Stylish Musicians

Music and fashion are kind of like peanut butter and jelly: they're made for each other. Would the Sex Pistols be as memorable without their punk rock style, which was so notably executed and elevated by Vivienne Westwood's visionary creations? Not in our minds! Could you image Madonna's iconic Blonde Ambition without her Jean Paul Gaultier-designed cone-bra corset? Certainly not! And where would the fashion world be if Marc Jacobs had never created his grunge-influenced collection for Perry Ellis? (We don't even want to know.) Needless to say, it's impossible to imagine how music would function without fashion, and vice versa too. Obviously this duo plays a major role in our lives, as we've always got our eyes peeled for the latest fashion trends and our ears open for the next new artist to add to our office playlists, which leads us to today's story. For this instalment of What They Wear, we decided turn the spotlight on six musicians who are not only talented, but also happen to be daring tastemakers too. From Lykke Li's vintage chic to Alison Mosshart's effortless insouciance, we have a feeling you'll find them inspirational too.

Lykke Li
We have a serious crush on Swedish singer Lykke Li. The 24-year-old indie artist is insanely talented; her debut albumYouth Novels is a must buy, plus we adore her obsession-worthy remix of the Kings of Leon's "Knocked Up" and new song "Possibility," which is a part of the Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack. In addition to her professional accomplishments, Li has personal style galore and always wears outfits that feature a masterful mix of pretty pieces with touches of masculine scruffiness. The result, dear readers, translates into unique hipster look that makes us swoon. For example, at the Dior Beauty party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the J'Adore fragrance, Li wore a print halter blouse from the French fashion house's S/S 09 collection with a petite pair of vintage shorts, accessorized with a Longchamp Gatsby Bag (from F/W 07) and Robert Clergerie's Dorine Platform Booties ($594)
