Our tips: how to buy HoMie streetwear online in Australia
At HoMie we’re proud to offer a range of original, locally designed streetwear garments including tees, long sleeves, hoodies, accessories and more. Each piece is unisex and designed to spread awareness of HoMie’s mission and core values, each produced with being kind in mind.
If you didn’t already know, 100% of HoMie’s profits go towards achieving its mission, to support young people affected by homelessness or hardship to equip them with the skills, confidence, and experiences to be more work ready and better prepared for their future.
It’s always more than a tee or a hoodie for HoMie – every purchase means deepening our impact within the community.
It means continuing to hold VIP Days for young people in Melbourne (and beyond!) and running HoMie’s own accredited retail education program each year – the HoMie Pathway Alliance.
Whether your style is heavily street or slightly pared back, there’s something in our collections for everyone. You might opt for an oversized hoodie for colder days or stock up on tees to tuck into jeans, flares, shorts or to wear over your fave mini or midi skirt. Better yet? Our tees and long sleeves are 100% cotton, meaning they’re super comfy to wear day in, day out – all while raising awareness of what we do at HoMie.
A hot tip from us? Don’t be afraid to layer up in cooler months – we love a HoMie tee over long sleeves and keeping comfy hoodies on hand. It’s important to find a HoMie piece in a colourway you know you’ll wear a lot – check out our HoMie Core range if you haven’t already.
Depending on your style, you can mix and match with bold, bright colours, or pare things right back with monochromatic tones. If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll know a matching tracksuit is a HoMie staple – see here for inspo. Whatever your style (our team are the perfect example of this) you can find a HoMie piece to style in your own way.
Buying streetwear online in Australia can be hard – pieces are generally oversized, taking hints from 90s street culture. Our online and retail team are here to help with any sizing queries you might have. Our pieces range in sizing from XS to XXXL but it can be tricky to know what fit you’re after, especially if you’re shopping online. Start by checking out our sizing videos here and sizing charts here. Size up for a baggier, oversized street look or simply size down for something more fitted.
We’d also recommend considering quality over quantity – look out for pieces that will last a lifetime. We’re proud to say HoMie’s ethical manufacturing process means garments are breathable, comfortable and made using ethically approved materials, and fair labour conditions.
Shop streetwear with meaning - streetwear and street culture has been around since the 90s, continuing to evolve into a unique and creative style making waves at renowned fashion weeks across the globe. Our collections at HoMie go beyond the boxy tee – the range becomes an opportunity to encourage important conversations, communicate values or important social issues (in our case it’s youth homelessness).
In summary, if you’re keen to support local social enterprises or Melbourne-based labels, or generally buy streetwear online in Australia, take time to consider your purchase. What fit and general look are you after? How is the quality? Does it align with my values or spread an important message?
