How To: Shop Streetwear & Street Style

If you're a student you'll know that adulting and living your best life don't always go hand in hand, sometimes you have to make decisions you were, and still aren't prepared for. Such as, saving your money by staying in or having a night out with your mates, forgetting about your financial situation and worrying about it the next day when you're most likely hungover and dreading to look at your bank balance.

With the information we drop below, you'll find a balance and be able to do both.

Streetwear isn't only what sneakers you have on your feet, it's your entire look. We've created a list of different retailers that sell affordable clothing and sneakers that you can throw together, to create the perfect streetwear outfit.

1. Zalando

First up we have Zalando, a well known online store with a substantial amount of brands, you're practically spoiled for choice. Not only are there a variety of popular streetwear clothing brands such as Champion, Kappa, The North Face & Fila to choose from, but there are a bunch of sneakers and accessories you can find as well. If you want to create an outfit and acquire items for an affordable price, Zalando is a shout.

2. oki-ni

A luxury retailer with premium, high end brands and pricing. If you've got the cash & can afford it oki-ni is our recommendation for the Stone Island or Canada Goose jacket you have your eye on. If you want some Valentino's too, this is the site to shop on. Clearly, oki-ni is at the other end of the price spectrum, but, they do have regular sales, to save some more cash sign up to their mailing list.
