Gorpcore, campcore, adventurecore and naturecore are fashion aesthetics that celebrate nature. RSO incorporates GORP into streetwear with these looks.
Gorpcore, one of the latest fashion aesthetics, borrows looks from hikers and campers — cargo pants, puffer jackets and vests, hiking-style boots — and styles them for everyday looks. It combines baggy silhouettes, a multitude of earthy colors, and comfortable but utilitarian wardrobe pieces. The gorpcore aesthetic is functional fashion with an outdoor flare, but stylish. Celebrities like A$AP Rocky, Bella Hadid, Justin Bieber, and Kendall Jenner have all tried their hands at the gorpcore fashion aesthetic.
A lot of fashion aesthetics are about copying looks from various hobbies and interests and incorporating them into everyday fashion. Take for instance athleisure wear, which incorporates jerseys, tracksuits, basketball tanks, and the like into wearable streetwear fashion.
Fun fact: The acronym GORP stands for Good Ol’ Raisins and Peanuts, which is a common way to describe trail mix.
Gorpcore is close to campcore, adventurecore, scoutcore and naturecore aesthetics, all of which celebrate connecting with nature. Or, at least looking like you connect with nature.
Dressing In Gorpcore Street Style
The gorpcore aesthetic is an easy fashion style for men and women. Its mainstream appeal can be attributed to its combination of comfort and utility. Gorpcore prepares you for the elements and outdoor activities, but it's still comfortable like everyday clothes.
As for the gorpcore fashion aesthetic, its colors tend to be earthy or nature-inspired. Think browns, grays, greens, and oranges. Rockstar Original carries a variety of pieces that fit in every gorpcore’s closet, including beige, brown jeans, and orange jeans. It’s no surprise that gorpcore fashion is popular among fans of streetwear fashions, as the ability to look effortless combined with functionality is popular in today’s world.
Ultimately, with the gorpcore street style, silhouettes tend to be looser and baggier, so it’s easy to layer. The pants are often wide with pockets for comfort; however, they can also be slim, so they are easy to tuck into boots while in nature. Cargo jeans loosely fit with oversized pockets go well with a fitted graphic tee and a puffer coat or hoodie.
Gorpcore and logos
Logos and brands are important in this fashion aesthetic. The appeal is accessibility, so brands that are easy to shop for and that follow popular fashion trends are featured most often. The difference between the hypebeast aesthetic and the gorpcore aesthetic is that the hypebeast is all about brands and not functionality, and gorpcore wears useful fashion pieces that are intended for the outdoors.
