Trend Insight: Mono Sports
We're liking a bit of texture at the moment, so we've updated all the usual suspects in your wardrobe for a bang-on-trend update. It might not seem like much, but paying attention to elements like texture will work wonders when it comes to keeping your style on point - it's all in the details, mates. Check our lad below for a heads-up on styling, and you'll do no wrong.
What exactly do we mean by 'texture'? We mean waffle-knit polo shirts, ribbed jersey joggers, and padded, panelled, and perforated outerwear. Basically, anything that has an unusual feel to it. Getting the idea?
'Mono' refers to the monochrome colour palette this trend employs, throughout - it's all about bold black and white.
A padded gilet is a natural fit for the Mono Sports look. Not only ideal when the weather is unpredictably warm one minute and sub-zero the next, these sleeveless bad boys also scrunch up into nothing, so they fit nicely into a backpack for a secret stash of warmth when you need it most. Result.
Look out for a fresh take on performance-wear essentials (like water-resistant jackets with camo panelling) to nail those sports-infused streetwear vibes you've seen on road.
And that's that. Despite the pointers, there aren't really any rules when it comes down to it. If you're into this look and want to shop for it, train yourself to hunt for the black, white, textured, and sports-inspired goods. This lot is in stores now, so if you're feeling to cop a few bits, you'd better get on it.
