Style Watch: SXSW 2011

Where: all over downtown

When: SXSW 2011

SXSW is that time of year in Austin where downtown is a cluster f*ck of people.  And with this cluster, comes a variety of fashion senses and an interesting collection of style photos.  Some popular trends for SXSW this year seemed to be: high waisted jorts, crop tops, plaid, loafers, feather hair extensions, and Native American inspired clothing and accessories.  What trends did y'all notice out and about during southby?

Hipsters! I love it. Not sure how I feel about all the asymmetrical haircuts, though.

Jooanna ... I'm still just laughing about that "blouse" we saw at the American Apparel sale. When you said, "this looks like it was in a play," I DIED. In fact I'm still giggling now thinking about it!

Dude, FEAAAATTTHERS. In terms of SXSW trends, I mean. So many feathers. The hair extensions. The earrings. Less Black Swan and more Native American though, like you said.

Tolly, I should have taken a photo of that community theater costume that American Apparel was trying to sell. hehe. And yes, Austin is turning into a bird's nest. Feathers everywhere!

I am so in love with those last three girls! They are adorable. Oh, and also that punk kid in all black!

I definitely saw tons of cropped tops and also shorts w/ thigh high stocking. It was a very "hipster hooker" look.
