Our favorite outfits at the first edition of Hip Hub Hooray
A festival which brings a line-up with Sevn Alias, SMIB and Isha, dance battles, skate demo's and which tries to celebrate the culture behind it all. An event such as Hip Hub Hooray asks for the best outfits, combined with the best of local and international hip-hop tunes. A wild range of 90’s inspired outfits, jeans covered in leopard print and weirdly shaped sunglasses appeared while hip-hop lovers from all over Belgium arrived. We picked out some of the coolest fits on the playground.

Bas brought Piet Mondriaan to the festival
Let’s say prints on pants are the new it-thing for 2019. Bas wore a blue and white dungaree combined with a yellow vest from Lacoste. A classic white t-shirt and a pair of Low Nike’s with red and navy blue gave the whole outfit a Piet Mondriaan vibe. Count in the linear tattoos on his arms and the look has everything we need.
Elle and her boyfriend flexin' on vintage
A match made in heaven, directly inspired by the beloved 90’s. “I shop a lot of things in vintage stores, such as my pants and my shades. This actually is my daily fashion style, and my boyfriend seems to match with me pretty well.” Elephant pants, long sleeves under a shirt, shady shades? Seems like Limp Bizkit and Gwen Stefani took over the fashion world again!
Wouter using the oldest trick in the book, full black
You can never go wrong with a full black outfit. Combined with a pair of recently dropped Yeezy 500 Desert Rats and an orange crewneck this was the perfect combination of basic streetstyle and somehow risky pieces. Wouter spiced up his outfit with a linked chain from his local DIY store, which has been a trend for a few months now. The influence from punk in fashion is something we’ve been seeing for a while now. More to come?
Some other well picked outfits we've spotted while strolling through the festival area of Hip Hub Hooray:

Daarbovenop kunnen je altruïstische motieven ook in vraag worden gesteld wanneer je op sociale media te veel foto’s post van dit vrijwilligerswerk.
