Sang SokSerey: Describes the rare Khmer hip-hop girl style

T-shirt, jeans or baggy trousers, sneakers, cap, gold chains and wristbands. These are all things that hip-hop dancers wear.These accessories elevate and transform the outfits from simple to chic.

Hip-hop girl Sang SokSerey, 21, says “hip-hop dancers adore wearing those things because it is easy and stylish for when we practise and perform.”

The combination of the colours is very important since it glamourises ones style and fashion. “I mostly dress fashionable depending on the performance,” said SokSerey, who is in love with all colours. “We will wear what we are asked to, but normally I incorporate the colourful pieces into my overall style.”

Coming from Western countries and being different from Cambodian culture, hip-hop style is a unique one and catches attention from others. “They look at us like we’re eccentric,” said SokSerey, “Some say we look like DJs, while some say we dress like we’re crazy.”

SokSerey isn’t insulted because she acknowledges that some people may not know about hip-hop. SokSerey personally thinks that when it comes to hip-hop style, it is definitely a message to the world about who she really is.

To put yourself into the hip-hop dancers’ shoes is to understand the real definition of the hip-hop style.
