5 Rules to Rocking Streetwear:
Just like with any other fashion trend, there are some rules that need to be followed when rocking streetwear. You don’t want to be the odd one out of the crowd of street trendy people because you broke one or several of these rules.
- Oversize is the Right Size
When it comes to streetwear fashion, skinny jeans and tight t-shirts are a strict no-no. This might sound like an insult to the countless hours you spend in the gym but the street doesn’t care about that. Wear something that is comfortably large. However, this does not mean that you put on clothes that will make you swim in them. One size larger than your normal size is ideal. Layers of clothes are also acceptable.
- Keep Your Shoes Squeaky Clean
Shoes are the most important item in streetwear fashion. The right clothes with the wrong shoes will make you turn heads for all the wrong reasons. The golden rule for shoes in streetwear is to make sure that they are in contrast with the rest of your clothes, therefore noticeable. Since several people like their streetwear monochrome, bright shoes are preferred. For many, white is the most preferred choice of shoes since it can match with almost every other color. When you decide to go for white shoes, make sure that they are sparkling white. Any speck of dirt on your white sneakers could move you from fashion hero to zero.
- Headwear is Essential
The most important streetwear fashion accessory is the headwear. Despite what type of hair do you have donned. Baseball caps, beanies, bandanas, and snapbacks are a must have item for any streetwear fashion aficionado. The street has always been a good friend of these items. In the absence of these, an oversized jumper with a hoodie can also do the trick. Whatever you do, just don’t leave your bald head exposed to the elements. That’s not the street!
- Don’t Shy Away from Shorts
A common misconception among some people is that shorts and street fashion are incompatible. Nothing could be further from the truth. On a hot summer afternoon, it’s never a good idea to put on what is described as the ideal ‘street look’ – baggy jeans, a hoodie and heavy boots. If the sweat doesn’t kill you, the discomfort surely will! During such times, a pair of black drop crotch shorts with a matching t-shirt from your favorite brand will totally be a hit for you. Not only is it comfortable but it is fashionable as well.
- Wear that Logo Loud and Proud
The essence of streetwear fashion is to make a statement. Unlike other fashion styles where an individual has to ask you what you’re wearing, a majority of the time in streetwear fashion, you let the logo speak for itself. Think of all the reputable street brands you know of and you will find that they all print their logos in huge letters on the front or all over.
