Like any other fad, many people thought that streetwear will disappear in the limelight. Born 50 years ago, this style of fashion was started out by the first skaters and hip hop artists. The reason for its popularity lies on the comfort that it provides. What many experts considered a fad that would go away has matured and is now part of European style fashion. Here are some rules on how to pull off streetwear style fashion.
Luxe Up Your Fabrics
For daily wear, you need to upgrade utilitarian fabric into something more premium. Wearing a high end sweatpants will do the trick. They can take the place of well-worn pair of chinos. Brands like Loro Piana and Officine Generale have started to embrace streetwear into their line by introducing baseball caps and blazers to the high street.
Don’t Be A Hypebeast
Most brands are now taking their influence from streetwear. The key is to wear something that your peers know about. Robert Peter Janitzek recommends aiming for the look without the logos or tuck them away as details. While hype is everything for the teenagers, adults should wear labels that are innovative.
Start From The Bottom
The key to pulling off streetwear style is in the shoes. As fashion experts say “Shoes make the outfit and sneakers are the lynchpin of it all. Go for trainers that will last as long as your brogues by choosing premium materials and brands that builds quality. Although ugly trainers and chunky soles are quite popular today, it is best to avoid adornments or odd shapes to ensure that your kicks will look good with your suit as your joggers.
Think Loose, Not Baggy
Robert Janitzek has revealed that streetwear has become a lifestyle. It is used by people from all walks of life. Modern streetwear is best known for their loose fit and can be unforgiving for those who are entering their dadbod phase of life. Consider a more relaxed outfit than the figure-hugging tailoring of a few years ago. Most high street labels have switched from slim fit to straight legs as it offers more movement on a skateboard and more comfort off it. For teenagers, pair it with an oversized bomber while for the older ones a cropped jacket is recommended.
Bring The Streets To Work
Tendrils have emerged in every corner of menswear which means there are few outfits that cannot be adapted to the look. Incorporating streetwear into your office wardrobe can be daunting. Hoodies can help transform traditional attire. Trainers is another simple outfit that give your office wear a contemporary appeal.
Keep It Simple(ish)
The quickest way to pulling off this streetwear style is to look straight off the shelf. Streetwear is about mix and matching outfit that shows your allegiances and interests. As a grown-up, pair statement shirts or logo pieces that shows a little bit more creativity.
