Skateboarding is more than a hobby – it’s a way of life. If you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk that walk. Fetch drab is a rite of passage if you ride. It’s time to revamp your wardrobe.
Here are four fashion statements to fall in love with if you’re a skateboarder.
1. The snapback
Let’s face it ladies – we look awesome with backwards hats. That’s probably why we’re always stealing them from our boyfriends. Score one of your own or borrow one of your friend’s old hats to pull off a more vintage look. It’s a good thing these babies are back in style.
As Evo explained, snapbacks took a backseat to fitted caps for a while there, until hip hop artists brought them back in the 80s and 90s. You can thank a few choice rappers for this adorable skater accessory. Who knew?
2. Killer skater kicks
Sneakers are an awesome accent to any outfit. Whether you go high tops or low tops, pair them with a tomboy crop top and a pair of ripped jeans. Throw on your snapback and hop on your set of wheels. The world is your oyster.
3. A fierce grunge band shirt
No matter your jam, head to a flea market to pick through the clothes racks for an old-school punk rocker T-shirt. The more rips the better. Skaters are known to take a beating from the road rash and the spills.
4. Baby-G watch swag
Is there anything cuter than the bright orange Baby-G pink series watch? Not only does the sporty arm candy come complete with an LED light – great for an evening skate – it’s also shock- and water-resistant. Consider it a helmet for your wrist. It also comes in white, black and turquoise.
