How To

Did You Wear One Of 2018’s Street Style Trends?

‘Cus we did!

We’ve witnessed many unexpected street style trends this year, like the chunky sneakers, we used to poke fun at our dads for wearing, which caused a complete frenzy on the streets and the internet.

From Zara to Balenciaga, whoever you are, whatever you earn, dad sneakers are firmly ‘in’ and any memory of dad going for a ‘jog’ in a pair, that cost a lot less than anything on the net, has most definitely been suppressed.

We should’ve known when normcore was born.

That’s the power of fashion trends, right? We end up wearing the things that we never believed we would try but if everyone’s doing it, why the hell not?

The street-style crew pulled off many looks this year (some more daring and ? than others) but let it be known that this is a no judgement zone since there’s no doubt that the whole COH office has definitely dabbled in some of 2018’s street-style trends (see below). But if you can’t experiment with the absurdity of fashion, every once in a while, then where’s the fun in it?

So let us know in the comments – which of 2018’s street-style trends did you try?

Bum Bags

The bum bag has reached ubiquity with the fashion pack, and we’re fine with that, because it is probably the most functional ‘It’-bag of all time. If you were to wear one yourself, would you sling it over your torso like Kendall Jenner, or would you clip it up around your hips, like every other tourist that came before you?

Bucket Hats

Bucket hats were worn in the bucket loads this year, and especially those of the clear variety. On sunny days, no less! Our mums would not approve of this blatant disregard for sun safety, but have you given it a try?

Dad Sneakers

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder—so what do these statement sneakers say to you? I’m cute and cool, and you should definitely put me on your feet. OR Remember me! I’m your dad’s favourite shoe. Don’t you dare even think about wearing me. Tell us in the comments.

Coloured/Patterned Tights

Colourful tights will forever remind me of Blair Waldorf, meaning they immediately win my vote. But, I must admit, the rest of my wardrobe is not quite sure how to welcome this bold new arrival. You?

Shopping Bags Or Handbags?

Word on the street is actual plastic shopping bags are the new handbags. If you can’t afford to buy something from Prada, so you can fully lean into the trend sweeping the streets, then your local supermarket plastic bag is your next best bet… Or place a clutch inside this transparent tote!
