The streetwear trend is showing no signs of slowing down. Everywhere you look you see white socks, oversized puffers and thick-sole trainers. If you want to be a sheep, follow these ten hacks below.
1. It starts with white socks
Get yourself a good pair and buy plenty because you will need to wear it every day.
2. Roll up the hem of your trousers
You need to show off your epic white socks.
3. Decide on a logo
Think back to your school days when you got laughed at for wearing Fila, Ellesse, and Champion. Jokes on them because guess what’s cool again? The vintage sports logo. So, go out and buy a t-shirt, sweatshirt, tracksuit. This is your redemption moment, show your bullies that you are cool again.
4. Choose your outerwear
For winter it’s all about the oversized puffers. For warmer days, the track jacket is your go-to
5. The accessory
6. The trainer
For trainers think ugly duckling. Find the ugliest trainer imaginable and wear it! Look in the mirror for inspiration. If you are not a fan of thick-sole ugly trainers, go old school. You have a choice of Vans or Converse. Choices.
If you are tired of looking like a P.E teacher, switch to a denim look. Have indigo denim and a light wash on rotation. Don’t forget that you are allowed to wear double denim so make sure you have a denim jacket.
8. On your head
For your hat, you have a few options. In winter choose the fisherman beanie because covering your ears is not cool. For the warmer days, you have a plethora of options. My favourite is the bucket hat.
For silhouette think oversized, relaxed. No slim or skinny fits in sight.
10. The final touch
Finally. A hoodie. It will be your essential layering piece.
There you have it, my 10 hacks to follow the streetwear trend.
