Like any other sports, the BMX and skate style are mainly about comfort and freedom to move.
However that doesn’t mean that the riders would drop their sartorial flair altogether. Even the scruffiest boy in the skate park follows a certain dress code.
A BMX rider or skater’s attire should complement the whole look, which matches the graphic decor, the snazzy rides and the music he listens to (punk, hip hop, and so on).
This winter, colourful hoodies are the main staple of London’s young riders. Skinny jeans are very popular now – although baggy jeans will never really go out of style. These should be themed together with aggressive and bold graphic t-shirts.
The ensemble is completed with skater caps from brands such as Rockstar or Obey, or bright skate board beanies from Neff or Puma. They are not too expensive for those who want to create a unique look, with each item priced at a minimum of £14.95.
