Fashion: Be A Rule Breaker

Those who break rules create trends - in fashion at least. Finding your own style can be difficult, especially when Madison Avenue dictates what's "in".

Meet Emily - she's young, she's hip, and she does her own thing. Check out some of her favorite outfits, and feel free to pick up a tip or two from the girl herself! (or just hire her as your personal stylist)

"Clothing is an expression of who you really are and what you are really 

feeling; it’s a way of wearing your soul on the outside..." Emily L.

"I love to mix costume pieces with everyday wear."

"..there is a type of revolution happening in fashion right now, where 

things like dyed hair, piercings and looks that would 

have been traditionally been considered alternative are becoming more 

acceptable and are even thought of as stylish

among the mainstream."

"Coco Chanel said 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. 

Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way 

we live, what is happening.' And how I dress (how anyone dresses 

really) is a reflection of that."

"I grew up during the peak of emo’s shift into alternative culture, so 

although I love Coco Chanel and Diana Vreeland I don’t have any

specific icons."

"I love skateboarding. I designed the bottom of my board for an art class 

last year, it's Frida Kahlo themed . It has a drawing of her face and lots of 

quotes by her on it."

"I feel like the photos you see of my style and who I have become as a 

person is a product of the evolution of emo/ alternative style and it’s 

growth into becoming intertwined with mainstream society."

"...I am more open to mixing contrasting looks like punk styles with more 

common on trend things such as items one would find in stores like 

Forever21, Hollister, etc."
