Sometimes getting that homeless chic look is just easier to do by spending a bunch of money. We've put together a starter kit for everything you need to fit in with the best of 'em in Wicker Park and the Ukrainian Village while splurging a little lot for yourself. For this type of hipster-turned-whale, there's Warby Parker for the eyes, a warm leather skirt by Alice + Olivia for Blue Line delays and for the lips there's something juicy from The Violet Hour.
