You could call it the rebirth of cool… but vintage was never dead. And that’s what the Urban Underground Revival is all about. Speaking of cool… the temperature is falling faster than Dick Cheney after a Big Mac, or Wile E. Coyote tied to an anvil. A lapdancer’s G-string at Fleet Week? Okay, okay, you get the idea. Baby, it’s gettin’ cold outside, and cold temperatures mean cool outerwear.
Whether you’re waiting in line to get into your favorite club or strolling across campus to “go see about a girl,” you want your war cry of individuality to be heard. Here’s what’s trending in the world of outerwear. Witness it!
Time for trivia: the word jacket comes from the French word jaquet, which means "short coat with sleeves.” Well, no kidding. Did we really need the French to tell us this?
Vintage work wear jackets are hotter than Lady Gaga in American Horror Story, and that’s some serious hot. Work wear jackets combine blue-collar chic and old school youth culture. It’s Detroit grime meets Bethlehem steel, a celebration of industrial towns and rough-and-tumble neighbourhoods. Biker and bomber jackets will never go out of style. Denim, vintage dyed, and camo prints are all the rage this season.
Part skateboard culture, part urban thug attire, hoodies are classic college outerwear. It’s what you dress in when you’re playing hacky-sack on the quad. It's what you wear when you want to let your freak flag fly. While comfort is a key component of the hoodie, what makes the style a pop culture phenomenon is the way it can be customized.
Hoodies come in different shapes and sizes. Hoodies come with open fronts and funnel necks. The hoodie dares you to be different. Embrace it!
