When Hoopfest rolls around each June, there are always two types of “Hoopfesters”—the players and the fans. This year we thought we would offer a different perspective by focusing on Hoopfest street style.
Traditionally, Hoopfest teams of three try to bring their A-game in three categories: athletic skill, team unity and costume. But as the tournament continually grows and changes, so does the costume aspect of the team trifecta.
For the 25th anniversary of Hoopfest, both players and fans were on point with their street style. Most teams went with the sporty versus costume look. There was an abundance of Nike, Under Armour and Adidas apparel.
The overarching trends worn by fans were aviator sunglasses, Strideline socks, as mentioned last week, and summer festival attire similar to Coachella and Lollapalooza. You might even say this year’s street style could be referred to as “Hoopchella.”
