The hip-hop genre has been influencing the world of fashion since its breakthrough onto the music scene in the seventies. We’ve seen velour tracksuits, MC Hammer pants and enough gold chains to set up our own jewellery shop. Today the hip-hop fashion scene is an innovative mix of past and current styles, resulting in edgy, versatile and downright fresh designs. If you’re heading to a festival in the next few weeks and need help piecing together an outfit that won’t get boo-ed off stage then simply take a look through Zalando’s recommendations for hip-hop festival fashion.
Make a statement with hip-hop festival fashion
Many people would say that music and fashion cannot be separated. When it comes to hip-hop fashion for festivals, appreciation for the music is matched with a love of the artists’ styles. So much so that big names such as Wu-Tang Clan, Nelly, OutKast and Lil’ Wayne have actually developed their own clothing lines that allow fans to get the music as well as the clothes of their favourite artists. Slogan tees form a big part of these collections and lyrics are often recycled onto the front of tops and jumpers to show people what kind of things are being played through your headphones. Sportswear is another important feature when it comes to hip-hop – being able to get down when your favourite song comes on is just as important as looking the part. Make sure you can drop it low by browsing through the hip-hop festival fashion collection and get yourself a pair of quality high-tops or sporty pumps to make sure you look the part.
Hip-hop festival fashion: Urban style for urban beats
Luckily, you don’t have to weigh yourself down with your own body weight in gold chains to mirror the hip-hop vibe today. Current designers have cleverly brought the hip-hop flavour to modern creations - for example, metallics replace the tonnes of jewellery to give a subtle look that still looks ghetto fabulous. You could also choose floaty maxi skirts instead of the original MC Hammer pants and team them with fitted crop tops for an effortlessly cool and feminine look. Or go for a printed t-shirt with cut-off denim shorts and neon trainers to create casual styles that will become daily outfit choices long after the festival is over. Zalando has put all the best hip hop festival fashions together in one place to help you piece your festival outfit together with only a few clicks of a button! So enjoy browsing through the collection today, available to order on Zalando.co.uk.
