10 fresh skatewear picks to add to your wardrobe

Our must-have streetwear finds, from art-print hoodies to embroidered bucket hats, and 70s style decks

words Hannah Bertolino

Skateboarding is having a major moment in mainstream culture. Besides skating becoming one of our favourite outdoor past-times of the pandemic, skate culture has infiltrated fashion runways, television with professional skateboarder-turned-model Evan Mock picking up a starring role in the Gossip Girl revival, cinema screens (see Jonah Hill’s Mid90s), and music. In fact, Avril Lavigne has even recently committed to adapting her 2002 anthem, “Sk8r Boi”, into a feature-length film.

Whether you’re an experienced skater or have no intention of ever stepping onto a board, we’ve curated a shopping list of ten fresh skatewear picks from lesser-known brands to add to your own wardrobe – from graphic crewnecks to patterned boards, streetwear-inspired bucket hats, and custom-made stickers. Scroll through the full list below before you hit the skate park.
