SZA has one of those effortlessly stylish types of fashion. From sweatpants and hair tied, to baggy jeans and sweaters, she puts the comfortable back in fashion all over again. With both her music and fashion, SZA takes a stand against slut shaming and shows that women should be empowered by their bodies and not ashamed by it. Provocative or not, SZA makes it known that it's her body and she'll do what she wants with it at the end of the day.
Billie Eilish is a newer face in the music world, but at only 16 years old, she already has such a huge presence in the industry. Billie’s fashion is very colorful and loose fitting. She describes her own style as “pretty weird” and has a very “tomboy” way of dressing. Vogue has already claimed the teen as Pop's Next "It" Girl.
