1. Zella Day

This singer/songwriter and Arizona native picked up the guitar at age nine and I guess you could say the rest was history. Her sound harks back to old school vinyl of late ’60s – ’70s singer/songwriters. Her fashion vibes are a mix of ’70s rock and roll, hippie bohemia, and Western chic all rolled into one. Love her crochet knit dress? Check out this vintage crochet dress here.

Natasha Khan, aka Bat for Lashes is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. She has three studio albums, has been nominated for two Brit Awards, and shortlisted for the Mercury Prize twice. Her avant-garde fashion sense matches her artistic sensibilities.

I fell madly back in love with leopard print tops (as if I ever fell out of love with them!) after seeing this photo of her and immediately needed to look online for some similar options. I’m obsessed with this Missguided top and this cute cropped shirt from Topshop.

3. FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs is an English singer, songwriter, producer and dancer. The musicians that have influenced this multi-talented artist include Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Marvin Gaye. As a dancer, you may have spotted her in one of Kylie Minogue’s, Ed Sheeran’s, or Jessie J’s music videos. Her electronic R&B sound is reminiscent of Massive Attack with a hint of Janet Jackson. As for her style, the fashion industry has definitely taken notice. Vogue has named her the ‘Next Style Breakout Star’ and she’s rocked not one, but two Met Galas.

FKA Twigs definitely knows how to make a statement with her jewelry. Steal her look with these statement earrings here, here, and here.

4. Halsey

New York-based artist Halsey got her name from a stop on the L train. Don’t be fooled by her sweet pop vocals, there’s definitely dark and gritty undertones sewn into her lyrics. Her image of pop princess with an edge translates well into her fashion, which is like, if cotton candy mixed with pop rocks. Who else has got a sugar crush?

Speaking of crushes, I’ve got a big crush on her pink shag jacket in this photo. You can find a similar jacket here and here.
