*Party Fashion* EDM vs. Hip-Hop (Men’s Fashion)

Its becoming more and more evident that with the ever changing climate in the music scene that dressing for occasions is more difficult then ever before.

With music blending cultures and breaking down barriers what once  was taboo is now more widely accepted from a fashion standpoint between the urban club scene and Rave community.

Below are images from two websites that each cater to specific styles.  One website is completely Urban, while the other is completely for the EDM Scene.

Take a look and see if you can spot the differences between the two fashion styles or if the fashion division that once made our cultures so separate has blended so close we can no longer tell them apart.

Rave or club

The above image is the design on a Men’s T-Shirt going for the asking price of $29.99 Is this EDM wear or  Hiphop gear?

The Next Design brandishes the face of childhood television star Alfonso Ribeiro portraying his role of Carlton. Care to guess what type of fashion this is?  Oh and did I forget to mention a little secret Will Smith is a Hiphop Artist. Hmmm what do you think?

The Next Picture is A given essentially in the Photo it features an actual rave in the background but I chose this picture because it could quite easily be featured in a hip-hop atmosphere with the right jeans and kicks.  To me this showcases how much fashion is shifting in American Society.

This Final Picture is another beautiful depiction of what I mean by the lines being blurred in the fashion world 20 years ago a b-boy and a raver side by side would look like they came from two different worlds. Yet nowadays the clothes we all wear are so similar that we are connected through fashion and to me that showcases the beauty and power of 21st century music.
