Felicity Porter: Style Icon?

Does Felicity Porter's wardrobe of baggy sweaters, mom jeans and Converse sneakers qualify her for Style Icons status? "1998 Laura" says: of course! It is a testament to how dramatically fashion changes that when Felicity aired I thought she was the epitome of college cool. She dressed like everyone my age did then - preppy and cozy with a few remnants of grunge and a sprinkling of plaid:

75% of Vancouver hipsters have since adopted her messy topknot hairdo.

Even now, watching Felicity hoist her leather backpack to her shoulders makes me want to go to the library and think about shit.
