Claire Boucher, AKA electro witch-pop musician Grimes, doesn’t seem to have too much in common with Sleigh Bells frontwoman Alexis Krauss. These two killer performers might have drastically different music styles, but they were on the same page fashion-wise, at least, at Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend in Chicago, where they both rocked out in the ultimate easygoing rockstar uniform of shorts, sneakers, and ripped tights.

We’ve always loved Grimes for her severe baby bangs and blunt cut, but she switched things up by debuting her new long hair (!!).She pleated her waist-grazing new ’do into two thick pigtail braids, which added a pop of light to her otherwise all-dark outfit: baggy shorts, ripped tights, and platform sneakers. In other words, the easiest summer outfit for musicians (and just lazy dressers) alike. Alexis Krauss clearly agrees, since the Sleigh Bells singer struck a similar note onstage Saturday wearing a loose graphic t-shirt, studded denim cut-offs, and- what else?!- her trademark white Keds. Oh, and look closely and you’ll see that her tights (which she later removed) are ALSO ripped. Coincidence? Probably, but we still love it.

What do you think about Grimes and Alexis Krauss’s casual Pitchfork looks? Which musician’s shorts, tights, and sneakers combo do you most want to copy?
