Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Haim, And More Perform In Festival Style At 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards

Thanks to the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards, yesterday was a HUGE day for the MTV family here in Austin. Situated smack dab in the midst of the SXSW music festival, so many of our favorite artists took the stage in the name of MTV. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Haim, Joey Bada$$, Trinidad James and so many more straight-up killed it yesterday, musically and sartorially.

We're pretty consistently impressed with Macklemore's performance style, but this Southwest blanket vest situation has to be Top 10 so far. I mean, HAI, the weave of this thing is unbelievably festive. Mack took the sleeveless topper off mid-way through his set, but Ryan Lewis and the laundry list of guest features kept the fashion action coming with Wanz in a red three-piece suit and printed blazer, Mary Lambet serving retro '50s steez, and Schoolboy Q rocking a Supreme hockey jersey and printed bucket hat.

The sisters of Haim are collectively our number one girl crush of the moment. Not only are they totally badass performers who can wail and shred and racket on a set of drums and make the kind of music we'd use to soundtrack summer in the movies of our lives, they are really good at clothes. Case in point: the individual personalities of their outfits (polka dots, leathers, cut-off denims) being tied together by a common black base. ALSO, Alana totally outted Este for wanting dreds like our very own Sway Calloway, which we think is simultaneously the funniest and coolest piece of Haim trivia. Double also, that's so #sisters.

JOEY BADA$$ AND TRINIDAD JAMES

Earlier in the day, Joey Bada$$ and Trinidad James each took the MTV Jams stage. Joey and his Pro Era crew were a sea of rambunctious snap backs, bucket hats, and colorful street wear. Crazy prints, flashy graphics, sagging pants (h/t Bieber?), and exuberant youth canvassed the stage to the point where Joey (who BTW was repping Ecko Unltd.'s play on Comme des Garcons: this "Happy Heart" tee) and his boys were pulling fans up from the crowd and onto the stage. On the other tip, Trinidad James went for major flash with gold all in his chain, head-turning, bleach-riddled denim, a mock baseball jersey and a red headband.
