    kaiserfranzgirl, as in kaiser chiefs, franz ferdinand, they are really not what i'd call indie but hey. Don't think i'm being mean though i know exactly what you're saying i'm just disliking your music taste!lol

    I'd look at myself as a big indie fan but it doesn't affect my clothing choice ridiculously, i try not to look like one of the asses from a street corner, i don't wear converse because i think alot of people wear them just to fit in with a crowd.

    To the OP, just wear a pair of jeans and whatever you feel comfortable, be INDEPENDENT in your choice and at least then you will be fulfilling the true essence of indie i guess!

    So true. We're only bitter cos' we wish we were 17 again, sneaking into bars, wearing stupid blazers/70's ties/calling ourselves 'indie' and pretending to be individuals.

    thanks thats really helpful. I do need to stop being obsessed with indie stuff and just wear what I like, which is kinda what i've been doing more recently. I used to wear blue converse but now i wear white with black spots and red laces, not seen anyone else wearing them! I guess I was rebelling against the pink girly stuff I used to wear before. I just kinda wanted my own style, I was fed up of keeping up with the crowd.

    I don't like mainstream taste.
    Oh, of course, I mean Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs & co aren't mainstream pop at all these days.

    You like 'indie'. Just like everyone else.

    To the O.P: Just go to TopShop you'll find loads of 'indie' clothes there. Or alternatively, don't bother, save your money and wear what you already have/feel comfortable in.

    tbh id say someone who dresses stereotypically indie has a more creative and interesting fashion sense than someone who just dresses in jeans and a t-shirt every day.

    FranzGirl is adorable, leave her alone and stop being so judgemental.

    I dont see why everyone has to grow up and act all sensible. Im almost 20 and i wear a leather jacket, skinnies or levis and some form of stupid scarf, sunglasses etc most days I'd never judge someone on how they dress, id judge them on what they say to me personally.

    ^^ I think you miss the point. Well at least from my posts anyway. It was the general pretentious proclamation of "GUYS GUYS, look at me, indie kid over here, I got the style" etc that I found a bit embarrassing.

    haha

    You kinda took that out of context. Im just saying, from what ive read here alot of TSR users probably think skinny jeans make me look like a stick insect, stupid sunglasses make me look like a nu-rave prick and a stupid scarf makes me look like a pretentious art student.
