Indie Playlist

Posted on

Today’s indie snubbers of mainstream are a different brand. They’re a new crop of Warby Parker-wearing, Etsy-loving devout followers of barista culture and the resurgence of record stores. Bottom line? Hipsters.Love.Thrift. But with all this affinity for the second hand, one would assume indie designers would retail at shockingly low price points. Wrong. The latest offbeat designers have been upending that notion and selling at exclusive online retailers under the veil of uncommon luxury.

I’m here to help solve your overpriced indie shopping woes with my ticket to bargain hunting in true hipster fashion.

These are some of the best pieces from today’s indie namesakes and newcomers. You can riff off the borrowed from the boys look or pay an ode to 90s mininmalism. Whatever you choose, knocking off an indie style statement should be as easy as burning your favorite playlist.
