Street Artist Clothing Essentials

Every street artist has to be dressed to impress. Why? Because not only are they inspired by acts against society and breaking the law, but they also do it for the looks. Everyone knows that first impressions last a lifetime. You don't have to be a vandal in order to look like one, but you must dress accordingly.

Also, if you are a street artist, then people will definitely take you seriously if you plan on making a career out of it or at least obtaining the legal wall permit you've been wanting. Like any dress style, there are certain essentials every street artists must have:

  • Beanie/Hat
  • Shirt
  • Hoodie
  • Watch
  • Jeans
  • Belt
  • Backpack
  • Headphone
  • Sneakers
  • Sunglasses

Obviously, you don't have to dress with all these on at the same time. However, do make it a habit to change your look on a daily basis by accessorizing and mix and matching essentials.


Streetwear Gear

Streetwear clothing has been around for a very long time. As a matter of fact, it is very difficult to define as a specific style. There is just such a very broad definition. We do believe that streetwear was born in Los Angeles, California. During this time frame, the surfer community was experiencing drastic growth.

Although it is not easily defined, the streetwear gear may consist of comfortable, casual clothing such as baseball caps, t-shirts, jeans, and sneakers. Streetwear is one of the biggest segments of the apparel business. Over the past years, a variety of groups have remained faithful to this fashion attire—from rappers to skaters and even hipsters.

  5. Last but not least is Karmaloop. This company was designed specifically to take over the streetwear game. I am not talking about just eCommerce, but also an entire underground community of style.

Bottom line, Karmaloop has constantly remained on their game. In fact, their products were sold so great that any left-overs were pushed on an exclusive boutique of Together, these two have formed a power-house, seeing advertisements on just about any hip website available.
