Is Looking Like a Hobo the New Chic?

In recent years, as fashion happens, we’ve seen fashion change and trends evolve. A more recent trend that has come in full force is what I would love to call the “Hobo Chic” trend. We started seeing holes and rips in T-shirts back when Ed Hardy was in style. Celebrities, as well as normal joes, would line up to have their  Ed Hardy T-shirts ripped by Mr. Hardy himself.

Kanye West continued with the hobo look when he had his star-studded Season 2 Yeezy fashion show in 2015. On the runway, he displayed over-sized hoodies, sweat pants, tights, to name just a few.

Balenciaga released shoes that look like bricks, and which have been welcomed into the fashion culture with open arms. Gucci, Adidas and Louis Vuitton have their own version of the ugly/dad shoes as well. And the prices of said shoes will rock your world!

Fashion, as it always does, constantly evolves and reinvents itself, but never in a million years did one, myself included, imagine that looking like you don’t have a place to stay, or you live on the side of the road, would be considered fashionable or in fact high-end.

What’s next? Tell us what you think of this trend in the comments!
