Street style covers a broad spectrum. From putting a unique twist on runway trends to going against any trend just to prove a point. It embodies a style that is only pulled off with the appropriate culture or attitude backing it up. You won’t see captivating street style items at your local shopping mall, but rather some bits and pieces, that are then combined with unusual combinations to make a statement of expression and loyalty to the culture that it supports. The more socially unacceptable the culture is, the louder the street style speaks. So it only makes sense that the two cultures of skating and hip-hop that have been struggling to be accepted socially have spoken loud and clear in their styles.
There is no doubt that with the use of Instagram, street style has evolved to become a subculture that doesn’t seem to be diming it lights anytime soon. Not only is street style emerging fast, but South Korea is nearly an incubator for the most inspiring trends and styles. It’s essentially where designers go with a blank canvas, and by hitting the streets of Seoul, they are guaranteed to get more than what they’ve come for. But, how did all of this start, and what exactly is this street style like today? What would you find if you were to walk the streets of Seoul?

As the market becomes more and more saturated, products are becoming mass produced and less unique. Although there are many issues, such as workers rights and materials used, the bottom line is that quality is being traded for cheapness and at a strikingly high cost. Many high label brands are producing quality items, only to have similar brands mimic them with the stripped down, cheaper versions. The underlying problem with this is not only that typically these products are made in unjust ways, but that supporting this, contributes to the overflowing landfills that are detrimental to our well being.
Weather you’re the type of person always forgetting things,like the sunglasses on top of your head, or you have a specific chair in your bedroom you plan your outfits on for each day and have a notebook full of lists – there is no doubt that we all forget things sometimes no matter how hard we try. And we can all agree, when you really need something, such as some files for a presentation, or a bag for groceries – we have a sinking feeling in our stomch picturing it sitting out our kitchen counter, ready to go out the door with us that morning. It’s completely human forget things, especially when we’re busy, running around from task to task, thinking of 27 other things at the same time. That’s exactly why we love tips and tricks to make our life a little easier and help us in remember those little things on our busy days. And, of course, we all have keys, probably a lot of them, so here’s how to organize and add to your keyring so you never forget the important things.
As much as we would like to avoid first impressions making a lasting imprint, the reality is, they do. We are human, and unfortunately, we automatically paint a picture in our heads of what we think the person is like before we get to know them personally. Although, sometimes this never lasts, it is certainty there for the time being, before you meet that person again, or get to know them. Essentially, no matter how much you try not to judge, or try not to assume, first impressions are a reality, and sometimes taken really seriously. They can be the reason you do not get a job, or the reason you get scammed. They can separate friendships or begin relationships. They are seriously important. So, even if you have a winning personality and an exciting life, if your first impression says differently, the hash reality of it is, people will not treat you like they see you, and maybe it’s not necessarily how you are. Many things in our personality are hard to show through a first impression, but luckily, defining your personal style can help a lot. Here are 6 slip ups to avoid and how to fix them, so you can still own your personal style, and make a good impression while doing so.
Nothing says hipster like a smart pair of glasses frames….. Especially if their vintage… or vintage looking… or clear frames…. or wire frames…. Oh 🤔, I guess you just HAVE to have glasses…. OH YEAH, and if you’re a guy – you HAVE to have a beard too Anyway (I digress, I digress) The thing […]
It’s quite clear your personal style is something that its completely unique to you. No one is going to have their same favourite necklace that they always wear or their favourite vintage sweater from their grandmother they pull as soon as the leaves start to change. But, sometimes it can definitely be a statement, and unfortunately, misunderstood by some. Dressing up at the wrong event can cause people to judge you as snobby, or dressing in sneakers and jeans at a formal event can definitely be taken as a sign of disrespect.
