LOUD & TASTELESS: Cults

Every Thursday, AF profiles a style icon from the music world. This week, we’re highlighting Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion of Cults. Piles of black clothing compliment the duo’s haunting sound.

 

Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion tend to have slight variations of the same outfits almost every time I see pictures of them or videos of their performances. And that’s OK with me. Follin sticks to either a skater dress/shirt and pleated skirt combo, usually in dark colors. If it’s summer, bare legs and sneakers are involved. In winter, she warms up with black tights. Oblivion sports various button-down shirts (usually a crisp white), frequently buttoned to the top and paired with either jeans or suit pants. Sometimes he’ll throw on a tie, other times he’ll throw on a cardigan. Regardless, he always looks polished and she always looks cute in a not-to-be-messed-with way. Together, they make a great duo, musically and stylistically. We’ve picked out some pieces from Urban Outfitters that are likely to be in their closets or packed away for tours. Listen to their song “High Road” from their most recent release, Static, via Soundcloud while you check out our Cults-inspired Pinterest board, linked below.
