Elaine Style

Okay this is just a quick post, I was going to dismiss this subject completely, but then took a second look and realized there is some validity to the New York Times article about the Elaine (from Seinfeld) look. Mostly during the grunge years of the show from 1989-1995, where dresses, denim, and hair in a messy bun were mixed. Of course this look wouldn’t be interpreted literally, but the elements of mixing floral dresses with masculine shoes, and layering with a denim vest would work today

According to The New York Times article, The New Adventures of Old Elaine, by William Van Meter (8/18/2010), the anti-fashion aspect of the show during that time, makes her style look up-to-the-moment now.   For the full article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/19/fashion/19ELAINE.html
