As the clock strikes 4, you head towards the nearest Mini Stop for a well-deserved two-hour coffee break. You wander towards the sacred grounds of 3-in-1 sachets and foresee a premonition of caffeine-induced hyperactivity and some grueling effects of refined sugars—a glorious feeling!

Then, just before you could reach the cashier, you bump into a fiendish hooligan from the urban slums. His tattered jeans were probably from an early morning knife fight with the local pigeons. His wild and disheveled hair manages to tie up into a ball atop his head. His shirt showcases his avid liking to Supreme pizzas, maybe because of his limited food group choices.

Clearly his kind is not fit for this kind of establishment, he belongs on the street! That's true, but before you ward off the youth with your portable umbrella, let the Non-Fashionista explain why this supposed street rat is actually street rad.

Now, you may be thinking that pulling off this whole streetwear thing is easy on the money, but ironically, it's becoming something of a luxurious privilege: (1) only some people can pull it off; and (2) big brands and celebs are turning this into a high-grade lifestyle a.k.a. it's worth a ton.

But hey, that doesn't mean that you can't wear street and survive economically. Like I said, brands everywhere are opening new lines for this trend—brands you wouldn't even think of, like a certain Swedish furniture store.

Streetwear is the new fashion revolution

So the next time you see someone is delinquent apparel in a convenience store, compliment their socks instead of socking them in the kisser. They'll appreciate it, unless they weren't wearing any socks to begin with, but that's another trend to talk about.

Let me know what you think of this new classic street trend. Is it the perfect knockout look or someone to just knock out?
