This week we’ll be highlighting local trends from the neighborhoods, cities, and coasts where our writers are residing, traveling and trendspotting.
Despite the fact that the ever-increasingly popular act of childrearing is trickling its tentacles onto the lettered streets of the New Yorkâ€™s East Village and Alphabet City, itâ€™s still pretty much run by the young, tattooed and trendy. So step aside, stroller-pushers. The EVil isnâ€™t quite ready to give up its hip cred. And now, as the days shorten and cool of, its fashion mavens are slowly trading in summerâ€™s uber-ubiquitous long cut-offs for sawed off leggings instead.
Theyâ€™re everywhereâ€¦ with cowboy boots, under dresses, on their own with long shirts and a low-slung belt, and even at times under those denim shorts. Get the look of the gentrified, not-so-rough streets below 14th and get yourself a pair of crop leggings.
