Aside from its mammoth popularity over the years, one of the best things about streetwear fashion is that it’s easy to experiment with. You can wear and pair different outfits without feeling as if you’re breaking any rules. In other words, you dictate your own style, so there’s a lot of freedom and versatility in streetwear. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t end up looking like a clown. Sorry to be harsh, but there are certain choices you can make (or fail to make), only to end up looking ridiculous!
When I first moved to New York City about 20 years ago, I didn’t know many people, and so I spent a lot of time by myself, exploring my East Village neighborhood, and just people watching. On Sunday afternoons, I used to enjoy sitting at a window table at the late, great 7A Restaurant, having a cheap, boozy brunch while watching the parade of tattooed rockers and rock star wannabes that would pass me by on their way to their mid-afternoon adventures. It’s true what they say that some of the best forms of entertainment are totally free.
