The person who came up with street fashion never intended it for runways or the red carpet. At first street fashion came from the grassroots but was later adopted by general fashion. Street fashion means a style that is simple, comfortable and that shows individuality. Anything that can be worn outside fashion studio and runways is what street fashion encompasses. You can wear anything in the streets an automatically it will fall into street fashion. Of course swimsuits and bikinis do not fall under this dress code because no one can imagine wearing them outdoors and mostly when you are in a hurry to cross the road.
The youth is coming up with new benchmarks by breaking the monotony and that is why they are strongly related to street fashion. This street fashion did not come from urban centers, but general fashion adopted them after the style became very popular, and therefore these urban centers are considered the place of birth of street fashion. Because of their sturdiness, the now famous ubiquitous jeans used to be worn by farmers. In street fashion, they became a necessary component just the other day.
This fashion style requires you to have a full eye to see variety, you have to be very confident to wear the apparels and have a deaf ear when it comes to peoples opinions. Street fashion is very haphazard, it does not follow any trends and is all about what you feel you want to wear. Many have been asking whether people have embraced street fashion. With street fashion, you are guaranteed variety, space to diverse cultures, and your creativity and vision can be showcased.
Street fashion is the only way that the past could have been revived, and the past sustained. The interpretation of this style highly depend on different cliques that the youths are are in. Such a clique tries to live life in the most natural way and therefore showcases this through their dress code. Street fashion is in one way or the other being influenced by media and celebrities, if a celebrity decides to wear cut out boots and a belt bag, this will be the new trend in the market from that time onwards.
Currently, the sense of fashion that was during the time of our parents is what has come up. Hand spun cotton has replaced the flared high waist pants that were being worn in the 1960’s. The influence of hip-hop on the street fashion apparel can also be seen as people are now wearing low waist jeans, oversize T-shirts and very heavy jewellery. A category that has recently come up is known as street chic. The new street chic fashion is only for women as it is confined to women clothing. A good thing about street chic fashion is that you can wear anything you feel like at any given time and place.
