Dressing like a Californian slacker-rock princess is about to get a whole lot easier with the announcement that Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino is to launch a capsule collection for Urban Outfitters. Cosentino has said that she is “stoked” to be dressing her female fans, but boys “will look cute in a crop top too!”
Mirroring the lo-fi, laidback sounds of her band’s sound, Cosentino’s fashion taste is known for being equally relaxed with her signature styles being a floaty, floral tea-dresses with sneakers, or loose vests tucked into denim cut-offs. But whatever she wears, it’s always toughened up by her smattering of tattoos. However, the preview images from the range hint at a slightly more sophisticated look, with cut-away details and soft, sheer fabrics, which may be a reflection of the reportedly more grown-up vibes of Best Coast’s forthcoming second album.
Inspiration for the clothing line has come from the style of girls Bethany has spied amongst the crowds at Best Coast shows, as well as Cher Horowitz from Clueless and Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks.
The range is set to launch in May ahead of Best Coast releasing their sophomore LP in spring and heading out on a UK tour in June.
