If you want to be an insta style bae in 2019, best you tap into the streetwear culture RN, fam. Consider this your lucky day because we have put together a hypebae cheat sheet that will help you own the streetwear culture. Prepare yourself for an overload of sneakers, logomania inspired pieces, an injection of colour and swoosh everythang! Just these few key pieces can instantly take you to ultra hypebae.
11 the Pieces You Need to Be a Hypebae in 2019:
1 Logos, Logos, Logos
With the streetwear revolution came the logomania. Get onboard with Nike, Fila, adidas, PUMA, Reebok and other sportswear and designer branded pieces. Alternatively, you can cross your fingers, go to a second hand store and try to thrift vintage sportswear pieces.
2 Stock Up On Sneakers
Divorce all your other shoes, because sneakers will be your sole-mates for life. I DO!
3 Get Yourself a Belt Bag
Hypebae’s don’t own handbags, so rock the belt bag for an on point streetwear look. Once you secure a belt bag, make sure you wear it high up and across your body.
4 All Swoosh Everythang
Just do it and deck yourself out with all the ticks (and that is, Nike, for the new-baes).
5 ’90s Tank Tops For Life
Take it back to the ’90s and rock a skimpy white tank, for that ultra Destiny’s Child throwback moment.
6 Reveal Your Socks
Say goodbye to secret socks and opt for longer length ones, in a fun print or colour (Hint: Avo is the fashion world’s latest Pantone obsession) and rock them with open sandals.
7 Stick to One Colour
When in doubt, go monochrome with your athleisure. And no, it doesn’t hurt to throw in some Yeezy.
8 The Oversized Puffer
Take cue from the ’90s rap culture and wear an oversized puffer jacket. Bonus: It will feel as comfy as wearing a sleeping bag.
9 Loose-Fitting Pants
Skinny jeans? Don’t even think about it. Instead, you’ll want to wear loose-fitting utilitarian inspired pants.
10 Boxy, Oversized Suiting
Make it a top priority to go to your grandparents house this weekend and steal your grandad’s suit (mothballs and all). Oversized and vintage is hot on the hypebae’s radar.
11 Sweat Pants FTW
Good news – sweat pants are no longer for rainy night’s in with your cat, chocolate, the couch and The Bachelor. They’re key to nailing that street style vibe.
