The mood on the runways has been distinctly prim-and-proper the past two seasons, which perhaps is why Elyse Lightner's bold, boho look felt like a breath of fresh air when we stopped her in Nolita last week.
Sporting a classic J.Crew camel coat and fringed leather shopping bag (found at a music festival, of course), Lightner's unpretentious, unkempt style had a distinct Americana feel.
