Take a stroll past Supreme in Soho, London, on a Saturday morning and you'll see lines of people queuing up outside the store. The buzz around the brand is huge. It's no surprise, really; ever since we saw David Beckham repping one of the Louis Vuitton x Supreme pieces back in January, which is when the major collab was confirmed, we've been watching the rise and rise of Supreme. And not just Supreme, streetwear in general.
From super-brands Vetements and Off-White leading the way with supersized hoodies and ultimate logo-ing to celeb brands, like Yeezy by Adidas and Ivy Park, being instant high street sell-outs, streetwear is the ultra-cool trend that isn't going anywhere.
Whilst the Kardashians and Hadids can pull off stepping out in boob-grazing crop tops, trackie pants, XXL hoodies and a pair of stilettos, not all of us are quite as into that vibe and it’s easy to come unstuck when it comes to wearing streetwear IRL. It's not normally my thing, but I'm now totally sold after trying separate pieces and working them into my everyday wardrobe.
Not quite sure how to introduce streetwear pieces into your everyday look? Here’s how: Opt for an Adidas hoodie under a smart trench, or look for silk when choosing your track pants – they feel much more luxe and less edgy. I'm also really into Maggie Marilyn as a brand; it incorporates sporty with feminine. Think asymmetric skirts with side stripes or silk ruffle sleeve tops with zip fronts. As for accessories, I am seriously into a super-high skinny boot to finish off a sports look, even if it is just an oversized tracksuit top.
