What defines hip-hop fashion, and where do rappers get their clothes? The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC answers that question with the exhibit, “Fresh, Fly and Fabulous: 50 Years of Hip-Hop Style.”
In 2023, the world is celebrating 50 years of hip-hop music's influence on fashion.
This is the first time MFIT has dedicated an exhibit to a musical genre and hip-hop style, according to its website. The exhibit features sections about celebrity style, sports influences, and hip-hop glam.
Rockstar Original's L.A.-based fashion designers have a long history with hip-hop culture, drawing inspiration from such artists as Tyrese, Fivio Foreign, and Lil Durk to name a few.
Popular Pieces In Hip-Hop Style
Hip-hop has helped to popularize streetwear as well as athleisure looks in today’s fashion world. The fashion aesthetic of hip-hop involves different proportions. Mixing casual streetwear with more luxury pieces, whether handbags, shoes, or jewelry, also helps you succeed with this streetwear-inspired fashion. Finding streetwear fashion that works perfectly for hip-hop looks is easy at RSO.
Some of the most popular hip-hop-style clothing can be found on Rockstar Original for men and women.
Oversized Graphic Tees
Probably one of the most popular streetwear fashion pieces, Rockstar Original sells tees for both men and women. Our Can’t Be Tamed Black Oversized Tee and Harlette Oversized Tees are two great picks.
LL Cool J started the trend in the late ‘80s but Big Bank Hank from the Sugar Hill Gang was the first rapper to wear one in the first rap video. Try one in camo (another streetwear fashion trend) with the Diogo Green Camo Bucket Hat or in red, black, or white with our Octavio Bucket Hat.
This fun unisex hip-hop fashion trend can be dressed up or down and made into exclusive rappers' outfits. At RSO, we sell the On Command Camo Cargo Pant with an adjustable bungee cord waistband as well as the Kadja Olive Camo Legging for the ladies. Our Drip Camo Hoodie Track Set is unisex and features two cotton slim-fit pieces.
Kanye West popularized wearing leather pants with graphic tees for an all-new hip-hop look in 2010. Faux leather is a hot trend for 2023. Try our Pay Attention PU Super Stacked Flare Pant for the hip-hop fashionista in your life.
The oversized look is certainly one of the most notable styles from hip-hop fashion. The 2020s have evolved into stacked or cargo pants with oversized looks. Try our Carson Stacked Flare Jean or the Cato Super Stacked Flare Jean.
RUN DMC were some of the first to make wearing tracksuits a hip-hop thing for guys. At Rockstar Original, we sell a variety of tracksuits in different colors, cuts, and patterns. Our Rockstar Art Dep. Black Slim Hoodie Set is a favorite along with our Hadley Super Stacked Trackset for the ladies.
