Indie clothes are a mix of past fashion and new styles. Hats, bright colors, leggings and light blouses are often combined with headbands, jeans and cut-offs. Indie clothing isn't as much a style as it is a fashion statement.
Indie fashion encompasses handmade clothes made from recyclable materials that differ from mass production clothing. Indie fashion often combines a trendy blouse with retro jewelry or a scarf with a print pattern. Designers avoid standardization in creating indie ensembles and often work with lesser-known clothing manufacturers. Indie clothing exudes a rebellious or independent subculture style that is different from mainstream designer fashion.
