Channeling: Karen O's Wild Stage Style In Everyday Duds

When we picture ourselves having a big moment on stage, in front of a roaring crowd, about to release an onslaught of beautiful vocals — typically the kind of scene we only find in our dreams — you can bet we're taking a page or two from Karen O's stylebook. The lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is perhaps the queen of modern-day, onstage, rock-star style, as she takes to the mic in wildly colorful, avant-garde ensembles that are in no short supply of embellishment or attitude.
While O may have costume designer Christian Joy to thank for her bevy of electrifying ensembles, her fearless looks are still easily translatable in real life. And, on the heels of her showstopping Coachella weekend performance, we've pulled together the perfect shopping list that allows you to channel O's adventurous and inspired style, with or without the sea of admiring fans.
