compton: Transitional 15
Set to a backdrop of brutal brickwork, this autumn transitional trend, entitled 'Out of Compton' mirrors all the aspects of this location with its urban edge - a key element of the look. Strength and structure can be found in the utilitarian aspects of this collection offering durable yet comfortable looks for men's casualwear.
This trend takes inspiration from the 90’s with looser fits and silhouettes. We see a move away from t-shirts and shorts as the temperatures calm and begin to cool.
This look largely draws inspiration from work-wear, modernizing and refreshing items such as cargo pants, construction boots and flannel checked shirts. Street-smart sportswear elements can also be seen, coming through strongest for accessories with baseball caps, hi-top sneakers and white contrast colored soles on tan desert boots.
The overall color palette is kept neutral with warm sand hues, whites and soft grays. An injection of color comes into play from print pattern with checked fabrications, such as the plaid flannel shirt, in bold red and black and indigo blues from the dark wash denim.
An important styling detail when adopting this look is to think about layering, keep the layers light and loose. Moving on from slim cut pants, it’s now all about baggy silhouettes with dropped-crotch sweatpants, oversized chinos and loose-fit denim. Perfect for the seasonal transition.
