If the interweb, album covers, and music magazines are to be believed, folk bands just have the best style. They no doubt thrift most of their most excellent finds, and they all seem to be able to pull together a whimsical, on-trend, interesting outfit with a certain nonchalance and ease. You know how Hilary wanted a photographer to follow her around so she could get awesome hipster profile pictures? I want somebody to stage a myriad of folksy photo shoots with me. I mean really, look at these bands. Sit them down in front of something vintage or rustic, and voila: fashion worth emulating. Folk bands might be the single most influential reason I bought those hounds tooth shorts. Somebody! Find me a country farm house with vintage wall-paper and fetch my mandolin! It’s time for my close-up.
