One of the hottest trends recently has been that of street style and urban-chic gradually establishing as part of a global fashion revolution. Changing spirits and even pop culture has led the youth of today on a hunt for authenticity and a way to express their personalities freely – streetwear styles have had a huge role to play here.

What is street style?

Known to have originated in Britain and now dominating most global urban centres, street style or streetwear is a comprehensive approach to fashion that is strictly individualistic. It includes structured styles, often season-less, that can intersect or even vastly differ from mainstream trends in fashion and accessories, may take inspiration from popular or subcultures and can incorporate wearable art elements as well – anything that authentically represents the individual’s persona or even mood.

This essentially means that, contrary to popular belief, street style is not just about big sneakers and baggy tracksuits – you can mix and match your favourite styles. For instance, a major trend in street fashion today is combining casual and formal wear, and elegance with athletic or athleisure wear as an attractive tool for representing oneself. Urban chic street style has come to incorporate structured and tailored wardrobe elements that ooze a suave elegance while staying comfortable.
