You can get into streetwear through various avenues. This can be done by building up your basic everyday items and through finding a style influence that you admire.

Ways to get into streetwear:

- Experiment with Colours and Styles
- Read Up on the History
- Buy Seasonal Items
1. Build Up Your Basics
Building up a collection of basic and staple streetwear items is a perfect starting point to get into streetwear.
Basic streetwear clothing can include items such as simple t-shirts, staple trainers as well as hoodies. These items allow you to build outfits around them.
Basic Streetwear Items We Recommend
This T Shirt is beautifully crafted, is slim fitting and designed with soft cotton. It is the perfect addition to any growing streetwear wardrobe. As it does not feature a large design, this enables this to be paired with a variety of other more colourful streetwear items.
Staple to any streetwear wardrobe, the hoody is perfect for those colder or wetter days. The logo featured on the chest is subtle but stylish, helping to become a staple in your forming wardrobe.
2. Find a Style Influence
Whether rapper, sport star or a personal friend, finding a style influence will help you to understand what style you are intrigued by.
Following this person on social media, or other channels, will allow you to gain an understanding of the items they like to wear. Learning what works for them and adapting this to your own look will help you to experiment, building your confidence.
Identifying specific items and styles from these influences can lead you to purchase the same, or similar items, to emulate their style.
3. Experiment with Colours and Styles
Understanding which colours, shapes and styles suit your body and fit your personal style journey is incredibly important. The more you experiment with your style, the more confident you will feel in your new wardrobe items.
Experimenting can be challenging if you are new, but experimenting can help you to learn exactly what you love to wear.
4. Read Up on the History of Streetwear
Learning about the origins and evolution of streetwear will help you to understand the journey streetwear has gone on. This allows you to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and you can adapt your style to fit accordingly.
It will also help you to understand what streetwear items have been put together historically, helping you to build your outfits.
5. Buy Seasonal Items
Once you have built up a collection of basics for your streetwear wardrobe, it is time to follow the seasonal trends. This means dressing for the correct seasons and weather patterns.
If you are heading into winter, you are going to need some warmer clothing. This includes the addition of streetwear coats, streetwear jeans and hoodies.
Seasonal Streetwear Items we would recommend:
Heading into the colder seasons, wrapping up warm is a main priority. Don’t compromise your fashion choices for warmth here, as you can get a two in one item. The padded jacket is lined with soft cosy sherpa to gain maximum warmth.
This gilet can be styled in a way to adapt to all weather conditions. It is a perfect standalone piece or can be styled up with cargos.
To conclude, streetwear is all about being able to express yourself through your clothing. Start by building your wardrobe up and then experiment with your style choices, becoming bolder and more confident in what you wear.
