Prep the Themester: Hyphy

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Those out of the Bay area might be out of luck, but as a loyal short bus follower, I've been to many a hyphy party. Hyphy, to those out of the know, is defined by the new world's bible (aka, wikipedia) as distinguished by gritty, pounding rhythms, and in this sense can be associated with the San Francisco Bay Area as crunk music is in the South. So what does that mean for your getup? Think fashion oxymorons: fur vests and tiny bikinis. Fat puffy sneakers, and fishnets. A grill and your favorite costume jewelry. Basically, wear anything outrageously luxe and fab and you'll fit right into your next hyphy party---just don't forget to shake some dreads for your favorite blogger :)

I don't live in the Bay Area (or even relatively near Cali, for that matter), but I love hyphy! The beats are so raw and the fashion is so tacky, but delicious.
