Did you know that there is a series of unwritten dos and don’ts when it comes to styling staple streetwear? If you didn’t, don’t worry! You’re in the right place. In this post, we’ll talk you through some of the things to keep in mind as you start thinking about your next streetwear fit.
DO: Comfort Over Everything:
These days, streetwear is often a style that people associate with comfort. It has an athleisure-driven vibe but is also a style that incorporates jeans and easy-to-wear accessories like caps. Most of these outfits tend to fit loosely - that’s important to remember!
So if you’re eyeing something that you know is going to be restrictive, difficult to wear or simply not comfortable, then just know this will be a strong deviation from staple streetwear fashion and you may want to think twice about whether they can truly help you pull off an authentic look.
DON’T: Overdo The Logos:
A clear marker of staple streetwear is seeing logos printed on many pieces. It might be a subtle logo on the arm sleeve of a t-shirt or it could be front and centre on the middle of a sweatshirt. However logos appear on your clothes, they can be a great way to make a bold statement, which is what this style is all about.
However, there is a very important DON’T to keep in mind. Whatever you do, don’t overdo logos - and what we mean by this is picking pieces from various brands and mishmashing them together. Yes, perhaps the colours work as contrast but beyond that, it can look messy and very uncoordinated, which is what you want to avoid. Keep it simple and thank us later.
DON’T: Neglect Shoes:
When we talk about staple streetwear, shoes cannot be left out of the conversation. In fact, they can often make or break your outfit, so not putting any thought into what you wear on your feet can actually undo all the effort into coordinating your clothes. As many streetwear connoisseurs would say, sneakers are a fundamental part of final fits.
We would suggest not stressing yourself trying to bag the latest trending sneakers, but rather investing money into a pair that feels more timeless. Yes, bold sneakers that can add pops of bright colour are very cool and trendy, but if you’re still building your collection of sneakers, then looking for timeless ones is the way to go. Think of colours that will compliment your clothing and sneaker styles that feel classic. Not to mention, try to invest in pairs that will stand the test of time. Good quality sneakers are something you’ll be extremely grateful for once you’ve purchased them.
