The growth of conversations around streetwear is driven by people’s preference for comfortable yet stylish clothing, a trend that took off during the pandemic.

People are clinging to the hobbies, habits and fashions they acquired during the pandemic. Facebook says the increased interest in streetwear is likely to stay.

“Streetwear is a relaxed fashion style that draws inspiration from hip-hop culture and skater culture. It often consists of comfortable clothing such as graphic t-shirts, hoodies and sneakers. The style first gained popularity in the 1990s, and today it’s more popular than ever thanks in part to collaborations between luxury fashion houses and streetwear brands.

“This movement has evolved to allow individuals to embrace their natural bodies and promote acceptance of others regardless of race, gender, sexuality and disability. As the blockages are gradually lifted, some people are aware of their pandemic weight gain, while others have found time to reconnect with themselves and appreciate their bodies more. “
