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. 

 

Iconic Look: Lauryn Hill Signature Look

The lovely Lauryn Hill is the Iconic Look for the month September. I grew up listening to The Fugees and I have always been a huge fan of this amazing woman. Her sultry voice is amazing to listen to and her type of music is still one of my favourites. I find myself listening to The Fugees on my Alexa every now and again. Their albums are evergreen.

Lauryn Hill’s style was and still is so cool. She always stands out from the rest for all the good reasons, and it is clear she is always true to herself. If you are after the latest trends and styles, you won’t find them on Lauryn Hill. She is not that type of style icon. However, if you are after a true signature look, then she will be right up your street! Her style has evolved in an amazing way and she still looks so good, like she hasn’t aged a day. Another thing I really like about this amazing woman is her hair; it always catches my attention. Back in the days, she made me love locs so much! They looked amazing on her and all her other hairstyles always stand out and so do her accessories. If I am in need of a scarf or turban inspiration, Lauryn Hill would do the work for me.

3 Quick Ways to Dress More Feminine

If you are interested in how to dress more feminine, you are in the right place. It is super easy to embrace your feminine side and bring it into your fashion and style game once you know how the main tips. We sometimes get carried away with the busyness of the world which doesn’t necessarily encourage feminine outfits, especially if you work in the corporate world which is mainly dominated by men. A feminine wardrobe allows you play with textures, colours and more girly designs. Keep reading for fashion and style tips if you are interested in creating a more feminine personal style.

3 Quick Ways to Dress More Feminine

Shop for Feminine Accessories

The easiest way to dress more feminine is to add some feminine accessories to your wardrobe. Some of my favourite accessories are headbands, belts, scarves, and the likes. You can easily look more feminine just by adding a colourful belt like the lovely model above has done. Headbands are my daughter’s favourite accessory and it is because they are so girly and pretty. You can a headband with a bow or flower, or you can tie a scarf for a more dainty touch.

If you are low on budget and can’t afford to really go all out and shop for new pieces, just make do with some bright coloured accessories.

Go for Colourful Pieces

Shopping for colourful pieces is another quick way to create a more feminine capsule wardrobe. The more colourful, the more feminine, so you may want to steer clear of dark and monochrome colours, and go for more brights instead. Obviously you are not going to walk around looking like a rainbow just to appear more feminine. Instead you will be blending more colourful pieces together that look good. Colours like purple, pink and bright blue are considered feminine colours.  So a bright blue skirt would look lovely paired with a light pink blouse, and black heels.

Choose Well-fitted Clothes

To look more feminine you would want to wear clothes that are well-fitted. There is no room for ill-fitted or baggy pieces. You would want clothes that fit you like a glove. If your clothes are too baggy, it would hide your body, and if it is too tight it would distort some areas.

Do you prefer to dress more feminine? Apart from wearing dresses and skirts, do you have any other tried and tested tip to share?
