When it comes to indie fashion, the topic covers from the cover for the head to the bottom of the soles. And as far as footwear goes, the Doc Marten, Converse sneaker and Vans are Indie cool. So are vintage shoes, the older the better, and if they have a hole in them so much the better. Adidas, Jimmy Choos and Vera Wangs are not acceptable. Jeans must be naturally distressed.
If you want to distress your own jeans don’t let anyone know you did. This can be done simply with a pair of nail scissors and a bottle of bleach. But not your $200 jeans, especially if your mother had to pay for them. Cardigans are cool as are blazers, hats, but never a baseball cap, scarves, waistcoats, ties and anything which is completely unique.
Indie cool T-shirt have to be hand-made (by yourself), printed with the name of a band or printed with a meaningful or thought provoking catchphrase. A pencil skirt is a must-have in any Indie girls wardrobe, but it must be printed with a picture of ChÈ Guevarra. But these days, a budding designer or artist t-shirt fits that description of being indie cool too!
This particular genre is a non-conformist type of lifestyle, to my way of thinking it is much like emo, but I suppose any true Indie, would soon set me straight on that point. Even some home hand dryers I saw in one exhibition displays an indie and artistic look. The name is an abbreviation of “Independent” his respect, music an movies have to be of the same genre. Nothing in the mainstream belongs!
Typically the Indie person is unpredictable, yet cool and you won’t find them voted for as the King and Queen of the prom, this would betray their uniqueness, and shirking of conventions.

Father’s day is around the corner and I hope that you have got dad a gift on this special day. Most people, including retailers, tend to honor Mother’s day more than Father’s day but that doesn’t mean it’s not to be highlighted at all!
