Two Strains

So I’m dealing with a split fashion personality.  

There’s the adult, classy, put-together style, and there’s the hipster, boho, just-rolled-out-of-bed look and I love both of them.

So I’ll start with the classy.  Big trend is the skinny jeans tucked into boots.  (Like this: Michael Kors fall ’06 collection)

I see this everywhere, on everyone.  I still wonder how people get their jeans to be so smoothly tucked – but that’s beside the point.

Here’s another look.  Very simple pieces, understated colors, black.  From the Loeffler Randall fall 2009 lookbook.

The always lovely Rachel Bilson.  I don’t exactly think there’s anything special about the outfit, but she looks chic and classy.  Again, simple pieces, muted colors (except for the shoes, which are a nice addition) very nice.

And here’s Adeline_R – a Chictopia user.  Great simple look, nice sweater/jacket, t-shirt with a cute pattern, nice skinny jeans…  Nice jewelry too.

Chictopia user ClassyTrash in a nice layered look, a good mix of textures too.

Then there’s the hipster, disheveled look.  I guess I hesitate on this one because attitude is so important and I’m afraid of looking like I’m a fake (to be perfectly honest).  But regardless, I think these people look pretty cool.

Dree Hemingway, simple, but still cool.  The slouchy top(s) and the great skinny jeans.

Anyway, just wanted to share.
