If you have hit the outdoor pubs and restaurants in the last week, you will know that while the feeling of freedom is practically euphoric, the freezing weather is not. Well, fear not as Wellgosh are here to offer you some of their most stylish-yet-weather garments. The Leicester-based apparel store – which has been showcasing various streetwear brands in their store since 1988 – have comprised a list of their top streetwear offerings that will assist you as we undergo a changing of the season. From Nike trainers and Reebok collabs to Cav Empt fleeces, here is what we are loving…
The Leicester-based store recruits Nike and Reebok to head up their list of must-have fashion picks for the month.
Kicking off our line-up is ‘50s inspired brand Wacko Maria. Offered in an ivory hue and complete with leopard-print panels, the brand presents it’s 50’s Jacket (Type-5) (£490). Made from mid-weight cotton and sporting cupra lining, the jacket embodies practicality and style, making it the perfect addition to your out on the town looks during the seasonal transitions that we are currently experiencing. And, if you are still in search of extra layers, Wacko Maria also has its Heavy Weight Pullover Hooded Sweatshirt (Type-3) (£235) available in a deep forest-green.
Reebok x A$AP Nast
The notorious hip hop collective A$AP Mob is synonymous with style, meaning that we are here for any collab they drop. This is most definitely the case for the Reebok x A$AP Nast CL Legacy sneakers (£85). Comprising of overlapping suede segments – in a lilac and sandy brown colourway – the shoe is sleek and comes complete with a chunky sole which offers a layer of comfort – all the while emulating style. As the shoe is A$AP Mob approved, we will definitely be grabbing a pair.
It is all about the sole when it comes to Nike’s latest offerings. For the Nike OverBreak SP’s (£125) – which sport a textured wedge sole in white – offers maximal comfort and a couple of extra inches to those who wear them while the soft oranges provide a background for the Neptune Green Nike tick in the shoe’s body. Should they not take your fancy, we also have the Nike Air Huarache ‘Escape’ sneakers (£105). Offered in an array of earthy hues with an accompanying a chunky white sole, the leather trailers are understated in nature, making them a staple for your wardrobe. With streetwear emulating an ethos in which chunkier is definitely better, these are definitely at the top of our shopping list.
Next up in the style line-up is Needles with their mustard Track Jacket (£290). Featuring maroon stripes on the sleeves and a subtle butterfly motif, this jacket – and the accompanying bottoms – offer unparalleled comfort fused with a streetwear sensibility for those of you who are not ready to swap out the lockdown loungewear sets for pub attire just yet. If the orange co-ord is too bold for your liking, the brand also offers a sleek black pairing in the form of its Short Sleeve Work Shirt (£160) and H.D. Pant (£205) which are both exaggerated in structure yet understated in nature. Whether you’re looking to channel some serious Robert Pattinson meme energy or in search of an effortless co-ord to throw on for your Friday night outings, Needles has got you.
We don’t know about you, but following on from last week’s pub trip we are having to brace ourselves to endure the icy cold April evenings again. Luckily, Cav Empt has a solution to our problem. Presenting their Empt Half Fleece Pullover (£210), the deep-navy garments oozes comfort and warmth. Featuring the brand’s infamous logo on the left sleeve in the form of a candy red rubber path, practicality takes precedent as a robust half zip and chest pocket adorn the front. In addition, the brand also offers its Empt Furry Back Softshell (£280). Featuring a full zip and in a bold black shade, this will offer you extra versatility should you experience a flurry of warm weather. Regardless of your preference, you will definitely be dreaming of these cosy garments when it hits 10 pm this Friday evening while you’re embracing the lifted lockdown, so we suggest you take a look at them now.
Shirts, remember those? Well, if you don’t, Human Made is here to remind you. The Japanese streetwear brand is rounding off the line-up with their crisp Stripe Shirt (£235). Adorned with fine white and blue stripes, the garment is tailored to perfection and comes complete with dual chest pockets and the brand’s adorable heart logo. And, to accompany, Human Made are offering a pair of heart-branded ribbed Pile Socks (£25) – because let’s be real, we have all been wearing odd socks for the last year. So, whether you’re on your first post-lockdown date or attempting to re-enter the socialising scene, these pieces will have you looking suave and sophisticated during the spring and summer months.
