Will the Real Trendsetter Please Stand Up
(Tori Hartman calls this style "Trendy", which I think is nothing but confusing. "Trendy" calls to mind a person who is all about the trends. I'm talking about a person who is all about wearing what works for her, but has such style in doing it that she winds up SETTING the trends.)
The true trendsetter/alternative will wear a random signature piece or favorite item, like Susie's sequin jacket, with everything or whatever and look totally normal.
Yeah. Not everyone can do that.
Another indicator of the alternative style personality? The ability to wear other styles, but as a costume.
