OK, so we already know that punk style, and all the accompanying leather, chains, and studs, is in. Less apparent is the alleged return of hippie chic. I mean, yeah, we've been seeing a lot of fringed sandals around lately, and, sure, tie dye is having a bit of a comeback these days. But does this constitute the rebirth of hippie style? And, if so, are we going to have a good, old-fashioned hardcore-kid versus love-child fight on our hands?
We hope so! Witness these conflicting styles duke it out, and tell us which you'd rather wear, starting with the crochet halter above versus a leather tank top. [Left: $70, Free People, Bloomingdales, Right: $110, OAK]
