LOUD & TASTELESS: Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls

Every Thursday, AF profiles a style icon from the music world. This week, in honor of the release of Too True, we’re profiling Dum Dum Girls.  Front-woman Dee Dee Penny translates Dum Dum’s 60’s girl garage band sound into a rocker chic aesthetic, choosing dramatic silhouettes like bell-sleeved mini-dresses and all-over lace.  The band’s rotating line-up has always followed suit, often donning all-black or all-white garb for a cohesive stage presence.  Dum Dum Girls are so renowned for wearing zany patterned tights that artists have made them motifs for screen-printed show posters.  You’ll often see the girls sporting chic accessories as well, from wide-brimmed hats, bold necklaces, and platform boots to the quintessential leather jackets and dark shades.  And no Dum Dum Girls look would be complete without tasteful black liquid liner and vibrant lip color.
