“Luxury Street Style”

Street style has been growing in popularity for years, and thanks to designers like Virgil Abloh, it has become one of the most prominent of-the-moment trends. Abloh’s latest Spring 2020 collection for Louis Vuitton recently debuted as one of the highlights of Paris Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2020 edition. That’s right: we’ve now got full permission to slum it with style thanks to the latest bum-chic-meets-grandpa-gear trends. Comfy couture? Don’t have to tell us twice.

 

From the oversized and intentionally ill-fitted to the flamboyantly colorful, ladies and gents alike walked away with an itch for neon brights, geriatric-inspired footwear, and handbag accessories that don’t require, well — hands.

 

The key to embodying this fresh back-alley vibe? A few oversized pieces offset by just the right accessory:

Bum bags
Aka the infamous Fanny. They’re small, they’re fierce, and most importantly: they’re temptingly androgynous (even—no,especially—when they’re neon purple.)

Statement sneakers
Neon accents, the ever-present array of high tops, and vibrant kicks of a more, um, geriatric nature. If you get one thing right this year, it better be footwear.

White shades
Nothing says 2020 quite like the Acetate 1.1 Millionaires Z1166W shades. Lucky for you, there’s a still a few left in stock.

PVC everything
Ok, this isn’t technically an accessory, but the transparent trend is so distinctive, it’s essentially an accessory to your accessories. (Obsessed with PVC? While you’re in this life-in-plastic-it’s-fantastic world, check out this Louis Vuitton Keepall.)
Solar Ray Steamers
Even as we daydream about next year’s hottest trends, summer 2019 is still in full fling — and so is Virgil Abloh’s fire-y Monogram Solar Ray Steamers with their telltale orange link chains.
