It is impossible to have missed the way that new augmented reality game Pokémon GO has exploded into our culture and onto our smart phones. Whether you’re truly aiming to catch ‘em all, or are using it as a new way to hang out with friends/family, SUBCULTURED has all the advice you need to be the best-dressed this summer, even if you’re the worst player.
First things first, if you’re walking about a lot, you’ll need a decent pair of trainers. Yes, trainers – the horror. The Pokémon Go avatar outfits were inspired by Adidas, so bag yourself a classic pair to pay homage to the game itself:
Or, if they’re a bit over-budget (student life, hey) try these cheaper alternatives:
There’s nothing like a breezy playsuit to keep you cool when hunting for Pokémon (as the avatars know best). Here are some of the cutest on a student friendly budget.
If playsuits aren’t your thing, you can dip into Spring Summer (S/S) 16’s nineties-resurgence trend with a cute logo T shirt.
AND you can team that with another 90’s classic, a denim mini skirt.
Again, you’ll be needing some comfy shoes for walking around catching Pokémon and taking over gyms. For example:
You’re going to get hot and bothered doing so much walking, so a lightweight T-shirt or vest is best. Grey and green are some of the hottest colours for S/S 16.
As for bottoms, distressed jeans are back with a vengeance.
Finally, here are some of the best Pokémon themed clothes/accessories around for both men and women. Wandering around stalking and catching imaginary creatures on augmented reality phone apps never looked so cute.
