The top five indie fashion icons
Kind of like the term indie music, indie fashion is pretty all-encompassing. Whether their look is vintage-inspired or modern and androgynous, these songstresses represent the different facets of indie style.
The Innovator: FKA twigs
Yes, the t in twigs is supposed to be lower-case. Whether she’s rocking beaded braids, dramatic eyeliner or see-through pants, the singer/songwriter/Robert Pattinson’s fiancé is constantly taking style risks – and they pay off!
The Minimalist: Lykke Li
“I’m kind of anti-fashion, actually. I’m more about finding pieces that will never go out of style,” the Scandinavian singer told Style.com. Li is known for her monochrome, slightly androgynous style.
The Eccentric: Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine):
Welch might be the most well-known on our list. Who isn’t familiar with her flaming red locks and penchant for dramatic lines and bold patterns? Her signature look still feels as fresh now as it did when she was starting out.
The Vintage Lover: Joanna Newsom
The American musician and Andy Samberg’s wife is renowned for her girly, retro style. She’s often seen in mid-century-style dresses, her hair long and loose.
The Individualist: Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes)
Khan’s style is incredibly eclectic. “If you have to dress a certain way to be cool or taken seriously then you’re not being true to yourself, and that’s quite sad really isn’t it?” she told online magazine The Quietus. Her look is sometimes almost tribal, with eye makeup applied like war paint.
