As with many cultural movements, streetwear has been notoriously difficult to define. Streetwear is a distinctive style of street fashion and it includes clothing items such as t-shirts, baggy pants, drop crotch joggers, sneakers and caps. All these items are the basic foundation of any streetwear trend.
“Swag” comes from the hip-hop culture and it’s the shortened version of the word “swagger” which basically means style, not just what you wear, but how you wear it.
