Street Wear

24th August 2012 | Posted in Mens

It's one of the fastest growing trends in the Uk, and there has been no better time to get on board with the street wear style than right now. This very moment. Instantly. Now.

Before we delve into exactly what your wardrobe needs to help you pull off the look, there are a few things you'll require to look like you were spawned from the streets of Shoreditch.

Number one: Grow a beard. Whether it's a full beehive, or just stubble, you will need a half decent beard to help give you that essential 'devil may care' look.

Number two: Get a haircut that's a bit out there. Don't go mad though and end up with a wedge cut that wouldn't look out of place in a Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Number three: Be a nineties kid. Rock a G-Shock. Get a tape deck, hell, find yourself a brand spanking new Tamagotchi if you can.

Now that's everything we can't provide for you sorted, let's take a look a the most important part of street wear; the clothes, of course... but first. A bit of beard inspiration

Footwear

Let's face it, there's not a lot else that can determine the look that you're going for. For example-don't wear flip flops to a wedding reception in Hull.

With this in mind, we've selected three iconic styles that a street kid shouldn't be without. We start with the infamous, classic Converse All Star High Top. Whether they're crisp white or bruised and battered, they are the daddy's of street cool. Wear them with skinny jeans or shorts, you just can not go wrong with them. Ever.

If your feeling nostalgic and want to take a venture into the past of street wear, look no further than the Adidas Gazelle. Shown below in suede, they're the perfect profile for rolling your jeans up and showing a bit of mankle. It's a blast from the past, but possibly even cooler than before.

Fancy something chunkier? Vulcanized high profiled soles are bang in trend at the minute, thanks to that generic skate brand that literally everyone is obsessing over. Fancy something a little different? Look no further than Creative Recreation- a breath of fresh air in a quite stale trainer market. Que the boo's...

Jeans

There aren't many things in this life better than a good fitting pair of jeans. There aren't many jeans in life as good as a pair of Nudie's. If you love skinny jeans (if you don't then, well, you should) then you will love fits from Nudie such as Grim Tim and Thin Finn. In any wash these jeans will compliment your new street wear style perfectly. Oh, and they're now made from 100% organic cotton, making them earth friendly too. So you can look good, and save the world. wowzers.

Flat Peaks

The words of Mr Tinie Tempah pretty much sum up how big flat peaks are right now; 'Look at my jacket and hat, so damn beserk.' (beserk being a good thing). The ones shown below are a Trainer Spotter x New Era collaboration of Snap Back's (remember that 90's kids?), and pretty much the absolute pinnacle in head wear if you don't want to go own the American sports team's logo route. Sure, it'll cover up that amazing new hair cut. But hey, fashion's fashion. Right?
