Whenever we talk to streetwear and stylish enthusiasts, it feels like they stress many of the same principles. Be careful when experimenting with colors. Don’t me afraid to visit a tailor. Only wear certain sneakers with certain pants. The foundation of any wardrobe should always start with what makes you comfortable, but taking and trying out cues from other people can sometimes lead you to discoveries you never anticipated.
As we get closer to another change in the seasons, that’s as important as ever. I can’t be the only one who struggles at times to adapt my fits to the cold weather. It’s easier to get by during the summer, rocking bucket hats, T-shirts, and whatever kicks you want. But now you need to be a little more cognizant when you step out of the crib. That’s why we’re here to get you ready for November, a month that’ll feature a number of amazing sneaker releases that’ll need complementing fits.
In this edition of The Come Up, we’re getting you prepared for the holidays. These are November’s Freshest Style Trends.

Nike Graphic Long-Sleeve Tee
A closet that doesn’t feature a handful of fly long-sleeve T-shirts is losing. That’s especially true at this point in the year. Layer SZN calls for long-sleeves, button-ups or crew sweatshirts, and jackets. And if you can find a dope graphic Tee in white, like this one here, it’s all for the better. Combine that with something casual like the Nike Roshe Run and you’ll be winning.
NIKE ROSHE RUN – $79.99
NIKE AW77 FT SHOEBOX CUFF PANTS – $69.99
NIKE GRAPHIC LONG-SLEEVE T-SHIRT – $31.99
A.I.R. Jordan Long Sleeve Reflective Tee
It’s always best to work subtle tones into your fits. That can be easier said than done, however, especially in today’s sneaker culture that promotes loud colors on your favorite kicks. But the cold weather is the perfect time to dust off the black and grey-based shoes as they are more likely to last through nature. In doing so, offset the look with a loud top, like the one here from Jordan Brand that’s available in select stores.
JORDAN FLEECE PANTS – $99.99
JORDAN TRUE FLIGHT – $ 139.99
Beanies are winter essentials and they’ve been regarded as that since I was a kid. For those of us with short hair, they are especially useful during those city commutes to work and school. Plus, they can pull double-duty as not only outerwear but also fashion pieces that you can wear all day long. Smooth, casual, without losing their bread and butter–I’m digging some of Nike’s new collection.
Nike NSW LOI POM BEANIE – $24.99
NIKE NSW CAMO POM BEANIE – $29.99
NIKE S+ SWEATHER CUFFED BEANIE – $31.99
adidas Reflective Hoodies
It’s always hoodie season but especially now with basketball season going on, you need something to rock to and from practice. These reflective joints from adidas are worth it. Combine them with something fresh from adidas Originals, like the Tubular or the Stan Smith, and you can even potentially turn them into something that acts as a base for your rotation. Cop from select stores now.
