Knowing how to style streetwear fashion is a critical skill to have right now. Why?
Because streetwear clothing, outfits, and brands have become very popular in 2020.
A quick look online lets you find endless posts about streetwear styles.
However, most of these guides are outdated or irrelevant.
In this article, I’ll share with you the latest streetwear fashion styles from who matters the most:
Here are five female celebrities sharing their tips and secrets on streetwear styles, for all the girls out there.
1. Break down the color, break it hard!
How many of you remember ‘The Matrix’?
The movie was – and remains – an excellent source of streetwear style inspiration.
With the announcement of the new Matrix movie coming this year, these streetwear outfits are making a comeback.
Yet, with a twist: in bold and powerful colors, as exemplified by Rihanna’s outfit above.
You can also wear a long Kimono jacket to beautifully flavor your streetwear with a Japanese fashion influence.
2. Don’t be afraid to wear socks, with a dash o color as well.
Keep in mind that modern designers emerge every day and no trend lasts forever.
The same applies to streetwear styles; some are more popular than others.
However, there’s one exception – the classic Japanese streetwear style.
Oversized hoodie, three-quarter shorts, sneakers, high socks, this streetwear style will never go out of fashion.
The color choice does not matter much, but ideally, you’ll go for white or black.
However, make sure you also add something that ‘breaks down the color’, as Billie did here with her neon-green top.
And don’t forget, sneakers are a very important (if not the most) part of this unique streetwear style.
There are many sneakers online stores out there, but make sure you’ll get yours from legit sneaker websites.
3. Undo your laces for an extra touch of ‘I don’t give a f..k’.
Another Matrix-inspired streetwear style, in vogue now in 2020, is the ‘oversized office suit‘.
The style works wonders on girls and Bella Hadid, in the pic above, is the perfect example.
Bella has matched the suit with a pair of casual trainers and a tank top, both white.
Yet, she cleverly breaks down the grey-white color combination with a bright red book.
This style and color combo has gained massive popularity thanks to a TikTok subculture, called ‘Dark Academia‘.
Overall, the style oozes a powerful, independent, hard-working woman.
4. Counter any classic shoes with a sporty hat.
A new streetwear style catching up this year is the ‘American blend’.
Just like the Japanese streetwear style, the American style introduces its own characteristic cultural elements.
For example, Tyana Taylor’s outfit choice in the pic above blends the classic denim jacket with a truck driver cap.
While it might seem chaotic, Tyana’s streetwear outfit is very elaborate.
The bag, earrings, and nails create the first color choice, the metallic grey.
The second color choice resides in the milky brown of the dress and the boots.
Finally, both colors are beautifully broken down by the blue denim jacket.
5. Take it easy with the logos on any branded outfits.
Kaia Gerber’s streetwear style in the pic above exemplifies best the ‘silent logo’ ethos.
When it comes to streetwear and brand logos, you have two choices.
Either go loud AF, a trend popular in Japanese streetwear, in particular Kyoto streetwear.
Or, go totally silent, with no logos at all, more popular in Europe and the USA.
Right now, in 2020, the silent logo streetwear style primes, so make sure you tune it down.
