Streetwear is the biggest thing within the fashion industry, gathering the attention of brands renowned for their high-level tailoring and design like Gucci and Louis Vuitton. LV, for example, recently rebranded focusing more on their streetwear line, especially given the fact that they hired the OFF-White founder and ex Kanye West’s creative director Virgil Abloh as their new creative director. with that being said, it’s pretty clear that streetwear has indeed reached a level where you must know how to wear things and how to separate from the pure hypebeast culture, which is slowly moving to a more educated streetwear style. Let’s break down 4 tips that you can use now to better wear any streetwear piece.
Tip Number 1: Stop Flexing
When it comes to streetwear, many people think that simply showing off a big brand by wearing certain pieces is the right way of wearing an outfit. The above-mentioned statement is usually associated with the hypebeast culture, that heavily focuses on wearing loud, flashy pieces that have a strong „hype“ around them. In 2018, things are definitely changing, bringing back an overall sense of finesse and coexistence between colours and pieces, avoiding the „rainbow of random stuff“ that usually was associated with hypebeasts who were trying to show off their new Supreme Box Logo
Tip Number 2: Brands
Supreme, Bape, Anti Social Social Club and many others are the „big ones“ that everyone knows within the area but, in the end, these are not the best/most trendy ones on the market. If you’re a streetwear enthusiast then you definitely know that streetwear starts and moves in Asia, with Korea and Japan being the biggest leaders. Japan is definitely ruling this upcoming fall with the new Comme des Garcons line dropping shortly. CDG is probably one of the most underrated brands within the streetwear sector and, given the level of quality they usually provide, that’s pretty sad to say.
Tip Number 3: Shoes
I know, every streetwear enthusiast is waiting for the new Yeezy V3 to drop, which is quite a big deal, but it’s important to understand that Yeezys are not the only pair of shoes available on the market when it comes to streetwear. This fall will definitely be guided by dad’s shoes like Balenciaga Triple S, which are indeed stronger than ever, and OFF-White collabs that are coming back this upcoming November with the brand new Air Max 97.
Tip Number 4: Hats And Accessories
A considerable part of every streetwear outfit is definitely related to accessories, whether if related to pieces like mesh trucker hats or jewels, it’s important to not exaggerate wearing fakes or „loud“ pieces if you want your outfit to look proper and not too boor.
