Hey everyone,

Do you feel like an impostor when you wear certain styles because of your race?

I know the "dress how you like" arguments. I agree. We shouldn't feel shut out of something because we don't "look" the part and dress in the clothes that make us happy. I'm just curious to see if people feel the same way I do at times.

Update: I like streetwear too but I'm definitely treated differently. I try to not wear certain parts of streetwear (hoop earrings, basketball shoes) out of fear of looking like a stereotype.

Alternatively, some of my White female friends feel as if they can't dress streetwear because they feel like they are "inauthentic." Like preppy sites and inspo, streetwear tends to overwhelmingly feature one type of person (american style street wear is mainly latinas and blacks and asian stretwear is mainly...asians).

What are your thoughts? Do you feel like this at times?
