After living in several areas of Michigan, I have discovered that the personal style differs. Metro Detroit is much more fashion savvy, with the women always manicured and Gucci sunglasses nestled against perfectly coiffed hair. Marquette, overrun with the neo-hippie, employs more of a natural look paired with hiking apparel. Escanaba, only an hour away, is none of that, jeans and a shirt kind of place.
For a state that is broken in two, is there any sort of unified look? Part of this blog's journey will be to discover that look and more specifically the great yoop's look. Because the U.P. is what it's all about.
The runway's view on flannel, Isabel Marant:
Flannel in its original, work wear form (still sexy on a guy, at least in the U.P.):
My fun, sorta glam, sorta however-I-want-to-wear-it flannel:
Yes, totally rock the colored tights, you can leave behind the peach heels if you want. Black heels always work. Also, pile on the accessories, bright blingy bracelets, and dangling earrings, even if they don't match. Like always, have fun with you clothes.
The look of the U.P.? Or should we create something better, newer, a look that can only be pulled off in the Yoop? Or have I just completely overlooked that staple, seen so often it has become invisible to me? Whatever this look is, it will be great.
