Maybe you aren’t sure whether you’re a hypebeast or not? Read on and find out!
1. You Don’t Have To Go For Every Drop
One thing that you shouldn’t be doing is chasing every drop like a hypebeast. The fact is, not every drop is going to be worth it. Along with this, it’s an easy way to find yourself running out of money fast. After all, there is something new coming out weekly. Because of this, you don’t want to purchase every limited-edition T-shirt that comes out.
2. Think About Your Lifestyle
If you work a 9 to 5, you’ll likely have a uniform that you have to stick to. If so, you won’t want to be wearing a PYREX VISION. This is especially true if you’re nearing 40 years old. Unless you constantly hang around people who resemble goth ninjas, it’s best to avoid this look entirely. That being said, there are plenty of clothes you can get that would fit the bill. Supreme sells work pants that would look great. You could even splurge on a stylish denim jacket from Visvim. All you need to do is try to factor in where you work, where you enjoy hanging out, and you should be able to come up with the right clothing tailored to your lifestyle.
3. Get a Uniform
Getting yourself a uniform doesn’t necessarily limit you to wearing the same outfit every day. It simply means you want to find a style and colors that speak to your preferences. By staying in that zone, you will find something you can consider a uniform. For instance, if you love the look of blue oxford shirts, you could always find different styles from various brands. That way, you can fill your wardrobe with similar shirts, but that is different enough that you won’t look like you’re wearing the same thing over and over. This can also help you learn how to avoid buying things that you won’t wear. If you find something and stick to a particular style, you’ll be comfortable enough to wear it. Find new great hoodies perfect for lounging.
4. Have Self-Awareness
You need to acknowledge your flaws. If you’re a ‘fanboy’ of a specific brand, nothing is inherently wrong with it. However, by developing a sense of self-awareness, you can find some of your style flaws and make the changes needed to address them. Do you wear bright colors all the time? Are you constantly sticking to the trendy haircut? These are the things you need to look at and examine to figure out your true personal style.
5. Reassess Your Priorities
You need to think about what you are prioritizing. If you are unemployed or if your side hustle is standing in a drop line waiting to flip some gear, you need to be factoring in your time. Many newbies make the mistake of not calculating how much time it takes to do these things. While you may have fun waiting in line for popular drops, don’t give yourself the false impression you are getting rich doing it. When you look at things without optimistic glasses, you are just a nerd standing in line waiting for the newest comic releases.
6. Don’t Stick To The Same Brand
Being a ‘stan’ of a brand isn’t inherently bad, but you shouldn’t box yourself in. While you can find brands that speak to you and that you truly love, you don’t want to go all-in on one. Try to mix the brands up and avoid becoming a ‘stan’ for a brand. If you find yourself constantly dressed head to toe in a specific brand, you’re simply a walking billboard rather than someone who is using their style. You don’t have to match brands from your head to your feet. You can switch things up.
7. Develop a Personal Taste
Don’t follow blogs and allow them to dictate your taste. Instead, you want to look at blogs for inspiration. You shouldn’t be simply copying someone. Your goal is to find what your style is. What looks good on others might not be flattering to you. Try to figure out what you like and go from there.
