Hip-hop clothing – trendy apparel that’s capturing attention

Street wear has gone from the sidewalks and corners of Urban America, to the catwalks of New York, Los Angeles, and Milan in just a few seasons. The chic urban look has come full circle. Born from deep roots in the hip hop culture, the new version has a more sophisticated edge, as opposed to being oversized and bulky. Tailoring partnered with bright colorways, bold patterns, and rich textiles create a style that transcends the usual rules of fashion.

Denim jeans and t-shirts most often fuel the fire on the urban fashion scene, but that’s all in the past. Although those are classic wardrobe basics, the new versions are more mature and versatile.Leather jackets, and even jewelry are replacing traditional hip hop influenced pieces. Design details like photo real expression, graphics, studs, spikes and sequin embellishment update the look without straying too far from its original intentions.

For the ladies, there’s a wide range of silhouettes. Boxy or fitted, the styles retain their feminine touch without losing their rough edges. Lace, sheers, and fabrics with a soft touch can be paired with leather and embellished with design details like sequins.

Fashion is all about self expression, and street wear pushes those design ideals to the limit.

    Wear what you want to but check the mirror so you can be sure you look good before you leave the house. That’s it.

    As long as you can pull it off and you are comfortable with what you wear, then go for it!
