It was only a matter of time before Beliebing reached the fashion-pack, and apparently that time is now. Let’s get things straight, we’re not saying go out get yourself a pair of drop-crotch slacks and a tattoo sleeve, but what we are saying is that hoodies – Bieber’s coverup of choice – are going viral right now. Here’s how Biebs’ became fashion’s new style icon…
The current Bieber fever is all down to cult label Vetements (makers of the £800 jeans the fash pack are obsessed with) who sent hoodies emblazoned with ‘Justin4ever’ down the AW16 runway, topping the look off with a Bieber-esque cap. Weirdly enough, show-goers went wild for the look. If Vetements’ other cult hits are anything to go by, expect a waiting list and instant sell-out when they hit stores.
Soon, every street styler worth her salt was digging out that trusty old hoodie. Worn under bikers and bombers, over floaty frocks or with jeans and heels, they make for serious paparazzi fashion fodder. Plus, it means you can rock your favourite leather jacket without shivering in these chilly March temps.
Now that you’re officially licensed to leave the house in your ‘I-can’t-be-bothered-to-get-dressed-essential’, the high street is bursting with them. Find them at everywhere from Topshop to Forever 21, or, if you’re a true Belieber, get your fix with a piece of official JB tour merchandise. Team it with a pencil skirt and add ankle boots after-dark, or wear with wide-leg trackies and kicks for a laidback sporty vibe. Oh neglected old hoodie, is it too late now to say sorry?
