Walking down along the road with dim lights and the faint sound of music from the street across. Chains from bomber shoes clanking with the metal plates on-road and guitar sounds from the backyard. Well, you guess it right, a street scenario. Streets get lively due to these artists who jam across tea stalls and have sudden dance face-offs. It would be a no-shocker if you see someone skateboarding across the gutter or rapping competitions played, it is a normal culture here. Street fashion dates back to the 1900s, with its origin in California. It is a mixed culture of hip hop and skaters, which is liked by the public a little too much.
Graphic tees, hoodies, sneakers, tie-dye clothes, etc. are a part of your daily comfortable dressing, and an added pinch of skateboards, bomber jackets, tattoos, and piercings surely make you one of a kind. Moreover, this is the ‘cool kid’ stuff and youth culture people talk about!
Firstly let us dig a bit deeper into this concept and enrich our bond with this style. Moreover, who knows you would want to adapt the street style starting from today!
‘Art is not to be taught in Academics. It is what one looks at, not what one listens to, that makes the artist. The real schools should be the streets.’
