Understanding Street Fashion

Street fashion is fashionable apparel generally considered to have appeared not in boutiques, but on the streets. Street fashion is typically associated with youths and is often found in large urban centers such as Tokyo, Moscow, Cairo, and Brasilia. In recent years, street fashion has been popularized by celebrities. Actors are seen sporting street fashion in movies such as Happy Days, The Breakfast Club, Glee, and Saturday Night Live. Actresses like Drew Barrymore, Britney Spears, Madonna, and Nicole Ritchie have all been photographed wearing street fashion clothing.

Although the styles of many popular celebrities make people associate street fashion with youths, it is not uncommon to see middle-aged people dressed in street fashion. A popular trend in high society circles to adopt a younger look is to dress in younger fashions. Celebrities like Britney Spears and Nicole Ritchie have made it clear that they prefer to wear street clothes to give them a more youthful look. As an example, when sporting her oversized, customized Juicy sweatshirt at a concert, Britney Spears sported a bright, oversized shirt covered in fluorescent pink. This image of a young woman dressed in a distinctive style that is cutting edge for her age is not unique to either gender and can be seen by anyone who looks.

Urban street fashion has come into its own as designers take cues from current pop culture to create cutting-edge fashions. As urban music and styles become more prominent in mainstream fashion, the styles and trends associated with it will likely continue to evolve and grow as a popular fashion trend. Urban street clothes and accessories will continue to draw in new customers as people adopt these clothes as a trendy, unique way to dress.
