How do you describe your style?
Keiko Lynn: Definitely vintage-inspired and a little eclectic. I like to take from different eras. I generally gravitate toward the ’60s, but lately I’ve been mixing in a lot of ’90s and ’70s.
Bobby Hicks: Mine is very classical. I tend to go toward the style from the ’30s and mix in some modern touches like fitted clothing and skinny jeans.

How do you describe the style in Park Slope?
Lynn: It’s very laidback. It’s very family-oriented. Comfort seems more important here. It’s not exactly known for getting dressed up.

So then what’s the most stylish neighborhood in Brooklyn?
Lynn: I would say Williamsburg.

How has Brooklyn style changed?
Lynn: I think as time goes on, neighborhoods are growing and the younger people are moving in from Manhattan. So, it’s starting to flow together. Before, each neighborhood has an identifiable style. But people are starting to disperse.

How do you feel about bigger designers and retailers such as Rag & Bone and Urban Outfitters coming to Brooklyn?
Lynn: It makes things convenient for me, but selfishly, I want Brooklyn to stay small. I don’t want to the boutiques and mom-and-pop stores going anywhere.

What are the spring trends you’re most excited about?
Lynn: I tend to love dressing in really bright colors, or muted pastels. Being able to wear pastels without looking completely washed-out is really exciting. I’m also excited about the longer hemlines. I’m either in a mini dress or a tea-length skirt.
Hicks: I love vibrant and bold colors, and it’s fun to contrast them with black jeans. Pink is a great color that I love to wear all the time.
Lynn: I’m looking forward for him to wear short-sleeve button-down shirts because he has really great tattoos.

What are your favorite shops in Brooklyn?
Lynn: I like Article& (198 Smith St between Baltic and Warren Sts, Cobble Hill; 718-852-3620), Bird (203 Grand St between Bedford and Driggs Aves, Williamsburg; 718-388-1655, shopbird.com), Beacon’s Closet (64 Guernsey St between Nassau and Norman Aves, Greenpoint; beaconscloset.com) and Catbird (219 Bedford Ave between North 4th and 5th Sts, Williamsburg; 718-599-3457, catbirdnyc.com).
Hicks: Beacon’s Closet, definitely. Artists & Fleas (70 North 7th St between Kent and Wythe Aves, Williamsburg; 917-301-5765, artistsandfleas.com) is definitely really cool. Brooklyn Circus (150 Nevins St at Bergen St, Boerum Hill, 718-858-0919, thebkcircus.com) too. The owners are the most stylish dudes I’ve seen in a long time.
