Local Trends Week: Cropping up in the East Village
September 25, 2006
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.
