When you think about the skater style, you typically think of a skater boy – and that’s not just because of the popular Avril Lavigne song! Guys will traditionally adopt this look, and it’s mainly because skateboarding was stereotypically popular with young men and boys back in the day. 

Nevertheless, it’s starting to take off in the female department as well. More and more women are adopting the skater style, and I’m interested to know why? What’s made this trend so popular amongst women, and is it here to stay?

What is the skater style?

When we talk about the skater style or the skate fashion trend, we’re talking about something that’s been around since the 70s. The 90s were the decade where it really kicked off and became a core fashion style, and it’s the idea of adopting skate culture. This means wearing things that are practical and comfortable, often adopting a more relaxed look. There was initially an air of ‘I don’t care’ about the skater style that really helped its popularity. Nowadays, some massive brands have dedicated themselves to this style, many of which now make products for women. 

Everyday comfort

Perhaps the main reason this trend is speaking out to women is that it advocates the idea of dressing for everyday comfort. This is similar to how the athleisure trend is so popular, encouraging people to dress comfortably, yet retain practicality. If you look at some of the best gifts for skateboarders, you’ll see that the clothing items are all very relaxed. For decades, women have always had to squeeze into outfits or feel like they need to sacrifice comfort for style. As such, the skater trend is a welcome relief from all of this, providing comfortable shoes, relaxed oversized hoodies, and comfy trousers. It’s a way to dress how you’ve always secretly wanted to dress, but now it’s stylish!

Famous skater girls

Another reason for the rise in popularity of skater girl fashion is that there are many famous skater girls around right now. Granted, you might not be able to conjure up the names of any professional female skaters – or male ones for that matter! However, a lot of celebs have been seen adopting this fashion trend. Miley Cyrus is often seen wearing skater clothing, and another big one is Zendaya. Both of these women are known for their fashion and style, with huge audiences. If they’re advocating the skater style, it’s only natural that their fans will copy the look!

Overall, it does feel as though the skater fashion style is here to stay. It has already been around for decades, but women have only really started taking to it recently. As more and more girls start trying out the outfits and enjoying how they look and feel, you’ll see the trend flourish. The best thing about it is that you literally don’t need to know anything about skateboarding. I think that’s what put women off in the past, but now you can just wear the gear without immersing yourself in skater culture. 

 

Stunning Swimwear Fashion for Women and Kids

*Collaborative post.

I know we are in the middle of winter, but I am shopping for summer pieces in the January sales, and Swimwear Fashion is on the list. The January sales are in full swing and I am loving the amazing bargains. I love browsing various fashion brands during the sales in search for great deals. There are great swimwear pieces I recently came across and I just had to get a couple for myself and the kiddies ready for summer.

The twins have swimming lessons as well which is another reason why I find myself forever buying new swimwear. They enjoy swimming and I am glad they do since knowing how to swim is important to us. I have been thinking of finding a new swimming spot for them like the swimming lessons from Seriously Fun. Their prices look really good.
