Fashion Mixtape 3 is brought to you by the punked-out, pumped up looks of musical mavens Lissy Trullie, Grimes, and Santigold. Grab your air guitar and rock out in style to the beat of today’s hottest singers.
In 2009, this downtown darling swooned us with her husky voice, a serious rendition of Hot Chip’s Ready For The Floor and her glam-punk style. After three years, the songstress has made her comeback and released her very first album, Lissy Trullie. Lissy’s (born Elizabeth “Lizzy” Chesney) sense of style is a marriage of understated sex appeal and downtown cool. Get her look by pairing a boyish basic top with well-fitting jeans, a pair of high-heel boots and a dangerously red pout.
Grimes’s (Born Claire Boucher) cyborg-pop music is like a time machine that brings us back to the eighties, with electro-pop and futuristic beats and vocals. But besides her catchy music (re: Oblivion), Grimes’s eclectic sense of style is another aspect that put her on the radar. The confident layering of camo patterns, sequenced shirts and statement jewelry had us wanting more.
Santigold, formerly known as Santogold, is bringing back her cool with her latest album Master of My Make-Believe. Her latest work continues to emit the same urban pop reminiscent of L.E.S. Artistes and unexpected beats. Another thing to woo over is her urban jungle sense of style.
