The Streetwear Factor: How to Look Cool Without Really Trying

There’s no denying that the streetwear trend is here to stay. Ten years ago, streetwear was frowned upon by every major fashion gatekeeper (Sneakers on runway is a sign of blaspheme!). But today, streetwear staple such as sneakers are a ubiquitous sight in every major fashion presentation from Balenciaga to Lanvin, worn by everybody from Kendall Jenner to Celine Dion, and available in every size, colour, price and silhouette imaginable. Sneakers are not the only streetwear icon making a fashion revolution. Traditional tailored suits in luxurious material made way for a relaxed oversized-fit sweatshirt with bold prints and eye-raising acid-wash colour.

All around the world, fashionistas are having fun AND looking uber-cool mixing streetwear with high fashion. Here is our guide to incorporate streetwear into your wardrobe or as we would like to call it Our Guide to Looking Cool Without Really Trying (Because streetwear is, after all about the attitude):

 

 

 

 

1. Bigger is Better

We need to start off this segment by delivering the ugly truth to you…. streetwear is baggy and shapeless and pretty much oversized. Think T-shirt, jacket or sweater that is one size too big. To deliver a memorable look, we suggest pairing oversized silhouette with layered pieces to give it a more relaxed and cool appearance.

2. Logo, Logo and More Logo

In the fashion world, wearing your logo is like wearing your badge of honour – in either case, you need to wear it with pride. Whether it is on a tee, cap or sweatshirt, having a logo on your attire is an acknowledgement to the brand and it is a testament to your particular style tribe.
