Our youth is the prime time to experiment with our styles and find what suits us best. 

Be it a specific print or design, fashion is seasonal and many find themselves jumping in on the bandwagon and trying out these styles. 

As the year comes to an end, let’s look back at the five fashion trends our youths were rocking in 2020!

1. Air Jordan 1s

Streetwear gains even more popularity in 2020, and shoes play a big part in the look. The Air Jordans trend grew with the release of the documentary on Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan, The Last Dance

These Jordans offer a lot of colourways to accommodate everyone’s taste, making it an appealing choice of footwear. The freedom to choose between low, mid or high-cut gives youths more room to dress these shoes the way that suits them best.

These Air Jordan 1s, especially the Chicago Black Toe variation with the classic black, white and red colour combination, are commonly paired with a pair of baggy pants that fall nicely at the ankles. These outfits are usually simple and let the shoes take the limelight. 

2. Dr Martens

These Dr Martens boots are known for adding a slight edge to an outfit. It’s durability also allows consumers to wear it for long periods of time before they need to replace it. 

If you own a pair of your own or know anyone who does, you would probably have heard about the breaking-in period of these boots. The blisters. The bleeding. The painful walks. But beauty is pain, right?

Once they have been broken in, these boots are a pair of perfectly comfortable footwear for almost any occasion.

Lace these on with a flannel and a pair of black skinny jeans and you have yourself a classic 90s grunge look.

3. Cargo pants

Hugely popular in the early 2000s, these cargo pants made a comeback with more variations than before.

From cuffed hems to drawstring waistbands, there is surely a pair out there to match your preference.

Almost as comfortable as a pair of sweatpants, these bottoms are more tapered and come with functional pockets – which are a big plus! So say goodbye to lugging around a bag for a day.

These pants go with almost anything. T-shirts, hoodies and even a basic sweater if you’re going for that Kim Possible look

4. Shoulder Bags

Black? Pastels? Animal print? You name it, youths are repping these 90s shoulder bags in every colour and pattern.

Besides the leather with croc effect material, these bags are also commonly seen in nylon.

These bags are compact but spacious enough to fit your everyday needs like your phone, wallet and that extra makeup for touch ups.

Pair these with a pair of straight leg jeans and a fitted crop top to achieve the 90s Jennifer Aniston look.

5. Vintage wear

Fashion goes in and out of season but vintage wear seems like it’s here to stay.

Whether it is a printed shirt or branded jacket, youths have seemingly grown a liking towards the vintage scene. 

Vintage wear generally includes old pieces of clothing that are still high in quality. The unique designs of vintage clothing make it fun to collect. This also means that you’re not likely to bump into someone in the MRT wearing the same shirt! 

Looking to cop some of your own vintage pieces? Get ones with a twist from the local brand Vintagewknd or if graphic tees are more your style, you’ll have plenty to choose from at Loop Garms.
