Hip Hop Fashion Style: Embracing Urban Authenticity
Hip hop fashion style embodies urban authenticity, characterized by its bold and expressive elements. From oversized silhouettes and streetwear staples to vibrant colors and statement accessories, this style reflects the cultural essence of the streets.
Hip-Hop was born in New York City in the late 1970s and the related fashion reflected streetwear that kids in the Bronx already had in their possession, like bomber jackets, tracksuits, and sneakers with oversized shoelaces. Hip hop’s trademark “street” look was created by Run-DMC, who famously adopted side-striped tracksuits and lace-less shell-toed sneakers as their signature uniform.
Hip-hop fashion style is based on an attitude that rails against limitations and boundaries. This fashion style has evolved in unique ways over time. A new era of hip-hop & high fashion was ushered in as hip-hop artists gained popularity in the 21st century. Women's hip-hop wear is accompanied by items such as bamboo earrings, designer handbags, name chains, midriff tops, bra tops, short skirts, tight jeans, high boots, straight hair weaves and braids, tattoos and false fingernails and oversized gold jewelry.
