Music Video Inspiration: Lazy Summer Fashion Inspired By The Police’s Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Anyone who knows me is aware of my undying love for The Police. As a child of the 80’s, the band and their music went down on my permanent record of Most Awesome Bands of All Time. Most notable was the amazing voice and swagger of their lead singer, Sting (a.k.a. Gordon Sumner.)

Although Sting had a gazillion amazing looks, I’ve always loved this island cool look he was sporting in the video for the classic song, “Everything She Does Is Magic.” It’s a cute look that’s amazing on a guy but a girl can take cute inspiration from it. I mean, if you want to go “sloppy chic,” this would be the way to do it.

Get yourself a men’s grey sweatshirt from Old Navy and cut off the neck and arms right below the shoulders. You can keep the hood if it has one (I would, even though Sting didn’t rock one.) Wash it. If you want to make it really girly and glam, cut slits around the bottom about every inch and weave a satin or grosgrain ribbon through it and tie a bow at the side.

Rolled summer-weight pants are always adorable on anyone and you can make them look impossibly cool by wearing them to death. I’d add these gorgeous Soft Pants from Gap.

This look is screaming for cute, edgy sneakers. Black ones. You can get these great Converse One Star kicks at your local Target for about $30.

The piece de resistance of this look is in the accessories. The straw shallow crown fedora is a great option and is adorable for summer. Grab this Mint by Goorin Shallow Crown Fedora at your local Urban Outfitters.

I’m an accessories nut and would recommend some gorgeous earrings and a cool bracelet to keep this from looking too masculine. These  Low Luv x Erin Wasson Thunderbird Stud Earrings are adorable and just enough for a lazy summer day. Add this earthy-chic By Malene Birger Baskin Bangle Set and you’re ready to go.

I mean, how cute is this look? Pretty much guaranteed everything you’ll do in this outfit will indeed be magic.
