Style Hunter: The Girls At Free People's HQ In Philadelphia Give The Best Grunge

GALLERY >> Scroll through for the best looks from Free People's team in Philadelphia

Grazia’s Style Hunter has seen plenty of well-outfitted offices in her time, but none so perfectly prepped to hit each nuance of this season’s huge grunge trend like the ladies at Free People in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their stateside style crew have mastered the wardrobe deployment of 1990s throwbacks, with flannel shirts and bovver boots a-plenty worn ingeniously with a mix of preppy basics and flirty feminine florals and lace. Who knew pink pleated lace skirt and a beanie hat could be such fashion bedfellows?

With the arrival of the [a target="_blank" href="http://www.freepeople.co.uk/">UK site[/a], you too can get in on the action of America’s most luxurious but laid-back contemporary label. Scroll through the gallery above to see who’s wearing what – and most importantly, how.
