    I define it as a more polished,pop and futuristic rock style.Please post some inspiration pictures.Nylon magazine promotes this style a lot.It is about ankle boots,intense colours,graphic tees,leather jackets

    thank you hot topic: for without you, the underground scene would not be mainstream. without you, one would actually have to sew on the patches to their punk jacket, the consumer would actually have to know how to silk screen. thanks to you, we no longer have to burn holes into our shirts with cigarette buts, or fade our own rock shirts. thanks to you, all the leather jackets and boots are pleather. thanks to you our neon painted fingers adorned with faux punk cuffs no longer have to bleed or build callouses from putting pyramid studs on by hand or by actually playing the guitar.... thanks to you, there is no alternative.

    sorry but this and the people pictured in this thread hardly have/represent "alt rock" style. This is more of a candy coated explosion of today's already washed out trends

    i'm not sure that i quite understand this..i was thinking of like after grunge was over and the alternative scene blew up there was a certain style in the mid to late 90s..like when no doubt first came out and when the movie "clueless" came out.

    Well, everybody sees alternative look in a dïfferent way. IMO alternative is not very different from indie style. I mean the real indie. It is all about looking different, dress in your own style, which includes even DIY. It's not so extragavant as for example punk is. For me, alternative is about jeans, cardigans, band t-shirts or t-shirts with funny motives, hats, bracelets and many things that aren't currently SO in (well, cardigans maybe are). Kick me if I am wrong

    I absolutely adore the look, but it's overkill

    i kind of agree-it is called alternative for a reason, and the fashions in NYLON are more of what you would find in mass production at stores like Forever21. Plus, the alternative music scene is so different now, I can't call any of these true alt music style at all
