What exactly is streetwear?

Streetwear first started gaining momentum in the 1980s. Heavily influenced by skater culture and hip hop culture, this style quickly took over. Synonymous with Cali inspired fashion, streetwear can easily be recognized by its baggy pants, graphic tees, baseball caps and sneakers. This style is all about being comfortable. That, naturally, stems from the fact that it was influenced by the skater culture where freedom of movement was extremely important. Nowadays, streetwear has made its way onto the runway. Furthermore, there are brands out there who have made billions of dollars by selling this comfortable style. Everyone is wearing street fashion – from the people you walk by every day, to the A-list celebrities, to businessmen and runway models. Streetwear style has completely taken over the world.

Fashion that is all about being comfortable is bound to be popular, especially nowadays

Get baggy with it

Proportions don’t really mean anything in streetwear fashion. The baggier your clothes are, the more fashionable you are going to be. Baggy pants with an oversized hoodie – why not? Oversized coat matched with a baggy tracksuit – yes, please! Oversized everything is part of this style. You can mix and match in any way you want. If you want ot show off some curves, however, you can always mix the proportions with just an oversized coat or hoodie. Choice is yours! Like we already said, streetwear culture is all about expressing yourself in your own way.

It doesn’t get more comfy than that – that is why streetwear is perfect for airport fashion and traveling in general

Invest in sneakers

Sneaker culture is a multi-billion dollar business. People spend thousands of dollars for limited edition sneakers. Some even collect sneakers. That is why, sneakers are a big part of good streetwear outfits. Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Converse, Vans, these are just a few of the many brands who have cashed out because of the sneaker culture. Some of these brands have had collaborations with celebrities or high-end fashion brands. The sneakers from these collaborative collections can be worth thousands of dollars and still sell out in a few days. Celebrities like Kanye West and Travis Scott have made waves with their separate collaborations. Yeezes, for example, have become a big part of Adidas’ identity. And do we need to even mention Michael Jordan and the Jordan Brand? I mean, if you don’t own Air Jordan Ones, are you even a part of the sneaker culture?

The Air Jordan One sneakers are a must have item in your wardrobe, just ask any celebrity, like Bella Hadid, for example

Accessorize your streetwear outfits

Layering is a big part of this style’s identity. What’s more accessories are very important. Baseball caps, beanies, cross body bags – these are all a part of the streetwear outfits. These accessories add character to your outfit. What’s more, they can add some color, if for example you have decided to go all black with your outfit. A baseball cap in a bright color can add some depth to your style. Baseball caps are also a great way to express your love for a certain sports team or brand. And like we already stated self-expression is extremely important for the streetwear style.

Accessorize and add some character to your outfit

Streetwear outfits with logos

Brands are a big deal when it comes to streetwear culture. Most streetwear brands have cult followings. One of the reasons why is becase the style demands logos. Expressing your love for a certain brand is like expressing your own values. That is why, most streetwear brands include large logos on their clothes. That way, the wearer can proudly represent the brand. On the other hand, the brand itself can market their goods without even paying for it. Seeing a large logo on a nice hoodie, for example, can peak your interest and make you look up the brand. Which, in turn, will make you buy the brand. In general, proffessing your love for a brand and wearing their logo proudly is a big part of the streetwear fashion.

The logo madness and hype is real

What are the most popular streetwear brands?

When it comes to brands there are a few, which really take center stage in streetwear culture. The most popular one is definitely Nike. Because of its range and inclusive price points, Nike has always been the most wearable brand out there. Especially, since the introduction of the Jordan Brand, they have absolutely cemented their legacy in streetwear culture. Adidas isn’t that far behind either. On the other hand, though, there are those brands, who people have to break the bank to get their hands on, yet they still wear them. That is because of the hype around these brands. Not only do they have some of the most recognizable brands out there, they are also super exclusive.
