Urban life has its share of advantages: trendy hotspots, energetic environment, and dynamic lifestyle. But city living also poses a few challenges like public transport, rush hour traffic and higher costs of living. Treading the urban landscape takes not only bold strides in lifestyle, it takes keen fashion sense. Here, we highlight some casual style essentials for the upscale urbanite. After all, when you live in a fashion-conscious city, style doesn’t take a day off.

Modern-meets-retro: when it comes to casual urban clothing, go for pieces that are simple and sleek, but with a dose of retro. The adidas Y-3 Nomad Jacket is a fresh example of utilitarian style with a bold twist. Interesting twists on classics are also a great way to achieve the urban-chic look. Take the adidas by Stella McCartney Cover Up Gym Sweater for example; its classic simplicity makes it a great closet staple.

City Kicks: Keep those daily walking commutes comfortable with a pair of sleek sneakers like the adidas Y-3 Honja Classic for men, or the superbly sporty adidas by Stella McCartney Thallo Ballerina flats.

Utilitarian bags: A busy life comes with lots of stuff. Keep your essentials squared away in a simple messenger tote like the adidas Y-3 Toile Porter or a sleek and roomy nylon backpack like adidas by Stella Mccartney backpack.
