An Overview of Street Style
Street style is popular fashion which is believed to have emerged not only in studios but also from the streets. Street fashion is usually associated with urban culture and is normally seen at major urban centres. This style of dressing mainly consists of casual clothes that are used to portray a particular attitude. Though street dresses are available for men as well as women, it is quite common to see men in these dresses during social gatherings such as parties, casual get-togethers etc.
The popularity of this fashion can be attributed to several factors. It predates the existence of street life in the major cities of the world, which is why it was able to gain such popularity among people. Another factor is the impact of world war ii on the fashion industry. As the conflict continued in the third world countries, the need for comfortable clothing increased. Also, during the time of world war ii, men had to put on full costumes so as to survive in the cold winters. However, the new styles and designs enabled men to put on garments in comfortable styles.
The twentieth century witnessed a major change in the way men dress. With the onset of the industrial revolution in China, workers had gained greater control over their working conditions, and they were able to create a new kind of clothing, which included comfortable androgynous dressing. The new Chinese style of dressing, which included coats, sweaters, jeans and blouses with cuffs, facilitated men to look fashionable, at work and socially. Also, men were able to put on fashionable trousers, which helped them look more comfortable in the post-war period.
