We all know that streetwear is always popping and it usually sets the pace for what’s trending most of the time. You may not rock streetwear on a weekday if your job does not allow it, but you will find a way to rock it during the weekend or on certain occasions. This is because the casual look that comes with rocking streetwear is what most of us want. Most people would rock streetwear every day if only their work dress code allowed it. This explains why most startup CEO’s are always rocking casual wear seven days a week.
Bottoms are a big part of streetwear; they complement the tees, the street footwear, and jackets. A streetwear look wouldn’t be complete without bottoms. The most vital part of streetwear bottoms is learning to rock what suits your body type and figure. Otherwise, you may very quickly end up looking very unfashionable which is a big waste considering all the money you’ve spent on buying the bottoms and shoes to match them. You don’t need a stylist to show you what will fit your body, but just in case you don’t even know what your body measurements are, then I guess you do need to hire one. This way, you will no longer be buying pants that are too long or are not able to fit right with your shoes.
Let’s discuss the top 10 streetwear bottom styles, so that next time you’re shopping, you will make an informed decision.
