Tez Style Guide: Moto Monochrome
For this style guide, I was pretty much looking to accomplish a hybrid of “I woke up like this” mixed with “rebel without a cause.”
Don't be fooled, though, because as unique as this get-up suggests you to be, it's very easy to mimic. Just look around at other fashion-forward men strutting through city streets in similar pieces. A good street style look is all about making it your own.
The color schemes are simple and this ensemble sticks to the neutrals of black, white and denim. There are plenty of reasons why models and the avant-garde fall back to this go-to look. It's flattering and cool without trying too hard.
In traditional fashion, this style guide also showcases affordable clothing that's easily attainable. Zara, H&M and Adidas are three world-renowned brands that enjoy their peaks from the top of the fashion industry for stylish, yet affordable wear.
Both featured moto jackets are from Zara. Wear them separately as I did or pair together. The olive green sweater jacket slips nicely under the black moto for a sleek, fitted look. Both come in black, which adds an element of mystery to your appearance, and faux leather works during fall, winter and spring seasons. I’ve been living in both of these whenever possible. Pair either jackets with a henley, thermal, or a classic crew neck t-shirt and you're ready to go.
Distressed denim will add an air of cool swag under the sleek tops described above. Of course, I suggest pairing this type of outfit with comfortable kicks to complete your look. I kept accessories simple with clubmaster sunglasses and my favorite new timepiece by MVMT watches. All product links are listed below to exact or similar pieces.
