You’re No Hypebeast Without These 2018 “Streetwear” Trends

16 March 2018 | Febriana Ramadhanya

Whether you love or hate 'em, deep down inside we all want to achieve hypebeast status. Though the term usually refers to skateboarding streetwear brands, luxury brands have started implementing the concept of streetwear into their collections. The term is now used to refer to any fashion visionaries who dare to step out of their comfort zones and create new fashion trends along the way.

Below are four "streetwear" fashion trends in 2018 that you can start incorporating in your day to day outfits.

Loud statements

So far, 2018 is a year filled with socioeconomic progresses and regresses and what better way to showcase your alliance and support for marginalized communities than expressing it through your clothes. A popular trend from the recent fashion runways is the incorporation of loud, graphic statements on tops, coats, jackets, and more.

A good way to start implementing statements in your streetwear attire is with by wearing this sweatshirt by Givenchy. This black sweatshirt features a quite important message at the front surrounded by geometrical designs, easily pairable with denim jeans or khakis. This Givenchy sweatshirt is also a great way to show your appreciation for the late legendary designer who passed away earlier in March.

The thicker the better

Fashion trends throughout the years have often covered both women and menswear and the fashion trends in 2018 are no different. A prominent trend for 2018 is to layer up with striking outerwear, especially with the long coats typically worn for winter.

Take the above full-length jacket from Maison Margiela. On its own, the jacket may look like it’s not very eye-catching. Whether you're dressing it down or up, by layering it up with bold shirts, unique trousers, and stylish shoes, it will be giving it an extra edge, that's streetwear enough.

Pump it up

Pumped sneakers can be dated all the way back to the '80s when Reebok released their Reebok Pump shoes in 1989. Lately, luxury labels want to join the bandwagon and create sportswear-inspired shoes and found that pumped sneakers are the best way to get the attention of millennials and hypebeasts everywhere.

From Balenciaga to Yeezy, many high fashion labels have at least one pair of pumped sneakers in their collection. This pair of Marni pumped sneakers has designs that are quintessentially hypebeast. The usage of wide Velcro straps instead of laces, higher collars, and pumped-up white soles are some of the most important elements for a pair of fashion-forward pumped sneakers.

In suits we trust

The fashion trend in 2018 takes men's' power suits to a whole other level. You can still follow the basic trousers, shirt, and blazer formula to build your suit, but this is 2018 and nobody wants to be basic. "Streetwear" suits are assembled with a mixture of pieces with various patterns, colors, and designs.

Switch up your blazer with a graphic cardigan like the one above from Moschino and your pants to a pair of oversized or baggy trousers like these casual pants from DSquared2. Finish off your "streetwear" suit with your trusty white sneakers, preferably a pair of white sneakers from Adidas. Consider mixing and matching the fabrics of your suit by wearing a leather coat, dark jeans, and a pair of faux fur loafers or mules.

These four trends are considered the most prominent across all of the runways. They are also a great way for beginner hypebeasts and amateur fashion connoisseurs to step up their style game.
