“My typ­i­cal indie-styled out­fit needs a piece full of prints like this jacquard jacket. What’s great about it is that it’s got an indie-boho vibe thanks to the gor­geous medal­lion mo­tif, and with hints of dark and muted red, there’s that vin­tage feel which is a key el­e­ment to nail­ing the look. I don’t know about you, but when­ever I look at this jacket, I see a rus­tic, in­ti­mate con­cert sur­rounded by wooden walls and car­peted floor­ing all over to set the cozy mood.”

“With some­thing so bold al­ready steal­ing the show, it’s only fit­ting to match it with sim­ple, un­der­stated pieces. Take this pair of blue jeans for ex­am­ple; while it bal­ances out the live­li­ness of the jacket, it also con­trasts the glam­orous and ca­sual moods – show­ing off a über stylish indie flair! While any sil­hou­ette will do, opt­ing for a re­laxed, cropped straight-leg pair adds a lit­tle twist to the reg­u­lar sil­hou­ette and gives you the chance to show off some skin (or shoes)!”

“I’m quite fussy when it comes to pick­ing boots and this bootie checks pretty much ev­ery­thing on my list! It’s got an al­mond toe to keep my feet look­ing slim, a block heel for bal­ance, min­i­mal de­tail­ing with only a sim­ple over­sized buckle and the per­fect shade of brown suede to go with my indie-folk mood. What I like most about this pick is that it’s not your usual an­kle bootie; the shaft is slightly higher, end­ing above the an­kle which gives an il­lu­sion of nar­row and slen­der-look­ing legs. When paired with the cropped jeans, there’s no way they will go un­no­ticed!”

Back in col­lege when I first dis­cov­ered and fell in love with the genre, I wanted so much to dress like an indie-folk band mem­ber – that’s how ob­sessed I was then!
