What to wear: streetwear


Streetwear could be described as the ultimate form of casual comfort. A style that mixes graphic-heavy hoodies and T-shirts, relaxed sportswear, and sneakers, of course.

It's a limit-pushing, genderless, 'can't-exactly put-your-finger-on-it' sort of cool, and we can't hit the streets anymore without catching someone sporting the style.

'Cool' almost feels as too basic of a word to describe streetwear. The style that was once reserved for skaters and surfers to express their individuality has now been borrowed by anyone from the cool kid next door to your best friend's mom. The edgy, but always relaxed look has become part of the everyday scene, and while it may be harder to spot subcultures because of it, it is something to celebrate.


The trick to standing out in comfort this season is to embrace the key message of streetwear: comfort. This can be done by replacing your heels for kicks or taking it up a notch by donning track pants without a gym in sight. But it isn't just sweat pants that make for a solid streetwear look. The entire range of athleisure items is up to the task. Cozy hoodies have become an it-girl staple over the last years, as well as having the guts to speak your mind. While you can figuratively wear your heart on your sleeve, you can also plaster it quite literally as a slogan over anything from sneakers to denim skirts. When trying to get into the streetwear vibe, it all boils down to thinking a little less J.Lo and a little more Jenny from the block.
