If you want to be a skater, you have to dress the part. This page will help you get the skater girl look without looking like a poser.
If you want to be a skater girl, you need to know how to skate. If you don't already know how try to learn. Start by going to a local skate store like Zumiez or Element and simply buying a skateboard around $40-60 dollars. Practice a lot until you have perfected your riding technique, then start doing tricks. (The easiest trick to start with is an ollie).
Now, start choosing outfits. Skater clothing trends in females are a weird combination of scene and tomboy style.You can go to any skate store such as Zumies, Hurley, or even some Vans stores to find great skater clothes for girls. You're wardrobe should consist of:
- Skate shirts- T-shirts with different skate brands displayed
- Skinny jeans- You can choose from dark faded colors, to bright neon.
- Wristbands- You can find awesome wristbands with your favorite phrases, bands, or skate logos on them at Hot Topic and Zumies. (A popular wristband at Zumies is the "I ♥ boobies" bracelet that sells for $4-$6 depending on where you shop)
- Hoodies- Hoodies with neat designs are a skater's signature look.
- Skate Shoes- There are shoes that are designed specifically for riding a skateboard. They look very casual so you can wear them wherever you want.You can also wear converse or flats occasionally.
- Hats- You can wear beanies or Skate caps.
Makeup. Makeup is completely optional. If you choose to wear makeup, keep it simple. Use a light foundation and black eyeliner. If you are going out of there is a special occasion try wearing fake eyelashes or a thick mascara.
- You might want to consider going to a skate brand store for your clothes, such as Vans, Hurley, Zoo York, DC,Element, and Volcom.
