Since the birth of hip-hop in the South Bronx, New York City has spawned a number of street fashion trends that have been co-opted by both the mainstream public and larger fashion brands today. Nowadays, you see everyone rocking New York City staples like Yankee fitteds and 6-inch Timberland boots. Meanwhile, brands like Supreme respectfully pay tribute to jackets like the Marmot “Biggie” and designers like Virgil Abloh make Louis Vuitton pieces inspired by American flag outfits and Pelle Pelles, popularized in the 2000s by rappers like Juelz Santana. 

New York City street fashion influences everything, whether you like it or not. Our closets are filled with both staples that the rest of the world is starting to catch up on, and newer drip that make us stand out. Whether you’re a New Yorker that rocks Moncler and Amiri or a classicist that’s wearing a 20-year-old North Face jacket with a grey brim Yankee fitted, you know you’re from New York City if you own these pieces.
