This high-energy, super talented songstress burst onto the scene back when I was still feeling hesitant about androgynous looks for myself. But even back then, I could tell she was bold, smart, and unique, and now that I’ve done a tiny wee bit of dabbling in androgynous dressing on my own, I am just wild about her sleek, sophisticated, monochrome looks.
Talk about dedication to a defined aesthetic! Clearly, Janelle favors suits and tuxes as her staples, but I love how other eye-catching garments, fun textures, and unusual accessories work their way into her looks. I can’t imagine wearing any of these looks just as she does, but they inspire me to no end.
Also gotta repost my favorite video of hers. Because it’s virtually impossible to watch without smiling, tapping a toe, getting up to boogie yourself, or all three.
