Challenging the rules established through experimentation and continuous reinvention is not something suitable for many, but the desire to go against the flow can happen to everyone. Wearing underground clothing means this: getting rid of daily expectations.
The underground clothes reshape the human body and suggest new ways of relating it to the environment, through constant deconstruction and reinterpretation. An aesthetic that defies the norm, but designed to be versatile and accessible with bold cuts, monochromatic palettes and a considerable amount of layers.
How to choose an Underground Streetwear Outfit for Men
The Underground Streetwear style require courage and boldness, but must first find out what aspects of this radical fashion to suit your own personal style to create your own look. The beauty of such a style is that there are no established rules: this means that you can combine a variety of fabrics, cuts, textures and accessories to achieve a simple look.
In the idea that the Underground Streetwear fashion point to new sculptural ways that challenge the conventions, for the outfit you see in this post I chose a total black oversize sweater by Banggood combined with a pair of Rabbithole London leggins and Dr Martens Smooth Brogue Bex . The idea is to play with a voluminous geometric structure, mixing and combining fabrics, leaving out the prints and focusing on the weight of the material.
Use more layers
But the best tool to create a striking, cutting-edge man look is layering. We do it normally with clothes during the winter, so it’s something we’re already used to. In this outfit for example I chose a coat by Norwegian Rain that hugs the figure and creates a drape for a somewhat dramatic effect.
In short, the principles of Underground Streetwear Fashion go beyond mere aesthetics and challenge the ideas of mainstream clothing.
