A new fashion trend has emerged, and it’s inspired by European athletic fashion. The “blokette” aesthetic is a combination of the coquette aesthetic and “blokecore,” or “bro” aesthetic. It blends sporty attire with hyper-feminine fashion like leg warmers, frilly details, and lace. The blokette aesthetic combines the romance of the coquette style while embracing the carefree attitude of blokecore.
Héctor Bellerín, 28-year-old Spanish soccer player for Sporting CP, is the poster boy for blokecore. Bellerín is known to be one of the most stylish athletes in soccer. His style is the perfect balance between edgy streetwear and high fashion. People on TikTok have been seen recreating his outfits with clothing items like soccer jerseys, slacks, and layered jewelry.
Emma Chamberlain has been seen rocking Adidas Sambas paired with tan wide-legged trousers. You can bet this laidback look will make its return for summer.
The rise of blokette core is also responsible for the resurgence of athletic sneakers — Adidas Sambas in particular. Influencers like Ruby Lyn have hopped on the Adidas sneaker train, and the fashion girlies are eating it up. Just know to expect Adidas Sambas in everyone’s sneaker rotation in 2023.
