Really thought-provoking piece in the NYT Magazine this weekend:
The covered-up trend is interesting to me. I don't see much of this particular look they're describing in my neck of the woods -- we're too rural, I think. The irony would be lost.
I have a feeling the motivation, for some at least, is to find a look that projects a toughness that cannot be fetishized. Dressing like Lara Croft doesn't feel very "tough" anymore...
