LOUD & TASTELESS: M.I.A.

Every Thursday, AF profiles a style icon from the music world. This week’s icon is M.I.A., whose bright, crazy patterns have mesmerized us since the beginning of her career.

The controversial pop icon M.I.A. never disappoints us with her crazy stunts and her awesome outfits in equal measure. She’s become known for both in the music world, and you’ll rarely see her in a tame outfit or mood. She typically sports large jackets with swagger or an array of mismatched patterns, likely in a neon spread. Sporty hip hop gear crossed over into high fashion when she collaborated with Versus Versace for a collection of full-body patterned outfits in colors like gold, green and black. It’s not likely that she’ll stay out of the news any time soon, whether for her actions or clothing choices. Listen to  M.I.A.’s “Bad Girls,”  while you check out our picks from Nasty Gal and Urban Outfitters, all inspired by the goddess herself, of course.
