What it means to possess an urban style is deeper than many may understand. Urban fashion is usually heavily associated with the hip hop culture and discovered in obviously urban areas. However, it means taking pride in your image and incorporating diversity and culture in your daily outfits. It’s mixing the different fashion influences found from the diverse group of individuals you may encounter on a daily basis in diverse and heavily populated areas. Urban fashion isn’t just a style, it is also a way of living. It’s wearing what you want and not caring what others think.
