Meet Hana, our shop girl, model, and all-around cool ladyfriend who we so lovingly refer to as "The Intern." Hana's got kick-ass style and the ability to mix and match like no other, so it should come as no surprise that we begged her to share some of her style secrets with the rest of us. In this series, Worn, Hana explores many facets of personal style.
The time of over packing has come and gone. If you're still in your early twenties, it's time. Shake off the illusion of quantity in favor of quality, sanity, and heaven forbid, serenity. Everyone else, it's not cute anymore, get it together.
In summary, you are not Jackson Pollock. Few people can make method out of the madness.
If I was still working that way I would be sitting on the floor with a bottle of wine in hand (no glass), mascara dripping, and a pair of underwear on my head. If you don't feel great in EVERYTHING you've brought, and can't combine with ease, we've got work to do.
I am still evolving, and honing in on these skills, but I want those hours of my life back. So here's to all of us, turning over a new leaf, or at least a step in the right direction (aka maybe don't pack that fourth pair of jeans).
Here are some crazy beautiful pictures by Haley Harned. I'd like to think they demonstrate how happy you can look with a couple of key pieces. You still have room for creativity -- don't worry -- and less room for error.
Context: I actually chose these simple looks prior to going on tour with my band Weird Year. So I didn't just lay out a bunch of items and pretend I was going away.
Weird Year, is a two part harmony (soon to be three), vocally driven alt. rock group. Check out our Bandcamp if you desire a soundtrack for this entry.
We hit Philly, Charlottesville, and rural Jersey for some shows. And although I did pick up some vintage in Fishtown at Two Percent to Glory, I primarily used and reused these pieces.
We were hitting the road during a strange segment of winter parading as summer. It was unseasonably warm, demonstrated by all the short shorts and short skirts. So, best of luck! Enjoy the warm weather and whatever adventure you get into. I hope you look good doing it!
