Japanese term or phrase: ストリート系 (street kei fashion)
Is there any equivalent fashion term in English as \"Street Kei\"?
Street kei is a sort of casual fashion, very popular among young Japanese people.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Explanation:
In the US, we would call those clothes like that "street wear" or "urban fashion" [since it's an urban trend]. Another possibility is "hip-hop fashion/skateboarding fashions" since the big, baggy clothes and hats turned backwards or to the side were worn by young people in Shibuya (I live in Setagaya) were first worn by hip-hop musicians and skaters/skateboarers.
