Whether you're new to streetwear or looking at how to keep up with all the trends we're here to help with the ultimate streetwear guide for 2022!
Streetwear is a strange and complex beast that has notoriously made a big jump in recent years, going from cult followings to an icon in the world of luxury fashion. Where did this come from? A lot of people believe this started with the sub culture of skateboarding during that era along with its roots in music with the growth of hip-hop culture over the years.
Today, streetwear has a multi-faceted persona, mixing casual look, ready-to-wear fashion, and often luxury paired with exclusivity.
Culture Kings is the home of all of it being world famous for streetwear, providing the outfits and pieces to create the best streetwear aesthetic possible.
What You Need To Know About Streetwear In 2022

3. GRAPHIC TEES
A graphic t-shirt can tell a thousand stories.
They're the most direct way to visually express something about you. The graphics can show places you’ve been, music you listen to, the shows and movies you like!
Streetwear wouldn't be what it is today without the iconic graphic tee. Cop a couple in different colours to reflect your mood, and you'll always have a streetwear 'fit.
With Culture Kings having one of the widest graphic t-shirt collections on the planet, they can be a key piece in letting you tell your story!
Here's Our Favourite Graphic Tee Brands:
- Goat Crew
- American Thrift
- Music Merch
- Mitchell & Ness
4. CARGO PANTS
There has never been a question as to whether the Cargos were practical - with its handy pockets to carry essentials.
But whether they're a fashion trend is something that people have been debating over the years. But now more than ever both Cargo Shorts and Cargo Pants are without a doubt back in the game.
Cargo Shorts are the perfect combination between style and utility - something that a lot of shorts can't offer. Whereas Cargo Pants are bottoms that can essentially be paired with any streetwear fit, particularly when going for that baggy look.
Functional and Stylish cargos are here to stay, and with fashion moving towards more utility and versatility when it comes to styling, we see these shorts and pants being timeless pieces for years to come.
5. Jordan 1's
When it comes to Air Jordan 1 Highs, Mids or Lows, it's easy to let the sneakers do all the talking, however, it's best to avoid this.
With so many Air Jordan 1 colourways out there it can be hard to give specific instructions on what to wear with your kicks. Although there is a solution and that's keeping your fits neutral. A black or white top, blue or black jeans, and you will be set.
A lot of times, this looks much cleaner than trying to match the exact shade of red or blue from head to toe. Overly coordinated fits tend to do the opposite of what you intend but there are always exceptions.
Our best recommendation would be getting a Graphic T-shirt with subtle details that use the same colours instead of buying a brightly coloured T-shirt to go with your 1s.
There really are so many different ways to wear Jordan 1's! Whether it's for that summer fit with shorts, socks and a graphic tee or finishing off that winter look layering up with cargo pants, hoodie and jacket.
Whether you want to wear pants a little more tapered and cropped to show off the Jordan or some stylish baggier fitting pants for a street look.
The most important thing when it comes to styling Jordan 1s is to wear them confidently and your outfits will look great no matter what.
