What is Indie fashion?

What is Indie Fashion?

Indie style seems to be adopted by every generation at some point. For me, I was a massive fan of Blur. At their peak I was about 16. I adored their music, their style, everything about them. These were the two wardrobe essential that I could not live without:

The velvet blazer


The perfect finish to any Indie outfit. This 90s Indie favourite was probably most commonly wore by Jarvis Cocker from Pulp. He wore it skinny as they came.



The Doc Martins

 


Cherry red was always a favourite, although I had black denimn. Equally as Indie, equally as cool:-)

The word Indie is obviously from the word Independence, which indicates a sense of indiviuduality and style. I am not sure if really this is the case as most Indie styles are copied from bands and then repeated through the crowds. However, it is a movement which says relevant.

Hana, my wonderful model for the day, kindly models some of my favourite current Indie outfits.

Sugarhill decadence blouse in navy






B Young pink jeans

Hana looks fab in B Young skinny pink jeans and Sugarhill decadence blouse. This quirky navy blouse hangs slightly lower at the back and has the funky chandelier pattern which is really symbolic of the Sugarhill brand. The jeans, simple and skinny.

I like to call this outfit "hug in a jumper". Hana wears a size 8 of this Yumi jumper, but it's oversize style, still makes you able to snuggle up in this knit, like a pussy cat in front of the fire. It's funky Aztec pattern, give it an Indie edge that's quirky and cute. She wears this with the same B Young pink, skinny jeans.

Yumi Tapestry Skater Dress with B Young black leather jacket 

This feminine skater dress looks super girly dressed with a biker leather jacket gives it a funky edge. A great Autumnal outfit.

So what is Indie fashion? I don't think we can define it. It changes through every generation. Indie style is often a reflection of the music at the time. It represents a longing to be individual and independant.


I'd love to see your favourite Indie styles:-)
