Since dressing down has become the new dressing up, casual is starting to take on a whole new meaning in the world of fashion. Meet the street luxe trend. While previously designers focused on sporty details, now it’s all about elevating street wear staples, reimagining them with embellishments and evening wear fabrics with influences from hip-hop style.
