When Your Suitcase Is Your Wardrobe

What would you pack if you were going to be away from home for six weeks and had to wow hundreds of fans every night? Our favorite rockers do it all summer long. Come dig through their must-haves with us.

  • While on tour, one half of electro-fresh duo Data Romance keeps it girly with summer dresses, eclectic jewelry and anything coconut.

Coco Hames and Poni Silver are all we love about music and style wrapped into one very awesome female band (plus one lucky dude).

The indie darling’s low-key look takes a little more effort than you might think.

The flawlessly pretty songstress is a seasoned pro when it comes to taking care of herself on a grueling summer concert tour.

How the coolly-dynamic singer known as Marina and the Diamonds stays sparkly while on the summer-tour circuit.

How the superbly soulful (and super-sexy) lead singer of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals stays bluesy-chic and performance-ready while on tour.

Beyond T-shirts and sneakers, the Grammy-winning musical phenom (and luminous Cover Girl) spills her secrets to looking good and feeling lucky while on the road.

When French electropop artist Julie Budet of Yelle hits the road, she does not pack light. From glittery dresses fit only for a performer to her much-loved Levi's cutoffs, she's got a whimsical style solution for wherever her itinerary takes her.

We’ve asked the Australian-born singer-songwriter Lenka—whose whimsical, girly style is every bit as alluring as her lyrics—to open up on all things summer tour.

Though it pains us to do so, we'll refrain from quoting Troop Beverly Hills in this intro—though excellent, that project was ages ago for our favorite child star turned folk-pop rocker girl, Jenny Lewis.

Like her personal style, Ellie Goulding's music—a hybrid of indie folk and electro pop—is a brilliant juxtaposition of seemingly incongruous genres.

From her blunt raven bangs to her white leather Keds, Alexis Krauss—one half of the Brooklyn-based noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells—has the cool girl thing down pat.

It's tough to say which is more infectious: Best Coast's deliciously hazy, '60s-influenced surf pop, or band member/indie It Girl Bethany Cosentino's personal style—a heavenly fusion of urban hipster and retro California dreamer.
