Classic hipster: For those of you who don't know the term "hipster," this is the modern-day beatnik minus the surly attitude and penchant for tormented poetry. Martin Bowling's look is the quintessential hipster: cuffed skinny jeans, Chuck Taylor sneakers and thick-framed glasses. Martin makes the style his own by wearing a leather jacket under his wool coat and sporting a punky hairstyle.
Boho rebel: In the modern bohemian world, the perfect graffiti T is coveted as much as the socialite longs for a Louis Vuitton bag. Erin Bradley's blush-colored tank peppered with French typography is très bohème, especially when worn with colored jeans and a chunky ethnic-inspired pendant.
Vintage boho: I love the pairing by Jamie Bowles of this demure vintage cardigan and bright polka-dot skirt with these rock 'n' roll accessories. Hello peep-toe boots! Pairing them with black tights is straight out of W.
Cheeky hipster: This is the kind of look that one is seeing in all the recent Nylon magazines, a fashion publication that features up-and-coming street fashion. I like to call it the "cheeky hipster," because the styling is lighthearted, fun and irreverent. I am especially enamored with the coordinating arm warmers, which Leah Craver makes herself.
Gypsy boho: Ashley Wiley and Lindsey Good's ensembles typify the gypsy neo-hippie look. This style borrows heavily from ethnic pieces, such as the embroidered tunic and harem pants Ashley is wearing. Lindsey's peasant blouse worn with a flouncy jersey knit mini, tights and motorcycle boots updates the flower-child style of the 1960s, giving it an indie edge.
Boho chic: In the drear of winter, this outfit reminded me of the sun-kissed girls of Southern California whom I wanted so much to emulate when I lived there. Local fashion designer and former San Diego resident Allison McComas perfectly captures the feminine and careful essence of boho chic: maxi skirt, fitted top (both of which she designed) and layers of long, silver necklaces. California dreaming!
