Juliet Simms, the 24-year-old lead singer of Automatic Loveletter, showed off some amazing, sometimes-skimpy-but-always-stylish outfits on the Warped Tour last summer, so we were thrilled when she dropped by MTV Style to talk fashion. Juliet told us that the musicians of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s are the influence behind the loose-fitting, hippie outfits she rocks onstage. She also opened up about her personal style, the difference between looking good and looking “skanky,” the process behind putting together her performance outfits, and her fashion essentials. Watch the videos below to hear Juliet Simms talk more about style.
ON HER PERSONAL STYLE:
“I try to pull from male rock stars from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, such as Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, or David Bowie or Axl Rose, Steven Tyler. That’s like some of my favorite music, and those records are what I grew up with my entire life. So my style essentially is just rocker, male meets female. I also try to keep it not slutty or skanky.”
ON PICKING HER PERFORMANCE WEAR:
“I try to put together different outfits every night. So I bring essentials like my wet pants, faux jeans, laces, and fishnets, jewelry … whatever I feel is right at the moment. I can’t leave without my boots, whether it’s my platform booties or my cowboy boots.”
