These 2016 streetwear trends depict a shift in casual fashion, as brands across the globe infuse garments with their own unique branding, original imagery and more -- all while promoting limited-edition items through pop-ups and other exclusive events.
At the same time, brands have been revitalizing vintage motifs, taking consumers back to the past and appealing to their love of the nostalgic. Most prominently, they've been re-hatching looks from the 1990s, giving Millennials the chance to relive their youngest years. Although some have incorporated features of past eras minimally, others have aimed to bring back certain styles in full.
An example of this within these 2016 streetwear trends includes the velour tracksuits from UNITED ARROWS and adidas, which released a limited selection of the matching garments in a retro brown and beige color scheme.
